AP called me to cover a press conference in Mentor announcing the identity of "Baby Grace" was discovered. The girl is Riley Ann Sawyers from Mentor. It was a hard press conference to shoot.
The first photo is of Riley's father, Robert, talking about her life and the things he remembered the most about her. The second photo is of Sheryl Sawyers, grandmother to Riley, and Ray, uncle to Riley. Sheryl is holding a picture of Riley and an Elmo doll she bought her for Christmas.
My son Luca is 7 months old now, and I can't imagine what this family is going through. My condolences go out to the Sawyers family. This press conference was very emotional, and I hope my photos helped tell this unfortunate story.

Sometimes a wedding shoot is nothing like any other wedding shoot. Dawn and Kevin's wedding photos were a perfect example. Dawn called me to discuss wedding photography a few months ago. She and Kevin were already married out on the west coast, and what she needed was some reception coverage. But in addition to the reception photos, she wanted some interesting portraits of the two of them in a different setting. So what she wanted was some images shot at Lakeview Cemetery. We had a fantastic time and the portraits are way cool. These are some of my favorites. The setting was screaming black and white.
