Have You?

This are two of my favorite images from a shoot with 8 month old Adeline on Saturday.
She had the sweetest, calmest little demeanor.
i came very close to eating those little toes.

Guatemala and the Human Knot

a snap from the reading group my husband and i formed in siete pinos, guatemala. we lived in this little block house at 11,000 feet above sea level in the mountains of guatemala as peace corp volunteers. here you see valentine, victor, eustaquio and daniele as directed by juan, playing the always fun ‘human knot’. we’re headed back in november for the first time since january 2004. Victor – in the front is now 14, and Valentine, on the left, is likely married.

New Orleans Funky

This image was taken when i was in New Orleans on a photojournalism project. I was out around 5am and this was the only car on the street. the old/new contrast, the tonal similarities between car and building, and, of course, the awning, attract me to this image.

A shot taken in Georgetown of Sue, a really great model who knows how to help make a great shot. I used a new technique here to get the great vibrant colors, as taught by Zaid Hamad, a stellar photographer. The patriotic colors juxtaposed with the Kennedy Center, and the curve of Sue’s waist balanced with the narrowing horizon line really attracts me to this image.
