Portraits for Sandy relief: Sticky Fingers & Snapshots

I was involved in an awesome fundraising even this past weekend called "Sticky Fingers & Snapshots". It raised money to help the Long Island area's Sandy relief efforts, led by the awesome Ananda Lima (a fellow wedding and portrait photographer) and Krista Punsalan. There were baked goods, a clothing drop-off, a raffle and portraits. I was asked to be the photographer and I could not be happier with the way it turned out.

The kids and families were fantastic. Everyone looked great and was patient waiting for their turn in front of the camera.

There was just no keeping this little guys energy from coming out!

What a day!

I couldn't have imagined a better, more satisfying shoot. Everything really came together. I was assisted by my friend and fellow photographer, Taj Dickinson, who really came through and helped make this a success. The event raised money which is going directly to help the people in need. I'm proud to have been a part of it!

The event was hosted at a comedy club called The Laughing Devil. I recommend stopping by if you are ever in the area!

For the fellow camera geeks out there, all images shot on my Nikon D700 and 50mm f/1.8G. Lighting was a 4 flash setup with speed lights and radio triggers.
