The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
― Audrey Hepburn


A wonderful quote by Audrey Hepburn. Hepburn was a British actress, model, dancer and humanitarian - universally recognized as a film and fashion icon.


Seanine is a school girl at Our Lady’s Grammar School, Newry. I photographed her just before her recent school formal.

In just half an hour we had made 17 different images and I couldn't help but compare Seanine to Hepburn and the glamorous Hollywood stars of the silver screen!


I have no doubt that the beauty of this woman will grow with passing years.


How will Seanine's future children and grandchildren react to this portrait of her?
