Philadelphia Lantern Festival

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. 

Dreaming of Summer: Water Play

Spring made an entrance in a big way with 80 degree weather on the weekend and hastily retreated to rain and cold. I am wishing for more sustained warm weather so can I go out and do more summer like activities, like water play with my daughter. 2 years ago I captured her trying to wash my car. This is the best in terms of cheap summer fun.
