A huge shout out of thanks to these 8 incredibly talented musicians for inviting me behind the scenes for their Nov. 17 show at The Capitol Theatre - a mecca for musicians and a pretty cool place for us regular folk. The respect, admiration and love they have for one another makes this one family I will never get tired of photographing... and hearing!
The lights, the fog, the theater, the music - all combine to create some of The Capitol Theatre's magic... and 8 Track Band is out there doing what they do best, AND having FUN! It has been an incredible journey watching them evolve - remember "Cougar Magnet"? How about "The Dad's Band"? From basements to headlining at The Cap. this band has heart and is the band to watch.
The Allman Brothers' "Midnight Rider" dedication to Mr. G. was beautiful. I had spoken to Frank Gasperino just the week before about seeing the show - he was so excited to go. I trust he was there in spirit with a big smile dancing along to the music he so loved.
The Cap. is filled with treasures. I LOVE this place!

Hanging with the Cougar Magnet band before their last concert at Garcia's was a blast... so honored they asked me to take their new band photo! What could top that? Getting to listen to them rock while taking some action photos at one of the coolest venues around. You are in luck... they are back at Garcia's this Friday, June 10!

Last Thursday was that perfect overcast sky for some photo taking. After drop-off I collected my camera bag and took off for Tod's Point. While there I ran into some Kite Surfers and got to watch and even capture some of the magic that happens when the wind combines with the water and air.
Below are some photos I took for Alec, one of Tod's resident Kite Surfers. Enjoy the show, I know I did!
I would like to thank those of my uber organized friends for sending me their holiday cards — before Thanksgiving! You know who you are. Now the pressure is really on for me to get our card done and start decorating.
Getting holiday cards is like a gift each time I/we open the envelope — especially when I was fortunate enough to take the photos! Here is how I display all our friend's cards without worrying about messy tape on the walls... and it is an easy way to start decorating for the holidays.
Sometimes the scenery in a portrait can evoke a mood that creates a powerful photograph beyond the gorgeous smiles.
During an OG YOGA and Wellness yoga class this September, I was captivated by the overcast sky and cloud formations. Here the moody skies provide a tranquil backdrop for Tracy Bechtel's Dharma yoga class. The end result = zen.
Just down the beach from the OG Yoga and Wellness class I found a seagull posing... "Fish pose"?
The sunset over the Gulf of Mexico is one of the most gorgeous sunsets I have ever experienced. My children were more than happy to dance around on the beach for me so I could catch their spirit and the majestic colors from those final minutes of light.
Big sky — a little fun during our final hours in Lido Beach, FL.
A big congratulations to a gorgeous girl (inside and out) and her beautiful family on an incredibly special day. I am honored to have been asked to capture such an important moment in their lives.
Ok, ok... I am the first to admit it — when the temperature is below 50 degrees I really don't want to get out from under the covers. It took my mother to get our family out for a walk this crisp January day. The kids had a ton of fun and we all got some much needed fresh air.
I am hoping to go outdoors with the kids and my camera in the next snow storm... that is if I can pry myself away from my down comforter!
This fall has been full of spectacular weather and tons of gorgeous smiles!
Here are some fun candid photographs from two recent Holiday Card photo sessions at Tod's Point in Old Greenwich.
A.M. Session at Tod's Point — the Gardens
P.M. Mini-Session — the Beach
After our morning family photo session, we all came back to Tod's Point at 5:30pm... with grand parents in tow.
This 15-minute session captured all three generations enjoying each other and the beach.
P.M. Session — the Gardens and the Beach at Tod's Point
For this next photo session, we started at 5pm and had some great adventures in the gardens at Tod's Point.
We were able to rally the boys for one more location... the "magic hour" on the beach, and captured some beautiful family moments in the sunset.
I would have to say, Tod's Point in Old Greenwich offers the most variety in settings and is by far my favorite place to take photographs in Greenwich. From the beautiful sandy beach and rocky coastline to the green gardens and secret spots, there is no shortage of backdrops to make anyone feel comfortable. It is the perfect place to capture everyone's personality in a photograph.

Friends of Greenwich Point has a great write-up on the history of Tod's (Greenwich Point) that helps explain its beautifully diverse landscape.
Taking pictures is my passion. I take family portraits in and around Greenwich, CT
