A Senior "with swag" Graduation Portrait Session

My most recent portrait session was for a Suave Senior named Dan. We had a lot of fun commemorating this most significant event in a young man's life. Enjoy!

And that's a wrap folks. 

Congrats Dan and Congrats Class of 2018!

Stay tuned lots more portrait sessions in the next coming weeks!

Our humble abode - aka chateau c'est la vie - has experienced plenty of changes, upgrades, remodels and transitions throughout the years...

I have enjoyed every single minute of exploring my inner decorator whilst experimenting with many distinct phases and aesthetics.

Here are some recent takes of a space that will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

My Photo Art Wall never ceases to make me smile. 

Fresh picked Peonies from our yard. 

My living room has that "collected over time" feeling I created with vintage frames and books.

Some recent celebratory events I hosted for family and friends. I love to put together a simple, colorful but beautiful tablescape. using items I already own and some fresh flowers.

Hope you enjoyed this peak into our beloved "Maison." More updates and significant changes to come soon as we embark on a new journey as well as upcoming Summer Portrait Sessions I will be sharing. Stay tuned friends.

A Session of Love - D and J

Hello friends, it's been a while, I know.  However, after a very long and arduous Winter I am back...

With the onset of Spring, my natural light portrait sessions are also back.

I commenced this season with a very special portrait session for a very special couple.

Set among the idyllic and almost storybook settings of the Pennsylvania Woods and this incredible Cabin, I set out to capture some timeless shots with an ethereal setting.

Hope you enjoy...

Also took some very unique and cool Fashion Editorial shots, different from my usual style, but thoroughly had fun with these:

More to come from this special session as well as many other client shoots planned for these warmer months. Please stay tuned...

An Apple a Day...

On a perfectly crisp Fall November day on a picturesque Upstate New York Apple Orchard farm, a couple of fraternal twins and I had a fabulous and fun portrait session...

Love how these pictures capture their childish innocence, their dynamic energy and their special twin bond. After all, when you have a twin, you have a friend for life...

Hope you Enjoy!!!

They are the cutest, aren't they?

Also, make sure to visit my photography art shop Cestlavieart on ETSY where I feature many of my nature, travel, and landscape photos that are available for sale. Prints like this one, also taken in the aforementioned apple orchard.

Stay tuned for the next portrait session this season, it promises to be special...
