Focus Philadelphia Book Release!

A few days ago, I was able to attend the book release party for the Philadelphia chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), to celebrate the new Focus Philadelphia book! An honor as always, I was one of the photographers who was selected to have an image in the book, and couldn't wait to see my photo in print!

With so many outstanding photographers (and over 400 individual photographs!) submitting to the competition, I wasn't sure if I my work would make the cut, but I'm happy to know that my images can compete with such a group of talented artists. To learn more about the competition/book, click here, and hopefully I'll have more good news for you all soon!

New Beginnings!

Last week, I had the lovely pleasure of shooting a baby shower for a lovely woman named Anita. Her sister inquired on whether I would be available to photograph the chic brunch they had planned, and of course I was more than happy to help them document such a special kind of celebration.

The baby, cutely coined "M" at the moment, is not expected to arrive until August, but the anticipation was undeniable! Both family and friends came to share wisdom, words of encouragement, and enthusiasm with this soon-to-be mom. 

I think my favorite part of the whole shower was the game they chose to play once the meal had commenced. They created the most adorable version of "Catch Phrase," which of course was baby themed. Overall it was a lovely event that seemed to bring everyone a little closer together, waiting for the arrival of their new family member. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day, hope you enjoy!

Booya Fitness Promo Photos!

They're finally here! Over the weekened, Booya Fitness put up their new monthly workout videos, so the wait is over! This was an awesome project to be a part of, and I met so many inspiring and motivated people, I can't wait to do it again! If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive workout plan with minimal time commitments (all of Booya's fitness videos are 30 minutes or less), you should check it out. And the best part? All of these workouts are designed to be done from within your own home!

Behind The Scenes: Booya Fitness

2 weeks ago, I had the wonderful pleasure of working on the set of Booya Fitness, taking stills for 30 minute exercise videos in collaboration with Hallman Productions. After sorting through the hundreds of pictures, I've finally gotten around to editing some of the photos, especially ones behind the scenes. Here's a look into the making of an exercise video, and official promo photos to come shortly :)

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
