Jessi Arnold, Senior 2010.
Taken in Baton Rouge and Mandeville, Louisiana.
Two friends of mine got engaged recently. Before David proposed, Leigh had mentioned that if he ever did pop the question, she wanted pictures of her reaction. I was honored to take them :)
Dear Haiti, A Love Note.

Night before Valentine’s Day.
I had a wonderful time with Andy tonight, even if it was just for a few hours.
But now I’m back in post-seeing-the-boyfriend depression, trying to edit a large batch of theatre pictures that I’ve been putting off for a very, very long time. I love the theatre, and I loved seeing the girls do Steel Magnolias, and I love all the girls that were in Steel Magnolias. So why can’t I get this done?
Maybe because today I’ve been listening to Emilie Simon sing beautifully in French and watching her music videos on YouTube. Have you ever seen that junk? It’s amazing. It makes me wish I could drop out of school, forget all non-photographic aspirations I have for my life, spend half my life train-bumming, and the other half selling art photography in the French Quarter.
But back to reality… theatre pictures. Right. Right.
Oh, I need to read a book and write a book review, some time soon.
Oh, and read another 120 pages of Atlas Shrugged by Monday.
Oh, and I’m leaving for a trip on Wednesday and I still have to find subs for my work shifts.
Oh, and my eyes hurt.
I’m going to continue drinking the nectar of the gods (diet coke) to stay alive, and contemplating eating my Valentine’s candy…before Valentine’s. It’s past midnight - does that count? Also, where’s the Excedrin gone?
No One Else Can Feel It For You

It snowed at my little college in Dayton, TN. A lot. Like, 6 inches a lot. And to me, from south Louisiana, that’s a lot a lot.
This is a photo I took this past semester on 11.20.2009. It was definitely a big experiment for me to do portrait photography with an external. At night, in the cold, on train tracks, nonetheless.
Taken with a Nikon D100, with a 18-35mm lens and a Speedlight external flash (not sure what model, sorry.)
ISO 1600 (I know, I know.)
Anna Kat & Justin had just started dating when we went on this shoot. They’re adorable and gracious and I like them very much.
