Nicole & Joe are having babies!

Actually, they just HAD their babies, but newborn photos will come later! This is the first time I’ve ever shot maternity photos, and I LOVED IT. I would love love love to do more of this! People who are having babies, take note! We shot in and around their house, and particularly the nursery. Nicole has done a fantastic job of putting the nursery together – so we had to take advantage of that. There are more photos in the portfolio, but here are my absolute faves: Share this…TwitterLinkedinPinterestemailGoogle+

Geneva: CERN and a carnival

While we’re on the topic of nerds, here’s some more from Geneva. We took a tour of CERN (Best. Birthday present. EVER.), and went to a carnival. You decide which was which… Okay, the last one was a “gimme”. In any case, if you can go to CERN, YOU SHOULD. The tour was fun – complete with a 3-D surround-sound-headphone movie – and we got to see nerds at work. You can’t actually go into the LHC, obviously, when it’s working. So we just watched people analyzing stuff in a big control room. Look how many monitors they have! I[…]

Nerdy Perry

Your tiny accountant is ready to complete your taxes. He’s disappointed that you didn’t prepare your documents! He ponders how to proceed. There’s no use just sitting on the information he already has. Finally, he leaps to action! Something seems askew. Time to crunch some numbers… Success! You’re getting a refund 🙂 Lefteris and I are both big, big nerds, so it was only a matter of time before something like this happened. By the way, I’m doing everything I can not to *constantly* post photos of my (supremely adorable) son; instead I’m limiting myself only to extra-special shoots. In[…]

Geneva locks

We’re taking a trip down memory lane here. Almost two years ago now (holy crap, how time flies), for my birthday in August, Leslie, Peter, Lefteris, and I took a trip to Geneva to go to CERN, WHICH WAS SUPER AWESOME, and which I’ll do another post about shortly. While we were there, I (as usual) shot a lot of locks, and surprisingly, it was really kind of a jackpot in the lock department. The whole portfolio is here, but here are some highlights… I’m not sure if this is a keyhole on the left, but if it is, that[…]

Venice

It seems like oh so long ago… Just before our paperwork day in London, Lefteris surprised me with an anti-honeymoon long weekend in Venice. By anti-honeymoon, I mean that we went just *before* we were married, and we spent the whole time pretending we were strangers meeting in a strange city. Scandalous. Everything you’ve heard or read about Venice is true. It’s amazing; it sort of seems like a Disneyland version of itself. Very few people actually live there – pretty much everyone you see is a tourist. But the setting is authentically, astoundingly beautiful – the whole place looks[…]

Explorer Perry Conducts An Important Expedition

Explorer Perry sets out on an important expedition! He is excited about the prospects. But wait! What is that in the distance!? He crawls stealthily into the unknown… …searches high and low… …investigates hitherto unseen shapes and colors… Frankly, it’s exhausting. Time to relax with his monkey sidekick. He feels refreshed. Poses for a formal portrait, and takes a well-earned nap. All explorers do. But his cohort of animals can’t wait to hear his report – they gather around… The penguin disputes his findings. A heated debate ensues. But all is forgotten over lunch! See you next time, explorers! Share[…]

Missoula, Montana

Almost exactly a year ago, Lefteris and I went to my college town of Missoula, Montana for a long weekend. My jazz instructor was retiring and attending his retirement party seemed like a great excuse to introduce Lefteris to the Great American West. This ice cream stand, The Big Dipper, is an old haunt – I used to live just a couple of blocks from here. There are few things in the world better than one of their cones on a summer night. We took a drive out to Flathead Lake. There was a little cabin next to a museum[…]

Headshots of Lefteris

Lefteris has been doing more writing lately, and he needed an updated headshot to go with a recent article. He needed it quickly, and we needed to take a minimum amount of time shooting it – minimum as in “while the baby is napping, and within earshot”. Translation: our back yard and the alleyway between our house and our neighbor’s house. Luckily he is a natural in front of the camera – probably from the years of me encouraging him to be my model. (It doesn’t hurt that I think he looks just like a Greek statue come to life.)[…]
