National Nurse Week is going on and in my opinion it should be National Nurse YEAR ❤️
I’ve met so many amazing Mount Sinai nurses during the past weeks and one of the things I noticed is the incredible team work and support system they have built for each other. Thank you to all the nurses out there, I am eternally grateful for your work.

Celebrating National Nurses Week! I met Simone at Mount Sinai Morningside where she has been doing an incredible job caring for Covid-19 patients since Day1.
Today and every day I salute all the healthcare workers on the frontlines. I am forever grateful for what you do ❤️🙏🏻

I just found out that it is National Hairdresser Appreciation Day! What better time to share a portrait of my beautiful and uber talented friend Nina Dimachki. We created this image during a Pureology Training in Arizona, just before the lockdown started. I just love the timeless look and feel that the portrait has. It’s a reminder of different times. Let’s all count our blessings - stay safe my friends 💕

The beautiful Mawa again - I have so many photos of this lovely human, I couldn’t decide. I am so looking forward to the days when I can have shoots like that again with lots of laughs, hugs and high fives.

I met this beautiful soul a few weeks back when the world was still in a much different place. Thank you, Mawa Sidibe for your infectious laugh and pure energy.
Thank you to my brother Antoon Taghon for introducing me to this gem of a human.

The unrecognizable atrium at Mount Sinai during the #covid-19 pandemic. Pods with hospital beds have been constructed throughout the building to create additional space for patients. Visitors are no longer allowed in the hospital to keep everyone safe. Kudos to all the fantastic work that’s being done here to fight this virus!

I will be updating that album regularly.

I've been (safely) documenting the extraordinary efforts of my hospital client Mount Sinai. For obvious reasons I am NOT anywhere near Covid-19 patients. I do hope my work will help highlight the hard working individuals within the health system who are my true heroes. Everyone I've met has been extremely humble, gracious and brave. I am in awe of what they accomplish day in and day out.
I added an album with selected imagery to my website - https://www.claudiapaul.com/covid-19
This will be updated as I return to shoot more in the coming days.

It’s my favorite month of the year - Women’s History Month !! These badass women are all super talented French Horn players - you can find them individually at the New York Philharmonics, in Broadway shows and concerts around the world. In their free time they like to conquer the world as Genghis Barbie and bring us funky fresh tunes :-)

I decided to have a Soleidy Mendez Social Media takeover. Because - Soleidy!
She’s my most photographed headshot client and above all a dear friend and creative collaborator. We are both perfectionists at heart and work hard on pursuing our passion. This shoot was magic. Tried out some new lighting and Soleidy’s connection was amazing from the first to the last frame. .

LOVE IS…Fabiola and Nick!

Fabiola and Nick met about 2 years ago - they fell in love hard, got married a year later and now have a beautiful baby girl together. These guys have a special energy and I find their love honest and real.
On a side note Fabiola is an amazing artist and photographer whose work just leaves me breathless! You should follow her.
Thank you for being part of the project and sharing your energy with me!

LOVE IS...Wendy and Bobby!

I don’t even know how to describe these guys. They are a big part of my chosen family and truthfully inspired the beginning of the project. Wendy and Bobby are polar opposites in some ways but they always find their center together. Their love for each other is unconditional and without fear. They fully support each other while letting each person be who they really are. And they have been in LOVE for 42 years - a little longer than I have been on this earth!! Let that sink in...
Love you guys ! Thanks for being in my life.

January has been such a whirlwind month and I’m playing catch-up!
So happy to present another amazing couple from my series:

LOVE IS...Rodney and Yelena!

These guys do it all - they are filmmakers, artists and have been raising 4 beautiful kids - but in my eyes have never lost sight of who they are as individuals and a couple. I salute you and love you dearly!

And for a little back story on making the most out of failure:
I photographed them a while back for the project and was unusually absent-minded and frazzled the days following the shoot. So for the first time ever in my many years as a working photographer, I managed to screw up somewhere during the back-up process and overwrote the whole session on my hard drive! Tried to recover it for days but all was lost. It was a huge and humbling lesson for me as far as accepting my own mistakes. The beauty of it is that my friends said yes to a reshoot without hesitation. And we were able to recreate the magic. So in the end, I am just going to keep my eyes on the big picture.

01/15/2020

When my friend and very talented photographer Joel approached me about having his portrait done by me I was both excited and a bit nervous. I find that when we photograph fellow photographers, the stakes are always a bit higher. But it’s always a good challenge!
We collaborated and threw some ideas around and here’s one of the images Joel chose and I also love. With his permission, I want to quote a few of the words he used to describe the portraits when he received the final images.

“….they feel honest and truthful, Claudia…
And these photographs will define me for several years to come
….I also told you that I wanted a portrait that expresses how I feel, being myself, right now, at this time in life. Success.”
Thank you, Joel for trusting my vision!

Another shot from my session with Jacqui Kerrod. I am eternally jealous of her rocking an electric harp. Way back in my violin days, I always dreamt about playing an electric violin. Sadly I never got to be as cool as Jacqui !!

I have a soft spot for boss babes who are beautiful, smart and so talented. And who wouldn’t get excited about having not one, but two harps in the studio ? Unfortunately we ran out of time and couldn’t have an impromptu studio concert, but I hope to see Jacqui live at some point.

LOVE IS…Anthony and Yoshiko!

I met Yoshiko years back when I photographed her for a different project. We bonded over being immigrants and artists and trying to make it in this big bad city. Yoshiko has been an amazing supporter of my work and I call her my “Number 1 Fan”.
When I announced the LOVE IS Project she suggested to be part of it with her husband Anthony. It was absolutely lovely to have them both in my studio. Anthony and Yoshiko are newly married and have been in a relationship for a little over a year. I was so touched when they told me how much this photo session meant to them since they’ve never had a professional photographer take portraits of the two of them before.

LOVE IS…Christina and Yasemin!

Spending time with these fantastic women was such a treat. After an hour it felt like we were old friends. When we did the photoshoot they had just gotten married after being together for about 5 1/2 years.
I absolutely love the way they express themselves both as individuals and as a loving unity.
Thank you guys, for sharing your love with me!

LOVE IS...Neil and Marsha !!
They told me their beautiful story and it just made my day. Together for 10 years, they found their perfect match late in life - at a point where some people stop believing in finding true love.
Thank you both - you’re an inspiration 💕

Artists are always a blast to photograph. Throwback to that time when I worked with @billclaps at his studio in LIC - using a projector and his art to create a unique portrait.
