Crane Country Day School, Montecito CA
As a mom I get such a kick from watching my child express who he is, so when headmaster Joe Weiss of Crane Country Day School approached me with a unique fundraising concept, I partnered up immediately. We invited students to pose with their “favorite things” which included everything from a stack of Harry Potter books to a very opinionated chicken! Joel’s brilliant vision allowed the kids to relax and play in front of the camera. My skill set made for a collection of beautiful portraits that reveal some of the bright personalities of Crane’s student body. We then made the series into a gorgeous bound book for parents to purchase, the proceeds of which went support Crane’s education programs. A stellar partnership from the first brainstorming session to the studio wrap, this project was good for the community and good for the soul.
