Light is absolutely fundamental for a picture. Sometimes light is there and it can be all right, not great and not bad... it serves its purpose. Other times, we get lucky and the light is just right and creates this intense desire to take a picture that will hopefully serve it justice. When I saw the light coming through the shades in this picture I knew I had to photograph it; it fell perfectly across Lizzy and I was in love with the contrast that it had created. I love moments like this in my everyday life where something as simple as light, which so many people take for granted, can inspire me to pick up my camera. There is something so magical about simple moments like that.
