Charlie is definitely a NYC dog. While he can’t stand the sound of fireworks or thunder, he’s completely fine with sirens wailing and loud trucks down the street. When DogVacay contacted me to ask if I wanted to be a part of their new photo campaign and show how my dog represents my hometown, I had to oblige! DogVacay is a pretty cool website that allows dog owners to find a dog sitter who provides home boarding for their pups. It’s basically Couchsurfing for dogs! So, how is Charlie a NYC dog? Let...

Nicole and Rob had a magical wedding in upstate New York at a summer camp! Easily one of the most creative and fun weddings I’ve ever been to, and an adorable couple to boot! More soon…
I love love, and these two are just doing it right. When two people are truly head-over-heels mad for each other, you can always tell. The whole room lights up with it. Usually when couples request a studio session for their engagement photos as opposed to one out in the world, I’m aware that I have to think creatively about posing, since there are no environmental props to interact with – e.g. “sit on that bench,” “hold hands across that table,” or “go hang out with that statue.” Ok, that...

Natalia and David flew from Spain to NYC to get married, and boy were their arms tired! (I’m so sorry.) Natalia speaks a little English, but there was a bit of a language barrier since my Spanish is rusty – i.e. I haven’t tried it since high school, and these days I can only summon “Where is the bathroom?” which isn’t terribly helpful when suggesting poses. Luckily one of my favorite assistants is a native Spanish speaker, and he was kind enough to translate back and forth for all... Read The Rest →
Actress, you always put on an amazing show. Le Poisson Rouge, you are one of my favorite venues to see live music in all of NYC – which says a lot, we have a ton of venues here! These two forces combined made for an amazing night. Dark for photos without using flash, but in concert photography I always prefer to use ambient light when I can, to preserve the vibe.
Jessica and Tal are amazing! I’m always pretty excited about mixed race couples, since I come from one In fact, both bride and groom’s parents got a kick out of the fact that, with a Chinese mom and a white dad, I am a living example of what their grandkids might look like! (Then I showed them a photo of my beautiful sister, who looks totally different to me. You just never know!) Their wedding day was a rainy one, but that didn’t stop them from being completely adorable. Plus,... Read The Rest →
I’ve known Rey Ridalin since he was known as… well, that doesn’t matter anymore! Rey is among the most prolific artists I’ve ever worked with, and his work is GOOD. As someone who doesn’t have a lot of hiphop in her iTunes library, I have to tell you – Rey has earned a permanent spot on all my “GET MOVING” playlists. Check his official Facebook page for music and updates! Oh, and he has the most badass NYC tattoo I’ve ever seen. Scroll down…
Nao contacted me wanting a portrait for his company’s new website launch – Green Street Energy. He specifically requested that we “stay away from anything corporate looking,” seeking instead a casual – while still professional – portrait. Green St. Energy manages the installation of solar power setups. Woo hoo, a company doing something awesome for the environment! Lauren Colchamiro Photography approved.
Women in tech make my heart (and brain!) happy. Having spent some time in the field myself, I can relate to how male-dominated it is, and I have a special kind of appreciation for awesome women who are breaking the mold! Meredith Perry is just such a woman with her invention and company, uBeam. There’s not much to the site yet, but she’s generating a lot of buzz in both the business and tech spheres, by addressing a problem we’ve all had: dead batteries in our precious mobile devices. Basically, Meredith’s... Read The Rest →
I love senior dogs, I really do. They’re so relaxed and chilled out at home, but can still get just as excited about a game of catch in the park as any young puppy! Casey, a 10-year-old golden retriever, is a perfect example. His energy came in bursts, encouraged by a tennis ball and some loving owners We hung out in Cooper Park for a bit, throwing the ball around and showering Casey with treats. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon!
