Happy Thanksgiving. Today I am thankful for friends I call family.

Here's a note from Angel explaining her thoughts behind the shoot:

"She does it again!!! The incredibly talented Iman Woods blessed myself and my Minion with these amazing photos. I wanted something special as a gift for my parents. I wanted our photos to capture the period, culture, and essence of the Zoot Suit era, as this was a defining period of time in Chicano history. Not to mention an era and struggle that my father holds near to his heart. While the Chicano struggle of this era, as well as decades to follow is not necessarily taught or discussed in todays history books and classes, it is far from forgotten. And though Iman was not completely familiar with the history, as many people aren't, she nailed it with these photos. They capture everything I'd hoped for and more. And I was glad to be able to share the history with her during this shoot. Thank you Iman! I am blessed to call you a friend."

My girl and artist extraordinaire, Angel, wanted to create a timeless family memory. She showed me a photo that she wanted to emulate and brought her handsome son (yes, she defies time and aging) to the studio. In processing, I tried to dance a fine line between "old" and "new". These will be featured in the family gallery

The first is Dark Sepia, the second is Vintage Violet and the third is Old World Vibrance.

Which version is your favorite and why? I'm compiling the best Lightroom Presets I've written for a future collection of retouching tools. So excited to share these!
