I love books. I read slowly and can fall asleep before finishing the first page. However, there are few activities that make me feel more accomplished than reading a book from beginning to end.
The juxtaposition of a structure in ruins and freshly painted urban art, nestled on the breathtaking bay side of Key Biscayne, is one of the most stunning sights I have experienced. When I first walked on the grounds of this decrepit, yet still somehow magical building; full of broken glass and copious amounts of empty spray paint cans, the first thought that came to my mind was….Photoshoot!!

I photographed a great event this past weekend. Alyn Kalach organized an incredible display of color, texture, and beauty, all for a great cause.
Alyn and Mexican designer Ivonne Cohen united forces to raise funds for the University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University’s Center for Autism & Related Disabilities.

JH (my husband) and I went to The Sagamore Hotel for our first proper photo shoot together. I chose this location because it is one of my favorite hotels in Miami Beach. Though as luxurious as the best of them, it has a very relaxed and informal feel. The staff is incredibly friendly and the walls are normally covered with amazing art work.
The lush green area which serves as a preamble to their amazing pool is perfect to sit down and relax while reading a favorite book, at least that is what I do from time to time. Continue Reading →
