Hi Anna, thank you for being with us!

Tell us a little about you.

I'm Anna Kuperberg and I live in San Francisco. I started photography in college. I majored in photography at Washington University in St. Louis and then I went to grad school and got an MFA in photography at the San Francisco Art Institute. I'm glad I did that, but I am over-educated. You do not need to get so much education to do photography, just go out and do it!

How do you describe your style?

Ordered Chaos. More and more I am looking for complicated nuanced stories. Things that have contradictions, like the delight and the weariness of having a newborn, or the love/hate moments between siblings. I like tension and bittersweet.

What or who really inspires you?

The Magnum Website. And here is one beautiful thing that I just discovered: http://siandavey.com/ongoing/looking-for-alice/

What is your best tip for photographing babies?

No props please! They are perfect just as they are. Babies like to snuggle, so they should snuggle. I don't like to see a baby in a salad bowl or on a bookshelf all alone.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital. What you might not expect is that I still embrace the traditional medium of film; in fact, it now lies at the heart of the images we create at Cooper Photography. I've encountered many milestones over the years, but what I could not have foreseen were the three notable changes that saw me move full circle:
