I’ve got to work on my portrait skills, which basically means that mostly Odin and sometimes Paige have to deal with being guinea pigs. So it goes, the life of the photographer’s family. Check out the pictures. You’ll get the idea that Odin is pretty interested in the flash.

odin goes up country

December 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Paige

odin’s a cow

November 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments · Paige

the major holiday season is here. of course in uganda, unless you invest in celebrating, that holiday season can completely pass you by since there are no seasonal changes to indicate the passing of fall and the onset of cold and snow and winter. halloween, the now harbinger of retail holiday chaos, doesn’t [...]

odin goes to work

October 15th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Paige

combining work and motherhood is never easy, so i am taking the “take your child to work day” concept as far as i can and bringing odin with me to work at every reasonable opportunity. so far, he’s presented to donors, participated in international conference calls, revised budgets, and developed program management plans like [...]
