Vintage wedding

Monday, April 23, 2007

Haley & Jonathan had a beautiful wedding at Mayfield Park.
Since the bride wore a vintage gown and veil from the 60's from Unbridaled. I tried out some new Photoshop actions and gave the pics a vintage Kodachrome color look!

Pulitzer Prize

Congratulations to Oded Balilty for winning the Pulitzer prize this year. I am always in awe of how these photojournalists risk their lives everyday to show us the world.
Check out the other amazing finalists on the AP site.

Speaking of Mothers

Monday, April 16, 2007

Today is my Moms 69th birthday! She was born in New Orleans April 16, 1938 to Gloria and Gerald Shipley.
Here are some of my favorite baby pictures of her.
Happy Birthday Mom!!!


I usually love the articles in the N.Y.Times but found this one insulting to female photographers. Seems some photographers refer to female portrait photographers who are Moms as "MWACs" (Moms with a camera)and think they are under cutting professional portrait photographers livelyhood by charging less. This is a another backlash against women.

There have always been GREAT women photographers who happen to be Mothers (Julia Margaret Cameron was probably the first!) but we shouldn't be stigmatized by our gender or roles as Moms.

You'd never think of someone calling a male photographer a Dad with a camera!

I think they're just jealous of all the incredible new and innovative work out there and can't stand all the new competition that digital photography has opened up!

Found photos

Friday, April 13, 2007

I think it's sad that once cherished photos become lost in thrift stores, so I like to give them a new home. The old portrait photographers really knew how to capture these moments with such incredible light! Maybe some day I'll get lucky and find a Disfarmer!!
