black lives matter

  We’re lucky to live in America, it’s a great place with amazing people.  But despite all that’s good, there’s a lot of disturbing things going on right now.  Here’s my latest exploration of the political climate in America in 2020.  Coronavirus, crooked politicians, murder hornets, crashing markets, racism and political unrest.  Here, a lone…

toilet time

It’s been a while since I posted, and even longer since I’ve done a conceptual portrait.  This one is called “Toilet Time” because, well, who doesn’t need a bathroom at West 4th St from time to time? It’s a continuation of theme set in my steampunk girl watching tv which, up to this point, is…

epic space bat mitzvah

This amazing little bat mitzvah took place at Space in Englewood, New Jersey.  Though the family is from New York City, they picked Space because of it’s amazing atmosphere and staff.  And I have to say about the only thing that topped the event production were the heart-felt friends and family who attended the party.  It…

skinny pig

I came up with this “burger head” idea when I was helping my friend Joe do a headshot session with New York foodie, Dara Pollak.  Dara, aka The Skinny Pig, has an awesome blog where she reviews restaurants, shares ideas and recipes, and generally nerds out on all things yum.  We were talking about doing…

professional headshots

I’ve always wondered if a PR company needs a PR company.  So when Eleven Six PR needed to update their website and asked me to shoot their headshots, I decided to ask.  The answer:  we do our own PR because we’re awesome at it!  It’s a small detail, but having mismatched headshots on a website…

nyc reflections

It’s been a long time since I did a walkabout photo session, but that’s exactly what I found I had time to do on the way to teaching a private photography class on the Upper East Side a few weeks ago.  Street parking in Manhattan is always a pain, and when I ended up parking…

another amazing bar mitzvah

One of the things I love about shooting b’nai mitzvah is I frequently see the same families again at their friends parties, or a year or two later at their siblings celebration.  There’s a real through line, unlike weddings where you may see your couple a year or two down the road when they have…

a stunning wedding collection

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you can book your wedding photographer for your engagement photos, do it! It breaks the ice before your big day and gives you a comfortability you wouldn’t otherwise have on a day when almost everything is stressful. Basically, on your wedding day it translates to:…

pinot grigio

Did someone say donuts and wine? You didn’t? Well, let me be the first to wish you Happy National Pinot Grigio Day! No, I didn’t know it existed either. At least not until I was hired to shoot some pinot. With doughnuts. No seriously, I was. In honor of the auspicious day, The Doughnut Project in…

a snowy family portrait

Family portraits are always special because they preserve a moment in life that is fleeting and won’t come again. The unfortunate thing is, most parents are too busy and tired to schedule a photo session for anything but big events. And when those big events do occur, they’re frequently overwhelming, and the photos can get…
