Boston Center for Adult Education

If you're not taking a class at the Boston Center for Adult Education, you're missing out. Big time.

I trekked over to the BCAE's super hip new location in the South End last night with no expectations, save for my memories of 'adult education' on the Cape, which consisted of a group of bored people under my high school's fluorescents learning about tidal patterns.

This? Amazing. First of all, the BCAE's new space is absolutely gorgeous. Second, the classes on the roster last night included whiskey tasting, wine tasting, ghost science, and cooking for singles. See? I am not making this up. And there's so much more where that came from. And not to mention, on Fridays, the BCAE does what they call "Friday Night Out". Because many of the classes on Fridays are single-session, Friday Night Out is essentially a reception for those coming in and taking the class, a chance to mix and mingle, hang out, drink wine, and listen to great live music before taking your class. Who knew education could be so fun?

I did say whiskey tasting, right??

New Galleries

So I've been spending a great deal of time lately trying to find the best way to present a whole bunch of photos at once to my clients. While I have been using Flickr for many years, it didn't really give me exactly what I was looking for in terms of client galleries.

But recently, I discovered SmugMug and I think it's going to work out quite well for both me and my clients. The uploading is a little more time-consuming than Flickr, but the end result is great, and I can also add passwords and protection if need be. So, if you are a recent client of mine, click here and you'll find a link to your SmugMug gallery. You can also easily order prints, directly from them, to be delivered to you, for super cheap prices.

Back to uploading for me!

A busy weekend!

I have been getting a lot of work with kids lately..and that's just fine with me, because kids are so much fun to shoot! I met up with Jared and his mom on Saturday afternoon at the Plymouth waterfront. Jared's mom hung out with his baby brother while Jared and I roamed the shore, having fun and taking pictures along the way. He was a complete natural in front of the camera, struck many poses -- including a lot of goofy ones -- but we had a ton of fun.

I also did something very new this weekend -- party pics! While I am no stranger to pulling my camera out at parties I've attended (my friends can truly attest to that!), this weekend was the first time I shot parties for complete strangers. Much thanks to my good friend DJ Lisa Z for setting me up with the gigs.

Friday's party was a fun-filled surprise 50th in Falmouth. The group was a rowdy, fun crowd -- a perfect group for my first attempt at being a party photographer. I am a little shy, but this bunch made it so easy! The guest of honor LOVED having "papparazi".

Saturday night's event was another surprise birthday party, also in Falmouth. An awesome family--lots of laughs, lots of fun! I love it when people get together with those they haven't seen in a long time, those moments are simply wonderful to capture.

I've got a lot of editing ahead -- stay tuned for more updates to the site!

A slight change...

If you've come to this blog before via, you may notice a slight change. I've moved from my website's blog to this one, because I realized that my old blog didn't allow for comments. Not that I have grandiose ideas of people coming here and just -dying- to comment, but I thought it would be nice if you could. So welcome, it's all exactly the same, just a tiny bit different.

Todd & Becky

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting headshots for Todd and Becky Gosselin. Todd is an old friend of mine from back in my college radio days, and Becky is a friend of another friend of mine. Funny how the world works sometimes!  At any rate, they are such a fun couple, with an amazing chemistry. I absolutely love working with actors because they know how to ham it up for the camera, and seem to truly enjoy having their photograph taken. Both Todd and Becky are very involved with the Academy of Performing Arts in Orleans. Right now, Becky is starring as Maria in the Academy's production of The Sound of Music. It's running through mid-March, so if you find yourself on the Cape, I highly recommend checking it out (not to mention the Sound of Music is one of my all-time favorite musicals). Todd is an actor as well--check out his website for more info. He's got some awesome shows coming up at the Academy as well. I hope to work with both Todd and Becky again in the future--they were so much fun, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the camera loves them too!!

On Display!

I've been so busy these past few weeks, I almost forgot to tell you all about my show! Four of my photographs are on display at the Nile Lounge in Allston, MA, as part of a charity show. The show includes photography and paintings from local Boston-area artists. Proceeds from the sale of any piece go to benefit Kick for Nick, an awesome charity. So if you are local, or even if you aren't, and find yourself in the Boston area, go on over to the Nile and check out my work. 

This is the first time my work has been displayed (outside of family and friends' homes and of course online), so even though it's a small show, it's a big deal to me. This year has been quite exciting so far, and I have so many fun and creative projects coming up -- not to mention tons of photos that soon (read: tonight) shall make their way onto the site. 

If you have a creative idea, or if you'd like to work with me, feel free to shoot me an email - -- I'd love to hear from you.
