A world filled with snow is like sticking your models in the middle of a lightbox – light reflecting from all sides, bright and beautiful.

A snowstorm, one of the biggest in years, slams down in Philadelphia, closing schools and workplaces, bringing silence. I walk the two blocks over to my friend Holly’s house and she puts on her prom dress. Then we go outside and take photos for a half hour.

While we are taking photos, Kyle Cassidy, famous and fabulous photographer happens to walk by, and sees us taking photographs. Why? Because he is out taking photos himself. Photographers love snowstorms, lightboxes brought to earth.
