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!

Wedding Wednesday: Andaye and Wayne

Andaye and Wayne were two of the sweetest, cutest couples I’ve ever photographed. I met with Andaye about a year ago (closer to spring/early summer) and she just immediately lit up when I asked her to tell me about Wayne and how they met. Furthermore, I think the colors they chose and the bright tropical themed flowers reflected her bubbly personality perfectly. I do have to admit, they were a tough couple to photograph {only} because Wayne was SO SO SO TALL! Other than that–the whole day was perfect.

A couple weeks ago I was walking home from my coffee shop and came across a man who lived in my neighborhood handing out flyers. His dog had run away (right after a bath and therefore didn’t have her collar on). I stayed outside with him for over an hour, walking around the park calling out her name, Blackstarr.

The temperature was rapidly dropping–this was days before we had the record low temperature of 3 degrees. After an hour and a half, I had to get home for a phone meeting–it just broke my heart to leave this guy on his own. I still don’t know if he found Blackstarr. I tried calling him and never heard back…which leaves my mind to thinking the worst, of course. The night that the temperature dropped so dramatically, I held Bebop and Red close to me and cried for Blackstarr and every other stray and lost animal that had to brave the elements that cold night.

Bebop is micro-chipped, but neither of my dogs had tags on their collar. That night, I ordered them these gorgeous copper pressed tags made by DawgTown. They are truly stunning. I can’t wait to take a few more photos so you can really see how beautiful they are. Jackie did an amazing job–and for only a few bucks more than the shitty ones you get from Petco, you can have a true work of art.

I would be an absolute wreck if one of my dogs ran away or got lost. But at least now I know that I’ve done everything I can to prevent this and prepare for it if it does happen.
