Lorentzen Family

Who: The Lorentzens

What: Fun, beachy family portrait session

Where: Repulse Bay Beach, Hong Kong

While visiting my sister in Hong Kong, I also had the chance to do a fun beach session with my sister's teaching partner and her adorable family. Mom Laura is a music teacher and you can tell a love of music runs in their family by how excited their 11-month baby got by clapping and singing! What a cutie!!

Baby Eloise at Three Months

Who: Eloise Orlee

What: Springtime baby portraiture of my 3-month old niece

I went to visit my brother, sister-in-law and baby niece in the spring just in time for Eloise to begin really smiling! We figured out that she loves getting her lips tickled as a sure fire way to get these adorable looks! What a cutie!

Solan Rath Family

Who: Danielle, Rob and baby Nova Joy

What: In-home newborn session

Where: Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

Allow me to introduce you to my sister’s beautiful family! My niece Nova Joy was born in Hong Kong (where my sister has lived and worked for the last five years) and I got to visit them when Nova was a month old. I love her to pieces and am so proud of my sister and my brother-in-law for being amazing new parents!

Stark Family

Who: Lauren, Scott and baby Jo

What: Bookish in-home family and baby portrait session

Where: Seattle, WA

Lauren and I have been friends since 4th grade and I couldn’t be happier to photograph her family for her. She and her husband and baby live in beautiful Seattle and I was so excited to visit them and meet her baby when she was about three months old! Jo (short for Josephine) shares a name with one of our favorite literary heroines – Jo March from Little Women – so it was only fitting that we incorporated the book into their portrait session. Jo loves to listen to reading aloud, be it a picture book or book for grownups. What a little smartie!

Czuba Tobin Family

Who: Kim, Nathan and baby Vera

What: In-home newborn family portrait session

Where: Chicago, IL

Kim and I were assigned to be roommates our first year at Oberlin College back in 2002. Little did I know we would still be friends 16 years later! Now she is a mama - I'm vkelmpt! I feel so lucky that we’ve got to share the big moments in life together. Here she is with her husband and the adorable Vera in their home in Chicago. Vera is such an even- tempered baby – I barely heard her cry at all during the four days I stayed at their house. I can’t wait to visit again soon!

Solan DeBoinville Family

Who: My brother, sister-in-law and new baby niece

What: In-home newborn family portrait session

Where: Washington, DC

I got to meet my baby niece Eloise for the first time when she turned one month old. She is a tiny bean and we all love her very much!

Lee Huang Family

Who: Jen, Lawrence and Ava

What: Outdoor family portrait session

Where: Gantry Plaza in LIC, Queens

I’ve known Jen since we were kids and I’ve been lucky enough to capture her wedding and newborn photos! Now she and her family are planning to move to California and they wanted some photos capturing the NYC skyline. Gantry Plaza in LIC is a great option since it offers great views and isn’t as touristy as DUMBO. I will miss this family a lot! Good luck on your next big adventure!

Soukup Family

Who: Maita, Jake and toddler Liam

What: Outdoor summer family portrait session

Where: White Clay Creek State Park in Newark, DE

Maita and I have been friends since we were kids and both grew up in the same home town. I was so happy to photograph her adorably rambunctious toddler Liam in one of my favorite local parks. Liam had energy to spare and certainly didn’t mind running around in the mid-summer’s heat! We ended the session by getting custard and water ice (a Delaware summer dessert speciality) at Rita’s Water Ice. What a fun summer afternoon!

Filley Family

Who: Chris, Alexis and baby Sofia

What: In-home newborn session

Where: Park Slope, Brooklyn

I photographed this lovely couple’s engagement and wedding and I was so happy to photograph them with their baby daughter when she was just two weeks old! It's such an honor to go into the home of a couple that you've known for years and to not only capture them as they are now but see the past images you've done for them hanging up on the walls! I was absolutely thrilled to see that these lovely folks had a drawing of one of their engagement photos a friend had made for them right above their bed! Swipe right to see the original two photos hanging on the wall. ❤️❤️

Picciano Family

Who: Picciano Family

What: Fall family portraits

Where: Liberty State Park and family’s home in Jersey City

I first met this family when I photographed their daugher’s first birthday and was happy to capture these fall family portraits about a year later. What a gorgeous fall afternoon and family! This toddler was all about giggling, moving and grooving and had such an infectious smile! We started out in Libery Park to enjoy the beautiful fall colors and finished up with some fun jumping on the bed shots at their home.

Silvan Family

Who: The Silvans

What: Family portraits

Where: Family’s home in CT

I’ve known this family since 2009 and have photographed many happy occasions for them over the years (including both bat mitzvahs for their daughters). I went up to their country house for a fun summer outdoor portrait session and the whole family looked radiant!

Stege Family 1st Birthday Portraits

Who: Stege family

What: 1st Birthday Baby Portraits

Where: Central Park, NYC

For this family shoot in Central Park the primary goal was to get portraits of baby boy for his 1st Birthday party 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!!
