Five Favorite Portraits of Yren
This is the only picture we'll ever see of Yren in that wig. A size four, it is too small for her--despite clipping the edges--and kept popping off her head. I wedged her crown down around it just to keep it in place long enough to take this picture. I think she looks nice in lighter wig colors; this one is Monique's "Paris" in chestnut brown.
I'm sending the wig to Monika in hopes that Fern's head might be just enough smaller to be able to wear it.
In pictures like this, it's easy to imagine her as the daughter of an English sea-captain and a beautiful island girl.
Unlike most of my photo shoots, every shot in this one looked good! Yren was very pleased with me for working hard and improving.
We went outside to the backyard for the natural light. The background of dark pines just makes her skin look so glowing, and her eyes so blue.
As I get to know Yren better, I'm not expecting her to conform to my expectations of her as I used to; I'm letting her be herself. And this is part of who she is.
