Canal Winchester, Ohio, Photography: Sarah

Filed under all of my friends are prettier than i am, just pictures, no i really do love ohio, photography

While I was in Ohio for Christmas, I got to take some portraits of my lovely friend Sarah in the old-timey town of Canal Winchester. I met Sarah when a guy I grew up with started working with her at the science museum where I also used to work–though it was well after I had left and moved to NYC–and told her she should look me up as she passed through NYC on her way to live in India for six months(!). It didn’t work out that time (I blame her entirely), and then when she returned to the U.S. and decided to stay in NYC for a time, I put off our meeting for months and months for no reason other than that I was like, “Meh, whatevs, I have enough friends.” But then we finally DID meet, and it was like I had known her my whole life and wanted to continue to know her for the rest of it. So of course she moved back to Ohio, like, two months later.

      This was the day after your shoot (which I still haven’t posted about yet!). I liked it so much I had to go back for more.

    Pretty pretty sepia tones! And a pretty pretty girl!

    Beautiful photos!

    Whenever I see your lovely and talented photos I wonder why you are not a professional photographer as a full time vocation.

      Ohhhhh, Deb, you’re too kind. I’d really love to make it my full-time job someday. I’m too cowardly at the moment, but I’m working on it!
