Christmas 1989, I got my first camera, a pink and purple LeClic. I bugged my parents for one leading up to Christmas and they obliged. It was the toy that completely encompassed me after Christmas. I have all these weird pictures of my toys from 1990 which make me laugh. My mom saw them as a waste of film, but I know what they really were, stories. I would set up these elaborate scenarios that involved my toys and take pictures of them to tell their story. In this first picture, these friends are enjoying a lunch together at a cafe in Paris. The bear had just graduated from college and the doll with the red dress was getting married. They were old friends getting together before life took them elsewhere. Soon after leaving the cafe the doll in the purple overalls was going to die in a tragic accident....I kid you not! (I was a strange child, I'll admit that.) The second picture is the first wedding I ever took pictures of- a prince of England and his pauper bride. For their reception they went ice skating at the end of the aisle. These early years spent clicking away at my toys were the beginning of my passion for storytelling. Photography is my tool which I use to tell stories for all kinds of people and these days I don't have to make up elaborate tales because the stories are already there just waiting to be captured.

The Long Story.
