This portrait of Sophie was taken by the Agromeck Photo Editor, Kai F. McNeil. “After listening in on interview between her and Eliza, and meeting her myself I tried to craft a portrait that would match her soft features, creative and captivating spirit. I used a reflector and natural light to eliminate some of the shadow of her face and give her eyes highlight. This definitely has to be one of my favorite portraits of this year.”
