I happened to photograph Lauryn five years ago on her 45th birthday - one of the images from that session has always been a favorite of mine. A couple of days ago I had the joy of photographing Lauryn again, and honestly, she's gotten better with age.
Before you completely take down that Christmas tree have some fun with it first! Using a long exposure and some camera movement you can create these vibrant abstract patterns. Kids love doing this! There's no end to the designs you can create! This works with single colored lights too, but of course it's not as
Am starting to get friendly with all of the light in the new studio and it's beginning to feel like home. Andrew came in for a couple of hours yesterday and we moved the light around overpowering all the daylight and concentrating on low key approaches.
After only shooting lovely girls and women the first weeks in the studio, I enjoyed a little testosterone in the light. I have photographed Paul a few times in the past few years and this time I realized it was no more high school/college for this guy. It was time to light him like a
To celebrate the opening of my newly relocated photography and media studio I am giving away some pretty choice portrait packages. Winners will be randomly drawn on December 7, 2013! Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my wonderful photographic journey! #1 - Children’s Studio Session for up to 3 children under
Both of these images, though wildly different in feel and emotion, express Helen perfectly, though she does tend to lean slightly more toward the first image. That's the beauty of photography - recording the truth of an instant.
Sometimes it can be difficult for a tween to relax in front of the camera. The span of ten-to-twelve years old can be an almost androgynously awkward time for girls. It's the time that bridges cute into beautiful. And it's a tricky spell to navigate. Gretchen is perfectly comfortable in her own skin - incredibly
I've been chomping at the bit to actually work in the new space instead of just painting, hanging and arranging. Yesterday Tikko, my assisting intern, and I found an hour in the new studio to try some test approaches with the strobes, the high ceilings, the white walls. The first shot was a single gridded
I know with an iPhone 5 you can create killer panoramic shots as easily as shooting video. I however am still hanging onto my iPone 4s. Why? Because it fits into a really great wallet that I love and am not ready to get rid of. In the meantime here's a lame series of regular
It was a lot of ups and downs - stairs, ladders and step stools to get the new space spackled, sanded, and painted in just a few days. I owe an extra dose of gratitude to my husband for volunteering and my nephew who did a lot of the tricky stuff. Prepping the space for
At almost a speed of light pace, the new studio space is coming together. I can't believe I've been professionally home-less for only six months. It feels longer. Excruciatingly so! The new furniture and accessories have begun to arrive and I am delighted that my neutral but jewel-tone palette is luscious and just a touch
Have had the fun of playing interior designer these past few days and have finally zeroed in on the perfect color palette for the new studio. Now the real fun begins - selective acquisitions. (Sometimes referred to as shopping.) Oh and look, it's a lot like the colors of my brand and web site. Go
I've begun to release elements of my new series entitled Poem Stones. This is a mixed media series if you will as it pairs images with segments of a poetic memoir. I will be sharing more about the project's background in future posts. Visit Poem Stones. Feel free to comment.
Truth is, about three hours before Manchester Vermont's StreetFest started, while I was going over my final PhotoSLAM checklist, I found myself asking - whose idea was this? Who offers to set up a temporary photo studio and shoot portraits for a little as five dollars. The phrase, this is insane, kept twirling through my
