Dance Moms!

I am beyond excited for the Season 2 premiere of Dance Moms tonight @ 9 pm on Lifetime!  I’m still kicking myself for not coming up with this show concept. I am looking forward to my sisters dance competition this weekend in NYC.  Really wish Abby Lee Miller’s studio would attend this one.  I’ll keep you posted if she does.

Enjoy this interview with Fox that she did about the show. Abby Lee Miller interview

I know I recently posted a dance space location but in honor of dance moms the location of the day of course has to be a dance studio.  This one is in NYC and available to rent for film/commercial/and photography.  Message me for booking information.

There are many different rooms available but these are my two personal favorites and the best for filming sound wise and space wise.


Brick Wall Cafe


Happy Saturday!  Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend.  Came across this local cafe.  Really like the ambiance of this location with the brick walls and natural lighting.  Feel free to contact me to book this location for a shoot.

Dance to express, not to impress

Happy Hump Day 🙂

I was reminiscing on my past 18 years of dance.  I miss dancing my heart out day to day at the studio, and the dance competitions we would work so hard for.  However, I still incorporate the art of dance in my life whether it be choreographing, or taking a class from time to time.

So today I would like to share a beautiful dance studio I came across in Manhattan.  I scouted this place for a dance film.

Cookie Talk

Location of the Day

With all this cookie talk I figured this would be the ideal location to feature today. This location is perfect for cooking shows, commercials, and photography.  The color scheme, and atmosphere gives the image of a picture perfect meal or treat being prepared.

The kitchen includes a  • Prep area • Viking 6 burner range top • Cook tops: 4 burner gas and 4 burner electric • Sub Zero refrigerator • Bosch dishwasher • GE Profile wall mount stove.

With the holidays right around the corner I have been doing some early shopping.  I came across this mug which makes having cookies and milk a whole new experience.

Face Mug : $18.00 on

Found a recipe which will make the face mug gift complete. Homemade Oreos!  <<<— Recipe


Hump Day Epiphany

I am a little late in the day on this post but Happy Hump Day!  As I do every Wednesday I grab a latte from Starbucks with an alter ego name.  Shout out to Britney Medich who is following through with the trend. 🙂  Today I went with the name Tiff the name originates from Greece and “Tifinie” is used in Old French to mean “Epiphany.”  I guess you can say I had an Epiphany this week and decided that this name would be appropriate for today’s latte.

Today’s featured location is located in Central Jersey.  Reminds me of Boardwalk Empire. Contact me for more info.

On Location – Thrift Shop

Last Night was my latest on location work for the film “Three Holes, Two Brads, and a Smoking Gun.”  I found the thrift shop location for one of the scenes in this movie.  It was a little tricky finding a thrift shop that didn’t have clothing, but I managed to find one which fit perfectly with the script.  It was an over night shoot from 6 pm till 4 am.  Such an amazing crew of hard working people.  Look forward to the final result 🙂

Here are some pictures of last night!

Actor Joaquim de Almeida

Check out the IMDB Page “Three Holes, Two Brads, and a Smoking Gun”


I was on and came across this post  Link_Essential I would always wear this as a little girl.

Funny that I came across this after speaking to my friend Brit about about the other Violets perfume which I would also wear as a kid. I say we bring it back in style!

Speaking of Violets, here is a park in NJ I passed through which is absolutely beautiful.  The land has 96 acres of specialty gardens surrounded by 1000 acres of woodlands.  The property has a beautiful Manor designed in the mid-1920’s.  The manor consists of an entrance hall and stairwell, dining room, breakfast room, a great hall, a drawing room, a study, and a library.  Available for film and photography message me for more info.

Wine, Dine, and Shoot

This location located in North NJ has a Mediterranean feel, with an indoor and an outdoor patio area where lighting can easily be adjusted.  This is a B.Y.O.B so feel free to bring a bottle and get your wine health benefits.  If you need hookah to set the scene this place can provide you with that as well as Mediterranean cuisine.  This cafe is colorful and inviting yet very versatile depending on what it is that you are looking for.  The outdoor seating area is my favorite it can set an intimate setting as well as one of drama.  The location is available for film/commercial/photography.  Contact me with any questions you may have. 

East Coast Castle

After my Marie Antoinette inspiration yesterday I figured I would share this location with you.  This is a 28 room stone castle overlooking the Hudson River. Situated on an acre of land, the gardens feature stone pathways, a vine-covered gazebo, Italian Renaissance marble benches, and a monumental French Neoclassical fountain.  It is available for film, photo and video shoots.  For rates and more information contact me!
