Happy Halloween from everyone at Ruby Bird! Our own Marcus McDonald shoots performance artist Abby Lloyd in collaboration with nail artist Juan Alvear for Coeval Magazine. Check out the Sassy Waitress, Sassy Star, Sassy Comedian, and Sassy Madame below.

“Hey Sugar, I’ll be your Sassy Waitress today. What’s on the menu you ask? How 'bout a big ol’ plate a hot mess with a side of attitude? There comes a time in every gal’s life when she’s gonna have to serve somebody.. and when that time comes she’s gonna serve it up cold and mushy! Talk to the hand, because this pretty face just ain’t listening.”

Portraits for Good with Dan Bannister

On August 3rd and 4th, Photographer Dan Bannister will be taking portraits...for GOOD! With a donation to the New York Food Bank, you can get a FREE portrait shot by a world-class photographer. We are honored to be able to host this event for a great cause and happy to have Dan as a part of the Ruby Bird community.

"A few years ago I started an annual tradition of inviting people from the creative industry to come in and sit for a portrait in exchange for a donation to the local food bank. We call it “Portraits for Good”. The concept is that most people don’t really have a great or interesting portrait they’re satisfied with for Linkedin, social media, Tinder etc etc so, getting a chance to help the foodbank and get a great portrait is a win/win."

Donate here!  Check out the portraits and behind-the-scenes fun from previous Portraits for Good events here!

Space is limited, so register today! RSVP with Dan Bannister at

Event will be held at Ruby Bird Studio 67 West St. 5th Floor Brooklyn, NY 11211
