Maternity Photography: Kathleen

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.

Maternity Photography: Lindsey + Jason

I don’t want my children to follow in my footsteps.

I want them to take the path next to me + go further than I could have.

It’s so beautiful how we can find people who can make us so happy.

I had so much fun photographing Lindsey+ Jason who kept cracking jokes the whole time!

I was trying to be professional guys, could not stop laughing! 😄

Headshot Session: Harvey

“Being a gentleman never goes out of style.”

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!

Wedding Photography: Beata + Luis

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.

Vlog: Summer Nights 2020

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!

Newborn Photography: Welcome Killian

  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 new found love to 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 part of such a wonderful chapter in your lives.

Photo Journal: Softball Sundays

3E4A3506

Another day, another game. It’s Sunday and that means it’s time to play ball.
The men have their shorts on, and their shirts off— some of them at least.
The sun is blazing, and this time I managed to stay a little longer than the last Sunday. Especially since I was doing my best going back and forth in between the field and my family’s house for a small barbecue that was happening. Let’s just say that my bike gave me enough of a work out.
My camera has been loving the attention I’ve been giving it lately, and I have to admit, I missed her as well — and yes, my camera is she.
My telephoto lens came in clutch allowing me to grab details of the players. I love when I get capture movement and even more when the images tell a story.

Photo Journal: Kat’s Picnic for Two

3E4A3597   One of the beautiful things in the world to me, is the radiance of a woman who’s transitioning into a new stage of motherhood.
One of my dearest friend’s Kat is expecting, and her and her spouse couldn’t be happier. Due to these past couple of months being a rough in the world, we’ve stayed away from each other as recommended, but I love having girl dates.
I think making time for your girlfriends is essential. They’re the ones that listen to all your troubles, make you laugh and are with you every step of your journey, so why wouldn’t I go out of my way to do a little something simple, like plan a picnic.
We made our way to the most obsolete part of the park, 6 feet had nothing us today. Our speaker was blasting reggeaton, while we caught up on everything that’s going on in our lives at the same time. Where do you even begin?
For me that was a little easy, as my trusty camera was ready. But let’s be clear this photo session was not planned, not even a little a bit… but I was eager to document some part of her journey— even if I was a little late, and even if she’s almost due.
