Ooooh, Baby!

This little stinker absolutely refused to sleep in my studio.  After the second attempt at sweetly posed sleepy photos didn't work out, i decided to switch lights and just roll with the wakefulness.  What a cute little pumpkin!

Sarah's Senior Portraits

It's senior portrait time for the Class of 2012! I flew all the way to Virginia to do Sarah's senior portraits and it was a BLAST! We were in the middle of a heat wave topped with humidity, but we all survived. ;) We decided to go with a bit of a "grunge" theme in addition to the more traditional look; it worked out well!

Congrats and best wishes in your senior year, Sarah!

Oh, Virginia, Part Deux

You may not know this, but i'm a beauty school dropout.  After 850 hours in cosmetology school in Chicago, i had a baby (Allie), and never went back.  I still cut hair sometimes just for fun.  I think it's in my blood; i gave my very first haircut to my best friend, Barbra, in kindergarten. She moved away a few years later (totally unrelated to the haircut, i'm sure) and i didn't see her for over 30 years.  I found her on Facebook (there's not much more i love than Facebook) and now here she is, all grown up....

Oh, Virginia....

...i miss your green fields and big trees already.  Can i come back soon?

This is my long-time friend, Cathy.  We were stationed together in Japan (we were both Russian linguists in the USAF) long ago.  She somehow survived being my supervisor (hehe) and we were good friends as well.  She's always been one of my favorite people; smart, funny, kind, fun to be around.  It was so fantastic seeing her again.  We shot in and around Charlottesville and had a blast!  She even hung out on spider infested hay...fearless!  :)

Can't wait to see you again, Cathy!
