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[…]

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[…]

Adam, Jenna, & Logan

I think I already published this – but my site was hacked a little while ago (boo hoo) and I think it got deleted. Either that, or I have the dreaded “mommy brain”. Regardless, these people are so good-looking there’s no way I can stop myself from highlighting this shoot. I’ve had a lot of fun shooting my brother Adam and sister-in-law Jenna over the years. Favorites were our weekend in Paris and their maternity shoot. Now their little guy, Logan, is here! Over Christmas he was about 5 months old and we took the opportunity to do some great[…]

Happy Holidays

…from Perry and his cousin Logan! “…and there were THIIIIIIIS many presents!!” “…it was exhausting…I’m not even sure what happened after I fell asleep.” (This is what being a parent is about…right? Putting a fake moustache on your kid and documenting it for posterity? Sounds right to me…) Share this…TwitterLinkedinPinterestemailGoogle+

Me in the Moroccan Room

Emily and I really had such a great time in our Moroccan-room-shoot. I love playing like this, because we both get to be on both sides of the lens – and I think that is an invaluable experience for any photographer who’s remotely interested in shooting people, or particularly posed portraits. We have another “official” maternity shoot planned in the next few weeks, but I’m quite visibly pregnant now and there’s no reason (and no way!!) to hide that – so this was a maternity shoot too. And finally, one of my favorite photos of myself EVER, pregnant or not.[…]

Emily in the Moroccan Room

For years I’ve wanted to go to Morocco. Since (years ago anyway) that seemed unbelievably far away, I started collecting Moroccan stuff and eventually made Moroccan bedrooms for myself in a few different apartments. (Click the images to see more) When we moved into our house here after getting back from London, I thought: Moroccan dining room. Maybe a week later I realized I was pregnant, and after that news sank in, it was pretty clear we were going to want to make that dining room into the nursery eventually. I have zero, zilch, possibly negative desire to make a[…]

Capture the Color contest

We are *just* about to leave for Greece for our Big Fat Greek Wedding, but I saw this contest on another blog and I just had to enter. It’s called Capture the Color and it works like this: you put together five photos (with captions) from around the world, one from each color, and you nominate five other bloggers at the bottom of your post. So here goes! Blue While living in London, I took a spontaneous weekend trip alone to Zadar, Croatia. For two days all I did was wander the old town, eat ice cream, and take photos.[…]
