Sometimes a wonderful photograph comes together in an instant. I made this Blue Rachael photo on the roof of my studio just as we were getting ready to leave for the airport. We had a half an hour before we were leaving when Rachael suddenly appeared in a lovely dress and asked if we could go up and have a quick shoot.
Well, of course!
It was one of those late autumn days in Chicago when it actually feels like summer. The sky was beautiful, full of big billowy clouds as Rachael stood in the warm breeze.
And almost as soon as we began, we hurried back downstairs so Rachael could change into more suitable flying attire and we were off. One of those tremendous moments that happens when spontaneous comes calling.
