I've always told the editors at Kentucky Living Magazine that if a photographer ever tells you that they don't care about getting a cover shot to fire them! Because they're lying to you! It may seem arrogant but I never ran into a photographer who didn't enjoy being published. It's just part of it. It completes the editorial process and brings it all full circle. This cover shot of Evelyn Ballard helping to decorate her family Christmas tree with homemade ornaments that her mother Amanda made from her father's shirts, who had recently passed away, was my 70th cover shot for the magazine. My first one was back in July 1992.
