Canon 40D
Help-Portrait 12.20.2009
Seattle, WA

While most of our subjects for the Help Portrait event on 12.20.09 specifically requested their portraits not be shared, Reuben gave his express permission.

And I'm so glad he did.

One of the few subjects who was unreluctant and natural in front of the camera, it was my honor to take his portrait and to share it with you here. I continue to be humbled by my Help-Portrait experience and hope that next year, every photographer (no matter his or her skill level) will take the opportunity to participate. I post this in honor of all the brave and healing souls I encountered that day.


  1. What a great picture! (and I love the name Reuben!) The help-portrait sounds like a very moving experience.

    All of your pictures are lovely! :)

  2. Hello, Tea and welcome to my little space here!! I'm so glad you came to visit.

  3. What a beautiful picture. I feel like I can feel the texture of his soul!

  4. Wow . . . what a great expression you captured on him. Amazing.
