Panorama from Brooklyn…

I got the chance to shoot this panorama (it’s actually a bunch of shots stitched together!) from a client’s balcony in Brooklyn. Ovi and Joana are packing up and leaving behind their great apartment and financial jobs to go on a backpacking trip around the world! This newlywed couple wanted some shots of themselves hanging out in their sweet digs so they can always remember their life together here in good old NYC… I actually bartered the shoot for Joana’s practically brand new beautiful womens city-cruiser bicycle with a comfy seat– they’re trying to get rid of basically everything they own, can you imagine?! What a beauty it is too. It’s even light enough to carry up and down my stairs. Now if i can just get my photo backpack light enough to ride back and forth from the studio…blogsizesunsetpano

Quite a view! Did they live there at the time of 9/11? That would have been especially surreal and alarming.

Kathy's Maternity Portraits

Kathy came in with her husband for maternity portraits, she’s due in about a month– I *may* even get to shoot her home birth if it doesn’t conflict with another birth I have coming up!  Yay, home births!  Check out some of my favorites below.  All images are shown here with my clients’ permission of course.

Brendan’s Bar Mitzvah

Last Saturday I shot a Bar Mitzvah for a great kid named Brendan. Everyone had a wonderful time, there was even skeeball! The family hosted a luncheon with dancing at the Central Park Boathouse following services at Steven Wise Free Synagogue. I loved the clever table sculptures of NYC landmarks built entirely out of metrocards!075brendanbarmitzvah

That looks like it was a wonderful event! I didn’t know there was a facility at the CP Boathouse for rent, and it looks like everyone had a good time.
