Neglecting, the blog

I'm sorry I've been neglecting the blog. I know a lot of you click through regularly to check out the latest buzz, because I've been regular about posting it.

So I'm going to press the restart button and am starting anew. So here's the low down on why the blog has been neglected.

  1. As you know, I've been writing a book...well, even that has been neglected the past few weeks.
  2. My mom got remarried. It was a nice vacation, fabulous weather, UT and CA were great, (If I ever get tired of NYC, watch out CA I'll be looking for a new hood) and it was so good to see family again!
  3. I'm starting a photography business.

You're what!?!

Yes, you heard right. Since I bought my new Cannon DSLR back in April, I've re-discovered a love-affair with taking pictures. And at long last, the large creative void in my life left by being a non-musician is slowly being filled.

Wow that sounds so cheesy, but it's true, so I'm leaving it in.

I've been developing a portfolio, working on verbiage and pricing for my photography site, and even met with some models on Saturday to help showcase my skills.

So what am I going to focus on? Weddings, headshots, and relaxed portraits.

Need new headshots for the upcoming season, or in the middle of planning a wedding for next year? Spending the day in The City, or at the beach with your friends or family and want me to tag along to capture memories while you're playing? I'm the photog for you.

**I'll be running some introductory specials, so if you need a photographer within the next few weeks, drop me an email and we'll chat. :)

Enough of the advertisement. lol Here's a shot of one of the photogs I met last Saturday at the shoot in Central Park. It was a great day and nice weather, wish you were there. I'll post some more photos tomorrow.

  1. Good for you!

    Have you been to
    Audrey Woulard thinks they are very helpful expecially when starting up a business.

    There are happy hour discussions that I think you would like...and learn a lot from.

    (Sorry about that final preposition...I'm from the Midwest...I can't help it.)

  2. Thanks for the tip! And final prepositions are welcome here. :) Since I'm not a snooty writerly type of person.

  3. that's awesome! wow!
    I know a couple photographers in ny. They are immensely talented and started out as assistants. Not sure how they're doing at the moment with their personal work.

    One was working with an architectural photographer and another, who did mostly fashion in school, is focusing on still life.

    New York is a great place to be to do this stuff.
    Best, k
