I spent an afternoon this week with two fabulous women for a very fun photo shoot. Colette Ellis of InStep Consulting needed a portrait for her page in the upcoming CRAVE NYC book. Kelly of On Call Stylist did a fabulous job with her hair and makeup. Colette had chosen the location, which I loved: Pane & Vino in Brooklyn. They had the best chairs!

I really wanted to take this chair in particular home with me.

Little Ella at 4 months old! My dear friends Karen and Bryan live in Kentucky and I was happy to finally meet their little girl!

so cute with dad!

I can't forget their furballs!

Euphrates was sitting in such pretty light; I played with this scene for quite a while until he got bored with me and ran away

I love the look of intent she's giving me

Sophia and Lydia

Sweet Sophia and Lydia are full of energy and so much fun to photograph! These two girls are the children of my dear friend Heather and her husband Michael. I spent a couple fun days with them in Kentucky.

I was getting dizzy just watching Sophia as she spun around as fast as possible.

I can now add fencing with sticks while photographing to my résumé

The girls decided their beaded necklace would look lovely on the kitty. I agree.

Lydia is ready to work, pink polka dotted boots and all!

sisterly cuteness!

Jen and Mike's engagement

Just before I moved to NYC I spent a beautiful morning with Jen and Mike in downtown Chicago for their engagement portrait session.

I saw this bike rack and thought it would be cute to have them sit in it, not realizing exactly how super tiny each opening was. So this is them attempting to squeeze themselves in. Thanks for playing along!

CLARITY Lecture with Gabrielle Bernstein

I had the great opportunity to photograph the fabulous motivational speaker and author Gabrielle Bernstein as she delivered her most recent lecture, "Clarity," at Organic Avenue on the Lower East Side.

There was lots of laughter and excitement flowing through the audience members throughout the night

I couldn't help but notice the fabulous selection of shoes the women were wearing!

After Gabrielle's lecture, she brought up 5 wellness experts to be part of her panel and continue the conversation.

Haleh Nematzadeh

Marie Forleo

Kate Northrup Moller

Alisa Vitti

Bianca Beldini

The panel was clearly having a great time up there!

Gabrielle led the audience in a meditation to start and end the evening

And how could an evening be complete without a cute fluffy dog?

Thanks for a great evening, ladies!
