So, this fall…just a few short months ago, I nervously made the decision to move studio spaces. I’ve been happily ensconced in the Garner Arts Center for the past several years. It is a beautiful, and incredibly historic, old arts & industrial complex in northern Rockland County, NY. But, for a while, I had known […]

Last year (or maybe the year before), around this time, I believe I posted about ways in which we can actually display our summer or vacation photos. Oh wait, that post is HERE! I maintain for forever and ever that we should always be printing our photos or making them visible in some fashion. Otherwise, […]

When Lisa contacted me to photograph her family, I was excited at the prospect of photographing not just her and her boys, but also her parents with them. My kids’ grandparents live on the other side of the country, so any time I get the chance to include grandparents in a family session, it makes […]
