Out in the crowd

March 6, 2013

I am not a very good “crowd person.”  If I see hordes of people walking one way, I tend to be running 180˚ in the other direction.  My husband agrees, I belong to a more Downton Abby civilized approach to life…well the life of Lady Mary of course.  Despite my aversion to crowds there is something I love about the photography of Massimo Vitali.  A long time favorite of interior designers and coastal homes, his beach photographs often show hundreds of people on a crowded beach (my worst nightmare), but some how make is seem exciting and vibrant.  Maybe it is the 10,000 ft approach to the subjects or the saturated colors, but his work is exciting and peaceful at the same time.  This past weekend as I sat down to my long, lovely breakfast during our Berkshire get away, I was so excited to see a feature by Vitalli on Brazil in the NYTmes Magazine…well that and the fact that I had the time to actually sit down and read the Sunday paper.  What a luxury.  Here are some images from the feature.  He really can see pattern and beauty in almost any place, from beach to flavela.

Art and fashion

November 2, 2012

I am so excited I can finally share this photo shoot with you all.  A few weeks ago I photographed some amazing fall fashions for Louis at the DeCorvoda Sculpture Park and Museum.  This was a dream come true photo shoot for me, combining my love of art history, fashion and photography.  It was a great day of shooting, despite the fact that it rain during the entire day long shoot.  I actually think it made for some moodier shots.

Feelings of Fall

October 15, 2012

Here are some out takes from a photo shoot I had last week at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.  If you live in the Boston area get your butt over to this place pronto!  It is magical, even on a rainy day like the day we had.  Now back to editing the actual shoot.

 

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.
