For my sister’s 30th birthday, I decided to plan a trip to Sedona. We invited some friends and rented a house surrounded by the amazing red rocks of the area. We had a wonderful time both playing pool at the house and exploring the city and outdoors. It is one on my favorite places in all of Arizona and truly a beautiful setting any time of year.
With the recent snow on the ground, I decided to go hiking at Catalina State Park in Tucson, AZ. The park has beautiful scenery and trails into the mountains. The streams were running and all the saguaros were covered in snow. I took my parent’s dog Caesar for company and I think he had as good a time as I did.
After leaving Baltimore, my cousin Jessica and I headed for Savannah, GA. It was wonderful to get out of the cold weather and explore the beautiful city. Savannah was amazing and with all the parks, fountains, and plazas, our walk around the city kept turning into a photo shoot. Thank goodness my cousin is such a good sport when it comes to my photography,
As I have been staying in Yuma, AZ for the holidays, I decided to take my cousins Cassie and Jessica and do an impromptu photo shoot. We live way out in the country surrounded by lettuce fields so I had them trekking through the mud and lettuce, but I got some amazing photographs. My beautiful cousins were great models and the whole shoot was a lot of fun. These photos are lightly edited, but I love the natural, bright look.
Last week, my fellow photographer friends and I got together with our graphic designer friends to decorate some Christmas cookies. Decorating the cookies was a lot of fun, even though Jay only made inappropriate ones. Somehow, one cookie ended up having a whole orange on top. It was very relaxing and a great time spent with the friends I have made here. Later that day, we all went to Liz’s home for dinner before heading out to see the Boston Pops Christmas show at Symphony Hall. The venue was beautiful and the show was amazing. The orchestra played Christmas classics with a few new twists.
Last weekend was a busy shooting weekend. After photographing Tristan at the Frog Pond and Jane in the snow, I was asked by two fellow classmates and friends to photograph an engagement shoot they were doing. They needed stills and video for a promotional video they are making for their upcoming studio and business. We all headed to a park in Concord, MA and the photographers got to work.
As a graduate with a degree in Classics, I have always loved Greek and Roman myths. I have taken on the personal project of recreating these myths in photo form. I am currently in the final stages of the myth of Apollo and Daphne, but this last weekend, I wanted to get started on a new myth and I chose to portray the myth of Pandora. As that is still in the early stages, I thought I would share with you the photos that I took later, just for fun.
