Baby P Makes Three: Brooklyn Maternity/Lifestyle with Cristin and Justin

Brooklyn Maternity Feb 2014

Cristin and Justin are an absolutely adorable Brooklyn couple expecting their first baby any day now. I just *loved* hanging with these two. The love they feel for one another is palpable, and I love how they constantly make each other laugh out loud without really trying. They have fun wherever they go and it’s [...]


Hurricane Sandy Relief, Mike D and Triple Trouble – September 2012 Update

Triple Trouble Muggin' with the man Mike D

Alright, what’s up everybody? Yeah I know. It’s been rather silent here, and for that I apologize. We’ve had a challenging few weeks here in NJ. I’m based in central NJ, sandwiched just between two of the hardest hit areas in the path of Hurricane Sandy. To my north, the devastation in northern New Jersey [...]


Beastie Fan Celebration Video by Ryan Banks

Ryan Banks' Beastie Celebration Video

Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I fully admit (again) that I totally suck at blogging on time. This summer and fall has kept me running between NYC and NJ so much so that I am fully admitting that Brooklyn and I are in love. Sigh. Please, don’t tell New Jersey. She’ll be jealous. [...]


Solid Gold Hits NYC

Solid Gold Hits at Ivy Brown Gallery, NYC

Following MCA DAY so many wonderful things have transpired. I am so happy to have met some incredible new friends who share many of the same interests, had a few great trips back and forth between NYC, saw some incredible artwork (more on that in a moment, I promise!), and saw the realization of a [...]


Another Trip West of Texas (Part 2) Feb 18-19, 2011

THE MYSTIC KNIGHTS OF THE COBRA! Petaluma, CA. I’d never heard of it before this trip. It’s about an hour or so north of the Bay Area, a part of CA I’d never explored before. So I hopped in the rental car, and drove through the scary torrential rain to the rolling hills and open [...]


Another Trip West of Texas (Part 1) – Feb. 18-19, 2011

THE FRUSTRATORS!! I love New Jersey. I do, really. I love a lot of things about where I live. But sometimes, California calls my name. And once she starts calling, it’s only a matter of time before I eventually break down, give in and go for a visit. So that’s what I did.


Beth and Alex Tie the Knot! 5-15-10

Beth and Alex on the grand staircase of the Tuscany Inn

Beth and Alex got married on a positively spectacular day back in May. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day (or bride, for that matter!). Beth was radiant and literally glowed once she put her gown on. The couple selected the lovely Renault Winery in Egg Harbor, NJ as their wedding location and [...]


Beautiful things exist in Asbury Park. And Honah Lee.

I’m writing this blog post for a few reasons. First I need to be more diligently updating this thing, because I have SO much to post. I’ve been a crazy insane-o person this year, working more than I ever have in my life and doing fun rocknroll things that prevent me from posting as much [...]


Sunday was Awesome as F**k. New York City 9-19-10

Love the hat, John!

This Sunday I had a whirlwind day up in New York City. I took a quick break from the “editing cave” (holy cow I have a lot of editing in the queue) and headed up on the train in the wee hours of the morning to do some portraits of a client of mine for [...]


Prima Donna kick a hole in the Khyber 7-28-10

You may or may not have heard of Prima Donna, hailing from Los Angeles. If you haven’t heard their particular brand of sixties-ish Sonics era garage inspired rocknroll, do yourself a favor and change that. Like, right now. It’s okay, go. I’ll wait.


Party! Party! Party! time is over. 4-25-10

After a wicked week of craziness, sadly our west coast friends had to make their way back to California. After a brutal hangover morning at home, Jim and Tanya and I shook off our hangovers temporarily to go and say goodbye to the Cobras before they headed back to the city and then back home.


Party! Party! Party! Day 4: Grillin’ and Chillin’ and Mill Hillin’

There is so much going on here... WILD times with these Cobras!

With my foggy memories from this whirlwind tour, I forgot to mention that Lori, Tim, and Jim and I kidnapped Trell (the Cobras’ keyboardist) and took him home to Trenton with us after Don Hill’s. Muahahaha!!!


Party! Party! Party! Day 3: Don Hill’s, NYC… AKA The Greatest Birthday Present Everrr!

Wait... What the hell is going on?

Waking up after the crazy night I had at Asbury wasn’t easy. But, since I woke up literally 10 minutes before checkout, I kind of blindly fumbled around, grabbed my things, and hit the road. Friday morning was BRIGHT and sunny (ow!!) and made me feel a little like a wampire. Blehhhh. Creeping out into [...]


Party! Party! Party! Day 2: Asbury Lanes and My Birthday! 4-22-10

We rock. That's all.

After an epic start to the tour at Arlene’s Grocery, we headed down to Asbury Park for the next show at Asbury Lanes. I have to say that in hindsight, I think the Arlene’s show was probably my favorite. Both bands had something to prove. I felt like a proud mama hen watching my boys [...]


Let the Party! Party! Party! Begin… 4-21-10

LAMMIES!

The Party! Party! Party! Tour quickly went from an idea we bounced around jokingly to a reality. It all sort of hit me when the laminates arrived. The tour was tossed around between the Mystic Knights of the Cobra and Jim and I on our trip to the Bay Area for New Year’s Eve at [...]


Jen and Tim Engagements 4-11-10

You're locked in now, brother.

It’s not everyday that I get to photograph a couple like these two. Every photographer has his or her own muse. A person that inspires and trusts them to experiment with their craft. For this shoot, I got to do engagement photos for my muse.


Beth and Alex Engagements 4-29-10

At the end of April, my dear, dear friend Beth, her fiance Alex and I all got together for a whirlwind engagement session… just a mere two weeks before their wedding. The couple owns a house in a semi-rural area of central New Jersey, and on my way to their home I spotted a cow [...]


PINHEAD GUNPOWDER SECRET SHOW 2-12-10

So… this President’s Day weekend was spent in the most fun way I could think of. Last minute plane tickets and plans to see PINHEAD GUNPOWDER play GILMAN STREET. To someone who loves the Bay Area sound so much, this was an exciting trip!


R.I.P. Mark Vella 1988-2010

RapeBabies031107-015-w

I didn’t know Mark very well, but I definitely liked him. Last Friday, 2-5-10, he passed away suddenly. Really sorry to see him go. Hopefully, he’s in a better place now.
