Philadelphia Lantern Festival by traci A delisser

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot portraits at the philadelphia Lantern Festival last week. It was a magical experience, worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime. Words can't describe the awe and reverence of the event. 

My friend Abena, came along to be my "model" and while shooting at dark without a flash in order to retain the ambient light was a challenge, I am proud of the photos. 

Soho Glam Session by traci A delisser

Back in April on a trip to NYC, I had the wonderful treat of photographing my sister's step daughter. She is a talented singer and she made my job so effortless. It's my aim to do more of these types of sessions, glam with moody.
