A Very Crafty Christmas

With plenty of free time on my hands I put it to good crafty use and made some holiday goodies for friends and family whilst having mini Netflix marathons to keep me entertained in the midst of my crafting madness. So I decided to share some of the presents that were made by the help of patterns found on Ravelry and Photojojo.

BTW if there are any knitters or crocheters out there reading this blog, I'm in love with the Stitch Nation Yarn by Red Heart. It comes in so many vibrant beautiful colors and works up so nicely. 

And although I didn't craft her myself, I did crochet the collar that is holding her lovely bow, that she just "loves" to wear

I also made a set of mittens for my nephew and my mother, but I failed to take a photo before wrapping them. Perhaps I'll eventually get photos and post them later but for now...

Portrait time

Taking portraits of children often proves difficult, not so much in that they move quick, but you have limited time. It essentially breaks down to my theory that children are essentially little recovering drug addicts, whose mood swings are fast and unpredictable and are highly dependent on some sort of substance (gold fish, cheese sticks ....) and are libel to snap when going without said substance for a period of time, thus getting that one shot that works all the more difficult. With that said, here are a couple of holiday portraits of my niece and nephew!

Recently I was fortunate enough to shoot some publicity stills for the upcoming play B*TCH written by Sean Pomposello and directed by Christian Amato.

A fun shoot on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan located near the ever popular High Line Park, it's hard to believe such a beautiful section of the city not so long ago was home to sex clubs and leather bars, but that's another story....

Back to the topic at hand, B*TCH. The comedic story revolves around three brothers who decide to embark on the unpleasant sport of dog fighting, enlisting the help of Uncle Knee Co, a card carrying member of the Mothers and Fathers Italian Association (aka the mob), in order to make big money fast.

After meeting the director and cast and snapping a few photos of the actors in character, I'm sure that the upcoming performances in January, B*TCH will be a hit.

Arthur Aulisi as Uncle Knee Co

Michael Neithardt as Junie

Benjamin Weaver as Mitts

Brian Cheng as Davy Dollar$

Gina Lemoine as Gil

B*TCH will be at The Players Theater from January 5th - 28th.

One Plus One Equals...

Inspired by another photographer, I decided to try this for my brother's family portrait and thought the outcome was adorable.
