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…

Weekly Photo

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy.

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!

Me: Can I pack a few things in your bag?

The Boyfriend!: Depends what…

Me: Mostly things we’re sharing. A towel, bar of soap, shampoo…

The Boyfriend!: Sure.

Me: …make up, curling iron and tampons.

Me: (sigh) No…they will think you’re traveling with a woman. Which you are. So you should probably get used to traveling with tampons.

The Boyfriend!: Fine. But then you’re finding space in your own bag for make up and hair stuff.

Me: Deal.
