new portrait, new life

It took some nerve to make this photo. As long as we were dating, as long as we were married, making photos of Rachel was as natural as the sun rising. But then we got a divorce.

Since then, we’ve begun talking again and occasionally getting a drink or meal together. It made us both nervous when I asked to make her portrait, but it seemed important – life goes on, after all. We might not be “together”, but she will always be a significant part of my life story.
