Miss Penelope

penelope615

Young love is a complicated thing, especially for the darling Miss Penelope. Though everyone knows she is promised to Dirk Janson – a match to align two of the most affluent families on the East Coast, a dream couple to spend their lives on the glossy pages of society magazines – she dreams of another: a quiet man with mystery, with a different upbringing than her own. She hears his song in the garden as he warms up for that evening’s dazzling lawn party and asks herself – should she go to him, the one who makes her heart happy or can she keep these feelings a secret for all of time? After all – Dirk Janson is the most eligible bachelor of them all.

Miss Penelope knows the power of beauty…and of mysteries. To whom does her happy heart truly belong? Well…that’s one of the best kept #ChopardSecrets of all…

Dirk Janson

A charming risk taker, Dirk Janson is well-known for being fast on AND off the racetrack. He’s rarely found very far from his beloved cars…or from the presence of a beautiful woman. Seen sporting leather driving gloves and the sleek Mille Miglia GT XL, Dirk kicks up clouds of dust in a classic convertible on his way to the manse, smirking to himself as he recalls who will be attending tonight…the jewel of the Gold Coast, Miss Penelope. Though a total playboy, he knows he is destined to marry her but perhaps on this night… she has other plans…

Underneath the charisma and beguiling smile, Dirk Janson has a few well-kept #ChopardSecrets of his own…but what else is speed for, if not outrunning your demons?

House of Secrets

HouseofSecrets001-1

When Chopard asked us to make a series of Cinemagraphs for their site, we took inspiration directly from the world in which Chopard lives: sparkling, wealthy, glamorous, and very cinematic (as you know, they host the Cannes film festival each year). So we decided to write a scene, this moment in time where six characters are all about to collide together, the moment before everything happens when all you have are butterflies and anticipation, dreams and a House full of Secrets

Over the next 5 days I will introduce you to our six characters: Eros TwomblyDirk Janson, Miss Penelope, Lord Byron WoodringLady Argyle, and Mademoiselle Suzette in this mansion on Long Island where their fates lay in wait in my favorite collection of Cinemagraphs yet.

Won’t you join us for the festivities…and see what #ChopardSecrets you may unveil?

Staying connected NOT through social media

While I was away recently in Provence I was traveling without Kevin (horror) due to some client editing deadlines happening back in New York. It’s not often that we are apart considering all the work we create is together and we are married. Recently Canon sent us their new PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer and I thought, now THIS could be a way to make it fun being away from each other. Why? Because it’s in the cloud, which means I could (via their PIXMA Printing Solutions application) send surprise images from my iPhone to print out on photo paper throughout the day showing him what I was up to (translation: what he was missing out on).

It was a really thrilling way to keep in touch and at times felt a sweet and old fashioned, like sending postcards… instantly. When I first started sending him images I would totally ruin the surprise by texting him, “DID YOU GET MY PRINT?!!” so I had to learn to play it cool. Kevin loved waking up in the morning discovering what I had done that day that was not shared online, not on Instagram, and was just between us. When I returned from the south of France he had them all pinned up on the refrigerator and we got to walk through them all one by one, recounting all the moments he missed but could still feel a part of. What do you do to feel connected when you are away from loved ones?…
