Mad Men…

Share

Wow..it seems inconceivable that my mom’s existence was based on what time my dad got home from work. She was married in the late 50’s and up until my brother and I were in middle school, she bought into that “Betty Draper” suburban promise. It seemed that life was so much simpler when there were […]

Liz Taylor, dead at 79. An end of an era. Her greatest acting accomplishments paralleled her real life. Both Academy awards were for movies that seemed like scripts from her tumultuous love life . In BUtterfield 8 she was the home wrecker and in real life she had just stolen her best friend’s husband, Eddie […]

La Dolce Vita…

Share

Meeting with a wonderful retail client today was both rewarding and inspirational. Of course she was a NY City working mom and arrived for our late morning rendezvous wearing a chic suit and heels, but more importantly she engaged me in conversation about life, love and parenting. Long after she had left and I had […]

Tea for Two

Well, we had a bit of a spring teaser here in Mayberry. The weather was awesome on Friday and Saturday and I was lucky enough to be booked to shoot both days. I also shot yesterday down on the boardwalk in Asbury… Brrrrr…windy and cold (BTW the picture posted is not from any of these […]

Snap Shots from June Cleavers life

Share

I love the idea of dressing beautiful to do mundane tasks around the house, but the reality is that it’s not practical for any of us to first shower (I mean sometime I don’t even do this ), put on a full face of makeup and get our hair done just to dust! Since this […]

The Donna Reed Show NOT

Share

Let’s go back in time (just for a reality check, not for real) to TV’s most popular Mom’s from early television. They were almost interchangeable. Harriett Nelson, June Cleaver and Donna Reed were all housewives. I swear, I looked up each woman and really couldn’t see much of a difference between them. Did they all […]

Wisteria Lane

Before my “mommy life,” I coveted shoes like a billionaire collects art. There’s nothing like a well crafted shoe to put a swagger in our step, confidence in an entrance and enhance our self esteem, which seems to take a beating every time our kid says, “but mommmmmmmmm.” Unfortunately, grocery shopping, school pick ups and cheering […]

Belle de Jour 2

Share

Well , here’s part 2 of my story inspired by the 60’s movie Belle de Jour.  The rooms and lobby at The Bungalow Hotel  were awesome, but what I really loved was the hallway on the 2nd floor. As we walked out of the room to shoot , I realized the hallway was the perfect […]

Belle de Jour

Share

Welcome to Suburban Bliss…We had so much fun shooting this “Belle de Jour” story at The Bungalow in Pier Village ( designed by the great team of “9 by Design”) Empowering mom’s with my camera is really fulfilling both personally and creatively.  I was going to include Kim and Sue’s kids in the shoot but […]
