Saturday was the second annual St. Christopher's Prom and it was again amazing to be able to participate. I got to see a lot of familiar faces from last year, as well as many new ones. The kids are all great and their parents, hospital staff and volunteers are all as equally awesome for giving so much to them. Mike Jerrick from Good Day Philadelphia on Fox 29 was there to MC for a good portion of the event. Be sure to watch at :58 when someone tries to pick a "fight" with him. I'll update this at some point in the future once I get around to editing photos.

Last week, I went to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children for their prom dress and tuxedo fitting. This will be the second year that they've held a prom for their oncology unit. Last year, I had the privilege of shooting both their fitting and the prom itself. I'm excited to be able to help out again this year. All of these children had to deal with so much, it's great they have something to celebrate. At the fitting, I got to see some familiar faces as well as plenty of new ones. I'm looking to share the images from this year's prom in a few weeks.

The prom committee is still raising money to help out with the prom on April 13. If you're interested in donating (every bit helps), you can contact

Update 4/12:

In addition to the photos I shot the other week, I also shot some video. Here's a quick look behind the scenes at the fitting and I guess a bit of a preview for tomorrow's prom. Enjoy!

In February I was contacted by The Refinishing Touch, a company based in Georgia that takes the existing furniture in hotels and universities across the country and updates them. They break down, resurface, repaint and otherwise repurpose old furniture. The result is a much more modern look, for a fraction of the cost and without the waste generated from disposing of old. As owner Mario Insenga put it, you're saving two types of green. Something that's both saving money and environmentally conscious sounds like a pretty good deal.

It's not always clear to people what "refinishing" entails, so TRT asked me to shoot a few before and after shots of the work they do, as well as produce a video. The challenge with the video was to give a sense of how a room is completed. This was accomplished by shooting several rooms in different states and cutting them together. Multiple timelapses were also shot to help condense what takes hours into just a couple minutes.
