Giving, to make the world better!

Founded in 2005, the is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower underserved youth with a sound financial foundation. Now more than ever this organization is needed to break a generational cycle and to change the way youth, ages 12-18, view money by equipping them with 5 tenets for a financially responsible life: learn, earn, save, invest and donate.
The Youth Business School was founded in 2009 for graduating youth who desire to become entrepreneurs. Youth attend such courses as, entrepreneur mindsets, legalities of business, creating a management team, marketing, accounting and business pitches.  
Since being introduced to this organization a few years ago, I was, and still am amazed at the level of commitment Sabrina  has given to this cause, and how the participants of this program have endeavored to work, study, and be the best that they can be. As a photographer who feels very fortunate and blessed, I feel that it is important to give back to causes like this. I have benefited tremendously from just being within ear-shot of these amazing people.
This slide show contains photos from their tour of The White House, The Pentagon, and The Frederick Douglas House, amongst other places.

Photo shoot with Nancy and Joshua, and baby to be....

I photograph weddings and models primarily, and do it pretty ok. Photographing kids and pregnant moms is a new arena for me. As challenging as the task of photographing kids and animals goes, it's a lot of fun. When it's windy outside and I'm trying to shoot a bride and make it look good, or whether a child wants to play during the photo shoot, I have learned just go with the flow. Que sera, sera... what will be will be!
Here are a few images from the shoot.

Cancun, Mexico beach photo shoot with Natalia Wilhelm

It's no secret that it's COLD in New York. Well, it's winter!! Fortunately for me, I was in Puerto Morelos, Mexico shooting a wedding.
Also, I was in Cancun, Mexico this week working on a photo shoot with Natalia Wilhelm of Canada. This multi-lingual, multi-ethnic beauty stands at almost 6'0 tall. Not only is she beautiful but she has talent, grace and poise and is one of the most intelligent humans that I have met. Here are a few photos from the shoot.
