Emily and I spent this weekend wrapping up the last of her art school (for Fashion) applications. I had a lot of fun shooting imagery for her, taking pictures of her lovely form modeling her lovely clothes. It was splendid. I only wish I had proper strobes. Oh well. I did well despite our amateur equipment.

Below are some of the shots of her creations. I can only hope that F.I.T. and Parsons know what’s good for them and take notice. Emily is daring to imagine a new life for herself at an age when it’s so easy to be complacent. It shames me in a way, because I could be doing so much more. I’m just proud to know her. She reminds me that so many of my friends do amazing things and take on real challenges over and over. Bethany, Mel, Mark and Sara come to mind. They inspire me to do the same.

[UPDATE, May 2007]
Emily was accepted to BOTH Parsons and FIT for fashion design. Congratulations, Emster!
