Meet a Model: Winter is Coming

Winter is my favorite season, especially when it's still fresh, white and clean. During the Juno storm of January last year I knew I wanted to produce a winter shoot that would capture the essence of the blizzard. Luckily there was a team who shared the vision and off we went to the Arboretum, laden with winter furs ready to go knee-deep into the snow!

Boston: Neiman Marcus, Laura Mercier Beauty

Nothing feels more glamorous than getting your hair did and your makeup done, am I right? With one of my personal favorites, Laura Mercier, it's easy to get glammed up and feel put together without feeling like the makeup is caked on.

At Neiman Marcus, Laura Mercier experts pampered some ladies with lovely colors for summer, while hair stylists amped up their hair!

I had the honor of meeting and photographing the iconic Donna Karan, thanks to commissioned coverage for Saks Fifth Avenue, this Fall. I was delighted to cover the opening reception party for her luxurious designer shop in the newly remodeled space for modern and contemporary fashion.

In grand company, Ms. Karan was welcomed by Stephen Sadove, CEO of Saks Fifth Avenue, Gretchen Pace, VP General Manager, Jennifer De Winter, VP of Stores at Saks Fifth Avenue as well as other friends and guests.

To me, Donna Karan has always represented the modern woman; the strong woman. Her Fall 2013 collection is no different. Built upon her first stand-out collection of seven easy pieces and also influenced by her late husband Stephan Weiss' sculptures, the pieces are sensual and sculptural, working together by addition or subtraction.

Of course, I wore her clothes, and loved capturing the essence of the collection up close, each piece is beautiful, timeless and powerful, just like the woman herself...

Sometimes you meet a person at just the perfect time in your life.

For me this person is Alaina, a freelance writer, who recently moved to Boston and contacted me for a fashion and lifestyle shoot for the launch of her new blog So Alaina.

The day before the shoot, we met for tea and hit it off! I couldn't believe we hadn't met before!
Since then, we've been to yoga together and jogged umbrella-less through Back Bay in search of smoothies.

Our stages in life, love for travel and support for the Bruins (a topic of many a conversation) are just a few of the similarities we both share, so without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the beautiful, warm and bubbly Alaina!
