We are back from an amazing trip with Sony at Photo Plus Expo. Brian posted some fun images on Saturday from the Sony World Photography Awards. One of my favorite highlights was when my publicist from Random House and Sony met and started forming what they are calling “Team Me Ra” . Those two women are crazy awesome. It’s going to be wonderful to work with them as a team. I love that I have such incredible, strong women surrounding our business. Click here to see our photo!
I can’t imagine what we’d do without the resilient, creative, passionate spirit of women. I learn so much about the vast beauty of femininity from my clients. Whether it’s Caroline’s fierce, committed love to her baby or one our Amazing Moms taking a risk and starting her own photography business, I am inspired.
The month of October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I have to tell you, I’ve never seen so much effort put toward this cause. Having traveled a lot this month, I was super encouraged to see all the different efforts that the airlines are making from Jet Blue’s counter being surrounded by pink balloons to Delta flight attendants wearing pink shirts.
On Saturday night, our last night in NYC, we finally got to see Wicked. Amazing…really no words to describe how amazing Wicked is. After the Wicked the actors took their bow to a roaring standing applause, they made an announcement on behalf of Breast and Ovarian Cancer, as well as HIV, for donations. I don’t know about you, but when corporations and artists come together for a good cause, it encourages my soul.
This was an image that I shot of Pascaline this summer. The timing was crazy!
A friend said the shape of the ribbon reminded her of the pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. I’d love for this image to be another visual reminder that fighting breast cancer is not only about helping all those who have it, but the generations to follow.

Photo Recipe for Pascaline’s Pink Ribbon: Aperture was low at 2.8, Shutter Speed was 1/200th of a second and the ISO was 100.
