Overview

To win a spot in an elite workshop for studio photographers, Leonora Westcott must put together an extensive portfolio. Her efforts--and inspiration--get a boost when Claudia Galloway, a teacher intern in town for only a few months, volunteers to model.

For Claudia, the sensual poses offer one last chance to flaunt her independence before settling into the scripted life her wealthy fiancé has planned for them in California's exclusive San Simeon community.

Leo has always seen her subjects as objects of shadow and light on the other side of her lens--until now. Every photograph of Claudia brings her feelings into sharper focus, feelings she fears Claudia will never share. As their series of sessions come to a close, Leo decides to risk her heart. But Claudia has declarations of her own.

    MacGregor is dependable

    Photographs of Claudia is about the relationship between two women in two different decades. Leonora Westcott is hoping to be accepted into a program for photographers and she needs to put together a portfolio. She meets Claudia Galloway, a teacher intern, who agrees to become her model. As their sessions progress, the pictures become more intimate and an attraction grows between the women. Claudia is scheduled to marry a very wealthy man, so Leo is afraid to tell her how she feels, but Claudia takes the lead. She decides that she wants to spend her life with Leo and returns home to tell her family. She never comes back. Years later Leo, who is now a successful photographer, agrees to do a friend a favor and take wedding pictures for a young woman who turns out to be Claudia's daughter. The passion that was once there reignites, but Leo has risked herself one time. Twice might be more than she's capable of.

    This book starts off a little slow and turns into another "straight woman discovers she's gay" story. However, it is well developed and tells a poignant story. The women meet in their twenties and don't see each other again for a quarter of a century. It's rather sad to think about what they missed in their lives, but there is no guarantee that their situation would have worked out anyway. As mature women, they might have a greater chance of success.

    MacGregor is an accomplished writer. She knows how to give a story a sad twist without it becoming maudlin. She also knows how to resurrect it into something happier. The characters are appealing, the plot flows at a good pace for most of the book and it's an enjoyable book to read. KG MacGregor is a dependable writer, so spending the time on one of her books really isn't a gamble.
