I find people most enthralling when listening to their stories. Carolyn is full of stories (both spicy + sweet) and getting to know her through conversation & film, revealed she is equal parts powerhouse and warmth. We shot in her deliciously lived-in Berkeley home with a rich history and breathtaking light. The best kinds of sessions are ones where I have to force myself to take photos amidst lively conversations! By the end of our time together (we were fast-friends) she was taking my portrait, which is my favorite way to wrap up an afternoon!
She does some incredible work on behalf of Shotgun Players at Ashby Stage in Berkeley and in the theatre community as a whole. I can’t recommend them enough, having enjoyed a few of their productions myself!
Thanks for letting me follow you around for an afternoon, miss Carolyn!
