It Is Your Destiny...



This is a portrait session that is seriously over a year in the making. There were so many things that got in the way - haircuts, kids growing to big for their costumes, schedules, weather, life.... I was starting to think it might never happen. It would become another one of those great big ideas of mine that shrivels into a what-if. Then fate stepped in, and the clouds cleared for one day. I had a Friday afternoon free that I could drive 4 hours there and back. Besides being some of the coolest kids on this planet, they were unbelievable actors. And could you just die over these costumes? As one artist to another, T, you rock the costume house. This kind of session makes me feel totally called to my station - man, I was just meant to do this kind of thing.

Is that moon in the background for real?! Wow. I feel like I'm on Tatooine! I am such a nerd, and this kind of stuff just makes me happy. To think, there is a whole family of nerds out there just like me! lol. P.S. Love the Leia costume from Empire Strikes Back - that is one you RARELY see. Very cute!

I read somewhere you're going to stalk someone for their work. But I am intrigued by yours, m'dear! I think the Star Wars is amazing and wow the color, and wow,the intensity in their little faces!

Then the little August Gift Baby. How precious! Great great works!

FYI, the moon is not real. Part of great photography is building your photo how you want it. Not just what was given you on that particular day. I have seen a photo build from many MANY photos before. It is however GREAT that you think the moon may be real. It means the illusion has crept into reality.
