I had a very hard time picking out my top 5 images since many of my best were taken during the slide era and I have never converted them to digital.

#1: This was a paid gig of a mother and her three children. This image is one of only two taken of the mother:

A fabulous portrait gallery! I remember when you first posted the shot of your grandson—loved it then, love it now! You are the master of light!

Thank you Nick, the image of my grandson was taken 14 years ago. His father (my son) has progressed from a buck private to a Major and my grandson is very close to kicking cancer in the butt after fighting it for the last year. Life goes on!!!

I too love all your shots, and they bring back memories, you may recall, we had a discussion in 2005 right after we started the cafe about portrait posing that helped me out a lot.

You catch something special in each person.
Thank you for your kind comment.
Great series. #5 has always been one of my top portraits. I've tried to emulate that pose with my daughters a few times.
Thanks Mitch, you have a lovely family and have taken many great pictures of them.
Great work Gordon.
Hey Mike, appreciate your comment.
Great set Gordon. #3 is my fav with lovely naturel light , DOF and pose.
That was one of my more difficult images since the area was rugged with steep trails and deep canyons. I had an assistant to handle the gold reflector.
Wonderful portraits - all creative.
I appreciate your comment as each of them required a different set of skills.

Wade, you have always been a good friend and valuable member of the Cafe' and I have learned from you as well. Thanks.
These are all wonderful portraits, Gordon! My favorite and the one I keep going back to look at again and again is that first one -- there is something so compelling about the woman's expression and her gaze directly into the camera.....
She is a lovely lady and the light in that old pioneer house was soft and provided the atmosphere for this image.
