Commitment

It’s always a pleasure to make videos with the passionate people at Sabot at Stony Point school:

100th Birthday

Posted on Jun 22, 2015

Happy 100th birthday to this fashionista, my grandmother-in-law, Beatrice Sweeney. Bea was born on June 17, 1915–the same year Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra were born. Woodrow Wilson was president and WWI was just beginning.

Bea has lived her whole life in Saratoga Springs, where she served for years as the city historian.

Nieces

Posted on Mar 10, 2015

A few weeks ago I visited my twin nieces in Boston. We were trapped inside during the snow storm, so I got a lot of footage! This is a sequel to the video I made when they were 1-month old:

Real People

Posted on Dec 11, 2014

I know that my friends, the Whorleys, look like models assembled to act like a family for a magazine shoot. But they are real. They really do look and love this beautifully.

Maymont

Posted on Nov 19, 2014

There is a reason why Maymont is everyone’s favorite place in Richmond to take portraits–beautiful gardens, fish-filled ponds, elegant stonework and architecture, and 100 acres of trees.

Community

Posted on Nov 12, 2014

Here is the fourth in a series of four videos I’ve filmed and produced for Sabot at Stony Point, an independent school for students in preschool through eighth grade. (See other Sabot videos here.)

It’s been a real honor and pleasure documenting the classrooms and the community at Sabot. I’ve been reminded how each person comes to the learning in his or her own way, how everyone has distinct talents and strengths, and how much we can accomplish if we work together. From this, I feel especially  inspired to explore and experiment with new ways of filming and editing and to collaborate more with other people.

Thank you, Sabot, for embracing me into your community!

First Fall

Posted on Nov 3, 2014

Fall is a reminder of the joy of color, the joy of falling down, the joy even of getting hurt and getting back up on our feet ready to try again.
