Not Your Average Grandmother


I met Lois Kinley at a book signing a few weeks ago. Her granddaughter Ashley told her about my blog and book and knew that she would be a perfect candidate for Advanced Style. I finally got the  chance to photograph  Lois outside of her  home in East New York, Brooklyn. Lois has an incredible eye for color and texture. She has always loved fashion and now that she is a retired postal worker she has more time and freedom to express her personal style. Look out for some more great shots of Lois Kinley coming soon!
