More Faces of Hartford


Lloyd calls himself "old school."  He is 85 years old and worked many years
at Pratt & Whitney.  He says that he wears a hat every day.


During the week Keirsten works in a sedate real estate office, 
but her real passion is roller derby!


Shakyla is 17.  This summer she is working in her mother's clothing boutique.
And, yes, she is signed to a modeling agency.


Laree operates a business called Vintage Chic by Design.  She also organizes special events.  
She recently closed her store, but she still operates the business online.
Laree is thinking of opening a new store for the holidays.

We have a secretary at the office who is on a roller derby team. It is like leading a double life.

The ladies are gorgeous, but I admit that I was impressed by the Pratt & Whitney guy... I also like the idea that he wears a hat every day!

Roller derby? Really? Lloyd looks great in a hat so good for him for wanting to wear one every day.

Lloyd is a handsome fellow who looks like he is enjoying his retirement. I can almost see Keirsten rolling around the track. You completely read my mind with Shakyla. My very first thought was she ought to be a mode. And, if I popped into Laree's store I just might walk out with that red jacket with the buttons on the lapel.

What fun, interesting shots for the day!! Lloyd is indeed a handsome fellow! Lovely ladies for the day as well! I'm sure you had fun taking these!!

Roller derby!! I used to love watching the old roller derby with the banked tracks but the new ones on a flat floor are not as exciting! IMO.

You find the nicest people in Hartford. You should start charging for your portraits, they're so wonderful!

Kay said...

Great shots!
I'm having trouble believing Lloyd's 85. And roller derby? We had a realtor in Arizona who packed a pistol. I think I prefer roller derby. Shakyla is gorgeous and Laree looks like she's full of energy.

Wonderful portrait shots, Jack.

They're all great portraits. As much as I love the colour and vitality of them, the first is my favourite. Rather whimsical.

The serene expression of the gentleman's face on top is quite beautiful. Wonderful portraits, Jack!
