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…

Weekly Puppies

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 was walking home from walking a dog (Yes, I dogwalk to make extra cash) Thursday morning, when I saw this amidst flashing lights:


That’s right. It’s a car. That drove through a deli in Park Slope. Now let’s rewind about 30 minutes earlier before I had walked the dog.

I was walking to the person’s house a little before 9am that morning. Literally, it was probably 8:57am. I was famished. My stomach was cramping, I was so hungry. And I passed this deli…Deli In The Slope. I desperately wanted an egg sandwich, but I had promised to be there by 9am and didn’t want the poor dog waiting any longer to pee. Plus, the place didn’t look open, which I thought was odd for a Thursday morning. So I forged ahead…and it’s a good thing I did. If I hadn’t, it’s very likely that I would have been on the sidewalk at the time this car crashed through the window.

I don’t know all the details, except that the man driving had a heart attack when he crashed and is currently in critical condition. But I do know, according to one report, that he crashed at 9:02am. I  missed this by a matter of minutes. Which is terrifying.
