It is hard to stay on top of when and where my work is printed. My genre is complex since I shoot products and have no bias as to on what or how. I just think deeply and explore products visually with my camera. So despite being a product photographer, I often lean towards more of a fashion photographer. It is logical, many of the products I shoot are fashion products and often brands who start working with me one way, trust and ask me to shoot their products other ways. Cosabella is a great example of where working together small lead to much bigger shoots. This was shot last fall and has just released.
You can imagine it is hard for me to track down my work when the time between shooting and printing is so long. Cosabella is really awesome about it though and they often sneak me a catalogue way before it is seen by anyone else. It is a small but very appreciated gift to get to see the shots finalized months before they go live. This season has some of my favorite lingerie to date, btw. I’ll take one of each of the above, thanks.
Also on their homepage was another shot from that day, the Align Shoot. Cosabella has some fantastic (and super stylish) activewear.
What I wasn’t expecting to find was a shot we took last month for maternity! This sweet and beautiful model was sandwiched between two shots from over half a year ago!
Cosabella is just about the only place that makes really cute maternity. I wish I had known when I was pregnant! Somewhere, I scanned some more shots from the new Summer 2016 catalog and will share here when I find them! For now, enjoy!

A few weeks ago, I did a two-day shoot at a ranch in Davie, Florida. This was the beginning of a busy eight full days of shooting for two different clients. This particular shoot was for Cosabella, whose team is wonderful to work with. The location had pastures, horse corrals, a cabin and working windmill, barns, a true western town and an authentic saloon. They also had all kinds of animals including horses, cows, goats, sheep, donkeys and even camels. The baby animals were adorable. It was fun exploring our various options for shooting all around the ranch.
Thanks to the wonderful Cosabella team and Livestock for Reel for a successful shoot.

Donald J Pliner, one of my steady e-commerce clients, recently sent out an e-blast with my photos promoting their men’s driving loafers and women’s summer favorites.
And they also updated their website with a compilation of my shots as their intro for their men’s and women’s best sellers as well as their summer “must-haves.”

Recently, my client Cosabella teamed up with Dana’s bakery to collaborate on a Mother’s Day promotion. For this, they needed some still life shots of a few of Cosabella’s signature pieces with some of Dana’s Bakery’s tasty macarons. It’s always a blast shooting for Cosabella! Here are a few of the photos they used in their e-blasts as well as on their Facebook page.

Donald J. Pliner has been one of my longest running clients to date. I hadn’t thought to do a behind-the-scenes video of working with them, but last week we were finally able to! Thankfully Marina, my intern, was available to come with us on the shoot in order to film throughout the day. Patti was kind enough to give a short interview about what is like working with me. This is what a typical shoot day for Donald J. Pliner shoes is like. Enjoy!

Cosabella used more of my photos for their e-blast. I shot both the on-model and product shots used here in this promotion for their wedding lingerie.
