Becky Peters is one of my closest friends and I have always wanted to take her portrait. She is an amazing healer and acupuncturist – if anything ever ails you check her out at Blooming Lotus Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture. One of the things Becky and I have in common is that we just simply love being outside. We could not have chosen a better day for the photo-shoot – a gorgeous September afternoon with the first signs of fall approaching. Anyone in Texas knows the sheer joy of this weather after a sweltering summer! We went to my favorite neighborhood tree for some shots when a huge film crew showed up to film in that very spot. Turns out we were under the tree with Terrence Malick – director of “Tree of Life.” Rumor has it he’s working on a film starring Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling. It’s quite possible that we were standing right next to these stars – but I was too distracted by Becky’s beauty to notice!
