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 Season

Wedding Season

And off we go. Wedding Season–a photographer’s DREAM. Granted, this was from a wedding last year, the beautiful Emily and the dashing DC Vito. Their wedding was very personalized and beautiful in a tiny town in Vermont.  And the dress–Emily’s mother MADE it. Is that not spectacular??  I wish I had that kind of talent. The best I can do is knit a scarf. And even then, chances are it will be uneven with weird scraggles at the ends.

Dream House

Dream House

This here, people, is my dream house. I love the old Tudor style (Tudor, right? I think that’s correct…) and how cozy and inviting it looks. It’s the kind of house that would invite you in for some tea and cookies and allow you to curl up in a blanket in front of its fireplace.

The only problem with this house is that it is in Vermont. And do you KNOW how cold Vermont gets in the winter? And by winter, obviously I am talking about September through May. Because there is no fall or spring anywhere in New England.

Bridges of Derry County

Bridges of Derry County

I first saw the Movie The Bridges of Madison County with Sean. It’s one of his favorite “chick flicks.” I enjoyed it, though didn’t enjoy the fact that it was celebrating adultery.

While we were visiting NH and Vermont, we drove around finding interesting covered bridges for me to photograph…they’re pretty much the only interesting things in these states. The moment captured here was taken within the two hours of the entire trip when it wasn’t cold and rainy. I wore my rain boots so that standing in muddy puddles wouldn’t be so terrible. And just as I was focusing my lens for this image, Sean pulled me to the side of the rode and kissed me. With our lips intertwined, a car came speeding by and splashed a big muddy puddle all over us.

Not quite as romantic as Clint Eastwood…
