The website for Flock Boston boutique launched today. I did the photography for the site a few weeks ago and through the vision and artistry of JS Graphic Design the site is complete! I love how they incorporated the photo corner and inspiration board type feel for the whole site. The shop, owned and operated by the lovely Danielle Kupsc, has a beautiful, earthy, artistic feel that I tried to capture and reflect in the photography. I think the website did a great job of creating a virtual home for this darling shop. If you live in the Boston area you have to pop in a see it for yourself…oh and be prepared to want everything in it!
Home Page – I just love the parchment paper and wood grain background. Oh and the photo corners, the photo corners!!!!! Love them!
More of my favorites form the shoot.

I had a wonderful photo session the other day with this angel and I just had to share her adorableness. Seriously, my ovaries still hurt.
Thanks to her mom and dad for allowing me to post these.

The other day I passed this new flower shop right on Charles Street in Beacon Hill. The flowers they had displayed outside were amazing and stopped me in my tracks. I have no idea what type of flower these beautiful and strange yellow/orange fuzzy things are but they remind of the brush I used in high school chemistry class to clean out the test tubes. Very cool. Wouldn’t they make for an amazing Thanksgiving arrangement?
This lovely flower shop’s is Twig. They have a location in the South End, Back Bay and now Beacon Hill. I plan on going down there tomorrow to pick up something fun for our table. We are having a mini Thanksgiving on Friday since we will be in Spain over Thanksgiving…I can’t wait for that.

For my birthday my parents gave me a very lovely check which I immediately took to Calumet Photographics. I would go to their Chicago store when I was in graduate school all the time and was psyched to see they had a store in Cambridge, MA, so I hopped in Lady Liberty and headed over the Longfellow bridge over to Cambridge.
I have been using the Cannon Zoom 24-105mm f/4L IS USM for about 4 years now and have found it extremely versatile, especially for construction photography needing a wide range or zoom options, but I was ready to expand. I was looking for a lens that would allow me to create more macro shots and would allow me to play more with dimension, and went into Calumet ready to play and try out some lenses. I won’t bore you with too many unneeded details but I got overwhelmed fast and a very kind fellow customer started chatting with me and recommended I try a 60mm f/2.8 Macro or a 35mm f/2. I loved them both! I could adjust focus on object mere inches away from one another. I decided to take both! A very happy birthday to me indeed!
As I was leaving I asked this kind customer for his business card, so I could check out some of his work. (Not to judge a book by its cover but from the looks of his camera equipment, this guy knew what he was doing, and I wanted to see what he was creating with it all) I looked down at the business card and my eyes popped…a photojournalist for The Boston Globe!
I rushed home to look at his website, Essdras M. Suarez, and found the most beautiful and inspirational photographs. I don’t want to infringe on any copyrite issues by posting images on my blog, but you must go to his website and see for yourself. The breadth and range of his work is astounding. There is also a great slideshow of his work on The Boston Globe site. His travel photos are of course my favorite. He seems to be able to effortlessly combine the most amazing light and composition.
Nothing special but having fun playing with my new lenses

Student work for sure, but so exciting to feel like a student again.

My dive buddy and brother always acts as a great model for me underwater. Here are some fun shots from a live aboard trip we took sailing for a week around the in the Bimini Islands in the Bahamas.

I have been SCUBA diving since the age of 15, but only in the last 3 years have a ventured to bring my camera down with me. I try not to use a strobe as I like my photographs to reflect what my naked eye saw. Adding a strobe often changes the color dramatically from what you see without the extra light. Here are some of my favorites.
