Getting a Picture that is in your mind

I was at a recent event taking pictures of a pageant. In the end, we went outside to take some formal portraits. For the most part, the sun was in clouds, and it was windy. We were finishing up, and the sun came out full and bright. When I saw this young lady, I wanted to focus her on her eye’s. I have been using flash with a large softbox earlier and used it to my advantage. I used it to block the sun into her face. I put her in a position that would focus her on her beautiful eyes. Had her turn her head toward the light and her eyes toward me. Click. I wanted to show her eyes, and I wanted soft light. I love this picture, more important, so did her mom.
