So, I’ll admit, its been awhile. Things got crazy around the holidays and I let my little corner of the web sit quietly for a bit. This year one of my resolutions was to take more personal images – I always have the camera in hand for clients and then tend not to take it out with me when I’m not working (you know what they say about the cobblers children having no shoes??) – and I plan to blog my favorites here.
So I have a slew of session images to share (some dating back to the summer!) but I figure you’ve waited this long, what’s a few more days.. and so instead I’m going to share some ‘personal’ images I took while on a recent shoot with Bentley University in New York City. (And yes I do understand the irony of this Boston photographer sharing two posts in a row with photos from New York!) Long story short I ended up at theMartha Stewart Show and was so happy we could take pictures before and after the taping.
I am a fan of all things home, food and crafty and so excited to be there. Of course, all the days that I could go to the show and the topic is.. wordworking! haha. I got a lovely magazine and DVD on woodworking and on building your own canoe – can’t say I plan to tackle that DIY anytime soon! The guest star that day was Nick Offerman, from the show Parks & Recreation, who is an avid wordworker.
I was so enamored by the set and details – though how rude there were video cameras, lights, and boom arms in my shots! ;) Here are a few grab shots from the pre/post taping – including a couple of Martha.
A little reminder that yes, you are going to be on TV…
The set – a ‘kitchen’, ‘craftroom’ and ‘greenhouse’, all beautifully styled. And look at all those lights!
A loved this little craft station! Martha knows its all about the details.
I also loved the paper and ribbons on rods in the background

Stay tuned this week for some favorites from one of my Summer sessions – need sunny images to make me forget we are getting another 2 ft of snow dumped on us today!
