Portrait: Leslie Cerier-The Organic Gourmet at Esalen

This Spring, I had the pleasure of working with Leslie Cerier , an organic chef and author for an article in Organic Spa Magazine, and as the result of that article I was invited to photograph her at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur CA. If you have ever been to Big Sur or Esalen you know how stunning the landscape is...         One of the pleasures we had was eating straight from the garden to the table ...When you have a world class vegetarian chef teaching, what else do you need? undefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

Senior Portrait:Emily

When I found out Emily was interested in Acting and Music, my first thought was instantly The Academy of Music for a location! I was very excited at the idea and after some emails and phone calls, I was graciously allowed access to photograph Emily in the theatre. So we met up at the Academy to start our portrait session but and then ended up in the beautiful orchard at Outlook Farm... The sunshine really brought out Emily's wonderful spirit. It was such a delight to photograph her and I think I was able to capture the many sides of her bright personality! Special Thanks go out to the Academy of Music in Northampton Ma.!


We just had to Photograph out doors as well... Who doesn't love a beautiful day!

Senior Portrait: Xernay

Late August and early September still elicits back to school memories,cool nights, new clothes, apples and pumkins... and now senior portraits! I had the pleasure of working  with Xernay previously as she modeled for me on a shoot for Sharon London back in the early winter so I was excited to work with her again. We decided to hit the road so to  speak and shoot locally here in Northampton MA. We ended up all over, from corn fields to the Smith campus...and had a lot of fun as a result. Here are a few from our outing...

A few from another day.... The sun was so beautiful just had to grab a few more...

child portrait: Isabelle

I think I fall in love each and every time I photograph a child, especially one as sweet as Isabelle. Way beyond her 4 years...Isabelle was so good and very patient with this photographer! But what little girl doesn't like dressing up and being a fairy? Especially in the Catskill mountains! I have been wanting to stylize some of the portraits I have been shooting and Isabelle was a good subject to try some different effects with....I also had fun using some props in the mix too!
