Spring in Central Park // NYC Family Photography

For this family shoot in Central Park the primary goal was to get portraits of baby boy for his 1st Birthday invitations. His older sisters were great helpers getting their brother to giggle for the camera, and after we were done with their brother's portraits the girls did some tree climbing and impromptu nature art-making with flowers and pinecones. So glad spring is here at last!!

2014 Favorites: Engagement, Wedding and Family Photography

Oh boy, prepare yourself for a long blog post -- I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite images of the year! I had such a good time looking back through the year's photos and was reminded again how lucky I am to capture moments of love and beauty for a living. A sincere thank you to all the amazing couples and families whom I worked with this year -- you make my job a dream come true. Here's to a happy, healthy and beautiful 2015. xoxo

Long Island City Family Photography

This young fellow loves all things bridge/tunnel/train related, so his father and I thought a great place for an afternoon photoshoot would be the Long Island City waterfront and Gantry Plaza Park because of its marvelous skyline and bridge views. Our afternoon ended with a stroll across the Pulaski Bridge, which provoked a huge grin from the budding "railfan"!
