A Gif for you! Happy Spring…!



Ali + Greg of BEAM

I had the pleasure of meeting Ali + Greg on one of their Sunday Funday open houses at their newly opened Brooklyn store on Kent Ave. I loved their colorful space and all of their amazing designers’ work! I was so excited that they work with a lot of local, Brooklyn based, up and coming artists, and that they had such an interest in the latest and greatest new things.

Check them out !


Here are a few from our latest shoot! We had a blast! Ali + Greg are great.

Meet Bhold’s Susan Taing

Susan is the owner of Bhold, an amazing Queens based company specializing in 3-d printed products! I was blown away by her designs at the Maker Fair, and had to learn more about what she was creating.

She specializes in making products for modern devices such as cord wraps, phone stands, phone car mounts, and many more devices to make your interaction with your phone and devices even better. One of my favorite is the Bheard Sound Pod, an amazing cup-like object that amplifies your phone’s speakers… too cool! The neatest part is that each invention goes through 30 plus prototypes which are 3-D printed and beta tested, before they go to market!

Check out her site and her colorful products. Here’s some of my favorites from the shoot in their Queens office studio.




in2Green in Hastings-On-Hudson

Great new company I photographed called in2Green! I met Lori at NY Now and we decided to do a shoot at her cute house in Hastings-On-Hudson–which I fell in love with!

In2Green uses all upcycled materials for their throws, blankets, and knitwear. All the materials come from recycled, organic cotton materials in which t-shirt fabrics are re-fiberized into threads and spun into yarn that they make all of their textiles. Not only is it earth friendly in that it reduces land and landfill use, but no extra dyes or chemicals are added. Too cool!
