SXSW - You set me all a fire=)
So - I’m sitting here in bed with a huge grin on my cookie-eating face, remembering SXSW and what a tornado it really was. (A TORNADO OF SHEER AWESOME!) Something really clicked for me in all the running to new venues with new bands and new sounds. I have never seen such a motley crew! Everyone eager! Everyone in the moment! The happiest they could remember being! It was fast it was...
Circle in the Square
The other night I went to a cabaret that Circle in the Square’s acting students were putting up at the Triad Theatre (amazing space!) It was a rapid-fire showcase of everything they had to offer and some of their work was truly incredible. I was so frustrated that I didn’t take more shots but after weighing the space/situation, seeing no one else with cameras, being surrounded by...
If you live in the Boston area and would like to schedule a shoot over a weekend with me let me know! Cuz I’m dying to get up there!
SXSW: Melissa Ferrick
Ok. I’m really annoyed. For some reason my flickr keeps not wanting to load things…and one of these things happens to be all of my photos of said musician. HOWEVER!! I was able to upload the ones from The Ale House… and I will gladly share them with all of you=) (*And post more when Flickr and I are friends again) Melissa. I do not even know where to begin. I have heard...

SXSW: Anais Mitchell
Anais was the one on my list that I HAD to see! The Ale House was dimly lit and seemed worlds away from the Chaos of show-goers outside. Her performance was so intimate and allowed for her stories to bounce around the room. Anais wrote a rock-opera “Hades Town”, currently staring Ani Difranco, and performed several pieces from it She is as infinitely interesting as she is talented....
SXSW: The Cassavettes
We are each others puzzle pieces.– mercybell

SXSW Day THREE!!!!
Oh Man! Yesterday marked the end of my SXSW experience but I am forever grateful and filled to the brim with anticipation for the next band I can photograph! I’m still editing and going through SO MANY PICTURES - so until I can sift through it all, let me grant you a little Jenny Owen Youngs and a a DIY singer/songwriter who camouflaged herself in the audience! I wish the lighting was a...

SXSW Day Two!!!
As it is almost 5am, I will make this quick and to the point;) AMAZING DAY!! First we saw The Wandas! INSTANT FAN! They had this pure chemistry that radiated the entire room. Completely in their element and living their dream. We also had the pleasure to interview them and do some press shots;) Here are three of my favorites! Next we ran into this band… BUT I didn’t...
SXSW Day one!
I can’t begin to describe this place. All I can say is that its heaven for musicians. Finally wound up getting to bed at around 3am last night after going through the mountains of pictures. I have NO time right now to post everything that I DESPERATELY want to post, however, I will leave you with some teasers=) Anais Mitchell! I cannot wait to post more of her! She was...
I don’t really like cake…. but I could eat frosting until the world goes off its axis. All seemed normal … yeah….we play with our food.
Regarding the last post . . .

Catch 2 tumble weeds Closing note: In all of my organizational glory, I managed to pack lightly, efficiently and most importantly… I forgot my pajamas. Bother
My friend and adventure companion Mercy introduced me to her cousin Catie this past summer. Catie has an incredible story! She up and left everything that was safe to pursue her dreams of becoming a photographer;) She is absolutely hilarious and makes you feel as though you’ve known her for years. It was because of Catie and her blog that I began to come to grips with blogging and the...
My heart expands for each of you.
Among the trillion of things I’m thankful for I’d like to take a moment to mention these few … My Dad. We’ve gotten closer in the past year than ever before. And no matter how far apart we were from each other, I always knew he believed in me. I always knew I was loved. My mum. She has championed all of my goals and dreams. She erupts with love and laughter at all my...
I have a website!!
It’s a wonderful beginning. I LOVE it! Thank you Curtis! Check it out:) www.jesshodge.com
