A Hudson River Romance~

Way up on the Hudson River line in an old farm house lived a fluttery winter romance around a roaring fire, streaming Dutch window light, and a moveable feast tucked away atop Strawberry Hill…

A Beautiful Designer~

Katie Ermilio is a designer of beautiful things… maybe that has something to do with being the granddaughter of Grace Kelly’s personal clothier or having worked at Vogue. Either way this incredibly talented (and wonderfully sweet) woman is destined to great fashion stardom. 

These are the photos Rue Magazine commissioned me to shoot of Katie in her work studio, wearing her own designs for the premiere issue- click to see Katie’s classic fall shopping guide and swoon at the great taste and goodies!

All photos shot with my Pentax Spotmatic and fuijifilm 

“The Private Life of a Legend”

“To spend a day with Vicente Wolf is to walk in the footsteps of a Design God.”

When the editors of Rue Magazine first approached me about shooting ‘A Day in the Life of Vicente Wolf’ I was… well, nervous. Mr. Wolf not only was letting me intimately shadow his day but he was also welcoming us into his beautiful Manhattan home. After I met him the nerves left as we talked about blogging (YES! he blogs!) and his amazing personal collection of photographs by the world’s most important and visionary photographers. I mean, I almost cried when he shared stories about Avedon. Thank you Mr. Wolf for this amazing essay, it was truly an honor.
