Lucy and I had an absolute blast playing around her house today. Lucy is one of my daughter Zoe’s favorite friends, and I can see why, she was so much fun to hang out with. Lucy made me some “food” in her new kitchen that she got for her 3rd birthday. mmm it was SO yummy! Then we had ourselves a jolly good tea party too. After that I got to see Lucy’s impression of Jimmy the Superfly Snuka as she lept off her bed on to her “oponent”,…dad! As if that wasn’t enough, I also got to see Lucy strut her awesome ballerina moves too! Thanks for hanging with me today Lucy, I had a great time. Oh, and Zoe says hello!

Another one of my favorites. I took the photograph of Lucy that’s on the wall 2 years ago.

Yesterday my daughter Zoe asked me to take her photograph. For those of you that know me, you know this isn’t a simple task! I had to get out the light stands, umbrellas, flashes, camera, the backdrop (which Zoe calls a parachute), and everything else. After it took me about 20 minutes to set everything up, Zoe was no longer interested in having her picture taken! What do you expect from an almost 3 year old?! So, I begged and pleaded with her to sit for me for at least a few shots, after all it was HER idea! I may or may not have even offered an ice cream sundae with the works if she cooperated! Well, she did manage to sit for me for a few shots and I did like the way they turned out, so decided to post two of them to share with you.

I know I am biased, but isn’t she adorable?

Well, it’s sort of a family tradition that the day after Thanksgiving we head up to my in-laws winter house in Pennsylvania for some quality family time and a little rest and relaxtion. This year we brought along my niece Arianna with us. My daughter Zoe and her cousin Arianna had a blast together. They even slept in the same room together! Arianna slept in the top bunk and of course little Zoe got the bottom bunk! We had so much fun eating Thanksgiving left overs, sitting by the fire and roasting chestnuts, watching movies, and of course feeding the deer too! We also had a great time by the lake.

Arianna is such a good cousin to Zoe. Here she is making sure Zoe doesn’t get too close to the ice.

Smoking is bad for you, everyone knows that! I guess no one bothered to tell Ray!

Today I had the pleasure of photographing my daughter’s good friend Nicky from down the street. He was such a great subject to work with. He enjoyed throwing his minature football and then proclaiming “touch down!”. He’s also a big Thomas the Tank Engine fan too, as you will see. I had fun today Nicky, I’ll see you around the hood little man.

This was one of my favorites of the day.

It gives me GREAT pleasure to announce that a photo I took of my daughter Zoe when she was a few months old has been published in a national magazine, Popular Photography, the October 2007 issue. It was featured in an article about specialty lenses. This was taken in her room. The sky was painted by our very talented friend Jennifer Pollak, a faux painter. And yes, that’s my chin and nose at the top of the photo!
