Beauty shot

September 28, 2012

I photographed the most gorgeous actress, Aubin Wise, for the cover of Panorama’s beauty issue out now.  Aubin is staring in the Broadway musical Ragtime, opening in Boston today! She was the absolute best to work with.  Her face is stunning and she was so easy going and sweet.  I love working with great people!

Have a great weekend!

Three years ago today!

September 26, 2012

Happy anniversary to the most wonderful man in the world .  Three years ago today we were married in a little church on St. Simons Island and proceeded to the best party of my life on Sea Island right on the water.  (Which reminds me…I still need to do our wedding album.  Eek.)

Here is an old post about our big day.

DeCrodova Sculpture Park

September 25, 2012

I am preparing for a fashion photo shoot at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum scheduled to shoot in a week, so last week I popped out to do a little location scouting  The museum and grounds are so wonderful, a hidden gem just in the suburbs of Boston.  I am beyond excited to photograph there!!!!  Here are a few sculpture that caught my eye, but I can’t share them all.  You will have to wait for the final product.

 

My feature on The Everygirl a few months ago has been one of the highlights of my professional life this year, so I was thrilled when they called me and asked me to photograph Sarah Cunningham of Walker-Cunningham Fine Art.  Sarah Cunningham was as sincere and lovely as you would expect (The Everygirl editors have great taste if I do say so myself :) and her gallery space if a beautiful little treasure tucked away on the 2nd floor of busy Newbury Street.  The feature on The Everygirl is here, but here are a few teasers from the piece.

Rue La La

September 20, 2012

My studio has been in the Fort Point Channel neighborhood for about two years now and the headquarters for the on line private sale company Rue La La has been in the neighborhood for over three years, so I was thrilled when on Monday they gave us a tour of their fabulous warehouse space.  The photo studio floor alone (yes I said FLOOR!) is enough to have me hyperventilating, but the shoe wall, inspiration boards and open plan make it one super inspiring work environment.  Oh…I didn’t even mention the giant candy machines filled with Rue La La branded M & M’s and gumballs.  Thank you so much to Tess and Veronica and the Rue La La team for giving us a tour.  What a fun place it must be to work.

Weekend Update

September 17, 2012

I have a cold, baby has a cold, and although we had a great weekend, we have the Monday morning yucks!  I’ll have a better post tomorrow., but for now, here are s few iPhone morsels from our weekend.  One the upside the weather in Boston is absolutely beautiful.  Not too hot, not too cold with a little crisp in the air…the prefect fall weather.

Bloody Marys with the Melissa and Doug crab.

And the most gorgeous weather.

P.S. One the iPhone side…iPhone 5 comes out next week!  Yay!  My contract is up and I am totally getting one.  The question now is do I switch from AT&T to Verizion or Sprint.  I am not at all impressed with my AT&T service, but just how much better is Verizion or Sprint…can any Boston people give me their feedback?  Thanks.

Backstage

September 14, 2012

The backstage at the Tibi fashion show was exactly as you might imagine the back stage at a fashion show to be. Crazy, fun, glamorous. PR girls running with head sets strapped to their body, models young enough to be in high school sitting quietly playing on their iPhones as hair stylist, make-up artists and photographers buzz around them and the fashion camera crews filming clips and segways for various, podcasts, blogs, TV stations etc.. Although the backstage space at this season’s Tibi show was enormous, an entire separate floor in a Chelsea warehouse, so the buzz didn’t seem as frantic…well except for the fact there were tornado warnings during pre-show.

Front Row at a Fashion Show

September 12, 2012

Last weekend I packed up my camera gear, kissed bébé goodbye for my first night away and hopped a train to New York. I was a ball of nervous energy, excitement and sheer joy. I absolutely eat up all the Fashion Week hullabaloo with a sterling silver spoon. (P.S. have never used the word hullabaloo before but it is stuck in my head…seems appropriate.)

Anyway, I got to photograph backstage at the Tibi fashion show and then sat front row! As a seat filler of course. I kind of love being this low key, nobody, snapping away among the flurry of models, make-up artist, socialites and self-important fashion reporters. I find it fascinating. And as an unapologetic fan of fashion shows and Tibi clothing in particular, I love seeing what designer Amy Smilovic has in store for next season. Let me tell you, it is black and white, minimal, sleek and very wearable. It’s Céline meets 90′s Calvin Klein, but at a much more feasible price point.

Front of the House

Although my seat was front row, it didn’t really lend itself to a great camera angle of the clothes…those girls walk FAST and my shutter speed could barely keep up with them. For the full show look-by-look go to Style.com. but for some shots from my point of view, see below. Plus my seat mate, the designer’s darling 10 year old son made for some fun conversation. At one point he leans over, looking at the screen on my camera and goes, “its at 2.8 (referring to my aperture setting), that is good.” What?!?!?! You rock kid!

Next: all the back stage action.

So I am heading to New York tomorrow for a quick little taste and some photographing of fashion week. I know I should be all blasé about going to fashion week, but inside I am about as cool as a pre-teen, hopped up on pixie sticks about to meet One Direction. I love this shit! (pardon the French) This will also be the first night I am away from bébé and I am equal parts scared and excited…well lets be honest…I am a little more on the excited side. Arrivederci!

Here are some of my pics from last September’s Fashion Week. I cannot wait to share this season’s with you. Wish me luck! Yeeeeeeee!

P.S. I totally this yellow dress on sample sale at the Tibi Outlet in August!

See you soon New York!

Portland Flea-for-all

September 5, 2012

Last weekend I was up in Maine visiting my sister and she has been dying to take me to the Portland Flea-for-All.  It is a three story, flea market type space run by a darling husband wife team.  The first floor is open to vendors who have everything from vintage clothing and housewares to new, hand made arts.  Kind of like Boston’s SoWa Market but all under one roof.  The top two floors are antique and vintage furniture collected by the owners.  It was a great little antiquing fix seeing as I will not be able to make it to Brimfield this year, and the prices are still great.  (I feel like vintage/antique/Brimfield prices have really inflated in the past couple of years.)  If you find yourself in the Portland area one weekend it is a great rainy day activity.

Here it is later that afternoon as we were styling it.

I went home with the cute kitten heals from Proper Vintage.

Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend and are getting back into the work swing of things.  Good bye summer.  Until next year.
