Springtime in New Orleans is the perfect time to shoot film. Spring 2011

The photograph of the boy staring into the camera is perhaps one of my favorite pictures. I had taken down the father's information after I finished shooting and delivered the prints to him only to find out that the child's mother had passed a few weeks earlier. When given that information, it gave a whole new meaning to the child's facial expression.
