Continuing on my quest to expand my portfolio to rock stars of all influence I photographed DJ Fuzzy Fotch and Ted Thousand of Snake Sound System.  Ted and Ardie are brothers gone DJ collaborators and their sound is booty poppin’ moombahton. 
These two talented brothers were just signed with a record label out of San Francisco so they needed both an EP cover shot and something capturing them in action.  For their cover shot they wanted something “loud, vibrant, ethnic, and recognizable” so I suggested a Latin supermarket.  For their live shots they absolutely KILLED it at The Good Life on a jammed packed snowy Friday night. 
Here’s to the rest of your lives and an illustrious career for both of you. Rockin. Rock it. Love.

Turns out that southern California is a much nicer place to be in late December than Boston is. Who knew. I spent the day with the hilarious, gorgeous, smart, generous Shoemaker family. They rented a place on Balboa island near Newport Beach and we basically just hung out all day and watched little Emerson be precious.  If Emerson fit in a toaster I would slather her with butter and eat her. She’s such a great little kid.
Enough of me, let’s look at some pictures.  Meet The Shoemakers of Newport Beach.  Rockin.
Thank you. Enjoy. Love.

Some Smalls have all the luck. Remember where you heard this first:  Ayla Soucy will be a hilarious, hard working, smart, beautiful, generous, kind, quietly confident, low key, and deeply loved human being.  There’s no way around it with parents like hers.  Mark and Jamie are two of my favorite people I’ve met along this photography path, and I’m absolutely honored to be welcomed into their home to photograph their lives.
So much love to you over there in Ayer.  I’ll see you again soon, no doubt.
love. thank you. enjoy.

In an effort to expand my portfolio I have decided to photograph rock stars of many pursuits.  Laura Ganci is a gifted and beautiful woman so it’s a joy to be able to start with her.  Her voice is so beautiful and her songs are soulful and often heartbreaking, I love so much about her music.
She braved some seriously offensive temperatures to help me get these shots of her.  Turns out that Boston in December is cold.
Aaanywaaay….. let’s listen to her while we look at her, too. Her website is HERE.
Her myspace page is HERE
And she’s an identical twin!!  Here’s her and her womb roomie, Nina busking it up: YUP
Laura, I love you!!!  I believe in you times a gagillion.
A wise woman once yelled at me these words:
Sugar Glider spread your wings and FLY!!!!
git it.
