I had a PUG ( pictage user group, or us photo geeks) meeting in New York and of course I had to get a couple of shots off. I always bring my camera everywhere I go. I love The Chrysler Building, it is by far my favorite building in the world. Yes, even better than The Eiffel Tower. I met a real nice group of New York Photographers and I learned a lot about shooting in the city.
We were fortunate enough to photograph another young lady at The Inn at Longshore. Jennifer and her family and friends had a fantastic time.
I had the great pleasure to meet and photograph a real great kid and his wonderful family. Jake is a football player with many friends. I was really touched by the slide show presentation. It was a real cool mix of stills with awesome football video footage. John Muro from AP Video did a fantastic job. I have worked with John many times over the past 20 years, I feel like we are a team. The ceremony was at temple Israel as well as the luncheon where instead of lighting candles, Jake placed puzzle pieces together to form a large photograph of him in a cool Wreckers Football Jersey. After the luncheon there was a kids party at Stage 18 where the kids partied while the snow fell, and fell, and kept falling until we received 10 inches of snow. It was a day I will never forget, and I am sure Jake won’t either.
I photographed Aimee and Pete’s Wedding 5 years ago and now they have an adorable little guy named Will. I always try to keep in touch with brides and grooms as much as I can. As the family gets bigger I love to get pictures of them. Compo Beach is one of my favorite spots to photograph but if the colors are nice I use a park down the street or sometimes as in this case, my backyard.
I have finally made the leap into blogging! My first blog has to be the introduction of my wonderful family who are my very best supporters. Elizabeth my lovely wife of 12 years and my four adorable kids. Case, Elle, Sinjin and Penn. Penn just started walking after 16 months of training. We decided to go for a stroll through one of our most favorite places. The Westport Nature Center. I have in the past photographed families here and it offers wonderful backdrops.
