This is Erin. I think she just turned seventeen when I shot this...
model: Erin
hair: Elia Manoil
makeup: Pamela Lljubo

Her mom was at the shoot and was the coolest mom around. After seeing the first shots on the computer, she said, "Where are the shots of Erin?" It's amazing how much some people are transformed by a little makeup, hair and lights. Anyway, this was part of a very long day of photography for a hair stylist named Elia. You can see more of the shots on his site linked above. Oh, the title of the post refers to the fact that I have a little girl who will be a teenager some day.

camera/film: Canon 10D, 28-105mm.
lighting: Speedotron head with 11" reflector and 20 grid spot as the main light. One Speedotron head with a Chimera XS light bank for fill.

This is a very visually attractive shot (and I am speaking primarily from an artistic composition point of view). I love the way her hair is too. Excellent movement.

How much of a dirty old man did you feel like during this shot.

You're sick...SICK.
