A Relocated House in Santa Monica, A Baptism in Van Nuys, A Houseful of Family and (Lots of) Food in Orange County: One Special Day for Alissa
(A Petite Edition of the Hardbound Book by Her Dad)
by Lou Chapman
A very special day in the life of my daughter, seen through the lens of my camera.
I am a photographer, writer and yoga teacher living in Fort Worth, Texas. For nearly 19 years, I was a newspaper reporter, working in New Orleans, Denver, New York, Fort Worth and Boulder, Colo., winning a Pulitzer Prize nomination in 1992. Later I received national awards in the niche field of benefits and compensation communication. At 50, I began practicing yoga and at 53, I was accepted as an Anusara-inspired(TM) yoga teacher. The next year, after a lifetime as a serious amateur and sometimes commercial photographer, I began submitting my Holga photographs for gallery and exhibit consideration. Within 18 months, I had been juried into a dozen national and international exhibits and had photographs in permanent collections.
