Feliz Noche Buena! It’s here guys we officially made it, it’s the holidays! It hasn’t been the easiest year, but it’s time to celebrate, we definitely deserve it.
I have about 3 to 4 years working with Darlene from Suitheelscurves , my favorite blogger. She focuses on everything from lifestyle, family and plus size fashion. She’s so freaking sweet and every time we work together, it’s always fun!
Since we like to work together in batches, let me explain, we take one day, with a whole bunch of outfits, and create content in bulk. So to me I didn’t think it was out of the ordinary to show up and go in one a few concepts today.
Little did I know that’s Arlene, had a pretty nice surprise up her sleeve, or should I say in her belly!
Creating these announcement images for Darlene was such a blessing, I definitely jumped up and down and gave her a huge hug! Now Michaela is going to be a big sister and her excitement is nothing short of enthusiastic.
Dear Santa, this year, a family of 3 will become a family of 4!
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.
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.
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.
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. If you’re intersted in a session of your own, you can view my services here.
Raymond has been working hard, and now is the time to show it off. I feel for my 2020 graduates, knowing they can’t celebrate the way they want to due to the pandemic. Which is why graduation sessions have hit so close to home.
I’m so proud of his determination and only wish him the best of success.. this is only the beginning. Milestones should always be documented, and I’m so grateful I got to be a part of his journey.
Congratulations Raymond!If you are interested in booking a portrait session of your own, please be sure to reach out to me HERE. I look forward to hearing from you!
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.
How about you, are you ready to document your journey to motherhood?
I know I’m ready to hear from you!

Looking forward to working with and creating wonderful memories with you.
This month is full celebrations. One of my favorites things is capturing milestones for others and what better memory to make than a loved ones graduation. Since Covid-19 has decided to stop all gatherings, my heart goes to our dear 2020 graduates who won’t be having a ceremony this year.
All that hard work does not go unnoticed. I wanted to do my part and document this success for these two beautiful ladies.
Katelyn and Havina have both graduated with honors, what better way of making a parent proud.
We all met at a local park, and the girls were ready with their gowns flowing in the wind. They were stunning. My camera came out to play.
I was eager to get back into the groove of things, especially since quarantine had me hiding under a shell. I dusted off my trusty lens and got to work. Guiding these best friends was an easy task, but I have to admit, catching them laughing off-guard made me really happy. Nothing brings me more than joy than capturing a real moment of emotion.
Sending lots of love and Congratulations to all of my graduates this year.
May all of your future endeavors be in your favor.
