Susan Seubert shoots for the New York Times

Sometimes, assignments come across the desk which end up being more of a gift than a job. This story for the New York Times came through at last minute: the evening before the shoot was to take place.  Technically, I was already booked, so although I ended up a wee bit late for the other gig, I felt I had to meet this extraordinary youngster.

My favorite quote from Kyra’s story is the following: “Sometimes your dreams get crushed but you just keep going.”

It is my understanding that not only is she an actress, but also proficient gymnast and ballerina.

Let this young girl be an example to us all.

Here's a screen shot from the New York Times story.  Click on it to read.

Here are a few other images from the take:

The photos were taken with the 5D Mark II and a 24-105mm f/4 IS USM lens and processed in Adobe’s Lightroom.
