She came to the shoot with a bare face, and I photographed her completely as she was. Luckily, Genevieve was supportive of my vision, it doesn't happen too often. She seems to be completely at peace with herself.

I know this year was considered a sucker. Ghm. Wait a second. Wasn’t 2016 a sucker? Or are all the years to come about to become one?
