one belly, one big brother to be and some pancakes \\ arlington ma family photographer

in the spirit of trying to post more consistently i found yet another meant-to-be-blogged session in the queue that i never hit publish on...silly. because this beautiful belly has since become just about the cutest baby ever.  



and yes, i am still shooting this summer with a calendar filling fast. let's play!

december 10 on 10

it's that time of the month again. after last month's 10 on 10 the old crew wrapped up. having joined late i really only reaped the benefits of a few months. i was, am, still lacking the feeling of an inspirational artist community. it's complicated because i'm more than photos. i'm a wannabe writer. i've admired Erika Ray from afar, but recently used my finest cussing to weasel my way into her circle. guys. these are like, crazy talented photographers. and not only that, most of them are really great writers as well. if i can stick to deadline, they might just LOVE me.

new peeps just landing here for the first time, who the hell am i? i'm a boston globe food stylist, photographer, mother of two, wife to mister chris, living outside of boston. two journalists for parents, both with a love and eye for shooting. my relationship with photography was born in dusty boxes filled with curled photos and loose negatives.

three months ago, i felt bored. i was lucky to inherit from my mom a Canon AE-1 and from a friend a Nikon F100. after attending the FIND workshop as a model, my curiosity for film was reignited. while racking my brain, what to do what to do, for this first post with this new crew, i remembered i hadn't picked up my rolls from JUNE! so here it is. my first time with my feet back in film. i'm an endless work in progress. painfully imperfect. learning to share my journey.

next up is the ridiculously talented Joel Chapman come on, you know he's a cool guy when he's rolling with a bunch of bad ass bitches like us...
