MEDIUM SD Review 2019 + Write Up in “Don’t Take Pictures”

Posted on April 10, 2020

Back in October, 2019 I went to the great Medium Photo Review in San Diego.  The entire experience was fantastic! I met lots of artists who inspired me, reviewers who motivated me into trying new approaches with my work and the city itself was lovely.  The founders and creators were helpful and sincere.  We were lucky to listen to Luis Gonzales Palma speak about his life work!  I hope to go back one day and in the mean time wish all the best to the people I met along the way.

“Fearless” completed

Posted on January 5, 2019

Finished “Fearless” with twin girls Lola and Sofia!  Turned out amazing. This process, platinum on vellum gets easier the more I do it, but I’m definitely wanting to change the aesthetic a bit and diversify my body of work, Twin Elements.

Decided to go with copper b/c it gave it a more antique-vintage look.  The one thing about photographing these finished platinum on vellum prints is that it doesn’t translate the same.  I’m looking forward to having this body of work hang soon!  I have no idea where to go, but a gallery that likes alternative process is my hope.

I also love the Hitchcock-ian vibe this piece has!  Figuring out the girls’ wardrobe was fun, I needed something bouncy and flow-y with a hint of 50’s.  Turned out great.

Chancy Cone Oliver – hair artist @ ADORE
Christa Blackwood – helped me with lighting and everything else!

“Fearless” is my ode to living life fearlessly, something that can be difficult to do sometimes. I chose to be bold and not let fear be a part of my being. I truly love what I do, and feel grateful every day that I’m able to create in my darkroom.  It is my sanctuary and where I get to put my imagination onto paper. How lucky I am!!!

I also wanted to show that when you have a partner through life sometimes it can be easier to conquer your goals because you have that person next to you. I feel lucky to be a twin.

Here’s the work in progress.  Framing soon.

Don’t Take Pictures – Magazine

Posted on December 16, 2018

Thank you to Don’t Take Pictures magazine for including one of my pieces, “Aground, Twin Elements” as their Photo of the Day.

Very humbled considering how many talented photographers have been selected.

Photo of the Day @ Don’t Take Pictures – Dec 16, 2018

One of my new favorite artists I discovered from these Photos of the Day is Merel Schoneveld – wow, her work is incredible.  The moments she captures are so creative and reminds me of Magnum photographer Nikos Economopoulos who is one of my all time favs.  Schoneveld is a talented street photographer. Check her out!! Too many to favor but this one is on top for sure!

My daughter and her many faces

Posted on August 29, 2018

Life has been a little tough lately and photographing Fiona always cheers me up.  This kid is so easy! The fact that she’s use to the camera in her face I think has helped make her a great poser 🙂

Here are some of my favorite images from that day.

Twin Sisters on Trampolines

Posted on July 27, 2018

What a great photoshoot the other day – it’s been a while, but I’m finally blogging about it.  I have a hard time keeping up with this online thing.

Definitely printing the b&w image – platinum on vellum.  Wanting to do another alternative process but time doesn’t really allow me to learn an entire new technique with chemicals and such. I don’t want to lose momentum on this series.

Here’s a pic of my amazing team that helped put all of this together!!!
Rhea McCarter Craft – makeup from ADORE in Austin.  Chancy Cone Oliver – hair.  And I call the fabulous models L & S (for online privacy).  Christa Blackwood helped me with lighting and everything else!  And the models’ mom helped out too, it was great!

Looking forward to printing…
