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!

About

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 an actress sometimes, a producer rarely, a photographer most of the time, and a friend always. But on a serious level, and yes I can be serious, I am a work in progress. I believe if you wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night the same person, you might as well have stayed in bed. Life will kick you in the balls—but I kick back harder. I am a dreamer. I am a romantic. I am pragmatic. I am contradictory. I love my family despite their quirks. I trust my friends, though their flawed. And I embrace every battle despite the scars they leave. Although it’s been proven that caffeine is addictive, stunts your growth, and is bad for your teeth, I like it. Because somewhere, deep down, past my Ralph Lauren polo shirts, there lies a rebel. And that bad girl needs her drug.

    I actually laughed out loud!!! That’s a first for an ‘about’ page! Congratulations on the new website, Colleen! It looks fantastic! I shall run over and change your linky in my blogroll.

    Colleen, your photo is beautiful and your wit is terrific. I cracked up on the fbi comment! And what an absolutely beautiful website! E

    Oh, oh, oh! You have made my day.

    I wonder if anyone is going to take that suggestion seriously. I would LOVE to see the FBI agent’s reaction as he’s reading an email about your website…priceless. I would give my firstborn to witness it. Wait. That doesn’t sound right…
