tonight i'm going to see and spend time with this girl:

as she'll be flying up north for another friend's wedding.

i'm super excited, as she is one of the best. :) we look like we could be sisters and that is what i choose to believe we are. it'll be too short like always, but any time with good friends is always treasured.


before this year, i've never really enjoyed fall.

see, i hate being cold. HATE. ;) growing up in the chilly northeast, fall just seems like the beginning of winter that will never end. even though the changing leaves are pretty, all too soon they fall off and leave everything stark and brown.

this is still a true statement. :D but in photographing families and individuals this season after two years in the pacific northwest (which is also beautiful, but without much of the dramatic season change that new york has), i was struck with a (dare i say) love for all that the season has to offer. and although i've been cold almost 24/7 since the end of september, :), somehow i just put on a pair of socks or a scarf and survive.

a few weeks back, i shot laurie and omari, who have known each other and been together a ridiculously long time. i think they told me that they met in 1986!?! crazy. anyhow, they're absolutely amazing and beautiful people, inside and out. we wandered around the union college campus and caught some of the fall colors behind them for new family photos. it was a great day.

besides being awesome in general, these guys have a really random, quirky sense of humor which i definitely appreciate. :) here they are with another member of their family... the king. HA.

this past weekend, i watched my sister's best friend marry the love of her life. i was so honored to be a part of the wedding as a bridesmaid, but of course i couldn't help snapping a few photos when i wasn't on bridesmaid duty. :) many congrats to leah and joe as they begin their new family together- currently they're honeymooning in florida and i'm sure the weather has got to be better than the 30's and 40's we're experiencing in new york! brrr :)

because i can not help myself

it is so late here


i have had the privilege of shooting so many beautiful people lately.

here's the littlest one (for now, shooting a 6-pound newborn on wednesday), wrapped in his mother's scarf:

more to come soon. wedding, family, and personal photos. very very soon. :)

three is enough.

today i remembered i hadn't yet updated from this weekend's three shoots. yeah i've been a bit busy this week. :) having my life in so much constant transition makes for a lot of packing and unpacking again, and to be honest i've just been procrastinating. nothing like expected houseguests to motivate me to get crackin'! :) it's been a good week so far but between the day job and cleaning/unpacking/and sorting through stuff, i've had little time to think about the norm.

however. this past weekend was so! busy with three photoshoots: a brother/sister, a boyfriend/girlfriend, and a local band. i've decided that from now on 2 is probably my limit per weekend- whew, was i tired on sunday night! but it was a blast and a lot of the shots came out really well. here are some of my fav's:

sure, this is a little nature-y and cliche, but i could not get over how beautiful this butterfly was! it flew up to me as i was sitting on a bench in the sunshine, waiting to begin a shoot.

unfortunately, the brother-sister shoot was done in preparation for a christmas surprise... so no posting those where they can be seen! maybe after the holidays. :)
