Meet Hannah. She’s a high school senior that is vibrant, full of life, loves to read and was born deaf.
Our photo shoot went very well! Of course we got a number of traditional head shots but she was just as interested in changing it up artistically as I was. We had so much fun! I came home with more photos than I could even dream and narrowing them down called for difficult decisions. Hannah’s confidence and ability to truly relax while devouring a good book is inspiring.
I had the privilege to work with Jen Osorio and Matt Luck as one of the videographers for a dance film based on the concept of “falling.” With dancers from Odyssey Dance like Eldon Johnson and So You Think You Can Dance‘s Matt Dorame, it called for a truly exquisite experience. I only used my personal CF card for a few shots so these are all of the screenshots I have for now but I worked on the dances titled: Falling Behind, On Your Feet and Falling Through. Maddi Burg doesn’t touch the ground once in “On Your Feet” and I don’t have any of the footage of my favorite of the night: Matt Luck’s solo “Falling Through” but I’m excited to see the end result and to have been a part of the whole thing.
When did she get so grown up?? Do you ever wonder that? Audrey is a lady! If you wonder what she has decided to do, there is more information about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints here.
I have been working and refining an idea I’ve had for a very long time called the “Timeless” story series. It’s a photo essay of beautiful elderly woman set to a recording of them telling a story to an assigned word. The word given to Vilda was “courage” and she shared a story about a jewelry robbery. It’s been a great start to the series and I am looking for more participants. I find that people are aged to perfection, I love when they have grown more confident as the years roll by and recognize how meaningful it is to live each day with love. Let me know if you know someone who would be interested in having a small photo session and would let me collect a story or two. Thanks.
