2nd Annual Haunted Holly Springs Tour

On October 21st, Phillip Knecht and Andrea Edgeworth of Lost River Mercantile were thrilled to introduce over 500 tourists to several of Holly Springs' 'ghosts' in the 2nd Annual "Haunted Holly" Springs tour. The tour combined antebellum architecture with spooky stories of the past, all told by (very much alive) local residents of Holly Springs.

Here's a handful of photos from the tour, plus a screen shot of my photos in the South Reporter.

Instant Mini Prints in Progress

I'm steadily finding new, and creative ways of printing my favorite photos for display. So far, I absolutely love the look of mini instant film! It doesn't work for all shots, but for images with strong contrast, the values and rich colors really pop!

I can't wait to share a handful of these fun prints with some of my favorite clients. I've already started planning the packaging (a couple of options shown below), and what they could look like as a larger set. Next up: maybe framing?

The below photos are from Creative Aging's latest Creative Arts Series program, featuring the New Ballet Ensemble & School.

New Ballet School & Creative Aging

Some of my new favorite photos came from Creative Aging's latest Senior Arts Series performance at Theatre Memphis! In September, seniors were treated to music and dance by the New Ballet Ensemble & School, whose performance encorporated a variety of different music and dramatic dance styles. I really loved the photos from this show; it was so hard to choose favorites for the blog!

"Holly Springs Stories" in Ashland

Last month, I was invited by artist Joyceann Gardner to share my Holly Springs Video Stories with the Snow Lake Shores community in Ashland, MS.

This is the second public showing of my video series on Holly Springs, and the feedback has been absolutely wonderful! I’m definitely going to consider doing more public presentations like this as things develop.

Photos of my short preliminary talk by my assistant, Alexandra Ashmead, of the Holly Springs Depot, who was kind enough to take some shots for the blog.
