I’ve been itching to photograph a Daddy + Me session. As much as I adore documenting mother’s I’ve been wanting an intimate session that captures the love of fatherhood. So when I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph Mo and his son, Hunter, there was no way I was saying no.
Our day started with some brisk air, which I was worried was going to be a little bit too cold for Hunter. We decided to shoot full force right under the sun to keep warm, which ended up making things perfect, while I promoted Dad and little man to run around and play.
Once Hunter started skipping, chasing daddy and playing tag, his shyness quickly faded.
What a great mini session with father and son. As always, I’m honored to be that fly on the wall with my camera. You don’t always need a special occasion to hire a photographer, it’s those little movements that matter the most.

Completely swooning over this dreamy engagement session with Patrick + Sade.
Let me tell you, I was so honored to be the one to capture this couple’s love. I used to work with Sade at a non-profit last year, and she and I bonded immediately. All our lunches were spent together gossiping and talking about our love life (which mine is a disaster), God, and practically hashing out situations from other coworkers in the office. It was the best hour of my 9-5.
Now Sade is happily living in North Carolina and it’s safe to say that I miss her and our talks. I told her when she comes to visit, she better make some time for me. Little did I know that I was going to greet her with open arms, and her with a big old rock on her finger. I was so ecstatic for her and quickly told her she needs to get her things together so I can document this newest chapter of her life.
Meeting Patrick and seeing Sade be so comfortable and silly with him, only showed me how much love they have for each other. Which only made my job behind the camera so much easier. Sade was a little nervous at first, but once I played a little music for her to relax, we were in the groove. This session is easily once of my favorites.
Thank you so much for trusting me to document your love. I wish you many years of happiness.
If you’re interested in your own engagement session, or if you want to document your love with your spouse, please feel free to reach out to me. I’d love to be part of the process.
You know that feeling where you’re somewhere new, and all restrictions go out the door? Well, that was definitely my mindset for this vacation. The twins were out and breathing! I guess they wanted to feel that Bermudian breeze. Getting around Bermuda was pretty easy, not only was everyone extremely helpful and friendly…. the offline map I downloaded before landing has been on point! (See more tips for traveling here.) I’m roaming around everywhere like this is my home town. Except there are no angry New Yorkers anywhere, yay!
Kat and I roamed Saint George’s, really wanting to see the famous unfinished church. It has these gorgeous archways with no ceiling covering anything. The beautiful blue sky shines between each pillar. The church was never finished and it’s now used for events like weddings…. check this out. I’m sure it’s a pretty penny, but those wedding pictures will be completely worth it! (Look at me talking, like I even have a boo) We tried our best to peak through different archways. We couldn’t really get in. We ran over to St. Peter’s Church real quick, where I figured my boobs needed to be covered a bit.. luckily for me Kat had a shirt I could throw over my dress before going in. The church seemed old and small. Soon enough we were running back to Town Hall. We saw a posting for a glass-bottom boat tour and we wanted every single part of it. We were escorted to the boat that was waiting for us, already inside were two ladies who we found out later were from Jersey. We also met Philip, aka as Phoopa and his skipper. Oh my, guys… let me tell you how amazing this experience was. The wind was blowing in our faces, the little droplets of water hit our skin, the sun is beaming, the music is blasting while we’re in the open sea. We stop by a drive though sort of thing, but for boats. Kat and I order a 6 pack of beer. The girls across from us do the same after thinking about it twice. Phoopa gives us some history about Bermuda, and then proceeds to tell us why he’s considered everyone’s uncle. After a few minutes of spending time with him, I can see exactly why. He is so endearing and his energy is just gravitating. In the water we see the famous golden mermaid, it’s a tiny statue that sticks out of the water. Phoopa doesn’t really explain how it got there, and once I got home and started googling, I had no luck either. My only guess is that it’s from one of the shipwrecks, and that tiny piece just happens to be sticking out. There are so many shipwrecks here, I had so much fun trying to find different boats in the water. I’m sure it wasn’t that fun for the poor sailors who had to abandon ship. Phoopa kept playing Chronixx’s song, I Can…. this was the first time I heard it.. and it wasn’t the last. The song was on repeat the whole time and I wasn’t complaining. By the time the 3-hour tour was over, Kat and I knew all the lyrics. It was so catchy! When the tour was over, Phoopa dropped us off at The Grotto Bay Resort. Our Airbnb host provided us with towels, and luckily for us, it matched the hotel’s perfectly. Which only meant we blended right in. We walked about 15 feet until Kat realized she forgot her phone on the boat. She had left it charging near the captain’s steering wheel. We remembered Phoopa had mentioned he had an evening cruise pick up, and we ran back to luckily see him there. He put on his favorite song and we danced while at the dock. He invited us back into the water, and mentioned how much he liked our energy, this sunset cruise will be on the house… or (cough cough on the boat) We gladly said yes, and hopped right back in the boat! Though we didn’t get to see the sunset because it was pretty overcast, I didn’t think anything could compete with the view we had in the morning. Bermuda at night is magical. The stars were shining so bright in that dark sky. I kept looking up, and was just awe at how breathtaking life is. God, I’m so lucky. Phoopa threw the anchor in the water, and his handy skipper jumped in to bring the boat a little closer to shore. We all stripped down, and he explained a workaround on one of the Bermudian Laws. It’s illegal to come up to land on a private beach in Bermuda….. but not by open waters! We pulled up to the private island, that we passed by earlier and was filled with models. The clothing brand Revolve was there earlier, and all I saw was beautiful people in bathing suits playing volleyball and blasting music. Now the tiny beach was empty, silent, gorgeous pink sand just staring back at me. Yes, you read that right, the pink sand was absolutely gorgeous. It’s not as vibrant as we see in pictures, but from far you see the pink tones glisten, and from up close, when you hold the sand in your hands you see the tiny little pink sand blended with the beige sand and it just looks so cool! The sand feels like cotton on the bottom of our feet. Phoopa screamed at me” You’re wearing the right colors!” and I laughed and said, ” I keep getting that, I don’t get it” He told me there was a big cricket game going on, and the team everyone roots for is blue. When he saw Kat step out the boat with a red bathing suit, he yelled out” Omg, what are you wearing!?” She could only yell back, “I didn’t know!” This has to be what a Yankees and Red Sox fans feel like.
This past summer, in between all of the madness of Covid, my beautiful friend Kathleen was going through her newest chapter in motherhood. I was so excited to help plan her session and to document her journey with her soon to arrive baby girl.
We made our way to one of my favorite hidden gems, making this the perfect location to document her in all her glory.We had briefly talked outfits prior and as soon as I saw Kat in her pastel-colored tulle maxi dress I knew it was going to be a really good session. This gown was to die for!
I mean look at all this detail. All that fluff! Can I have one in every color please?
I know she told me she was practicing her expressions in the mirror, since she was a little nervous, but that quickly went away! Can we talk about how gorgeous Kat is looking, I mean!
Are you, or do you have a loved one who’s expecting? I’d be honored to be the one to document their journey.
Menswear fashion photography has always been on my list. Men need some attention too, and when Harvey contacted me I was ready to go! Harvey needed some new portraits for his linkedin, social media and some other platforms, and took full advantage of a sale I was throwing. His birthday was the same day as his session and I knew I had to make his session a little fun… He was laughing and broke his nervousness in front of the camera. I think he did a pretty great job!
Photographing the commitment of love is such a beautiful blessing.
I was so lucky to document newlyweds, Luis + Beata. Upon first getting to know a little more about the couple, who have a 6 years dating, they were eager to tie to the knot and were upset that their initial wedding plans had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. Their Vegas wedding was now being held in Dumbo, with a handful of loved ones surrounding them. I appreciated how no matter the circumstances, the love still shined through.
Everything seemed like it happened so quickly! The officiant was ready to go, the guests were ready to see the new couple exchange vows and have that first kiss, I was ready to get snapping.
Summer is just about over, are you sad? I know I am. Before the breeze comes this way, a few friends and I had a little backyard get together at Tanya’s house. The food was BOMB, the games had us cracking up + the company was needed.
Sometimes I remember to update my Youtube, and when I do, naturally I’ll be here to share it with you guys. Here’s to hoping I keep up the progress with video work. The editing is time consuming, but the end results always make me feel so good! Anyone who knows me, knows that I adore to make memories, and this video did just that, enjoy!
It’s a beautiful day, and nothing makes me happier than basking in new love. I met client Alison, last year during a Vision Board workshop, and here I am later, helping her express her newfound love for her cousin Michelle. Michelle has started her journey into motherhood, and I love it when someone books me as a gift! Extending your family is always beautiful, especially when there’s a new baby to celebrate. Baby boy at only 3 weeks old, so tiny and fragile, I felt so honored knowing that Alison trusted me in documenting such a milestone for her family.
Family is everything.
One of my favorite portraits taken from our session together. You can just feel the appreciation from Mom & Dad, for their new baby boy Killian.
There’s nothing like staying in at home all comfy on a rainy day… it’s even better when you’re surrounded by loved ones. I get the privilege of being a fly on the wall and allowing you to bask in that LOVE. These are the moments that you cherish and I get to help you do that.
Thank you Alison, for allowing me to be part of such a wonderful chapter in your lives. If you’re interested in a session of your own, you can view my services here.
