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!

Kaitlin Monte, Miss NY Headshots

Kaitlin and I met a couple of years ago when she first moved to NYC. She is an actress and model and was just recently crowned Miss New York! We had done a shoot together prior to her being crowned (which I will post soon) and when she was in need of her crown and sash photographs for autograph cards and business cards, I was SO HAPPY she chose me. We work really well together and she seriously is one of the sweetest girls you’ll meet.

Her handsome boyfriend came along as well and was the perfect assistant–holding hangers and hangers of dresses and a makeup kit, his hands busy with lipstick and mascara–that poor guy. But he was awesome and supportive through the whole shoot. And as it turned out, he was also a huge comic book fan. After the shoot, he and Sean had a blast talking about all sorts of geeky things while Kaitlin and I chatted about how awesome our men are (sarcasm? what?).

Here are a few of my absolute favorites from her shoot–my ‘favorites’ were practically IMPOSSIBLE to narrow down, by the way! Congratulations Kaitlin–can’t wait to see you in Miss America next year!
