A few weekends ago, I returned to Princeton for its homecoming game. While we did demolish Yale, the game was not the highlight of the weekend. Seeing all of my friends again, gathered in the orange bubble I still call home, was the highlight. I look forward to seeing them all again soon!
So honored to have been featured on The Photographers Directory this morning!
My photography is about life. Trained primarily as a photojournalist, I want to share honest moments I experience and view with a wider audience. My location near Washington, D.C. allows me to photograph a variety of subjects, including life in the American capital, as well as the Virginia countryside with activities like foxhunting. I also enjoy photodocumentary work.
I love aquariums. One of my parents’ favorite Kaki stories, in fact, is from the first time I visited an aquarium. I was a well-mannered, quiet kid, but when I visited the Baltimore Aquarium, I ran from tank to tank screaming, “Ish! Ish!” That enthusiasm, though a bit more controlled, continues to this day. (In fact, today I have a beta named “Ish.”)
So, when we visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium I couldn’t help but photograph their jellyfish exhibit. They are such beautiful creatures!
I rarely put up photographs of myself, but this time I couldn’t resist. My little sister Christina is becoming quite the photographer, and I need to brag about her more often. She and I like to have portrait sessions where we change who is behind the camera. She’s really talented - she took the photo on the left of me in the water! I’ll be sure to post more photos that she has taken of me - stay posted.
In the meantime, enjoy these two photographs from California! Christina took the one on the left, and I the one on the right.
After the Canine Companions for Independence graduation, my family had dinner with Ted Lemon. Ted and my mother went to school together from kindergarten to twelfth grade, and now Ted owns Littorai Wines. Before dinner, we were able to visit the Littorai vineyard in Sebastopol, CA. The land was beautiful, and the wine fantastic!
