Winter Wonderland

I am just wrapping up what has become my favorite winter ritual. For the last few years I've spent the quietest week of the year on Martha's Vineyard when the population has dwindle to just the year-round folk and the schools are on winter break. Without fail there was a little bit of the white stuff (a few pics from my drive up last Friday are below), but the following days were mild enough for some long long walks through the abundant network of trails and on the beach. I love the beach in the winter, it is so amazing!

The Love Child Has Arrived!

My new and soon to be named niece arrived at 12:29 this morning just missing her Valentine's Day due date. Vaness & Zack (the proud mama, my sis, & papa) were doing well after 16 hours of painkiller-free labor and a water birth in their Evanston, IL home! The little bundle weighed in at just over 7lbs and measures 22 inches long. In the completely unbiased opinion of her parents she is quite a looker! Can't wait to go visit the new wonderous one and take some pics!

Edgartown School 8th Grade Auction

Congratulations to Lil & Rick, the highest bidders on the portrait session I donated to the Edgartown School's Class of 2008 Auction to raise money for their trip to DC! Have fun guys!

Mystic or Bust!

I hit the road with fellow NY photographers Jason Groupp, Jennifer Davis, Jordan Van Aken, Rob Munroe, John Schafer and Punam Bean for a model shoot in downtown Mystic (brrrrrr) and Walter Van Dusen's awesome Mystic 3 photo workshop.

These girls rock, I asked Rae to run up the dock and she kicks off her shoes! I'm embarrassed to say I can't even count the number of layers I had on. I'm still debating whether or not to post an incriminating photo of me drinking hot chocolate on our break.

Tracy & CJ 1.19.08

I'm loving the winter wedding! Click here to see the slideshow. Thanks again to Jordan Van Aken for taking some more killer shots!

JLo in the house! I was wondering why there were so many people hanging around the hotel, did they all know about the stunning bride getting ready upstairs? Turns out JLo was having her baby shower at the Gramercy Park Hotel where the girls were getting ready. Needless to say one of our diligent look outs spotted her and hubby Marc Anthony making their entrance. Gotta love New York!

Tracy & CJ had a lovely ceremony at The Church of Our Saviour

Next stop the Westside Loft.

The paparazzi never looked so good.

The happiest camper :-)

Hyde Yoga Spring 2008

I started off the year with a trip up to Boston to shoot for Hyde Yoga's spring look book. Thanks to all our lovely models for making the shoot so much fun! And an extra special thanks to Taryn Toomey for scouting, modeling, doing make-up, hosting us, making dinner....

Master T on Acorn Street

Just for fun we convinced AK, Hyde's owner, to jump in with the North End Yoga girls, Taryn, Alessandra, Jasmine and Alicia.

Here we go!!!

I did make a New Year's resolution to blog regularly and it seems I have already fallen behind! I am awaiting some blog renovations, but in the meantime I will catch you all up on the beginning of what looks to be an exciting year. Thanks to Ilan and Jen for keeping me on task!
