Owen's 1st Birthday Portraits and Cake Smash, New York City Family Photography

I can't believe Owen is 1!  Over the last year I have been photographing my cousin's baby Owen once a month.  It has been an amazing exercise for me getting to photograph him at all these different stages and so fun because I've gotten to focus on more of the lifestyle moments which I love so much.  For his 1 year we decided to shoot a little in my neighborhood of Tribeca to capture some city streets and then we headed inside the studio for a cake smash.  He was not at all interested in eating the cake, but he was so adorable mushing it around!

West Village and Tribeca Engagement Session, New York City Engagement Photography

Combine an adorable couple who are super sweet and fun to hang out with a hysterical black lab with soulful eyes and you get a very happy photographer and an awesome engagement session!  I had so much fun with Andrew and Gretchen (and their adorable dog Revis) on their engagement session all around the West Village and Tribeca.  It was one of the first slightly warmer Spring days where it was actually possible to be outside for more than 10 minutes without freezing and we spent the afternoon walking all around their neighborhood in the West Village with their pup and then headed down to Tribeca to snap a few iconic NYC shots on the Brooklyn Bridge.  Revis was very spirited, which made for some great photos, and even funnier outtakes.  Come on who can't resist a huge face smooch from a black lab?  I'm so excited for this wedding in June, I know it's going to be gorgeous and if it's anything like Andrew and Gretchen themselves it's going to be a lot of fun!

Owen's 11 Month Portraits, New York City Family Photography

I've been photographing my adorable little cousin Owen once a month since he was born.  It's been such an amazing experience getting to watch him grow each month from a tiny little baby into a little toddler with his own personality shining through.  We've been stuck inside for the last few months with the polar vortex beating down on NYC, but we finally had a day in the 50s and headed to Central Park for some fun 11 month portraits!
