Family Lifestyle Photography, Greenwich CT

I love the warm weather we're finally getting and all my shoots are heading outdoors, but one of the great things about winter is it allows me to have the opportunity to shoot some wonderful slice of life sessions, which are always my favorite.  As a documentary photographer I love to shoot beautiful moments of realness- people hanging out in their homes or at the park just being themselves.  This special shoot was exactly that- a fun day of play for this adorable 1-year-old out in CT.  We read books, played with his beautiful dog and went for a walk in the park. 

When I made the switch from documentary to portrait photography it was to take photos like these.  Photos that I wish I had of my childhood.  Beautiful slices of life to look back on years from now when everyone is old and grown and smile.

Central Park and Upper West Side Maternity Session, New York City

I'm very excited to share this session!  I loved shooting these very special maternity photos for Rachel and Zac.  Is she not the most gorgeous glowing pregnant woman?  So I may be biased because she's my cousin, but I think she looks completely stunning!  I was so happy that I got to photograph this very special time in their lives right before their little one comes- the last time their family photos consists of two people instead of three!  We shot in their beautiful home on the UWS and then walked to Central Park for a couple photos as the sun set in the distance.  They are so in love and perfect for each other that every photo made me smile!  Can't wait to shoot baby boy's newborn photos!

Central Park Proposal, New York City

There must be something in the air because I have been shooting non stop proposals !  It's so much fun to get to be a part of all of these important moments and document them to tell a little proposal story.  David and Chloe were visiting the city from TX and while on what Chloe thought was a photo tour through Central Park, a guitarist appeared out of the woods and David got down on one knee and proposed while I was there to capture the whole thing.  The proposal was planned by the wonderful Heart Bandits and was a pleasure to capture for David and Chloe!  Congrats you two!
