I have had the wonderful opportunity to photograph and work with Trista for several years now and I have seen her become more and more comfortable in front of the camera. She is beautiful and a real pleasure to work with. The scarves she is wearing in this images were brought home from Afghanistan. But more on that later….
We made the image below after she returned from Iraq and was preparing for her tour to Afghanistan in 2011. On her tour to AF she volunteered to deploy as a member of the Marine Corps Female Engagement Teams. These all female teams, nicknamed “Lioness” augment the combat patrols that go into small cities and villages allowing them to speak with the AF women who are forbidden to speak to men not their father or husband. She was not setting behind a desk pushing paper, but out in the hinterlands on patrol and in harm’s way. She has a real special beauty.
Here is an image we call “Dangerously Beautiful”
