Baby Beulah's first Portraits!

This weekend I visited my old friend (from elementary school!) Sarah and her partner Michael. She has just had a baby (home birth!) and her parents were visiting… this baby is SO cute, she looks just like Sarah to me… it blows my mind that my best friend from 3rd and 4th grade is a mama… here are a handful of favorites.

When Beulah is cranky she loves to be bounced gently on this ball… adorable.

Bachelorette Party: The Lindsay Benefit!

One of my June brides for 2009 had a lingerie ‘n’ panties gifting the likes of which i’ve never seen. The food and beverages were AMAZING and it was all vegetarian… heavenly cooking by Lindsay’s friends, the hostesses. And what a fun group of women to spend an evening with, ladies night is always great but this far surpassed the usual. Thanks for having me shoot, Lindsay! Here’s a sneak peek at my favorite images…

The man at the liquor store warned them he only carried FANCY triple sec… suitable for sipping straight. And it was!

Amy Goodman at The New School, April 4th, 2009

My fiance, Keith and I had the opportunity to go see Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now on Pacifica Radio and co-author of the newly published book Standing Up To The Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times, speak at the New School on Saturday morning. Keith is a teacher and rare indeed is the weekend when we roll out of the house before 11am… (unless I am shooting a wedding of course).. but this was SO worth it! She has got to be the most skilled and articulate speaker I’ve seen in years… just went ON and on with hardly a pause or a break, and it seemed mostly extemporaneously poring out of her, just making connections between one story and another, tying things to current and historical events, etc. This woman is one of our most valuable journalists, and we are so glad to have seen her. I made this grid-set of the photos to best illustrate her talk.amygoodmanspeaks

Francesca’s Headshot

On Sunday I shot Francesca’s headshots- it was such a beautiful day I really got to enjoy walking around outside the studio with her. Kudos to our makeup artist, Jessica, on a beautiful job, too! Here were a few favorites, nothing is retouched yet. So warm out she could wear her tank top and everything…
