What better way to announce my departure than with a photoshoot in my very own town. Patchogue, NY. I can no longer keep this dirty little secret! The jig is up! Enough being in denial! This is life & it's happening right in front of our very eyes. For months I have been contemplating, second-guessing myself. Should we move? Do I have enough boxes? I"ll have to "spark joy" and declutter my closet before I leave. After all, starting over in a new place is SCARY! NY has always been my home! I almost convinced myself to stay in NY just because of the bagels, but I gave up carbs months ago so I can no longer use that excuse. So here we go, I am giving it all up, taking a chance on a new state ( Raleigh, NC ) to be exact. I"ll miss all those faces I photographed over the years & the friendships I made with fellow photographers. You have all been so good to me. As far as Raleigh, NC I look forward to meeting you & all you have to offer. I can't wait to photograph your beautiful families I just hope for your sake you have decent coffee :) Cheers!
