PJ Assembly

Having had the absolute joy of shooting with George on occasion, I am happy to pimp his workshop. George is fanatical about The Moment. And a much better photographer than I . He's wicked funny. And yet you forget he's there at weddings. If you're a photographer and you want to hone your skills, this is for you.

PJ Assembly is an in-depth discussion of all the thinking and experience that goes into planning, shooting and delivering great photo-journalistic images, anywhere, anytime without being bogged down with a plethora of gear, or having to resort to fads of either production or presentation…..

Leo, turning 3

I find myself always looking forward to seeing anyone from this family. Leo is the most huggable kid ever. He's a joy to have in the studio. I'd take him home with me if his mother let me.



Amber is a beautiful girl. She wasn't thrilled to be having her picture taken. But I never am, either, so I understood.



The Montgomery School had a wonderful performance of Oliver. I love to play with theater lights and a stage. I did yell at my daughter, who designed the lighting, for having it too dark upstage, and bright back stage. She of course, explained the mood and etc. She knows I understand.

Parent Resource

Norristown Mom

What a great site. My kids are all older. But if any of you have little ones in Montgomery County... this is a comprehensive site for those running on little sleep.

What a sweet dog from the SPCA. A 5 month old Germanian Shusky. Or something. Who knows. She's so sweet. She's not mine. She stopped by the studio with my brother and his family. And made the whole place smell like wet dog. Which is delightful when it's a good dog.

Irish Potatoes

I was going to photograph the Irish Potatoes that Connie makes at Sweet Ashley's Chocolate.
But alas. They are gone.

Art and Amy!

At the Kimberton Inn
With incredible music by Kim Alexander at No Macarena
who everyone agreed was the best DJ ever. And she gave me chocolate. I love Kim.

This wedding is not on my recent events page. Let's face it, it's my dearest and oldest friend's wedding. I was bound to act like a guest. And so these photos stay behind a password. Lord knows I'd never drink at a hired wedding. But I was forced to put my camera down at this one. And it was good.

Amy's dad spoke Just Long Enough.
Jamie and Laura could have spoke longer.

Random men. Actually, I'm married to one of them.
Cake was excellent (yay for neighbors that bake!)
and the cake cutting was adorable.

Amy's dad is a favorite person. The photo of him wearing the "crown"... fits. On so many levels. It's good to be king.

Joanne read this poem.
*(warning, if you're at work, it includes the F word)
And Art's niece read from the Prophet.

Because we love the idea of this:
Tulips. Perfect.

Us, as wedding guests

My dear friend got married.
I can't even begin to express how wonderful this is.

This was The First Time Ever that I have been to a wedding where the congregation, as the groom entered the room, burst into jolly applause. Like a stadium. Never before. That's how good this is.

My husband and I and daughter #4 were guests. Our youngest has grown up with my friend's oldest, and they're like cousins. They had a ball taking oranges from the bar. It seems that grown up cocktail fare was not their thing. So they improvised.

There'll be another post for the wedding.

Trusting your gear to a 7 year old.
Gaga and Msemmy...

Photo of me and Amy, by the groom...
In the last hour or so, I gave a camera to the 7-year-old. She was a hoot.
Here's photos of us, by the kid.

The new Logo is coming ...

Ellen at Identity Kitchen is working hard to redo the logo.

It will have the stained glass from the building incorporated into it.

Here's her blog...
