I know it has been spring for a couple weeks, but the weather is getting better in the northeast and the buds are budding. haha.
Today’s post is part 1 of my annual Newark’s Cherry Blossom Festival blog post. I enjoy going to the park and checking out the natural blossoming of the Cherry Blossom. Branchbrook Park in Newark, NJ is one of the nations oldest county parks and has an astounding collection of over 4, 000 cherry blossoms.
As the sun sets, enjoy the silhouette and welcome spring.
Stay tuned for more pictures coming soon…
Long week? Well relax, it’s Friday! Go and enjoy the spring weather. If your in the NYC metro area, keep warm haha. Weird weather! People had skirts on last Saturday. All week has been warm jackets. haha.
Today’s post is about food! Cooking is good for the soul. I went in the fridge and found whatever I laid my eyes on and made a decent meal. I never cook eggplants but I wanted to give it a try. I diced and mashed up some garlic and parsley, added some salt a pepper and managed to get a good sear on them. Then split open some maple sausage and seared that up too. Added a spring salad and fiber toast and then it was done. Check it out!
ohhh, let me know if you think I should start a food blog. Enjoy your weekend guys and gals!

Hope your Tuesday is going splendid. Today’s portrait is from a retirement party I took pictures for, Mr. Foster. Foster served Rutgers University for decades and had a great send out party. He seemed like a loved man from all his peers and I wanted to capture that. I made him an awesome photo album of the event; later, purchased another cause loved the work and creativity.
Here in the picture is two brothers, Big bro and little bro. Love your family, they are the only family you have until they are gone. Fight, laugh and hug.
Good afternoon friends,
Hope everyone has been well. Sorry for being distant; I’ve been hidden underneath a rock in Newark figuring out my next diabolical plans to take over the world. mwhahahaha.
On a serious note, I’ve been spending time pondering but how I can concur my world. People may not understand how hard it is to run things yourself, let alone consistently. I feel like a writer with writer’s block on a verge of writing an award winning piece but with no ink and massive potential.
“Most of the time, the answers we search for everyday are written on the back of the piece of paper you’ve been waiving around while searching for the answers. WE already have the answers. Just turn your paper over.”

Today’s piece is on a cellist out of Midtown Mahattan, Erik Jacobson, playing at the Highline in Chelsea, Manhattan. I was wrapping up a shoot near by with a client. In a way, his music help me take some of my best shots, indirectly. I came by, gave him a tip and asked to take some picture. Once finished, he gave me his card, and I later sent him his photos. He can find Erik Jacbson during the summer donned out in his tux and playing for the public. Make sure you drop a tip and tell Erik that Erick sent you. haha. Enjoy!

Today is a new day! With a week full of bad news, I still remain positive. We all have set backs in our life; however, we can’t let them pull us down. Sometimes, you just need a family to help pull you up. Families are important to me.
Family is the people that will be there for you when no one will. Family will spoon feed you those same words of encouragement that you have fed them through their lowest moments. I think this Friday is a dedication to family. They don’t have to be blood to be your family, they just have to love you unconditionally to be your family–and vice versa.
This shoot, located at Verona Park in New Jersey, was for a client of mine that had an ARMY of sons; furthermore, she basically has starting five! During our shoot, you could see the love Josephine and her family had. I really enjoyed taking their pictures. That day will be remembered because I helped create pristine memories that they could look at ever day in their living room. Contact me if you would like me to take pictures of your family.
I hope you’ve had a great week. Easter Sunday is coming and do you have your outfit ready? Well at least for your kids. haha. This throwback thursday will be about a first birthday party that I was proud to take pictures for. Little Dhani was amazing shoot for cause he was himself. I just allowed myself to be there to capture the moment. The King of The Bouncing Castle! Horayyy! Ahoy! and If you are in need of photographer, I travel. Just contact me to book me.
Happy Thursday! One more day left in the weekday. Can you feel the weekend brewing??? Well I hope you are grinding through work and ready to relax and play this weekend. Check out this portrait shot I took of a cool female boxer, Reesie. She was fascinated with my camera, so I decided to take her portrait while she tilted her head and looked at me. She was one of my best muses. Hahaha.
So check out the shot and let me know what you think.
