It’s easy loving Amsterdam

One morning, a few months ago, John and I had a quick conversation about how to  celebrate his 50th birthday and he briefly mentioned going to Amsterdam. I jumped all over the idea and had our airfares purchased a few days later.

Amsterdam is a place we’ve enjoyed together many times, this was John’s seventh visit and my ninth. The last time we were there was to celebrate his 40th birthday. It was fun to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. Here are a few of the things we love about Amsterdam.

A Spooky Good Time!

Nolan’s mid-October Bar Mitzvah at the Pine Brook Country Club had a macabre yet elegant theme. Black crows sat outside their cages, mysterious monkeys wearing fezzes held up lampshades and skeleton candles glowed. Nolan himself was a vision in white while all the other guests were in formal black attire. The night was a spookily huge success!22013 10 12  201 72dpi

How you can help your photo session succeed

Allison was an ideal photo subject and not just because she’s beautiful, she prepared for the session. Here are a few things that you, as the subject, can do to help your photo shoot succeed; prepare outfits, try them on, make sure they fit and flatter. The more outfits you have to select from at the photo shoot the better. Have the proper accessories. Get plenty of sleep the night before your session. Have your hair and make-up done by a professional.

Martha’s Vineyard Wedding

Martha’s Vineyard is one of my favorite places on earth so I’m always excited when I get a call to photograph a wedding on the island. The last time I was there I discovered The Beach Plum Inn in Menemsha and it’s altogether charming!A #047A #066A #060A #297B #009B #134C #039
