I’ve photographed M and her family since before she was born! She’s off to high school next year and we decided to document her continuation by what else? A wheat field and a shack? We had a great time as always; her mother and I always giggle and have a good time, hopefully M isn’t too embarrassed by us. This gal is a talented musician and we wanted her unique style to shine through. As I photographed her in the different locations I was reminded of something I couldn’t quite put my finger on at the time. It finally came to me days later…Wizard of Oz. Wheat fields, old farmhouse, a location that looked like a tornado had run through and a young girl with big dreams. Let me remind you I live in AZ; no tornados. But we can pretend. M, as you venture into the world, stay sweet, stay humble, be bold and always laugh. I can’t wait to see what your future holds and always remember “there’s no place like home.”
2003-what a cutie!
