Dylan's Down with the Arts Photo Workshop

Earlier in the summer I was fortunate to score a great gig combining two of my favorite interests - photography, and working with children with special needs. Leslie and Stephen Secrist, parents of the incomparable Dylan and founders of the fledgling organization Dylan's Down with the Arts, invited me to lead a photography workshop for children with special needs and their typical peers. DDWA is a super cool organization, unique in that they educate people with special needs and help prepare them for careers in the arts.

The participants and I met on a Saturday morning at Belleview Park in Englewood, and for this first workshop we kept our goals simple. We focused on three types of photography: landscape, macro, and portrait. It was a blast, and I'm looking forward to our next workshop this fall!

Summer Out West

My friend Greg visited me from New York this summer, and we did all the things you're supposed to do in Colorful Colorado. We drove to the top of Mount Evans searching for whistle pigs, we saw the movie Top Gun at Red Rocks, we trekked through Denver on some urban hikes, we traveled to a bluegrass festival in Westcliffe, we almost stepped on a rattlesnake, and we shot guns. Basically, we gotterdun.

Jeni & Jeremy's Engagement

Two of my best friends in the universe are getting hitched this summer, and I insist on taking full responsibility for their relationship.  Jeni is my best friend from seventh grade on, and I met the incomparable Jeremy in college at Boston University. J&J met at the 24-hour speed theatre event that lauched the No One Way Arts Collaborative, and the rest is history.  These shots were taken in Roswell, Georgia at a recent N.O.W. retreat.

Congratulations, Jeni and Jeremy!


Potato in Park

Sometimes, when I go walking through the park, I stumble on lone potatoes sitting in the grass.

Well, actually just this one time.



Elisa is a vibrant actress and a repeat client. She's as gorgeous as ever, and it was fun to reconnect and take a fresh set of headshots for her. May they bring her WORK!
