I’m in England!

And I’m having an absolutely amazing time.

I’ve taken lots of photos, but for now I’m going to post one of my favorites. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving. I’ll write more when I’m home!

Thoroughly Modern Millie

You may remember Rachel from her headshot (here) or from having the lead in Oklahoma (here). Well this is her senior year of high school and for the third year in a row, I had the pleasure of photographing Manhasset High School’s fall musical. I secretly (or not so secretly) love to photograph plays. I find myself tapping along, sometimes even singing along and I always have the songs stuck in my head for days after. I’m a total musical fan…

Here is a sneak peak of Thoroughly Modern Millie, which I photographed during their dress rehearsal. As a matter of fact… as I type this, the curtain is probably opening on their opening night. Break a leg, guys!

Central Park Family Shoot – Fayez, Mira & Sami

Oh my! It’s been a crazily busy time here, but it feels fantastic. I spent the past week filling lots of holiday print orders (hooray for people thinking of things early!) and posting hundreds of preschool photographs in their galleries! On top of that, I’ve been photographing newborns and families and booking weddings for 2010 – I’m just having a wonderful time.

I’m also happy to mention that I have a minted storefront. Anyone who did a 2009 shoot can visit and order holiday (and other) cards directly from Minted using photos taken during our shoots. If you aren’t familiar with their work – check it out (click me)!

But now onto the title of this post… New Yorkers were so lucky to have such amazing weather last weekend (as it pours outside my window while typing this). Last Sunday I headed uptown to photograph Fayez, Mira and Sami. We spent some time in Central Park (further north than I usually visit – which was great!), their apartment and then at a nearby playground. I think we got some great holiday card shots. Here is a sneak peak at a few of my favorite shots – thanks you guys for fun morning!

Highline Engagement Shoot – Lindsay & Jason

Today was just beautiful! I have been wanting to do a shoot at the High Line for some time now, so I was excited when Lindsay and Jason were up for the idea. While our first attempt got rained out, we could not have asked for a better November morning than we got today. It wasn’t too cold and the sky was amazingly blue and clear! I had a really fantastic time working with them and I’m so excited with how our photos came out.

Enjoy the sneak peak, guys. Thanks for a great morning!

24 Hours

I really, really, really love my job. Some days, when I’m on my way to ‘work’ I get the urge to pinch myself, because it’s hard to believe that I actually get to do what I love to do for a living. There many things I love about being a photographer, but the best things of all are the people I get to meet and the places I get to go.

I’m also luck to be a photographer in New York, because I have an endless supply of amazing ‘backdrops’ and I try to never take that for granted. I also think its amazing that I get to interact with so many wonderful people! From musicians, to new parents, to couples in love, to aspiring actors, to hysterical pre-schoolers… how could I ever get bored?

I’ve been super busy lately, so blogging is going to have to take a bit of a back-seat. But here is a peak at all the fun shoots I had in the last 24 hours (minus all the film I’ve been shooting, which I hope to post soon!).
