Alli was a dream subject for someone who has very little experience in taking portraits. She was my waitress at The Claddagh this evening and was willing to give me enough time to take several shots, even though she was working on closing the restaurant. She sat really still for me so that I could shoot without my flash, and was very good-natured and patient considering all the bumbling and fooling around with camera options that I did.

To take a good portrait of someone can be difficult, so I hope I did a decent job. Alli's natural beauty and friendliness made it very easy to take her picture once I got up the nerve to ask her if I could. She'll be off to see the world very soon, so I'm lucky that I chose to eat at The Claddagh tonight.
