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?

A Hand to The Netherlands

Professional photographers have their pictures stolen at an alarming rate. And it’s virtually impossible to protect any photographs that are posted online.  So I’m surprised when someone asks permission to use one of my images. But it does happen – this is the third time a company from Europe has asked for a photograph of mine.

Some years ago I took photos for a hand model. A design firm in The Netherlands, Clever Franke, found my image online and asked if they could use it in their own marketing. We agreed on a price for a license fee to use the image and the firm paid me through PayPal.

A big “hand” of thanks to Clever Franke for their honesty! My original image appears below.

Giving Thanks for BFFs

neca-449-1100px-edit

Recently, I had the pleasure of taking headshots at a nearby high school. I photographed a lot of people over 3 days – 45 students as well as 12 teachers and staff.  Please click on the image to see it LARGER and clearer – on your phone, tablet or computer.

These two girls came in and asked if I would shoot them together. They were laughing and enjoying themselves – clearly BFFs. (If you’re as old as me – you may need a translation – could be Best Friends Forever or Best Female Friends.)

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for many things.  One is the opportunity to photograph young people that are full of life and promise. Another is  – in a world that is supposedly becoming more fragmented and polarized – to see these two beautiful young women enjoying their deep friendship. They are good role models for us all.
