Barbara O. Geshekter – Portrait of an Author

I met Lucy, Barbara’s red haired poodle at the door, happily barking and announcing my arrival. Barbara then invited me into her home. A home that overflowed with books, art and warmth. We started talking and immediately I was taken in by her intelligence, sense of humor, love for food and passion for enjoying life.

I think I was still Oooing and Ahhing over Barbara’s home when Anna and Kristen of Farrell Design Group joined us for the shoot. They had comissioned me to document Barbara in everyday life for her new book – ‘Words to that Effect’ and also to put their talent as excellent art directors for the shoot to use.

To purchase a copy of Barbara O. Geshekter’s book ‘Words to that Effect’ visit her new website, designed by Farrell Design Group, featuring photos by yours truly 🙂 –

Below you can see my favorite images from our shoot.

Barbara is just the nicest most thoughtful person. Case in point, she made us quiche for lunch during the photo shoot. It was amazing 🙂
