portraits: child

she’s growing up – has lost eight teeth and has new ones … i always think losing baby teeth make a child grown up, somehow.

art: alaska theatre of youth

this past few weeks i’ve been photographing the children at ATY – behind the scenes and during their performances. all images from these events can be found in this folder. the first shoot i did for them was midsummer’s night dream – the musical – for publicity in the local newspapers and i pretty much adore them.

commercial: totem pole carvers, alaska native heritage center

i had the most excellent time shooting the totem pole carvers at alaska native heritage center last week. it was an amazing process to watch and i spent a lot of time (too much time?) talking with the extremely talented & kind master carver israel shotridge. all of the master carvers who were carving were amazing. i feel so special being able to be part of documenting this process. images here are of israel shotridge and bothers: joe and tj young. israel is carving eyak and tlingit house posts; joe and tj young are carving the haida house post.

jon and the girls brought all the boston terrier puppies over – their first car ride and their first new place to explore. they were super hyper and hard to photograph – they ran all over the studio and wouldn’t chill out. there are a few of the “ok” photos we ended up with.
