This shoot with Sara, Todd, Jonah and Theo was so fun. Huge grins and happy-to-play kids make for photo magic. Back to school and the weather cooling down means it’s almost time for holiday cards…send me a message if you’d like to book a session!
One of my favorite artists, writer and director Seonjae Kim came back uptown for a golden hour shoot. You might recognize her from my portraits section, or perhaps her name from Riot Antigone, her Riot Grrrl adaptation of the Greek tragedy Antigone. She came ready to work H2T.
If you are working on a new play, need a good playlist or want to feel alive in your imagination, hire. this. woman. And then stroll with me through a playground and we’ll make some art.
I’m in the middle of my Saturn Return, a period of life every 28-30 years where Saturn makes its way back to where it was when we were each born. It’s intense, and I’ve been faced with my SELF in a way I used to be able to avoid. But it’s also been so celebratory. I feel like I am coming home, rooting deeper than I ever have and also reuniting with what brings me joy.
When my college friend Joe asked about documenting this stage of his life a few months ago, it was an easy yes. We got the last of the cherry blossoms and some splendid spring weather.
I’ve been lucky to work with the team at FCSA for the last year, and I’m so happy to have made it out to this year’s Caterpillar Walk to raise awareness about fibromyalgia. Last year we lucked out with sunny, blue skies, so this year’s forecast of rain was a bit daunting…until we showed up and it cleared just in time! A little bit of weather magic for a very fun event with a special performance by Queen Ilise!
Was so thrilled to capture The Dan Pecci Company’s design for AIDS Walk Boston this year. My dear friend Jayson met me in the middle of Times Square, threw off his jacket and TURNED ON THIS MAGIC. If you’re in the market for a new tank, 50% of profits for all items sold from the WALK, RUN, LOVE collection at danpecci.com go to AIDS Action Committee, helping to support essential programs and services for those living with HIV/AIDS or at risk for HIV infection.
In a series of fortuitous events, I found myself at NYU Tisch’s dress rehearsal for Machinal by Sophie Treadwell. One of my first post-grad shoots was another production of Machinal at Northwestern University, so it was a lovely treat to return to this story about a young woman fighting for a life of meaning and freedom. Amazingly, the lighting designer Krista Smith worked on this show, too (I’ve photographed her work before here and here), and we finally got to meet!
Machinal features undergrad students from the Lee Strasberg Institute and is directed by Matt Dickson.
One of the best parts of being a photographer is getting to witness love in all stages. Met up with soon-to-be-married Danielle and Kyle in Ft. Tryon Park for the loveliest afternoon stroll. Seeing the park change from season to season is always magical, and these two brought so much warmth to the end of winter!
Look at these grins! This was one of the very first shots. Absolute perfection.
It’s pretty rad when one of your best friends from camp A: grows up to be as awesome as an adult as she was as a kid, B: can still make you cackle even after 10 years apart and C: writes a BOOK! More on that soon. For now, enjoy the whimsy of this wonderful afternoon.
Endless laughter. All day long.
