Portraits of Kayla

I’m starting this blog with one of my final images from this photo session with this lovely high school senior because when your client, from Minnesota, asks if she can do something with an obvious NYC background…NYC SHOWS UP..and I was very proud of my city! So to the cab drivers who all pulled up to the stop light together, to the tour bus driver who joined them, and to the awesome dude eating his folded slice on the go – I thank you!

Before that final image happened, I had the pleasure of working with this wonderful high school senior, Kayla, on a beautiful Fall day. I had such a great time capturing her and having the opportunity to see so many layers of her beauty and determination. This young lady, Kayla, is a sibling to another young lady, Lindsey, who has Rett Syndrome. This holiday season my business is donating 10% of all gift certificate purchases to rett syndrome research trust, an organization with a mission to drive the development of treatments and cures for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders. If you’ve been wanting to invest in  the gift of photography for yourself or someone else – now is a wonderful and meaningful time to make that investment. You give as you get with a gift certificate purchase via my online store. Thank you, as always, for your support.

A Wedding at Home

I am forever in gratitude to this couple for hiring me to capture their beautifully, intimate wedding at home. After my first consultation with them I told myself, “If they book me, I will purchase the rolleiflex camera I had been wanting for so long.” The moment they confirmed that I would be their photographer – I bought the camera! I didn’t tell them this until I arrived at their wedding with the rolleiflex in hand and asked if I could capture some portraits of them with it since they were the reason I was able to buy it sooner than I had originally planned. They obliged and were so patient with me, knowing I was still in practice mode with it. In the end – I was thrilled to be able to deliver an extra gift of “vintage” quality photography to them on their wedding day.

The film captures appear together at the end of this blog post.

Enjoy…

ROLLEIFLEX FILM IMAGES…

September 11th Tribute

This week, in preparation for today’s memorial service at the World Trade Center, I had the opportunity to join with the employees of Marsh & McLennan, a company that lost the second largest group of people on 9/11, as they volunteered to help prepare gifts for the families of those lost and to clean up the site where their colleagues are being remembered today.  It was my honor to capture these moments.

Duets

If I could add sound to these photos – I guarantee you – these voices would astound you! Since I can’t – enjoy seeing how passionate and energizing these performers are and be sure to follow my dear friend, Jesse , so that you can bask in his extraordinary talents… and then check out his wonderfully gifted friend, Patrice as well!  Together, they are working on a new project and I was honored to be there photographing them during this promotional video shoot.

South Street Seaport cont’d.

Aside from having the experience of using my Rolleiflex with this family (see those images here )- we covered a lot of ground at South Street Seaport. We made it to the playground & the candy store. Some pigeons got chased, and we found a Jenga game as well as a wheelbarrow. What more could we ask for?! We had a lot of fun in spite of scraped knees. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to work with this wonderful family.

First Rolleiflex Family!

I’ve been putting this camera to work! I brought it to this family’s photo session and captured some of their images with the Rolleiflex. I am excited to share some of the film scans with you. I had a BLAST with this family of 3 at South Street Seaport. It’s always a pleasure to work with new clients and to learn about their family. This trio and I had 2 hours of fun! Stay tuned for more from my time with them.
