My West Coast friends

My West Coast friends came to visit recently and what better time to have an informal portrait session as they have never had a family photo together. The Japanese Gardens at Roger Williams Park in Providence, RI served as the nearest location for this gathering. Always a good time to be had as I haven’t seen them in over 10 years and got to meet the not-so little ones.  I was very happy to spend some time and glad they could fit this in on their busy vacation to the East.

In the Forest



Last autumn I had a chance to work with Missy, a great model and equally great artist, in the nearby forest creating a few flowing images.

Wedding day – Luke and Erica


, , ,

A quick year has passed by from an engagement shoot with Luke and Erica ( to their recent wedding day. The wedding at Elm Hill Farm in Brookfield, Massachusetts. A classic 1870 New England estate, was a perfect setting on this hot summer’s day.  Here’s a few highlights from their occasion. Congratulations to them!luke erica-3

Morning walks in the forest

Morning walks and meditation to start the day, whenever time allows, calms my thoughts and renews my creativity.  Easier said some days than others.  The sights, scents, and sounds that surround me in these moments of being connected with them are truly a gift that is often overlooked in our busy lives.  Take the time to find a trail off the beaten asphalt path and feel the earth beneath your feet.
