I think I need to volunteer at a hospital or something. I'm having baby withdrawals.

Dinner Parties at Tru

I had a wonderful but tiring week! I shot two dinner parties at Tru in Chicago and I swear that place is just set up for graphic images. Here are a few of my favorites.

A little time in NYC

I have to admit, I hardly removed my lens cap the entire week I was in New York. It was nice to relax and catch up with my closest friends without thinking about photo too much. I managed to snap a few that I like in the first couple of days of vacation. Now I'm in Chicago, back at TRU, about to shoot a dinner party. I feel like I've been on the move the entire summer.

Another Glimse at the Pinto Hospital


My grandparents' photos hang at the entrance to the hospital.


A patient brought her four-month-old son that my aunt delivered along with her for a checkup.

Full story to come later this summer...

More of the North

Before I bombard you with photos from the numerous operations I've observed, here's some more photos from my trip to the North.

We tried to climb and reach that glacier (possibly snow) at the valley ahead - but the current got too strong and we had to give up.

An incomplete update..

I have been without much internet access or desire to post for the past week as I have been busy observing so many fascinating surgeries everyday. I've seen a C-section, hysterectomy, laparoscopy to remove a gallbladder, breast lump removals, cataract removal, and an open heart surgery all in the past 5 days. Even if my photos aren't stunning, the experiences were. The human body paired with doctor's knowledge and ability is truly something incredible to see in action. I guess there must some medical blood still in my system from the hoards of doctors I'm related to.
