|Now that it's getting colder, let me take you back to the warmth of summer - to a magical place called Fire Island. I had the good fortune to be invited this summer, to photograph Mark, Marilyn, Scarlett, Chuck, and Veronica at their summer home on Fire Island. What a beautiful place. When Mark told me there were no cars on the island, I was curious as to how I would get from the ferry to their home. Wagons. Everything is transported with little wagons. Luckily, the ferry, the house, and the beach were all within walking distance from each other and made the adventure that much easier. It's quite a place. When you stand in the middle of the "street" you can look to the left and the right and see water on both sides. So cool.
Mark and Marilyn were so hospitable and their three children were absolutely amazing to photograph. Add a wide open, beautiful beach to the mix, and I was in heaven.
Thank you all for letting me experience your Fire Island. It really is an incredible place! xoxo
|How did I get so lucky! I have had the honor to photograph not one, but two sisters from this family. This is a very special family to me, and when Alex contacted me to photograph her wedding, I was so psyched! Alex and Dylan are beyond awesome and their wedding was absolutely ideal. It had everything from a backyard barbeque with Pete the Butcher to a mobile bar with The Mobile Pub. It was so laid back and fit perfectly with Alex and Dylan's personalities.
I have the biggest smile on my face thinking back to their wedding day. Everybody was so happy and relaxed. Due to the amazing talent of DJ James Shanahan, the dancing never stopped. I think even my sidekick for the day, Kelly B and I might have moved and shook out on the dance floor for just a bit too :)
Alex and Dylan, you are completely stuck with me now! you are both so fantastic and I look forward to the next time when we can all hang out :)
To see more of their wedding day, head down under the last photo to see their slideshow.
|So many laughs, so much energy, and an abundance of love. That's what this session was all about. I met this beautiful family for the first time at
Cranberry Lake Preserve in Westchester, NY. Although we were not able to explore much of the area due to a locked gate, we made due with a small part of land at the front of the park that fit everyone. It worked well.
The cousin love was evident as the kids had a blast together. The giggles were contagious! At the young ages they were, it was best to get them the way that made them most comfortable, which meant jumping up on stumps and letting them pose themselves. Letting kids be kids is so important and makes getting the best expressions that much easier.
Thank you all for being so much fun to photograph!
|I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family in one of my favorite places - the Meigs Point area in Hammonasset State Park . It was the perfect fit for these three. Since Layla is not yet up for exploring the beach, this private little area was shaded and and cool enough for her and provided an ideal happy place for all of us. Layla was so engaged and having fun, but who wouldn't with Amelia and Harrison as the parents! These two are awesome!
I love everything about this family and am so honored that they let me photograph their love at this moment in time.
Thank you Amelia, Harrison, and Layla! you were all so wonderful! xoxo
