Living history project

Rosa ParksSelf-assignments are a big part of working as a freelance photographer. Some last years and others, like this one, can last an hour start to finish. A couple of months ago, my oldest child’s class had to present a biography report while dressed up in character. As I was dropping him off at school, I thought it would be fun to photograph all of the kids in their costume. So I contacted the school and got permission to come in and make portraits of the children in his class. Afterwards, I had each child sign their name as if they were that character to go along with their picture.

Here are a few of my favorite portraits from the series.
Abraham Lincoln Florence Nightingale Davy Crockett Betsy Ross Benjamin Franklin Amelia Earhart Elvis Presley Martin Luther King Jr. Frida Kahlo Davy Crockett Sacagawea Amelia Earhart Abraham Lincoln Thomas Edison
