The first shoot I did was for Meg Wolff who is a writer, life coach, and fierce advocate of a macrobiotic diet. She decided she wanted her portrait to be of her lady friends that were coming to her house for a dinner party. I thought this was a great idea, and really embraced my ideas of community and "family" portrait. Meg also invited me to stay for dinner and made me feel welcome among the guests who were an engaging and fascinating bunch of women. I felt honored to be part of the evening.

The other portrait was for Eleanor Kinney who is on the Maine Farmland Trust board and very active in the community. We were able to schedule the portrait when her parents were visiting from New York, so I was able to get all three generations. Her daughter Anna eagerly decided she would be my tour guide when I arrived, and started off by encouraging me to hold her new baby chicken. We then went to see the sheep, chickens, pigs, bees and incredible gardens and green house. After the tour, we did the shoot in front of the blooming lupins.
