Another shot of my beautiful young niece Jade, my sister Carole’s 14 year-old daughter. Although she has the most gorgeous natural auburn hair with warm coppery highlights, I chose black and white for this portrait in order to minimize the bright red background and purple shirt which stood out too much from the rest.
