Montreal







In April we took the train from NYC to Montreal. It snowed. The train ride there was surprisingly relaxing and the scenery was really beautiful. I highly recommend training it up to Montreal if you can. Shot on a Mamiya 645 Pro TL and Kodak film.

Happy Birthday, Little J!








A year ago today, this lovely, funny, smart couple brought a new little boy into this world. And he is quite possibly the most good-natured child I have ever encountered. Happy Birthday Little J! You are adored by everyone who meets you.

Jazz Age | Governors Island | August 2012




I brought an old Canon AE-1 with me to the Jazz Age Lawn Party back in 2012. Unfortunately, half way through the day the camera completely died. Never to be resurrected again. RIP Canon AE-1. You can see photos from previous Jazz Age Lawn Parties here and here
