Portraits: Mónica

Desde chica Mónica ha bailado el ballet folklórico del Estado Mexicano de Jalisco. Su madre cosió por mano su vestido bonito. Fuimos al estudio un día frío en invierno y sacamos fotos, y aprendí que tengo mucho que aprender con respeto a tela que está moviendo!

Since Mónica was little she has danced ballet folklórico from the Mexican state of Jalisco. Her mother even made her beautiful dress by hand! We went to the studio on a cold wintery day and took some shots, and I learned I have a lot to learn about taking photos with moving fabric!

Portraits: Lamia

It was really, really cold and yet Lamia insisted on wearing flats in the snow to show off her traditional outfit.  Dedication.  And gorgeousness on so many levels.  I'm so luck to photograph these amazing Grinnellians... 

Radiant.

Such beautiful stitching.

Gorgeous.

Portraits: Cassie

Cassie is fabulous. During the shoot she braved the cold out on the loggia, re-enacted a Folger's commercial, and made friends with little monsters in the basement.  All this while running track, being a full-time student, and generally being a badass.

// And glitter.  Glitter = reflection of Cassie's perpetual happiness and her ice-melting smiles.

Portraits: Tela

Tela (another fellow photographer) and I explored a building on campus and found a hidden corridor with beautiful light.  Sort of like in Harry Potter, only without the three-headed dragon...

Always impressive when photographers do well on the other side of the camera.  Wowsa.

And glitter.

Ready for adventure!  It was a balmy -15 windchill...perfect day for a hike around campus.

Braving the Iowa tundra, channelling Bear Grylls. 

Miles away from civilization (well, a few yards at least), the adventurer ponders his next move.
