When I first met her, she introduced herself as, “Katrina, like the hurricane.”

Getting to know her a little bit over the course of a week, both in and out of the creek, my take is the name is the only thing she has in common with the hurricane. I found Katrina to be calm and poised, to the point of serene, and even when she’s laughing and having fun, she’s nothing but sunshine.

So when it came time to ask for permission to use particular photos from our Creek Shoot together, this absolutely had to be one I requested. For me, this nearly perfectly still creek water, the soft sunlight bathing the scene, the hint of mist on the water, that little smile and gorgeous body art, all combine to perfectly match my personal impression of Katrina.

I’m glad she said yes to this one.
