University of Richmond Reunions

Posted on Jun 26, 2018

It was a pleasure photographing the UR reunions again this year!









PALETTE Program

Posted on May 15, 2018

Promoting Art for Life Enrichment Through Transgenerational Engagement (PALETTE) is a program that connects health professional students (mostly VCU pharmacy students, I believe) and active older adults. Together, they create art projects together. It’s all about fostering friendships that can break down generational stereotypes. It was a pleasure photographing another exhibit and reception for the program.

I photographed the University of Richmond’s Reunions a few weekends ago. It’s always a pleasure seeing old friends back come together.




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.

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.

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.

Explorations

Posted on Oct 20, 2014

I love working with students new to photography who teach me how to see in unique ways. This weekend I went out with Annie Ward, who is 18 and has a new DSLR camera, to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Plants–the most patient subjects! We explored depth of field, pattern, light, and perspective.
