Manhattan Maternity

Manhattan Maternity Session.
I had the pleasure of photographing Giselle and AJ’s wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico a couple of years ago and now I’m delighted to be photographing their maternity session! Film is my preferred photography medium and it was so great to be able to use it for this shoot. Giselle and AJ have a beautiful apartment with large south east facing windows, so there was a ton of light.
Congrats to the lovely couple on their expecting their first, a baby girl! I photographed Giselle and AJ’s wedding in Los Cabos a couple of years ago, and now, their growing family!
There was such pretty light emanating from the bedroom windows on this cold and windy November day. The pictures were shot on Kodak film with medium format cameras.

Driving up to Mont Tremblant

These photos were actually from a trip we took in March after Quebec was hit with 5 consecutive snowstorms! However, since we just got back last weekend from Mont Tremblant, again, I was dying to feature Chandler's completed Time Lapse. His time lapse was a series of photos shot every 20 seconds, from a camera rigged in the car for our long distance drive.

Here is the time lapse, beautifully edited, at the end of this post.

Blue Hill Stone Barns Wedding on Style Me Pretty


That’s all that I can mutter through blue frozen lips.
And this too: Estie Colis!! Qu’il fait froid!

We just returned from Montreal and from snowy Mont Tremblant where Chandler, Cousin Nathan and I went cross-country skiing on Sunday.
The views of snow-capped pines from the trails were beautiful, and of course I have so much nostalgia for Canada when I go back up to the Laurentians to ski.

It was literally 1 degree Fahrenheit (-17 Celsius) on the car thermometer when we headed back to NY last night. No joke.
No wonder so many of my childhood winter memories are of me in snow suits.
Needless to say, I was truly happy last night to get back to my overheated NYC apt!

Coincidentally, it was a pleasant surprise to see one of my favourite winter weddings featured on the awesome wedding blog: Style Me Pretty. Jill and Eric’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns wedding took place last December up in Tarrytown, NY. What a gorgeous spot all year round.
Please feel free to take a look at the post when you can.

Thanks SMP!



(Post) Apple Picking Season


Chandler and I were late to the game…Yeah, we reached the Upstate NY apple orchard in early November, but we still managed to have a great time despite the low quantity of of apples and the high quantity of mud we got his car stuck into.
Thank goodness for rope (and Chandler's knotting abilities : )
More photos from this great adventure to come..

(We're off to Montreal in the morning to visit my folks)…



We managed to pat some cute ponies and spot an old abandoned pickup truck; I was able to bake an apple crisp from the 6 crispy apples I found on the grass. Not too shabby!
