Bosse and Adriana

[drop_cap]W[/drop_cap]elcome to the first installation of the new section we’d like to call Portrait Sessions. Portraits Sessions will be a series of portraits — duh — of cool people we come across in Mexico. Honestly, we haven’t really thought this through and the concept will likely change as we go.
