LBCA wanted to do something special for the volunteers that came back year after year. Myself included. I have been photographing this event since 2014.

Mary is a Long Island professional looking for a more polished studio look. We weren't going to try the red because she was wearing a red shirt but it worked our great and she ended up selecting 2 images on that background. I even got her to take her glasses off and she love the image so much because it reminded her of her mother. So sweet.

Myles is a COO of a vision company and needed some shots for his company website. We worked for friendly but powerful. I tossed in the Black/Whites because I think he looks masculine in those. Although, he liked it the Ladder shot was not one of his final 3 but I loved it so much I had to process it too. I loved the variation of expression and sometimes when you're a COO you need to be bad ass :)

I love when I photograph a family and years later they remember their experience and call me up to create new memories. This little family is part of a huge family I photographed in a restaurant in Roslyn a few years back. We did this session right in their own home in Long Island.

It truly is a gift to have the pleasure of photographing one of my closest friends. I met Agnes 9 years ago when my son Cooper was in kindergarten and we have been friends ever since. Agnes is one of the kindest woman I know. She is a proud Polish woman and a selfless mom. She is always cooking, cleaning and working to care for her family and friends. We literally cried while looking at the photos together. I am privileged to be able to show...

Anthony is an executive chef looking for images for his social media and to replace the look of his corporate listing. He brought a casual outfit, a chef uniform and a casual business look. I told him to bring a fun chef prop as well which is where the knives come in. I always love a prop that is specific to a profession.
