|When all you wanted was a headshot for business and I talk you into bringing the family along :)
I met with Carolyn, Matt, Madeline, Dashiell, and Henry at a beautiful park near their home in New York City. What a gorgeous and kind family!
Although it all started with a simple headshot request, it quickly morphed into family photos and why not! Madeline had just come back from College, the boys were around, and because I photograph later in the day, work hours were not an issue. Fantastic! we had everyone.
I love finding these little nooks where we always "seem" to have the place to ourselves. Sometimes I can't believe we're in New York City - where are all the people? haha!
What a joy it was to not only get the headshots taken care of but to be able to create an album for Carolyn of her whole family together - what a memory for her!
In this digital age, it's easy to rely on our smartphones to capture every moment. Yet, there's something unique and, even magical, about having a professional family photographer there to capture your family's essence. The lighting, the backdrop, the guidance through comfortable and natural poses, these are just a few reasons to elevate your experience with a professional family photographer.
You're family is way too important to settle on less than the best!

|Central Park in the heart of New York City is a place that holds a special kind of lush green magic inside a busy and noisy cityscape.
I recently had the privilege of photographing Liana, Michael, and their charming 4-year-old son, Timothy, in Shakespeare Garden. This corner of Central Park provided the ideal backdrop for a memorable family photo session.
Liana, Michael, and their son Timothy, had a great time exploring Shakepeare Garden. The photographs from the session are a testament to the genuine love and happiness shared by them.
If you're considering a family photo session, I highly recommend exploring this corner of Central Park. Liana, Michael, and Timothy's session in Shakespeare Garden is a beautiful example of what can be achieved in this stunning location, and I'm grateful to have been a part of it.
|There's something truly magical about early morning sessions. Everything is quieter, dewier, and gentler. I'm so used to photographing families before sunset so, when Emily and BJ asked for an early morning spot, I was excited to try something different.
Their new home in Greenwich, CT had a big beautiful yard which was perfect for our session. Little Harrison, with his handsome face, tousled hair, and incredible smile, was able to explore and look for dandelions while his baby brother Grant enjoyed being smothered with his moms kisses. What a cute family!
Thank you Emily and BJ for letting me photograph this new chapter in your lives. It was an honor and a joy for me!
|Family is a beautiful word that encompasses love, joy, and togetherness.
I had the honor of helping Kim, Eric, Kendall, and Luke hold on to these memories together through their family photo session.
Kim and Eric's home in Southampton provided the perfect backdrop for their photos. The atmosphere exuded warmth and tranquility. Even though it was very early Spring, we were able to find beauty in the landscape that hadn't fully woken up.
Their family photo session was a testament to the power of love, togetherness, and cherished memories. It encapsulated the genuine moments of joy, laughter, and playfulness that make this family unique.
Kim and Eric expressed their gratitude for the experience, knowing that these precious photos would serve as a timeless reminder of their love and the beautiful bond they shared as a family. It was a day filled with laughter, silliness, and heartfelt connections and now, they have a gorgeous album to look back at this time for years to come!
Thank you Kim, Eric, Kendall, and Luke for being so incredible to photograph and be with!
|Have you ever been so fortunate to meet someone whose beauty, spirit, and kindness are so infectious that you instantly feel like friends? That’s how I felt after meeting Raffaella for her photoshoot. She is one of the most wonderful people I have had the honor of photographing. We had such a great time!
We met at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and made our way to the High Line. With its elevated views of Manhattan and almost-endless photo opportunities, it’s no surprise why it's such a popular spot!
Raffaella was a total natural in front of the camera. Since her family lives in Paris, Raffaella chose to do this session on her own while she was in for meetings and had a break in between them. She wanted memories of her time in the city since she had had lived there before her move to Paris. It was such an honor to be able to do these photos for her.
The session with Raffaella was truly an unforgettable experience! Her wonderful spirit will stay with me forever as these photos will stay with her.
Thank you so much Raffaella for showing me this gem of a spot in New York City! and now, I can say I've been to the new Restoration Hardware restaurant :)
