My friend Valeria is a wonderful model and a lovely human… She endures my photo shoots with my students without a complaint…ever! She is smart and fun and obviously beautiful! I was walking back through some files of the last year this morning looking back on the shoots and events. I had not edited this photo for some reason and as it is just about time for the fall quarter to start…I thought I would bring this one to the light of day! Thank you Valeria for your unending willingness to model and the joy you bring each time I see you!
