Most children's early drawings are of people and so many of the photographs we take as adults are of people's faces - we are naturally curious about faces and portraiture.  The making of a portrait, even a drawing done in a short time, is an intimate and intense process.  And the emergence, as one hopes, of a sense of the sitter's presence on the paper or canvas is the result of a mysterious alchemy.  I enjoy the collaborative element, it is a dialogue between sitter, painter and viewer.
