costa rica day one scouting

After returning from my family vacation in Mexico I unpacked and repacked to head out to a dream destination of mine- Herradura Costa Rica. Now I have been to Costa Rica before for a vacation and I loved it, all of it- from the scary crazy zip lines to the laid back and friendly nature of pretty much everybody in the country. It was beyond amazing. So to go back for a photo shoot was something that I didn’t even know was a dream for me until I was smack in the middle of it!
So like our New Orleans Read More

be careful what you wish for…

I like to travel, I am not gonna lie. But I will be honest with you, I do not want to be a destination wedding photographer, and I am not ashamed to admit it! I love my third smallest state in the union here- CONNECTICUT!!!! like no other. With its crappy weather (right now anyway) and super small town appeal, I am in heaven every time I come home.
However.
These next two months are going to be some of the craziest months- actually I am smack in the middle of crazy right now- but I ask you not Read More

Collaborate and Create 2010

This May 16-19 my good friend and very talented Event Planner Candice Dowling-Coppola of Jubilee Events and I will be teaming up to present: Collaborate and Create 2010– a photography and design event!!
To say I am excited is the understatement of the year!! Candice and I have been working together on editorial shoots pretty much every month this past year – in Connecticut to New Orleans and beyond and have some crazy ones in the planning stages that we can’t wait to share with everyone.

We get asked a lot how we put together Read More

Inspire Boston 2010

This last week was the whirlwind to start the whirlwind of all whirlwinds for me… and the butterflies are still in my belly to prove it! So, to give you a little back ground: I was a part of one of the BEST photo retreats / conferences / seminars I have ever been a part of! BIG thanks to Matt and Enna Grazier for dreaming this up and then finding the means to make it happen!!
Inspire Boston 2010 was amazing. It was beyond amazing, to be perfectly honest. There were so many photographers new to the business and so Read More

the dead mom’s club, four years later

Today marks four years since my Mom, Georgie Hernandez, died peacefully surrounded by her family. You want to know what one of her pet peeves was? She used to HATE when she would read the obituaries and that is all it would say! Even knowing that she was dying, she and I would read them, and she would get all heated and wonder aloud why people didn’t just say how they died. ‘so-and-so fell down the stairs, or it was a car accident or had cancer or COPD or whatever’.
They always left you thinking about the how and not Read More

It’s Grammy’s turn to buuuuurn in the fire here with our next installment of Celebrity Stunt Double!
Graham = Curt from Glee, minus the awesome singing and dancing skills, though I’d wager Graham just may do a great rendition of ‘Single Ladies’…. maybe he will show us when he comes to the studio later!

INSPIRE Boston 2010 Photography conference

One of my goals for 2010 was to put myself out there more for teaching purposes- see what else I could tackle in addition to the monthly Ten Eyck Tuesdays.

The best part?
