This is the first frame I shot from this impromptu and short shoot I had with Cassandra on Sunday.  She had an MUA and photographer cancel on her last minute and was still in shooting mode.  We met up and quickly threw together a simple concept and literally drove 2 blocks from her place and shot this image in a tree covered bend of a lightly traveled road.
