The rainbow of the fall

It’s not often that I get a chance to do a senior session, but this last week I had an opportunity to work with Ben, on perhaps the most beautiful day of the fall. Good luck in your Senior year, Ben!

Food!

We had so much fun at this session yesterday. Metrocurean creator Amanda McClements needed a batch of fresh new images for the relaunch of her blog. When she approached me about the job, I was so excited to work such a beautiful person, who is totally into food and entertaining. When I arrived, she had great produce to inspire us, beautiful linens, and a…

Musings From the Roof

This weekend I did a maternity shoot, a 5 hour fashion extravaganza shoot (complete with makeup and wardrobe makeovers), a mini session with 18 month olds, and this rooftop shoot with two great models and fellow shooter, my dad. I would like to say that all the work brought out the best in me, but at the end of the last day, having hauled…

Yard ‘O Yogi’s

And we’re off…Yesterday I continued on the project of profiling each of the Past Tense employees. Again, Irina lent us her time and incredible makeup artistry, and the studio assistants of Past Tense came over for a fun shoot. They got all bendy and strong in the right here on our property, and generally rocked this shoot… Sarah Laura Pohl – photographer and videographer…

Rooftop Madness

So, if you have been following me on Facebook, you know I was seeking a rooftop for a shoot. We found an ideal spot for last night, thanks to you know who (we sort of snuck up there and then snuck over a guardrail, so i’ll keep my accomplice anonymous).We were looking for an unobstructed view of the sky, and got somewhat close. However,…

A Different Twist on the Cherry Blossoms

Caitlin asked me to take some personal senior year photographs for her, as opposed to what she had gotten done for her yearbook. I leaped at the opportunity, as seniors are so self-assured, have a personal vision, and are pretty well across the board excited to be in front of the camera. Caitlin was super easy to work with, and the camera loved her….

Candy Colored Houses and Jolly Rancher Eyes

I had the great joy of working with Daily Candy Editor Erin Hartigan this morning for a fun photoshoot. In addition to the first three notes of every good song produced in the 1970’s, a list of shoot locations always floats around in my head. For this beautiful spring days shoot, a nearby wonderful street loaded with endless colorful rowhouses seemed like the perfect…

Fantastic models, old warehouse, legendary teacher….

What else can you ask for? On Friday I headed up to the Dobbs Ferry workshop, held north of NYC by the legendary shooter Joe McNally. In addition to 30 years of shooting for publications from National Geographic to Sports Illustrated, Joe also conceived of and shot the Faces of Ground Zero. Only Joe could come up with the idea to use the largest…

Lilly Is Fighting for Us! Equal Pay Act Passes Senate

Okay, I am well behind on this blog….this week has been just full of shoots and opportunities that I think are incredibly cool and I really want to share them all. But, see, shoots and opportunities don’t leave a whole lot of time in front of the computer…especially when one included 9 hours of driving in a 24 hour period with an opportunity sandwiched…
