My friend Amy had a Frisbee thrown in her face on Friday, and I though it would be a great opportunity to get some powerful images with her black eye! She’s never modeled for me before, but we had a lot of fun and the images turned out great! (You know how sometimes you can just see the perfect image in your head before you shoot? It feels soooo good to actually capture it!)

I decided to use this image for the recent TWiP challenge. The funny thing is that the theme they used for this challenge (strength) was suggested by me, but I had no idea what image I would actually take to accomplish the theme. When I thought up this shoot just a few days ago, I realized that it would also fit in well with the challenge!
