Joy Newell's Breath of Life


Quite a while back I saved the above image to my "favorite photos" folder on my computer. Then I promptly forgot where I found it. I think I even used it in one of my photo collages but didn't know who to credit. So imagine my surprise when I discovered Joy Newell's Breath of Life photography and there it was! I was so happy to finally know who had taken this lovely photo. I'm always a sucker for photos of pretty girls in pretty dresses in sunlit fields.

Then, of course, it shouldn't have been much of a surprise to discover a wealth of photographs just as lovely; softly lit girls in pretty dresses lying in fields or surrounded by flowers. As if the photos themselves weren't enough, they're made all the more impressive considering the talent that shot them is a seventeen year old young woman.
