Portrait of Sundri


Sundri was nine years old and in the fourth grade. Her favorite subject in school with math because, “it’s fun to do problems.” She wanted to be a doctor, so her second favorite subject was science, of course.

Sundri played simple songs on the piano. She was working on her Christmas recital pieces. She also participated in hip-hop dance and was also preparing for a Christmas recital in that area of her life also.

During hip-hop performances, she always danced in a group, and hoped that one day she would be given the opportunity to solo or do a duet.

At the time of this interview, Sundri was reading The Princess and the Page.

This picture has been on my bucket list awhile. About two years ago, I discovered this park and took a picture of this dome climbing structure, but no none was on it. So since then, I’ve been wanting to snap one with a child on top.

Sundri’s Dad was willing for me to make her portrait on the dome, but she had never climbed that high. Thank you Sundri for being brave and climbing up there for me for the first time, so I could get this shot.
