The Fashionable Life

Fashion lives!

Last Thursday, Marie and I spent an evening shooting an event for the lovely ladies of LilyPad DC, an organization with a mission to "entertain, spoil, indulge, and delight the young professional DC woman." Nothing can possibly be more fabulous than that!

The event, "The Fashionable Life," held at Hillyer Art Space, was a beauty and fashion happy hour, and there was certainly plenty of both! In addition to networking, the ladies who attended enjoyed manicures, eyebrow shaping, tips from stylists, great music, makeovers, delectable bites and wine. What more could a girl want?!

Even in spite of DC's week of nonstop rain, the city was abuzz about this event, and the floods didn't keep people away. This was the place to be. The Fashionable Life was more than just a good time, it was absolutely fab!

Travel: Martha's Vineyard

Who knew that heaven was only a train and a ferry ride away . . .

Last weekend I took a much needed vacation in that I, for once, traveled for leisure. I visited an aunt, who I haven't seen in over a decade, at her home on the island of Martha's Vineyard. I relaxed, watched the sunrise, sipped tea, soaked up the sun, and perhaps most importantly, powered down my Blackberry. My weekend was purely blissful.

Although my intent was to steer clear of all things that resemble work, I couldn't help but pick up my camera. Photography does more for me than pay the bills; it's my most relaxing and cathartic hobby.

Included are photos of the "Inkwell Beach", Oaks Bluffs, Edgartown, Aquinnah, and yours truly :-)

Old Hollywood

I admit that these aren't all pictures of "old Hollywood". They are just a few black and white pics I took while in Hollywood last week with my "old" camera :-)

Anyway, enjoy . . .

DC Social Innovation Project

Last week, we had the pleasure of shooting at Funxion in DC for the launch party for DC Social Innovation Project. This nonprofit is dedicated to identifying and investing in creative, new ideas that tackle pressing social issues in Washington, DC. The energy in the room was as electrifying as the lively decor. We had a great time navigating our way through the crowd. To say the least, it was packed! Kudos to the visionaries who not only conceptualized and actualized this organization but who also threw an awesome event.
