Die heerlijke mannen van Pericles ❤. Eerlijk is eerlijk: je kunt niet om ze heen. De liefde voor dit dispuut begon op de avond dat ze besloten om hele vissen door de bar te gooien! Sindsdien zijn we onafscheidelijk 😊 #puhpuhpuh

John's Ice Cream. Liberty, Maine. July 3, 2018

Aaron is back from Boston - he got back on Sunday and we took the boys to John's. Everyone loves this ice cream place, everyone from camp goes there.
Today was so so so hot and humid. Too hot to think. Too hot to move. I took my third period shibori class to the sprinkler in the backyard to cool down. We were all desperate for a cool down. Tomorrow is going to be hotter! I'm planning on heading to the lake to cool down. I feel like all classes should be canceled and everyone needs to spend the day cooling off in the lake.
Aaron and I are now upstairs in the peach room, sweating. Yay for summer, I love it! #johnsicecream #camplife #blackbears #summersinmaine #icecream #hotandhumid #edenswartzphotography #kickass #puhpuhpuh #lovewins❤️❤️❤️

These Things Happen At Camp. June 29, 2018
Mayim got two bug bites on his left ankle, one in front and one in back, his entire foot swelled up. He couldn't walk, it was red and angry. He had to go to the doctor, he was not a happy camper. The doctor said he was getting better and yesterday he felt much better, today he was almost back to normal. The bites had blisters, the blisters popped and things are healing. He did get to hitch a ride with a PD on the golf cart, so that was cool.
Also, shibori is totally happening at Timbuktu. My classes are mellow, they are even sewing their designs! I am very impressed! Teaching shibori is my favorite part of camp.

Camp Interior. Norm the Dorm. June 24, 2018
For those of you who have not been to sleep away camp, and for those of us who did, but did so as kids, here is what my room looks like at camp. The bed is different than what the kids get, they sleep in bunk beds. But the cubbies are the same. Isn't mine tidy? I am sitting on my bed right now, typing this. It is 9:17 pm and I am ready for bed. It's been really cold at night, so I bought myself a hot water bottle today. I am so excited! How did I not think of this sooner?
Today I took 2 portraits of every camper. One stays here and one gets sent home to parents. Before this, I did not realize that not all children know how to smile. Some children do not know how.
Tomorrow is the first day of regular camp schedule I am really happy to have a schedule again. Torpor time will be happening. Today I did not get any down time and I almost cried in the parking lot of Walgreens. Sweet dreams, friends. Love, Eden #smile #camplife #sleepawaycamp #summersinmaine #normthedorm #edenswartzphotography #kickass #puhpuhpuh #lovewins❤️❤️❤️

Happiest Camper. Wombles. HVC 2018. June 22, 2018
Mayim moved into Wombles today! The coolest thing about that is that Aunt Marisa was a camper in Wombles almost thirty years ago. That is an unbelievable legacy! He was the first camper to move in, the kids of Pro Staff get to move in the night before everyone arrives. Mayim loves greeting all of the kids in his cabin on Arrival Day, tomorrow. Arrival day is a long, tedious day where we wait for all of the kids to arrive. It's no one's favorite, but the feeling of being back at camp is a big one. Seeing camp friends after being separated for a year is the best. Camp friends saved my life! You know who you are!!! Sending you BIG LOVE - your friendship and love changed my life and made me into the woman I am! #happycamper #hvc #hvc2018 #wombles #campfriends #edenswartzphotography #kickass #puhpuhpuh #lovewins❤️❤️❤️

First "Official" Day of Camp For Me. June 21, 2018
This is Camp Road. And today is my first official day, (I showed up 2 days early, by accident, I had the date wrong). Walking into camp on this first day, anything and everything is possible. I know there is hard work ahead of me. Some parts of me are wary and scared and feel overwhelmed, but every once in a while, I feel that camp magic again. Walking to my cabin tonight, the moon is bright, the stars are brilliant, it's cold outside and I could feel that old magic. I am grateful to feel it, still. Today was a lovely day of reunions with old friends, and I'm excited to be making new ones. Every year here is so different. This photograph holds all of the possibilities that newness possesses.

Anika and Kelly. Illuminating Family, Reframing Teen Parenthood. May 13, 2018
Happy Mother's Day!!! Anika (on the left) was one of my prenatal yoga students. One day in class, I mentioned that I had been taking photographs of teen families and she told me that her mom was a teen mom. Kelly, Anika's mom, was 18 when she had Anika. By 19 she had earned her degree as a Registered Nurse. This photo shoot was so special because I got to take photos of Kelly, Anika and Anika's newborn baby.
Four days until the opening! I am continuing to do a lot of yoga breathing, meditating and using my mantras.
I will see you at the Paragon Gallery on May 17th! 4:00-7:00 PM. 815 N Killingsworth St. There will be food and drinks! Please bring your family and your friends! This is a celebration!!! Kids are welcome, mine will be there, too!

Isabelle and Aaliyah. Sisters. Illuminating Family, Reframing Teen Parenthood. May 12, 2018
Zulay! The very first moment I met Zulay, she gave me a gigantic hug. Her heart is huge and wide open. She is one of those people who exudes love and I love being around people like that, like Zulay. These beautiful girls are her daughters. Zulay was 17 when she found out she was pregnant. That was a long time ago, she has been through so much, she has endured a lot, but she continues to rise to greatness. Her family is beautiful. She owns her own business. She has also been so supportive of me, which makes me feel so good. I think she is absolutely lovely.
Aaron and I brought everything to the gallery today. There were two, young men there, they took awesome care of us.! All I had to do was put the photographs and stories where I want them, they did the rest! It was amazing!

The show is in the gallery, everyone!!! I have been working on this for three years and I'm totally freaking out because the walls are covered with my work and your stories and it's like I hung my heart on those walls. It's been an incredible journey, meeting all of you has brought me so much happiness. I loved meeting all of you, making connections, building community. It's my favorite. It's all about love. And kindness. And compassion. And breathing.
Five days until the opening! Unbelievable! I will be doing a lot of yoga breathing, meditating and using my mantras.
And, I will see you at the Paragon Gallery on May 17th! 4:00-7:00 PM. 815 N Killingsworth St. There will be food and drinks! Please bring your family and your friends! This is a celebration!!! Kids are welcome, mine will be there, too!

Melanie Then and Now. With Her Mama, Vanessa. Illuminating Family, Reframing Teen Parenthood. May 11, 2018
You already know how much I love Vanessa and Melanie. Look at Melanie at 1 year old and now at 3. She is completely glamourous. Vanessa and Melanie came to my house recently. Melanie made me carry her up the stairs and she made Aaron carry her down the stairs. She is sassy and smart as heck. I met Vanessa when Melanie was a tiny, tiny baby, a newborn. Actually, I might have met her right before Melanie was born. Either I met her at that time, or I dreamed I met her. I hope Vanessa, Melanie and their family will come over and swim with us this summer, that would be so much fun.
When I went to Vanessa's new apartment for our second photo shoot, she and Melanie made brownies. Vanessa and I talked and talked while the brownies were cooking. Melanie did her own thing, but would come in and visit with us every now and again. She introduced me to her watermelon that she had named Pig. (I think Pig might be a character from Moana, she is really into Moana). I have very big news for all of you. Everything is framed. All of the stories are ready. Tomorrow we are going to the gallery to hang the entire show. I can hardly wrap my mind around what is happening. I have spent so many years working on this and it is happening tomorrow, then the opening on Thursday. I am so excited! I hope everyone feels how much love I have for all of the people that have joined me in this endeavor. That is my hope. That there is a lot of love.
Six days until the opening! I will see you at the Paragon Gallery on May 17th! 4:00-7:00 PM. 815 N Killingsworth St. There will be food and drinks! Please bring your family and your friends! This is a celebration!!! Kids are welcome, mine will be there, too!

Shayla and Lauren. Illuminating Family, Reframing Teen Parenthood. May 10, 2018
Shayla has the most beautiful eyes, she is absolutely stunning. And she is a good kid, too. Sweet and kind, just like her mom. Lauren suggested we meet at the Marigold Hydropark. I had never even heard of it before, but it's a really cool spot.
Lauren was 16 when she found out she was pregnant, her story is so romantic. I love it. I want you to read it in person, and so I will see you at the show!
Seven days until the opening!
I will see you at the Paragon Gallery on May 17th! 4:00-7:00 PM. 815 N Killingsworth St. There will be food and drinks!
Bring your family and your friends! Kids are welcome, mine will be there, too!
Love, Eden
