Pretty in Pink

August 21, 2009

Wow. Seems like yesterday my lovely, little niece was born. Today, Tanell is a beautiful young woman. A princess, but no ordinary princess. She is a multidimensional sixteen-year-old who recently played Beneatha Younger in A Raisin in the Sun, is a member of the National Honor Society, and was even named Police Commissioner for the Day. She doesn’t know what university she wants to attend yet, but one day soon she plans to transform the advertising world. Those ‘mad men’ of Madison Avenue better watch out for this one!

Here are photos from Tanell’s Sweet 16 photoshoot. Enjoy –

Izzy, She Lovely

January 13, 2009

“Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she wonderful
Isn’t she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we’d be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn’t she lovely made from love .”
                                                   – lyrics by Stevie Wonder

A few years ago I was honored to shoot Aruna & Bryan’s spectacular wedding and now their daughter, lovely little Izzy, has celebrated her first birthday!
