Happy birthday, girl with the pearl earring!

The girl with the pearl earring is my longtime and very dear friend, Karen. This past Friday was her 29th birthday (again). The years have been very kind to her—she is just as lovely today as she was when I photographed her so many years ago. And now she has two very photogenic daughters for me to capture!

I have read years ago about using vaseline on your filter, but they never tell you how to remove the vaseline.
