Leah MacDonald | Art & Inspiration Workshop

Leah MacDonald | Art & Inspiration Workshop

-

As an artist, I often feel pulled and pushed in new directions.  It’s an exciting roller coaster to make something and put a piece of you into your art.  It’s scary too.

Every year, I hope to attend one workshop. Sometimes two.  I want to push myself and take my work to the next level.  

I was introduced to encaustics through Jennifer Hudson’s 2011 workshop with one of my best friends Peggy. It was an incredible experience, but difficult beyond belief to create a piece.  I deeply admire my friend Peggy’s work and when she introduced me to Leah MacDonald, I was excited to hear that she taught an art workshop with wax, paint and encaustics not far from my hometown.

Leah is a multi-talented artist, photographer, mother of 2 who makes these incredibly beautiful albums, which should be called treasures instead of albums.  I can’t describe them with words, as they contain photos, memories, notes, poems and so much more than you could imagine.  They’re so unique.  Check out her site: http://www.bliss-etc.com/book-arts/allisons-delite-book

THE WORKSHOP

Leah MacDonald was such a kind and thoughtful teacher. She was so welcoming opening her home and studio up to Peggy and I this week customizing everything, ensuring we were at home, feeding us and answering our 15,000 questions.  Her energy and positivity was infectious.

She introduced us to the process, the tools and options.  She taught us how to look at a piece and work with it until we love it.  This is an ancient media, but she helped us understand the possibilities and gave us confidence to dive right in and make something beautiful.

During our workshop we learned to make art with wax, oil paints and pigments and encaustics too. We used pottery tools, mounted our prints and created art from scratch.

It was very scary at first.

But Leah guided us and answered our every question and suddenly we were creating on our own.  Well, with help initially.  Hehe

It was so exciting.  My portrait was transformed into a piece of art that I was so proud of.  This is one of my favorite pieces.  Its 16×20 mounted on wood.

It was such an incredibly inspiring two days with Leah MacDonald.  I learned so much and can not wait to make art pieces for myself and for our clients at Je Revele.  I’m ordering supplies and can not wait to try this again next week in my studio.

Thank you Leah for opening up your heart and your home and sharing so much with Peggy and I.

Teresa Napolitano| Real Housewives of NJ | Boudoir Photos NJ

Late this Summer the gorgeous twins Teresa Napolitano and Nicole from the Real Housewives of New Jersey visited our historic castle studio in New Jersey.  We planned a two part session together.

It was wondering getting to know these ladies.  They have such an incredible family and relationship.   I don’t have a sister, just two brothers myself.

I think its such a rare gift to be best friends with a sibling.

Someone to be a sounding board…

to laugh together with,

shop with and love life.

They’re both so optimistic and genuine.  I had a blast photographing them with Kristin.

Today, I’ll be revealing a few of Teresa’s gorgeous boudoir portraits.  Stay tuned for Nicole’s.  Thank you to our insanely talented hair and makeup artists Michelle Ernest who has been with me for over 3 years and Jackie Allen our new powerhouse stylist.

These beautiful women have children, AND they also have incredible personal trainers.  AND great genetics.  I rarely see abs when photographing women.  Teresa is so toned it inspired me to put down the brownie while I was writing this blog.  He he

New Jersey Family Photographers | a Day with Miss Hannah

New Jersey Family Photographers | a Day with Miss Hannah

 

One of the greatest joys as a photographer is being a part of a family’s history.  In the early Spring of 2011, I photographed Hannah’s mother and father’s wedding.  It was a day I remember very fondly.

Three years later, they have a beautiful daughter and newborn son.  Their family is complete.

Although that may remain to be seen.

I couldn’t wait to photograph Miss Hannah.  It was the perfect Fall day.  It wasn’t too chilly, but the leaves were beginning to fall.

This elegant young girl, stole my heart from the moment we met.  She was an angel and seemed to enjoy the entire experience in the park.

My hope as a photographer is to capture a day in the life of children being themselves.  Just dressed a bit fancier.  Hehe

Here are a few of my favorite photos, capturing Hannah’s spirit and smile.  What a love.  I can’t wait to photographer her little brother as he grows.

New Jersey Family Photographers

My goal is to capture an unforgettable moment for your family: a split second of truth when your loved ones convey emotion.  My hope is that this precious time is immortalized as ART.
