Jacqueline and Troy, September 10, 2010 engagement



Jacqueline and Troy are getting married on 9/10/11 so we made the engagement photographs exactly one year in advance, and it was a gorgeous day at Beavertail State Park. The thing I enjoy about photographing at Beavertail is the variety of seaside looks you can get from one locale: rocks, ocean, lighthouse, there’s even some manicured lawn if you want it. We also included a quick drive through Jamestown to “use” the Newport Bridge and step into the Bay.

It's a girl!

I don’t usually post anything purely personal here, but I have to mention (and show off) our new daughter. We had our baby girl Moira Zabel Dadekian on Wednesday, February 3rd at 8:25 a.m. She weighed in at 6 lbs. 11 ozs. and is 19 inches long. Here she is solo and with big sister Brigid. Everyone is doing wonderfully.

Right before a snowstorm on a cold December day I went to a home in Warwick as a Christmas surprise to a grandmother. She received the gift of portraits of her children, spouses and grandchildren. We had a nice time making a few photos outside in the cold before heading into her warm home. Happy Holidays everyone!

Those of you who have seen my photography of The Talent Factory Dance Company will recognize Tara’s name as the person who helps pose those wonderful young dancers. We had a great portrait session back in July and now here’s the results of that day. Tara’s a very accomplished dancer as well as teacher and she told me to feel free to be creative with the prints, which is why there’s a mix of styles and looks here. I couldn’t be happier with the work we did creating the photographs in this post.

There are twelve more photographs if you click to continue.

By popular demand I’ve been asked to post some more of this year’s Talent Factory Dance Company portraits. If you count how many from this session I’ve turned into final prints you’ll understand how much I enjoy making them. Thanks once again to Dana, Tara and all the wonderful dancers.

Two hurricanes, two weekends in a row (just storms by the time they reached New England) can make for some difficulty in scheduling portraits. But even though the waves were splashing up onto the Forty Steps, the rest of the Cliff Walk was dry and pretty last Saturday—perfect for 18-month-old twins to run around and smell the flowers.

Soon after winning the Miss RI Outstanding Teen scholarship competition in mid-June—in part by singing an amazingly beautiful version of "At Last"—Emily Luther and I met in downtown Providence for a quick photo session. It was an effortless morning working with Emily and I wish her the best of luck in the upcoming national competition.
