What's your favorite subject to photograph, besides your kids?
My favorite subject to shoot, other than my daughter (of course), is the street. I live in New York and I love to go on walks and shoot cityscapes. I like looking for small details that people often overlook and I like capturing people in their every day element when they do not notice that I am there watching them. The city is alive with so much energy and activity and I love to try to absorb it and hold on to it with my camera.
Which camera do you usually use?
I primarily shoot with a Nikon d300 and several different lenses, as well as a Fuji Instax and my iPhone. Occasionally I also go back to basics with my vintage Nikon FM2.
What's a creative way to display photographs?
I love creating gallery walls at home using family photos and photos from my personal archives. I recently did a tutorial for how to make one on my blog. You can get really creative with making up themes of images, telling stories with your photos and also choosing fun frames. I also love making photo books. With the crazy amount of photographs that I take during any given week so many images are left to collect proverbial dust on my hard drive and memory cards and it's fun to go through them, pick a few favorites to hang on the walls in my home and to make photo books. Photo books are a fantastic alternative to albums and they make wonderful gifts for grandparents, godparents and aunts and uncles. My husband also loves the digital frame that I gave him for his first Father's Day. I filled it with a "greatest hits" of sorts and every few months he brings it home from his office where he keeps it on his desk and I update it with new shots.
