Lilli reminds me of Ramona Flowers character from the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in this street portrait taken in Antigua Guatemala. That’s why I thought the moment I saw her and I approached and ask permission to take her portrait, she was surprised, but said, “no problem, shoot away.” The reason I ask for permission was because I really want to be very close, I mean I was only a couple of inches away from her because I had the 28mm grand angular lens on my camera. Considering this portrait was very spontaneous and with not preparation whatsoever, it came out quite pleasing.
If you would like to have a portrait photo session for you or your family with me next time you visit Guatemala, don’t hesitate to contact me ahead of time to schedule it.
