Family: Dear Santa…

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!

Engagement Session: Sade + Patrick

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.

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! 😄

Photography: Love from Atlanta

This weekend I was commissioned for a last minute gig… I mean like super last minute. I packed up my bag and ran out the door.
This lovely couple came to NYC from Atlanta, and that’s all I knew beforehand.

When I arrived, Darnell and Z were waiting for me inside a gorgeous Rolls Royce. It was Darnell’s birthday and it was a night to be celebrated.

This couple was so sweet and so affectionate towards each other. I loved how happy they were to just being together. It was as if it was just them against the world.

I wish them nothing but the best in their future. Thanks for letting me a part of your special day.
