My Little Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I recently photographed some hats for Sweet Penelope Knitts on my son for the launch of their new boys hat collection, SPK.  It has been snowing and just awful out, and I love trying new things…  so you’ll notice this is a different look for me – indoors!  I really have to say, I loved it and hope to be doing more soon.  I daydream of a studio someday, and while I know it’s a huge undertaking it will be a reality in the future.  If anyone knows of a nice space in lower/mid Westchester or Greenwich with natural light, please let me know.  It doesn’t have to be big!  Doesn’t hurt to put that out there, right?  ;)  I’ve been looking forever!

So here is my little guy, who isn’t so little anymore.  I figured since it was Valentine’s Day it would be the perfect time to show the sweet boy who has my heart…

A Finished Project
"the big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure." -joseph campbell

Completing this new site was a bit of an adventure!  After a lot of time, thought, back and forth collaborations, and even a random hacker attacking my site during the middle of our job…  I am finally able to present my new website to you.   I hadn’t worked on my site since the beginning of 2009, when I officially started this business, so it was a big deal!  I’ve grown so much in 4 years, in my work and as a business, and I really wanted my site to reflect who I’ve become.

A big thanks to Ryan at Second Street Creative for understanding how my mind works even when I had trouble getting it into words.  (According to my husband, that happens a lot…)  It was so cool to work with someone who got me and I can’t recommend his work enough.

So please, take a look around!  You’ll see that now I have one site – blog, portfolio, information…  all in one neat package.  Pretty new colors for my branding (everything was inspired by the beach and sea glass) and an evolution of my logo.   Bright and clean so the images would be the focus.  (No pun intended, ha.)  Last thing, I promise I will blog more.  It’s on the calendar already.  Now that I have such a pretty place to call home, how could I not?

In the meantime…  a few images from a recent session.  It’s a photography blog after all…

This is the second time I’ve photographed this beautiful Rye family.  They are wonderfully laid back and sweet and it’s such a pleasure working with them.  We had our hands fantastically full with three kids under three and a half, it was a great Saturday morning!

One last thing!  A huge thank you to my good friend, the extremely talented Stephanie Piscitelli of Bellini Portraits for taking my long overdue profile picture for this site.  She is amazingly talented and if you are in the Boston area, give her a call – she is incredible!
