Iwas hoping my first blog post would be about my passion for photography but asmy assistant/fiancé/already considered wife pushes to complete our new websitelaunch deadline for tomorrow I’m writing about procrastination. I’m embarrassedto say I’ve been wanting to update and relaunch my website for two years now.I’ve been lazy with wanting to go thru 30 years of work and decide what goes onmy new site. So in short, on Thanksgiving, I have my assistant/fiancé/alreadyconsidered my wife to thank for this website along with Greg Thomas the websitedesigner at The Paper Plant. They did all the work outside of me taking thephotographs and doing what I love and they are both working on Thanksgiving.I’m nervous I have too many photos on the site and I’m sure it will go thruvarious tweaks. I’ve never written a blog before and I’m unsure of what futureposts will focus on. But for now, I’m grateful to all my clients that have comein the past 30 years. I’m so lucky to do what I love for a living and to meetand get to know so many interesting people throughout the years.

Gregpicked this picture from a Bar Mitzvah I shot. I had zero clue what photo topick for a first post but I’m keeping this one. This photo came from aspontaneous moment of me watching this kid smear a mustard packet on his teeth.He was cracking up and I was loving it. I said, “Hey is that a mustard packet?”and he shook his head yes while laughing. I said, “Hold it up!” and snapped theshot. This photo reminds me to stop overthinking and to have fun. I notice someof my favorite photographs come from those types of moments.
