I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Posted These Yet…

I just realized I have several weddings from the summer that I never posted on the blog! They’re over on Facebook…but sometimes all these sites are just daunting to keep up with! Blarg.

Ok, so…Lisa and Vivek. These two are a few of my favorite people ever. Their so sweet, so in love. They actually married at a courthouse a while ago. Then they went to India and married in Vivek’s hometown with all the traditional Indian ceremonies. Then, they had their last big party here in NY where they celebrated both family cultures, dancing the Hora and J’ai Ho and they had a woman (who apparently is considered the Indian Jane Fonda…her words, not mine…though I cannot remember her name!) who taught the crowd some Indian dance moves. It was fantastic–the two families, though so different, loved each other so much. And Vivek’s mother and Lisa’s mother talk on the phone weekly!!! Here are a handful of my favorites:

Holly Jolly

Bebop and I nestled in to take our holiday photos for Christmas cards this year. This was literally the ONLY photo that turned out. And it wasn’t all Bebop’s fault, either. I mean, yes, some of them, she was making a weird face with her ears back. Or she would lick my ear right as the shutter clicked. But half of the fault is my own–I kept making this stupid pirate eye with one eye squinted smaller than the other. Two lessons learned here: 1) I should stay behind the camera, not in front. 2) My dog is not a child…I should stop treating her as such.

Well, the latter is more of a reminder than a lesson learned. A reminder I have to tell myself daily.

Ellis Newborn Session

This is little Ellis–he was the perfect baby, literally until I rang their doorbell. Then it was as though the world came crumbling down on him. He did not want to sleep. He did not want to be put down at all. It took us over 3-hours, but we finally got some beautiful images of this little guy.
