I have photographed many adorable families this fall and winter(and will share them soon), but I have also gotten to branch out a bit and photograph a lot of local theater. It all started this winter when my daughter participated in the summer theater program put on by Redhouse Arts Center of Tarzan. The kids got to work along side professional actors and they put on a stellar production.
I have always enjoyed the theater and I have been surrounded by it in many ways all of my life. My namesake and great grandmother, Genevieve Guiou served as the President of the Omaha Community Playhouse for a time in the 20’s. And my Grandmother, Echo Guiou Ellick acted in plays there as well and even wrote a few plays that got produced. My father is drama at all times, and now my youngest daughter has caught the bug. 😉 I don’t know why it took me so long to find out about all of the great local theater here in Syracuse.
Here are just a few of my favorite images from recent shows–all at the Redhouse Arts Center unless specified.

And, finally some shots of my little one in her middle school production of The Little Mermaid
What a talented city we have here in Syracuse. Now quick–go and buy tickets to a show.
