essex ct steam train engagement session

Quite a while back now, Jasmine and I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Trisha and Aaron’s train-themed engagement session. I have some clients who want to do something a little out of the norm for their shoot and I am always more than happy to oblige! Their wedding had a train theme, since they met on a train- so we thought it only fitting to work a train theme into their engagement shoot! And what a shoot we had… I can’t tell you how worked up we all got! Everything was perfect, Tricia and Aaron and how eager and Read More

playa del carmen mexico editorial shoot behind the scenes

An unexpected little surprise of a trip came our way this spring right before I headed down to New Orleans to photograph a wedding in the French Quarter. And if that weren’t glamorous enough, this particular job landed us smack in the middle of one of the most beautiful beaches in the universe- Playa del Carmen, Mexico! How could I say no, right? So I adjusted my schedule and got my sunscreen ready, and as you will all be thrilled to see… my bathing suit!
Here is a little peek into the behind the scenes of what goes on Read More

six years ago today

 

There is something about an anniversary ┬áthat sometimes overshadows everything. Maybe it’s the fact that you know it’s coming, and that you think you are supposed to feel one way or another- depending on if it’a happy or sad anniversary. Dodie and I talk about this a lot and both get a little irritated about the pressure that surrounds the ‘anniversary.’
At exactly 1:30 p.m. today it will be six years that my Mom died. And like every year, I have been dreading this week. But then I got really busy with work and despite trying not to Read More

the measure of my success

Today marks a milestone for me as a business owner and person and I just wanted to share. Ever since I had anyone working with me, even when it was just me and Dodie at weddings way back in the day- all I wanted to do was be able to help out those who were helping me.
Let me flash back here for a sec. Growing up I always thought I had less than most, and the reality is I did. As an adult I can honestly say that I was not really looking at the world that I lived Read More

my very own surprise ct backyard vow renewal

As a recap to this year of 2011, I can’t think of a better event to close with and start 2012 with then our very own vow renewal in our very own back yard!! Here’s how it came about…
I have been thinking long and hard about doing a video on the studio, to show what we are all about without being too melodramatic or taking ourselves too seriously whilst straddling that very fine line of not being too unprofessional in the process! It’s a thin, badly drawn line at times for us photographers and we have all been known Read More

the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me

Today would be my Mom’s 65th birthday. She loved birthdays while we were little and always put so much effort into our cakes and our backyard parties! I am filled with such great birthday memories, thanks to her! So in honor of my Mom, who was the champion of the underdog like crazy… and who also loved an unsung good deed, I am going to out one of my favorite people and let her know that she has done the most kind thing for me in my whole life. Ever.
To prep: I am not going to totally out Read More

full circle

It’s after 11 p.m. and after a full day of teaching a workshop, video chatting with prospective clients, and editing, I am still sitting here. I missed dinner! … but more importantly I missed bed time. I sat here and worked. What the hell is wrong with me? This month has been flat out bat shit crazy for me, yes. Before you judge my workaholic ways too harshly…to be fair, I have cut back on frenzied work schedules these past few years and made room for some major C10 family time. We have taken many a vacation and Read More

RIP blankie aug 2004 – aug 2011

Last week we lost blankie while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. It seems so… permanent. She is gone forever. I am so devastated. See, I bought blankie for my little girl Georgie before she was born. This blankie was a bit of a place holder at that point. See, in my eyes I thought she would be temporary until I could make her a blankie myself. You know, with all of my free time being a new mom to my second child.
What I didn’t realize then was that there wouldn’t come a time for me to make that blankie Read More
