My Favourite Photos of Tricia

Tricia is one my wife Stephanie’s best friends and today is her birthday.

Tricia was one of the first people to whom Stephanie introduced me when we first started dating.  And Tricia is one of the people who’s been most consistently THERE in Stephanie’s and my life to see us through our various stages, always offering a truthful mirror and encouraging advice.  Tricia also happens to be exceedingly photogenic.

Because of all this, Tricia has been subject for various styles of photography I’ve evolved through over the last 7 years.  From my days of using only C41 films and having labs process all my work, to trying my hand at posed portraits, to wedding photography, and finally to my current style of hand-processed and digitized grainy b&w bar/party candids.

So anyway, here’s a little collection of my favourite photos of Tricia.  Happy birthday and thank you for being such a good friend… and, a breathtaking model!

  1. She really is enormously photogenic. And I can’t believe you got film processing at Target as late as 2012. Out here in middle America, you can’t get processing at Target, CVS, Walgreens, Costco, et al, anymore, not for probably four or five years now.


    1. The film lab thing is in a sad state compared to 10 or more years ago. There are s few “pro” labs within an hour or so of my home which somehow are still in operation but their work is dodgy at best. Maybe the Lomo crowd are keeping them in business but for anyone talking their film work seriously, home processing and good mail order labs seem to be the only way to go for most of us. Thanks for reading!
