There is nothing sweeter than a newborn shoot…  Here is my new friend Luca, freshly hatched, and gorgeous in every way.  He’s a very lucky fellow as his parents are two of the loveliest (and most talented) people I have the pleasure of knowing!

 People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.

-Anton Checkhov

As the Spring wedding season begins, I’d like to share one last Wintery wedding.   Meredith & Edward’s January wedding was on one of the coldest days of the year, in the midst of the record breaking Boston snowfall.  It had all of the romance of a great Russian novel (plus one of the most moving and deeply emotional love stories I’ve had the privilege to photograph.)  A few favorites from their glorious day caught on Fuji Film.

Dear Meredith & Edward,  thank you for trusting me enough with your memories to venture out into the frigid air and make some fabulous portraits!

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

-Ingrid Bergman

Jessica and Daniel’s gorgeous wedding has been burning a figurative hole in my pocket for months now, but I had to keep it under wraps until this fabulous feature!  This one has everything, gorgeous planning and event design by Gina of Shi Shi Events, stunning Vera Wang pedigree, an absolutely perfect Summer day, and to top it off a gorgeous couple radiant with love for one another!

     It was the day after a night of rain.  A washing away of winter from Brooklyn Bridge Park.  The setting for Keilly & Scott’s luminous engagement, caught on film.  I love the way the puddles in the streets reflect the light.

I love the way Scott and Keilly’s eyes reflect their adoration of one another.  A few favorites from a fabulous session:2015-04-15_002

Marcy and Scott’s elegant New York City soirée was not only gorgeous and glamorous (and Gatsby inspired!) but it also had one of the most personal and loving ceremonies I’ve had the privilege to photograph.  Marcy, an opera singer/national pole dancing champion, and Scott, a PR agent and rescue helicopter pilot are so tender with one another.  It made for such a romantic day.  Here are a few of my favorite shots (on Fuji 400h, of course,) from their fabulous wedding day!

One of the highlights of last wedding season was photographing the joyful celebration of Elif & Emeka’s wedding.  Elif is the most elegant and lovely woman.  A moment in her presence and everyone feels a bit more grounded and calm.  She has that effect on people.  This quality, combined with Emeka’s  warmth and kindness makes it easy to see why over 400 people wanted to celebrate their union – they are two of the most genuine, sweet and fun people!

It was my first time photographing a Nigerian – American- Turkish wedding but I’m sincerely hoping it will not be my last.  A few favorites from a spectacular celebration (designed my brilliant dear friend Gina of Shi Shi Events) of two wonderful individuals and three glorious traditions.

The Kind of Post You Don’t Want To WriteFebruary 15, 2015

posted in Families, Personal

Can I see another’s woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another’s grief,
And not seek for kind relief?

-William Blake
 In the day to day of running a business, rushing off to various shoots, and keeping our personal lives together it is sometimes all too easy to forget this simple fact:
As photographers we are first and foremost the record keepers of our time.
When my business was still in its early stages my husband had a colleague who lived with her gorgeous family nearly next door to us.  A beautiful person, inside and out, Melissa was tragically taken from this world last weekend.  She was a courageous and inspirational person but also absolutely lovely, warm, and generous.  I can’t believe she is gone.  I am sending so much love to her husband, to their 3 beautiful children, and to the loving community of Wooster where she lived.
Here is a shot of Melissa with her eldest child from a family shoot we did together back before I was even shooting film again.
