 HAPPY JULY 4TH!

I had the pleasure of working with Maggie Inc.'s Rachel Donnellan on this summer-inspired editorial shoot for July 4th!

Come along with us as Rachel, with curls in her hair and a sun-kissed glow, becomes one with nature in the cool shade of the lush ivy walls of Boston.

Ending the day with a vanilla cone from Frosty's Ice Cream Truck at the Public Garden is the right thing to do!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy long weekend!!!

Neiman Marcus recently celebrated the 30th Anniversary of its InCircle loyalty program with an evening of fashion, cocktails and LIVE art by local artist Amy Kaufman. Amy wowed the crowd with the artful strokes of her brush, while cocktails were served in this season's favorite color: pink.

Neiman Marcus Style Advisor Dave Chen styled twenty-eight looks in a Spring and Summer fashion presentation featuring all of the trends for this season. Of course, no Neiman Marcus extravaganza is complete without delectable treats! Thanks to East Meets West Catering and Georgetown Cupcake, Spring continued right onto the plates! Music beats provided by the talented Scott Arrington of Murray Hill Talent.  

Let's see what SPRING has in store...

 

As a photographer I am always seeking to capture the beauty in everything and the grand opening for the newly remodeled designer floor at Saks Fifth Avenue was exactly that: beautiful.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was hosted by VP General Manager Gretchen Pace and Marketing Director Cara Fratto, who unveiled the myriad of luxury boutiques including Donna Karan, Alexander McQueen, Alaïa, Stella McCartney, Pucci, Givenchy, Céline, to name but a few.

Each of the luxury brand's aesthetics are reflected in the unique layout, lighting and interior design of each shop. Exquiste materials, some imported from Italy, are showstoppers themselves, notably the pink inlaid wood floor (designed by Stella McCartney herself), the luminescent onyx wall from the team at Céline, and the baroque moulding at Alexander McQueen.

Donna Karan herself raved about the newly designed floor when she was in town for the launch of her own in-store boutique.

Join me as I take you on the scenic route through a lil' bit of luxury brought to you in classic Saks Fifth Avenue fashion...

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...
