I'm always honored to photograph the New York Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund events, and Answer the Call is dear to many hearts. Held at Waldorf Astoria before they underwent renovations, it was a memorable event with Mark Messier of the New York Rangers and Rusty Staub of the New York Mets who founded the non-profit organization. Along with the many people who have Answered the Call, their annual gala event has raised funds to help the children, wives, husbands of fallen police officers and firemen/women who lost their lives while helping New York.

Twilight's Peter Facinelli who plays Carlisle Cullen, was in NYC celebrating SEARS Outdoor Life mens clothing launch. SEARS recently launch the new clothing line in over 800 stores and on www.SEARS.com. The new clothing from SEARS caters to men who love the outdoors with a blend of casual sportswear and performance clothing as well as style and comfort. Peter Facinelli was dressed from head to toe wearing the new clothing line and he definitely looked like the most outdoorsy person out of the Twilight Cullen family. I'm happy that LDC Design asked me to take a part of their latest event as they created the outdoor campsite in the middle of Time Square NYC. Check out a few pictures below.

Star Struck! Meeting Jasmine Star & JD at The FIX New York

JasmineStar001.jpg

It's not every day a person gets to meet their idol and get really star struck. I'm happy to have met one important one, Jasmine Star and JD during The FIX. The photography world know Jasmine as an international wedding photographer based in Orange County, California who was voted as one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographer by American Photo Magazine  in 2010. She has built her business through hard work and perseverance and is now helping the photography world by sharing her experiences, providing much sought after advice, and stressing the importance of building excellent relationships with other photographers. JD is not just her supportive husband, but part of the team that photographs the gorgeous work Jasmine Star provides to her brides and grooms. Knowing how lucky they both are to be working side by side I couldn't help but be envious since I do miss just hanging out with my husband :-). As much as I want what Jasmine and JD have, the fact that I have one amazing and supportive husband is even more important to me. Seeing Jasmine and JD together just affirmed my belief that I am one lucky gal to be following my passion and art and to have the support I need at home to keep me motivated.

After the event, I posted the picture below to Jasmine's Facebook page and like a school girl I was happy and excited when she replied and thanked me. I should be thanking her again and again. As I posted on her Facebook wall, she really lit a fire on my "you know what" so I can bring my business forward...and I'm not looking back! So "THANK YOU" again Jasmine, for educating and supporting your fellow photographers and encouraging us to care about each other.

Learning from Jasmine was very inspiring. She and her team created theFIX to "help identify the weaknesses within a business, maximize entrepreneurial strengths, and outline the course of action to employ in 2012." Basically it helped create an understanding of how to grow one's business, avoid mistakes, marketing strategies and achieve the life dreamed by any photographer...to be free to take beautiful photographs and be happy with one's work and life. I've learned so much and now I've been saying I'm channeling my inner J* to ensure my business grows and moves forward so I can keep clients happy as well as my home life happy.

Many times when someone asked a question, J* would start with "This may rub you the wrong way...BUT.." and then she gave a reality check and ensured that there are many things that may hurt (breaking off a relationship with a client or vendor) along the way when you have your business, but it's better to deal with them with confidence and  to ensure you are moving forward and not moving backwards. After all, "sacrifice doesn’t guarantee success, it’s merely a prerequisite of success."

Here I am, happy as can be I'm standing next to someone I look up to (literally and figuratively!) and because of J* I'm making changes and not looking back.

Before meeting J*, me and a few fellow photographers were taking pictures in front of theFIX's backdrop and a few seconds later, in jumps Jasmine Star! I was clueless at first, but after realizing the three of us were screaming like banshees. Yes we were screaming with our mouths formed in smiles hoping someone is taking a picture lol. I think this is why Jasmine is laughing at us...or hopefully with us :-). (Jasmine Star, Cecilia Grace Mizin, Me, Janelle Rodriguez)

After getting a few pictures, I had to try Jasmine's seat. Very comfy indeed!

Jasmine Star is also Editor In Chief of EXPOSED. Here she reads excerpts from one of the articles written in the magazine, which covers a variety of subjects from Jasmine's life as a photographer.

During Jasmine's presentation, she stressed in building a very good network with other photographers. Thanks to Cassi Claire (Gardner) who created a Jasmine Star: The FIX NYC group, some of us were able to meet up, get acquainted, and put real faces other than our Facebook profile pics to the names in our group!  Here there's Christina Blanarovich, Me, Melania Timpani-Shertzer, Janelle Rodriguez and the rest of the group included (and pardon if I didn't get a pic of you or left out your names!!) Tessie Reveliotis, Arlene Chambers, Bob chambers, Cassie Claire, Tammy Cedar, Vanessa Belanovich, Allison O'Hara McCafferty, John, Phil Franchina, Michele Yacovello, Judie Zevack Castro, Kevin Mahoney, Robin Bakes, Sena Dzogbenuku Danquah, and so much more. Thank you all for making it a great night of learning, networking, and making friends!

Looking forward to a reunion with the group and those that missed the meet before The FIX NYC!

Portraits Are More Than Paper - Why photographs are very important and lasts forever....

Today I read a post by Jeanine Thurston, re-posted by so many photographers and non-photographers alike, and the letter that created the post stirred old memories that I too had to post it: http://fototails.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/a-letter-on-my-doorstep-portraits-are-more-than-paper/ After reading the letter, I cannot help but feel this person's regret of not understanding how pictures are so much more lasting than "trivial" items. Portraits and photographs  are more than a piece of paper, since it helps memorialize an event or a person or a special memory of a newborn being born or children growing up with families, a wedding, and more. From time to time I do get the "oh no! there she is again!" when I take out my camera and start photographing family and friends when we're together privately or out so I can capture those memories.  Many say their memories are in their mind and do not need photographs or videos of an event, but for me, personally, I love having a tangible visual of an event or memory with my husband, family and friends. Why do I do it? I do it because I know memories are fleeting. Getting older, my memory is not what it was years ago...and that is scary. How many times have we told ourselves I'll remember this moment forever...but later stumble upon a picture (maybe years or weeks later) taken by someone else and you truly forgot that moment occurred? I LOVE going through my pictures from time to time and remembering time spent with those I love. I have folders of digital images going back from 1999 with a miscellaneous folder where I added scanned images of older paper photographs.

Maybe some think that going overboard...and some may think its not...but each of us must do what feels right and capturing memories the way I know how feels the right way. I also take pictures because I know often time pictures are all we may have left of someone one day. A sad thought but true...and it was true for Karen L. who wrote the letter. Her letter has made this past hour an emotional roller coaster, leaving people wondering why I look like I've been crying...so here I am pretending to have a cold, but in reality I'm remembering the feeling of not having that picture I wanted and needed of someone who suddenly passed on. When my father passed away in 2007, I was creating a memorial board of him, and realized that the last picture I took with him and I alone was taken...well I couldn't find one. Honestly the last good one (not blurry or anything else) was from 2001 when I graduated college. There was one picture from my birthday party my dad threw for me at his house in 2005 that had me, him and my siblings together, and I had to cut out my siblings so I can frame that picture of me and my dad in my apartment. The picture was also blurry, but it was all I had standing next to him. Other pictures before he passed was of me taking the picture, or a group picture. Just remembering that realization made me panic. This was the eve of my father's wake and I'm scrambling to find pictures of my dad and me and I couldn't find a one.

Photographs of any event or a portrait of your family or pictures with friends are something that should not be taken for granted. For many they are not just a want or a need, but a priceless memory that can be passed on.

Thank you Jeanine for posting this letter. Karen L. and many more are in my prayers.

A classy event filled with amazing people and definitely a night to remember.

Misha Nonoo - New York City Fashion Week by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Meeting Misha Nonoo during fashion week was a colorful sight to see! New York City welcomed the highly acclaimed designer who had her show at MADE in Chelsea by the Highline. Her clothing line was truly feminine, with a touch of masculinity in a few pieces she created. Misha received her inspiration during her time in Italy and the Mediterranean. Her show, designed by Celadon & Celery Events, was filled with live Olive trees in various species. The smell and sight gave the feeling we were in Europe! See below her gorgeous creations and you can see how anyone would love to be these models wearing such fabulous clothing. Makeup was provided by MAC and the shoes were from Aldo's who both sponsored the shows held at Milk Studios. Enjoy and remember to stop by my facebook page and "like"! :-)

Kardashian Kollection SEARS launch - Leibovitz Studio - by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian along with their mom and successful manager Kris Jenner were in Chelsea yesterday, Tuesday September 6, 2011 to launch their new clothing line in over 700+ SEARS department stores. The fashion icons came dressed in their creations and were very impressed with the design created by Celadon & Celery Events and LDC (Lex Liang Design Corporation) for the event. Guests arrived even with the pouring rain, but the weather did not halt the occasion. Ben Zion from Baked by Melissa was at the event personally providing the baked goodies from the famous mini cupcake store and the Kardashian sisters were more than happy to have a few bites of the scrumptious treats.

Ben Zion, Partner and owner of Baked By Melissa designed this arrangement for the Kardashian Kollection launch event. He was my favorite man of the night especially since he loved to give us all the cupcakes and we were more than happy to oblige. Thank you Ben!A gorgeous arrangement created by Celadon & Celery Events

As previously mentioned, the Kardashians enjoyed the treats created by Baked by Melissa! So happy I was able to take home a few :-).

Joan & Melissa Rivers hosts AFSP's Annual Gala

On May 11, 2011, celebrity personalities Joan and Melissa Rivers hosted the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's annual benefit dinner and gala. Attendees came together for the Lifesavers Dinner from different backgrounds ranging from politics, science, media, entertainments and business. Each individual has been dedicated to raising the public awareness about suicide and support for the AFSP's research, education and advocacy programs. Joan and Melissa started the evening with their story of how this issue affected them directly after Joan's husband committed suicide and how mother and daughter dealt with the aftermath of such a tragic event. They continue to help others and are great supporters of AFSP with Joan being a founding member. The evening's gala was designed by Celadon & Celery and everyone was mesmerized of how the Jazz at Lincoln Center's Allen Room was transformed to a beautiful dining hall complete with cherry blossoms and creative center pieces. Bess Wyrick was on site ensuring every piece was in place for such a special occasion and once again C&C Events did an excellent job.

Another classy event at The Plaza this time with the French-American Aid for Children (FAAC). Celadon & Celery designed the event, where the FAAC honored CHANEL for their commitment to helping underprivileged children. The occasion also marks FFAC's 70th anniversary of The Bal des Berceaux, which is an elegant, black-tie affair featuring a debutante ball and live auction complete with a dinner-dance. Everyone looked glamorous in their gowns and tux and I am honored to have been there.

Celadon&Celery Event:NY Junior League Winter Ball w/ Mary J. Blige

I was truly blessed to have been a part of this wonderful event! Thank you Celadon & Celery for inviting me behind the scenes of the New York Junior League's Winter Ball at The Plaza Hotel. One of the honorees was singer/song writer and highly acclaimed celebrity Mary J. Blige  who was one of many awarded that evening, specifically for her Leadership and Excellence in helping at-risk women in New York. Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney presented Ms. Blige with the award. Celadon & Celery's work was simply fantastic and The Plaza's ballroom never looked better. The black and white theme included gorgeous centerpiece designs that varied from lampshades with hanging white orchids and flowers in bloom where rather than a usual vase, the centerpiece was encased in a black hand bag or clutch piece. Each table had a unique design, which truly created a breathtaking vibe in The Plaza ballroom making the night feel like a chic, stylish, fairy-tale event. Owner of Celadon & Celery Bess Wyrick was there to ensure each detail was set. Readers may also be interested in taking a few classes with Celadon & Celery during their floral workshops headed by Ivie Joy A                                   Agustin, the company's school director.
