My dear friend Molly as her Renaissance Festival character Olive. This was one of the first portraits I ever took, it was candid, and I've always loved it. For years it had a blue wash due to being shot underneath a blue plastic tarp, it took me years to figure out how to get rid of it. Glad I figured it out.

One of my castmates Stephanie looking tired but lovely at cast call, I've always thought this image evocative of refugees arriving at Ellis Island.

This is Penny as Bud the Flower Fairy. I love the squinchy expression as she looks into the sunlight because it reminds me of a card from the game Elixir.
