Brittney & Amanda

I was introduced to Brittney from a good friend of mine who I actually met through a photographers mentor class. This photo shoot is one that I will forever cherish because it was my first experience with summer weather and seeing my clients stick through extremely hot temperatures to make sure we got the shots perfect just proves that anything is possible. It was one of the most humorist sessions as these lovely ladies came with comedy in hand.

Rashawn & Kelly

You know that friend that you made in Middle School that was kind of a class clown and was a genuinely funny and kind person? And somehow, over the years, even from a distance, you remain friends. That person for me is Rashawn. We met in our youthful years and with the help of social media have always been able to keep in touch. When he announced he and his partner, the beautiful Kelly, were having their first child, I was beyond ecstatic for them. Being the kind and supportive friend that he is, he reached out to me to see if I would be interested in doing their maternity shoot (and a baby shower so stay tuned for that one) and obviously I said DUH! OF COURSE!
We met at one of my favorite places in New Jersey just as the end of the cherry blossom season was approaching and there were several remnants still lingering. Rashawn introduced me to his partner, Kelly, who within moments I not only connected but felt like I had known her for just as long as Rashawn. After a decade of friendship, I am so glad that I was able to experience a part of their journey into parenthood. It was a beautiful, sweet, and truly serene photoshoot and the amount of affection and love displayed only shows what loving parents they will be.
Lots of love to them and their bundle of joy on the way.
XO- Lacey.

Natasha & Robs Maternity

Engagment, Lifestlye, Maternity, Newborn

Natasha found me through a mutual friend I photographed back in December. She reached out and new exactly what kind of maternity session she wanted, something elegant and on the beach. She was interested from day one and I was so grateful she reached out and wanted me to photograph her. Pregnancy feels like an eternity when you are in it and a blink of an eye when you look back on it, but it is the only time when you and your child are one, when you are at your most goddess like. It deserves to be captured as the magical beautiful time that it is, especially because it doesn’t always feel that way.  Pregnant women deserve to be pampered and made to see the beauty in themselves and their incredible, life creating bodies. They also told me that this was a miracle baby, because Natasha was told she wouldn’t be able to have children. So this session really hit home because I wanted to make sure that she can look back on these photos and bring her back to this day. I could photograph maternity all day every day and be a very happy women. seeing the love and anticipation on the faces of Natasha & Rob and getting to capture this moment for them before they embark on the greatest adventure of their lives is such   a special gift and I am so grateful I got the opportunity to photograph these two love bugs.

Millie & Marks Engagment

Engagment

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.
