Behind the Scenes: An Editorial featuring Tristin and Tyler!

Lights, camera, HUGS! This sweet, energetic video was created by Tristin and Tyler, who were a part of my Elephant In The Room editorial for Little Revolution magazine earlier this year.

Tristin and Tyler are twin brothers, media personalities, models + actors who live in NYC and love to check out and share what’s cool for kids on this website and their YouTube Channel! Whether they are sharing the coolest activities for kids on television, checking out the hottest spots for families in NYC in their series What’s Up, City Kid!?doing a live cooking demonstration or getting silly in their upcoming series What If?, Tristin + Tyler are taking media by storm!

Thank you so much, T&T for this fabulous memory!

Weddings by Ana

One of my New Year's resolutions is to re-do my website! (The never-ending un-finish-able task, am I right, artists and entrepreneurs?) Nevertheless, I began that process last month in January, and I took my wedding gallery down off the website while I tinker. 

As I go, I'm uncovering all kinds of beautiful memories of my glowing brides and grooms, and they deserve to see the light of day, er--lights of the internet! So while tinkering continues, I'm posting some images here that I am particularly fond of. 

Black and white images are often heart-stoppers like no other.

Other times, only color will do.

hello, future helpers!

Dear new baby sisters,

It's only a matter of time before you will copy everything I do, so I'm going to start being a role model now. Would you like to hear a story?

You guys are so cute... but sometimes you cry a lot. I'll just take a nap in the other room.

Big sisters need "me" time. 

I'm so glad you've arrived. I have so much to tell you and show you...

Love,

#1 Big Sister


the longest day

It's the longest day of the year today! 

Where did the 8:45pm sunset find you? I decided to lay on my back in the grass on the Great Lawn in Central Park, watching the big orange ball fall lower and lower in the sky.

New yorkers show their rallying spirit, in the most brilliant way. We all root for each other. Check out how these marathoners helped out their communities on the day of the would-be race. And this is an exceptional slideshow of Sandy photos, so New York.

And here's my favorite tiny New Yorker for today, even from her small stature showing the same enthusiasm for her fellow man as the rest of the taller variety!
