There’s no end to the things I love about my daughter, but ranking right up there near the top is her attitutude about her hair – she views it as a canvas upon which art should be created, and if it doesn’t work, Oh well, it will grow out again.

Yesterday she decided to get a radical cut – I envisioned a mohawk or other such intense cut, but when I got home last night, I saw the most beautiful cut ever. The stylist, Shannon Dalesio, who owns Shearindipity in Newmarket, turned out to be a mind reader in the project. (more…)

Hanging out the other night with my two favorite girls, my daughter and her best friend, who is almost my second daughter. I have photographed these two young ladies so often, never get tired of shooting them either. In Maine, an old farmhouse, needing a coat of paint, but what a wonderful environment for some photos. Light going fast, cloudy overcast end of the day light. First processed them in color until I realized these photos were made for black and white. (more…)

I recently got an iTouch – too many calls when I was in a situation where I’d say ” Don’t have my calendar with me, can I call you back in a few hours” – not a great way to do business.

It’s tough being 12, getting dragged around with your parents as they have adult fun – which often consists of digging through stuff, junk, and other assorted treasures in thrift stores and people’s barns.

The nice thing about bored is that it lends itself to a variety of photos that are different than the average picture of your kid smiling for the camera. The only tough parts are not being able to light the photos…and not getting caught! (more…)

Birthday Girl

December 9, 2008

On those days when I get out of bed a little stiff or sore I wonder what it is that keeps me young. I don’t have to think about that very long – my daughter is the fountain of youth. Its hard to believe, but she turned 12 tonight. I set up a couple of small strobes and did a portrait at the moment of birth – 9:11PM. If Eliza looks a bit familiar, that’s also her on the top of the blog – spinning in the breeze along a ridge in Tuttle Swamp. (more…)
