Island Living

Gentle Reader – it’s been too long since you’ve heard from me! My only excuse is that we have spent the last few months selling our Connecticut home, and buying and moving into our new home on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. We are pretty well settled and now I’m earnestly back shooting again!

Please click on each of these images to see them in a larger and clearer size.

In our big entrance hall/dining room, we have four floor-to-ceiling windows and I wanted to make three photographs to go on the walls in between the windows. These are the images I created. I wish I could say I found all these shells on the beach but I bought them at a local shell store – most are not native to South Carolina. 

I photographed these with two Nikon Speedlights with umbrellas, for fairly flat lighting. The prints are 16 inches square and will be about 24 or 25 inches with the frames. 

As always, your comments and questions are welcome.

Motherly Love

Faithful readers will recognize these two lovely ladies. Elora, now soon to be 18 months old, was featured in my last blog post, Sixteen Months. And I’ve shot with her mom, Amelia, many times. Amelia is an accomplished actor and model and is the star of this video.

By the way, click on any image in this post to see it LARGER and clearer.

These two were such fun to photograph. The enthusiastic love and joy they share with each other is infectious and comes through in these images loud and clear.

A mother’s love for her child is like
nothing else in the world. It knows no
law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes
down remorselessly all that stands in its path.

~ Agatha Christie

Sixteen Months

Recently I had the opportunity to shoot with this lovely young lady, Elora, who is 16 months old.  Please click on any image in this post to make it LARGER.

Elora was a joy to photograph. She is full of life and joy.  Over two hours of shooting, the meltdowns were, amazingly, few and far between.  Elora came with her mom – keep your eyes out for another blog post with images of the two of them together. But I wanted to give Elora her own place to shine by herself – which she certainly did!

When I shoot with young kids, I always wonder what the world will be like for them when they grow up.  What will college be like for Elora? How will it be when she has her own 16 month old child?
