Ashley In The Sky With Diamonds

Marth’s Vineyard
in Summer 2008

My most favorite things to photograph are my children. I started thinking about them when I was a little girl myself. And now I’m far from that little girl and I have four of them. Three of them came to me through adoption so they’re all very different. They’re especially different than me, and that is one of the coolest parts of adoption.

This is Ashley, the bravest person I know. Here she is 10. This summer on Martha’s Vineyard I took her to this bridge and this is what she did. Along with the spirit in this jump she was also yelling to the world to watch her. No one has a better time than Ashley, who played this game all afternoon.

Sassy Shots is Born

Okay, this is the birth of “Sassy Shots.” As a professional photographer my friends and family know that I am obsessed with my photographs. I end up with some fantastic work that doesn’t make it to my websites or to the wall of fame in my studio for all kinds of reasons. The images may be too serious or they may be irreverent but the truth is that they end up being seen by my eyes only and I’d like to share them with those of you whom I love enough to invite to this blog.

So here it goes … and I do love you … Susan
