PDN Photo Annual 2011

PDN has posted the 2011 winners. I'm not just in good company, I'm in great company. There's a lot of beautiful work to see this year: take a look at the other winners.

I was crazy to do all the photography, the producing, the styling, the designing and the writing myself [ Kim Lowe ] but I was at least smart enough to leave the flash programming to this guy [ Sean Sullivan ] 

I'm in the second row wearing a yellow flower. Fun fun night!

Mrs. Robinson

Mr + Mrs Robinson decided to lay their eggs directly over our back door in a hanging planter. So I think it's only fair—we can't use our back door, I get to take a picture of the chicks. Hey, if I had my baby on your back porch I'd let you take a picture of him.

Two Kids

Snot. When you have two boys, snot bubbles are big entertainment. 

[  TWO KIDS Series ]  I'm the mother of two boys! How the heck did that happen and when are their real parents coming to get them?!

TWO BIRDS: Happy Mother's Day

I received so many moving, emotional emails from single mothers in the Boston area after offering to give a free photoshoot to one single mother. Who knew one small thing to me could be so big to someone else. I take it for granted that I always have someone to take pictures of me with my kids. 
The single mothers I heard from are all wonderful, selfless and inspiring women. I only wish I could offer each of them a free photoshoot. The winning name was pulled this morning. (This is an annual event every Mothers Day. Please try again next year.) 

TWO BIRDS is my little itty bitty way of giving back. I do two charity events a year [ usually mothers day and christmas ] as well as probono work for local kids organizations throughout the year. Click here for more information.

When shooting kids, always have a back-up plan and then have a back-up plan to that back-up plan. Kids are unpredictable and moody. Rarely will they go for your first idea. So start off with your second idea then go back to the first so your second is really your first. Know what I mean?
