My Winter Studio

There’s a little unfinished house in Baja that I’ve walked past and admired for years. It’s a beautiful structure, it has no roof, no windows, no doors and blissfully bare walls. To me it’s an ideal location to make portraits and so I did just that. This little bungalow was my winter studio. #6060#5103 copy#5078#6108#5102 square copy#3592 floor#4370 copy 2Baja studioBaja studio #5988so simple yet so perfect.

Jamaica Now & Then

Jamaica is back in my life and what’s been showing up in front of my camera lens has been a delightful surprise. The portfolio that I thought was complete long ago has taken on new life. What a transformative and welcome shift in thinking this has been. It’s really just the beginning. This project is totally alive for me again.

Some of the reconnections took a year to arrange and others happened effortlessly. One day I was unexpectedly in Commador and Lateef (the boy in the school uniform who is now a grown man) was out in the road as if waiting for me. Another day I heard my name being called and it was Cliffy, he was on the roof of a building in Hope Bay. Eighteen years had passed since either of these guys had been in front of my camera and here they were directly in my path. Many powerful reunions aligned for me on this trip and I can’t help but recognize how precious it all is. Jamaica has always been a magical and emotional place for me but never more so than on this visit.

A Family Tradition

My business as a family photographer exists because people still hold a value for the time-honored tradition of family portraiture. People who realize it’s about more than just the images. It’s an event. Time has to be set aside, schedules arranged and often rearranged. Wardrobe has to be planned and prepared. Haircuts and tans topped off. It’s not always easy but it’s always worthwhile. It’s time spent together as a family, making memories, giggling, sometimes crying but most importantly being together.

Fortunately, my clients Chip & Ben honor this tradition.

What a difference a year makes.
