36 Frames – A Day in Kate’s Life

This project was made with one roll of Tri-X film and these are each of the images made throughout the day last Wednesday. Very fun to do this, also a challenge.  In the age of being able to make 100s of exposures with digital cameras, this exercise really hones the discipline. Processing and scanning by …

Sparky and Kate Diptych

Yesterday the kids went to Cal Elite in Rancho for Shelby’s birthday party. Sparky was awash in a sea of blue, while atop the mat at the gym and Kate was flying high like she always does when she’s on the trampoline.

Side by Side

This image was made the day after Christmas with Sparky on the bed and Kate on the bed, too.  He’s not even four months old and it seems like he’s almost halfway as big as Kate.  On the first exam with Dr. Ball, our pediatrician, he estimated that Sparky would grow to be about 6 …

Busy Halloween Day

We had a fantastic Halloween weekend. Kate dressed up as Cinderella, wearing a dress hand-made by Granny Moira in S. Africa. But after Nicki bought a witch hat as a last-minute costume for the party hosted by Jason and Jodi, Kate had to get a miniature witch hat, too.  She of course wore it as …
