white dancer

I love New York. Even in July. Where else can you be strolling home through Central Park from a gig shooting the NYC Triathlon and see a white lady in a white tutu on a white box? Only in New York. And where else would said white dancer wink at you and blow you a…

supermoon

When I found out there was a once in a lifetime supermoon approaching, I knew I wanted to create something to celebrate the event. It had to be big and it had to be unique. After a little digging around and an ad on Craigslist, I found Venus Alers, aka Venus Pain. Fierce. Unique. Amazing. Bigger…

ka-boom!

Family portraits with children can be challenging. Especially when the kids happen to be two rowdy boys, bursting at the seems with New York energy. So to honor one of my more difficult photo shoots of 2015, I decided to Photoshop an image I felt encapsulated the photo session perfectly. Bang!

a cherlsea piers bar mitzvah

Pier 60 on New York’s Chelsea Piers is a great spot for a bar mitzvah blowout, especially with sub-freezing temperatures enveloping the city.

Talk about pressure, David…

kristy head shots

Kristy Fitzgerald needed to update her professional look. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in issues related to addiction, eating disorders, trauma, relationship/communication issues, as well as treating anxiety and/or depression, it was important to her that the photos be comfortable, yet polished, to instill the confidence of her clientele. So she came up from her…

new york winter wedding

This awesome couple was married last winter in the Church of the Holy Innocents in Midtown Manhattan on a nice, snowy day. Thanks to April of April Occasions who was able to pull a last minute permit to shoot in Grand Central Station, we took some portraits in the concourse after the wedding before proceeding to…
