My Photo friend is moving away…

Yes, in a few weeks, my dear friend Deborah Vaia
and her husband are moving home to California.
I was trying to find all of my images of her that
I promised months ago to burn a dvd and came across
one of my favorite shoots we did together. So, in
my mourning mood, I decided to edit this image. Deborah
was a sport and modeled my antique blouse, and a long
brown velvet tablecloth made into a skirt with her
Dior shoes and tulle on top of a vintage hat!
We had so much fun and I ended up with a boat load
of great images. I don’t know anyone with the same passion
for Fashion photography as Deborah, and we had so many
shoots together over the past few years shooting aspiring
models to our hearts content. We met in Charlie Freeman’s
fashion photo class the last semester he was alive.
So much was learned that semester, probably the most influential
class i have taken thus far. Deborah and I began collaborating
on shoots from then on and I will surely miss her being here
in Dallas! The next two weeks will be hard knowing she is soon
to move, but hopefully we can get into just as much trouble
in California once she gets settled. Love you Deborah!

The Farm – where time stood still

I guess it was around the year 2000. Paul and Kelly
walked into my real estate office in Frisco where I
worked. They had moved from California to be near family
and wanted to now buy a house. They had been living for
5 months on a farm of a family friend. The farm is on a
piece of land that had been in the same family for 150
years which I believe is fairly rare around here.
The farm was also in the family of a friend of mine from
high school and after we chatted, we found out that Paul
and I were also in the same high school maybe just a
year apart! What a coincindence- after just walking into
just one of many Real estate companies in Frisco! So they
lived here since then, I also sold another home for them a
few years ago that Paul grew up in and at that point, I was
heavily into my photography. Kelly and I talked often of me
coming out to the farm for a photo shoot, bring a model, etc
Whenever we planned it, the rains came and made it just too
muddy to try. So now that they again are moving only this time
back to California to be near their daughter who moved back after
high school and now has babies… well you get the story.
So right down to the wire, I headed out on Sunday just as the
trailer came to pick up the horses. I got to shoot a little of
them and then went into the house where time stood still…
