Jane Austen Evening

As a big fan of Jane Austen's books, I was excited to find out about this annual gathering of fellow Austenites at the Masonic Temple in Pasadena. I was lucky to work on it with my wonderful editor Christy Harmon at The New York Times and reporter Jennifer Schuessler. Dressed in a velvet dress that passed for era-appropriate, I set up a portable light that I used to take portraits of the well-dressed attendees all night long.
