Serena Then and Now…

Over the years, I’ve photographed portraits of athletes on their way up from Alex Rodriguez, Andy Roddick to Maria Sharopova. Some make it…and some don’t. None have been as rewarding to watch on their march to greatness as the Williams Sisters. While photographing Serena Williams for this week’s issue of Time Magazine, I was reminded of the very first time I photographed the sisters back in 1994 when Serena was a mere 12-year-old phenom.
