When my good friend of over a decade enlisted me to be their maternity photographer it absolutely elated me because it instills a belief that my craft is being recognized. It was a lovable and sweet session that Jhane and Edwin allowed me to be apart of. The session took place in September *Cue Earth, Wind, and Fire ! LOL* Yes- obviously I am blogging late but better late than never! September is my absolute favorite month of the year because it beckons the crisp warm but breezy air which is perfect for outdoor shoots. The sun was settling in and the light was beginning to fade but the perfect weather and setting allowed us to take some truly marvelous photos. Jhane and Edwin made for wonderful models and we had a great time. The moments that we captured were memorable and magic and we laughed and giggled about all to come for their baby boy on the way. Stay tuned for his baby debut photos !
There is something so special and significant for your first child and I have been blessed enough to capture Katy’s process through its entirety. What began through simple and quaint announcement photos and stunning maternity photos has finally led to the most exciting part— the NEWBORN SESSION! It is safe to say that I was super stoked because I had been photographing baby Ryan since he was about the size of an avocado at 16 weeks. Katy, who is a very close friend, asked me to be apart of the many firsts that came with baby Ryan and I was so honored and humbled to be apart of this journey. Now, if you have had a chance to see Katy’s Announcement or Maternity, you will have seen how absolutely drop dead gorgeous she is and what a natural she is in front of the lens. So, it is without a shadow of a doubt that baby Ryan has acquired the same. He was glowing and served face for the entire shoot and is just as gorgeous as his mom. I cannot wait for all the candid photos of him to come!
Another marvelous newborn session took place in New Jersey. A couple of weeks ago, I had a scheduled session to photograph an adorably sweet baby boy named Daniel. He was perfectly precious and full of energy as soon as I arrived. After quite some time, and a few happy photos of him awake, his mother and I were able to get him down for a nap. Once asleep I captured him in every angle I could to highlight each detail from the wrinkle in his smile to the fresh flakes coming off of his skin. With every baby I photograph, I feel so much joy as I watch them through my lens. I cannot wait to capture as many babies as I can to keep that feeling going!
Everything I aspire for in a client is representative of Katy & Ali. As a
fairly new photographer many potential clients will decide they want
photos and then last minute cancel or want to reschedule. It is especially
hard because you know you will have to work around their schedule, even
if it interferes with yours. But then you get clients like Katy & Ali. Who
not only keep their appointments, but you do not even have to remind
them because THEY remind you! For their photo shoot we decided to
head out to Jersey so that we can take the maternity photos amongst the
beautiful cherry blossom trees, buttttttt – they had outgrown. We were
about a week too late! Luckily it is still a very beautiful park and still had
some great scenery that allowed for a gorgeous backdrop for this
The best part about this photo shoot is when they would
whisper things to one another and share an intimate moment or laugh and
it allowed me to catch them off guard and capture a beautiful shot. I will be forever grateful that these two allowed me to be apart of a lifetime memory, to see the love they have for each other is truly amazing. im so happy to be apart of this journey and be able to deliver a gallery that they can look back on years from now and reminisce.
This was one of my first engagement shoots I had done after moving back to NYC. It was hard to relocate and start my clientele over again but when Millie contacted me and told me her love story, it reminded me that with dedication nothing is as hard as it seems. Millie told me that Mark proposed to Millie on the Coney Island Boardwalk so it seemed befitting that we would have their engagement photo shoot be on the beach on Coney Island. This was such a fun photo shoot because they exuded so much love and happiness and the camera absorbed all their joyfulness and it is most certainly visibile in their pictures. Thank you both for letting me capture such a beautiful part of your love story.
