Jen, Eli, big brother Zack and new baby Leo met me for an afternoon of portraits in the little park near their apartment. I have to admit, babies are SO MUCH easier to photograph! Convincing Zack to join us for photos was quite the comedy, and we spent much of our time negotiating with him, trying to cajole him (dare I say trick him?) into the photos! A fun time was had by all.

I’m taking a class right now at ICP, titled The Narrative Portrait. Amy Arbus is the instructor, and she’s guiding 12 or so of us through personal photographic journeys, giving hard critiques and opening our minds to better visual storytelling. The ongoing assignment is to photograph one subject over a ten week period, and I have chosen my Grandmother. She will be turning 95 in March and lives about an hour and a half away, in East Northport on Long Island. She graciously accepted my proposal to be my model & subject, and unfortunately I am missing this week’s photo session due to an ill-timed blizzard. Such is life, I suppose; I can control a lot of things, but the weather is not one of them! Here are a few pictures from my previous session with my Grandmother.
Last weekend my husband and I traveled back to Ohio for a family wedding. On Friday, while the men went off fishing on Lake Erie, I zipped over to Sylvania to photograph little Reagan and her lovely parents. We indulged in a few things that two year olds are usually not allowed to do: jumping on the couch, a playful pillow fight in her parents’ bed, spinning around and around on swiveling leather chairs, and eating cookies in bed. I think, if you asked Reagan, it was an utterly successful afternoon!
