A Sailor’s Only Daughter | Sophia Stout, age 14
I was looking through photos one day and ran across a shot of one of my kids at the beach; dried sand on their face and in their hair made them look battle-worn and reflective. So I followed that feeling and created a fantasy-genre portrait of each of them. People who came over were struck by them, and I’ve been commissioned by other families to do portraits in the same vein. I call the series “Quality of Armor.” I love doing these, in fantasy or sci-fi, or just surreal settings; feel free to contact me if you’re interested.
