Seasons of the Soul

Susan Swartz

One glance at the link above and you will see that Susan Swartz is a very special person.  Susan is one of the most talented artists in the country, with her abstract landscape paintings gaining praise from some of the most admired critiques in the business.  Her work is in museums across the country and abroad.  Susan’s new work is simple, pure, and makes powerful statements of a spiritual nature.

This portrait is one of my favorites from our session.  It is a one light high key technique that I have perfected, with an accent light added to camera left giving me the edge I needed.  This technique is usually reserved for fashion or editorial images but towards the end of our session I knew it was the perfect one to use.   I know this was a move from the Holy Spirit.  Susan and I have always had a spiritual connection and this portrait speaks volumes of that connection.  Susan signs every painting with GTG just under her name..Glory to God.

I was the chosen photographer for Susan’s beautiful daughter’s Karen and Kristin’s wedding nuptials, the first in Princeton, N.J. and the second on the mountain top in Upper Deer Valley, Park City Utah. We have crossed paths with our trips to Utah, so we were thrilled to get the call when Susan had her solo exhibition, Seasons of the Soul,  at the Metropolitan Museum of the Women in the Arts,  Washington D.C.

Sandi Hoffman Book Signing

Sandi Hoffman is one of the biggest event planners in the Washington, D.C. area and I had the pleasure of shooting the cover of her new book My Love of Affairs.  Sandi and I met through our long list of mutual clients and we’ve worked together through dozens of events.  I was honored when she selected my photograph as the cover of her book.

Besides shooting the cover image, we have some other beautiful images in My Love of Affairs as you can see below. I look forward to working with Sandi and her creative genius for many more events to come! Compare 296-IMG_2736 2408-RR4V0629
