Happy New Year!

I interrupt my ‘Best of…” blogs to bring you the following series.

Bright and early this morning I was forced to head outside, not even realizing at first, that it was snowing! While I only had to walk about 5 short and 2 long blocks, I still felt a bit annoyed by having to venture out into the cold. After bundling up and stepping outside, I decided to make the best of it and capture the beautiful snowfall with my iPhone and the CameraBag app.

I really really really love Brooklyn. It’s a pretty inspiring place to live. I try so hard not to take it for granted, but I definitely do sometimes. Especially with the cold, snowy weather, this morning was a nice change to not be rushing to the subway or lugging all my camera gear (though part of me wishes I had brought my 5DmkII). It was just me, empty streets, some fresh snow and a coffee.

Happy New Year everyone!

2009 Best of Babies…

Wow. When I started going through these baby photos, I was amazed at how many babies I’ve photographed this year! Obviously photographing babies is a total joy and picking a ‘best of…’ selection was really hard. All my favorites ended up being black and white images, which I found interesting. I’m going to try to keep my ‘best of…’ posts to ten images. So here are my top ten favorite baby photos of 2009…

Headshots!

Last Tuesday, I spent the day at Space4Shoots in Manhattan doing a series of headshots. While I love on location shoots, it’s also really nice to be in the studio for the day, especially when it’s freezing out! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

Montclair, NJ Wedding – Amanda and Paul

I know, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and I still haven’t blogged photos from England! I’m actually pretty behind on posts, but instead of playing catch up, I’m going to blog my shoot from this weekend.

On Saturday I had the pleasure of capturing Amanda and Paul’s wedding which was extra special for me, because Amanda and I used to work together (in my previous life as a speech therapist). Knowing Amanda, I knew it’d be a good time, but I’m not sure I was prepared for how awesome an event it would be! The wedding and reception took place at The Loft in Montclair, NJ – a beautiful space. Amanda, Paul, their families and friends were such a blast to be around and to photograph. Truly, it was a perfect end to the 2009 wedding season!

During the making of this comedic shot, Amanda was only slightly injured…

I don’t normally put family portraits on my blog or even website, but there is just something about this photograph (the couches were all Amanda’s idea) that I really love.

It took a bit of effort to get Paul on the dancefloor…
