Pollo Loco Taco Pecker

Henny Penny is getting a little aggressive with the people food lately. We were eating dinner outside and she hopped on the chaise and then hopped onto the back of Marley’s chair and attacked her taco! No children were harmed in the production of this video.

Good Eye

Thanks to Flash and the kids for excusing me from Mother’s Day festivities @ home. Instead, had an unbelievably great weekend at the Shambhala Center in Birmingham. Did a photo workshop on Miksang–or Good Eye. Awesome! These are all images made @ the workshop this weekend.
Hope to start a Miksang photo group in Birmingham soon. Great for all levels of photography experience from never held a camera to pro. The beauty is in it’s simplicity. Stripped down pure vision. No flash allowed. No cropping allowed. No Photoshop allowed. No manipulating the scene. Very different from what I usually do.

Flash was the roving candid photographer at GAGA for Art, a fundraiser for children’s programming at the 2010 Magic City Art Connection on Saturday. Looks like fun!

You Ought to Be in Pictures


Picture Party – Images by Christine Prichard

We hosted a multiple photo session bonanza at The Okey Dokey Ranch last week. Foul weather forced us into the garage; we had hoped to do an outdoor shoot. But we managed to get some fun and unique images anyway. Flash was a wonderful assistant, right-hand man and post-production whiz. Marley and Avery even got into the spirit by entertaining young and old while we shot, and shot, and shot.

A big thank you to the families, and especially the children we photographed–you were the best!

I’m posting some of my favorites here. Don’t you just love the sepia and hand-colored versions?

Funds raised from this shoot were donated to Alabama Waldorf School.
