Nicy’s 40th birthday portraits

I got really behind in sharing photos over the summer and fall, and some great shots got neglected. Case in point: Nicy’s 40th birthday photo shoot, which definitely deserves to be seen! Sooooo, better late than never, please enjoy these fun portraits  Nicy is a wonderfully evolved and positive human and I was so glad to capture some of her joie de vivre in pictures. Instead of lamenting turning 40, she celebrated it and I love that! It was truly a pleasure photographing this gorgeous woman!

A modern-day Audrey!

Have you ever wanted to be Audrey Hepburn, just for one day? Check out these fun portraits I did for a client who’s a big Audrey fan. The dress, tiara and cigarette holder are hers, but most of the other accessories are mine. I have an extensive collection of vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories, and it’s always fun when I get to use that stuff on a shoot!

In the opening sequence of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, Holly Golightly, after a night of partying, emerges from a cab in front of Tiffany’s. She holds a paper sack containing her breakfast, which she eats while gazing into the shop windows. You can see a still from that sequence HERE.

This image was inspired by a 1953 publicity photo (HERE) from the film “Sabrina”. The client brought her own 1950s-era black phone.
