people | deanna











a little about deanna; she's the silly one, the girl who canoed around the swampy pond in my front yard in high school, catching frogs and letting them hop around the boat. she's the cameron to my ferris, refers to her unruly hair as mufasa, has perfected the "flossing da brain" dance move, and is pretty much an italian speaking goddess. she's also going to be a vet someday, and has this huge capacity for love, towards both humans + animals, that is just astounding.

i love these pictures because they exude deanna; the skipping, hair flipping, the laughter, the joy. we weren't planning a photoshoot, but she had her hair cut earlier that day and i had my camera, so we stopped by some conservation land and frolicked, complaining that we couldn't dance around the fields of wildflowers, because hello, new england is the land of ticks and ain't nobody got time for lyme disease. there was a storm brewing somewhere nearby, and we listened to the thunder roll and felt the wind pick up, clouds hovering ominously. it was just us, and i initially had wished that i could have planned it a little more, made it more of something else, but it wasn't. it was a spur of the moment, beautiful, spontaneous sort of stop and it was perfect, just like that.
