St. Barths

I’m feeling extremely lucky to have spent the last week in St. Barths on a photo shoot with an incredibly kind, fun and gracious group of people. Even though we were technically there for work, it all felt like a dream vacation. Filled with broken french and lots of laughs, caftans, croissants, baguette and the glorious Caribbean sun, it was an experience I’ll never forget.

Jessica Kim at Home

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Jessica Kim, founder of BabbCo, at home with her adorable children. Jessica was featured in the The Daily Candy’s ‘Help Please’ column, an advice column for mom’s on how to juggle raising kids and a career; a feit Jessica made look effortless. Her three little ones, ages six, three, and one were so spirited and chock-full of giggles and personality. It was without a doubt a fun morning had by all!

Vermont

Yesterday we ventured up to the Stowe, Vermont area with friends for a little leaf peeping, some gorgeous views and a lot of good food. From fresh apple cider donuts to Laughing Moon Chocolates, and most importantly two stops (yes, lunch and dinner- we couldn’t resist) at Prohibition Pig, we couldn’t have been more gluttonous if we tried. It was the perfect day spent with wonderful friends in one of my all time favorite places.

Giulia

I photographed Giulia on a dreary, rainy day, but immediately felt cozy and welcome upon stepping inside. Whether it’s the handmade touches of decor (including the colorful table runners) or the unpretentious, delicious Italian cuisine, Giulia is sure to make you feel at home.Pictured above: Orecchiette cacio e pepe, Tiny clams in brodetto and  Pistachio gelato.

This adult milkshake, or “Concrete” (named for its ability to stick to the cup when turned upside down), is a must try on jm Curley’s late night menu. Below is the Grand Finale- Berkshire bourbon soaked blueberries, cookie dough and vanilla ice cream. Enough said.

Shojo Restaurant

Shojo is tucked away on Tyler Sreet in Boston’s Chinatown. Know as the go-to place for modern Asian cuisine, Shojo has a unique atmosphere, with touches of exposed brick and reclaimed wood table tops. I especially love the black plates, a welcome change from the standard white, and one that really makes the food pop! Featured below are the Suckling Pig Boa and the Gin Gin Mule.

The Potter

A few days ago, I joined my parents and my father’s group of seventh graders on a class trip to Old Sturbridge Village. I hadn’t been in years, and had so much fun rediscovering the charming place that it is. After rounding the bend by the Freeman Farm, I spotted the Pottery shop, my favorite stop as a child. I have such appreciation for this beautiful craft and have always found potter’s wheels so soothing. It’s fascinating watching that wheel spin and with a gentle, skilled touch of the hand, a cup appears out of a lump of clay! I was so excited to snap these portraits while the potter was giving a demonstration, and loved the dark interior and the bit of window light peeking in on his face and hands. It’s such a joy watching an accomplished craftsman in his element, and I’m so pleased I was able to capture him.
