Nothing is sweeter than strawberry milk, except maybe a breastfeeding momma in strawberry milk. Talk about magical!
This session has also solidified something I kind of already knew deep in my heart, I just love documenting Motherhood! Motherhood should be cherished, documented, and celebrated. I always feel so honored when I get to be the one to capture the moments that pass by so quickly. The memories you’ll be cherished forever.
So if you just gave birth or have some tiny humans, I’m ready for you!
Meeting Virgina + Allan was so heartwarming. They’ve known each other since 4 years old, and started to date at the age of 23. Now at this stage of their love, the love has blossomed with their newest addition, Brooklyn.
Virginia wanted to capture Brooklyn in her first days, to have that memory forever. I was so proud and humbled to be the one to do that for her. These are the moments that remind me how much I truly love my job. What a blessing.
Brooklyn, with her tiny little fingers, and cute button nose, was absolutely precious. I didn’t have to do much to show off how cute she was. She was a doll!

I was committed to this session like nobody’s business. It was my goal this year to photograph a family in a sunflower field, and I couldn’t have asked for a better tribe. Kathleen + Edwin are expecting their baby girl, and it’s time to capture their memories.
We arrived at Happy Day Farms, a sunflower field in New Jersey. The drive went by pretty quickly, which I was grateful for. I tend to get really car sick on long car rides— but only when I’m in the backseat! Weird.
We quickly realized how hot this day was as soon as we stepped out of the car. Moods changed and I was just secretly hoping that wouldn’t reflect on camera. Both Kat + Ed were on a mission to get the shot.
I absolutely loved the final product of these images + was so eager to deliver them.
You have got to give credit where it’s’ due. Thank you K + E for being such troopers, and being fabulous at the same time, I’m so grateful.

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 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.
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!
