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!
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.
If you’re interested in having a maternity session of your own, I’ll be so happy to provide that memory for you. Reach out to me by using the button below!
It’s that wonderful time of the year again. And after the year that we have had, We need all the positivity and enlightening spirit we can get.
This year has made you realize the things that truly matter. It’s not fancy clothes, going out and spending money at the clubs, it’s pending time with love ones and not taking them or their time for granted.
We never really know when it’s going to be the last time we see that favorite cousin, that uncle that always makes you laugh, or your grandmother who spends all her days in the kitchen making your favorite meals.
Family feeds your soul, they are always there to bluntly tell you the truth even if you don’t wanna hear it, and always be the ones to have your back in public, and then yell at you about in private.
It’s all love.
This session was so heartwarming for me to do, I’ve known my neighbors for almost 20 years, (Damn I’m getting old) And I’ve never seen My neighbor Liz, once show off any family photos.
Which is why this year I told her that nothing would make me happier than gifting her a family session with her family. Her daughter who’s away at college, her teenage son who is almost about to finish high school and her loving husband of many many moons.
They’ve been through so much this year, and if I could bring a little joy into their lives I was going to do that.
As soon as I told her the news she got so excited, and straightaway knew that she wanted everybody in pajamas, at home, all cozied up together. It was perfect.
It was great to see everybody laughing, and enjoying themselves at the session. John and Liz even showed me their last portrait session taken 17 years ago, when the kids were so tiny. It was taken at Sears and it was hung up on the living room wall and you can instantly see the style of the 90’s.
I laughed and joked that it was about damn time!
They both mentioned they couldn’t wait to get their new ones printed and framed to show off to anyone that walks in through the doors.
Once I delivered the gallery, I received messages of praises. This is one of the best feelings that comes with job, making those memories tangible.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and cherish the ones you have next to you.
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.

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.
I loooove Halloween, I always have. And now that the kiddies are here, and old enough to walk a bit, it’s time to start changing some traditions. Harlie was dressed like a little witch, while Amaury was cute puppy. I broke out last year’s costume and it was still a big hit. The whole night was walked around I kept hearing ” Baby shark, doo doo, doo doo” All I want to know is “am I the only upset that there’s no Auntie Shark?”
And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can see & hear the famous and super catchy theme song HERE. There are so many variations of it! (It’s also like the only thing that keeps this kids sane when they throw their temper tantrums!)
It was a nice night for all of us, and I was extremely impressed with a haunted house that was decorated not only on the outside, but the homeowners allowed strangers to walk inside and see all the madness. There was even a special room full of crazy clown, and they even had a movie being projected in the backyard. How sweet!
Until Next time,
I’ve always been really good at finding fun stuff to do. Especially in the summer time. NYC is filled with so many activities, all you have to do is a little bit of homework. When the weather starts to drop it gets a little harder, but that doesn’t deter me for long. Now that I have kiddies in my life (my niece and nephew) I get to search for family things to do— because no one wants a grown woman without kids showing up to family stuff, that’s just weird.
Randall’s Island was hosting a Harvest Festival and I didn’t hesitate to tell my siblings about it. The kids would have the chance to play, listen to live music and just roam around (not inside a house)
I signed up Harlie right away to play with the chickens, and she didn’t seem scared, but she didn’t seem to interested to be touching them either. Amaury was a different story, he just looked so confused as to what this creature was next to him, pecking at the pumpkins on the floor.
The kids are getting bigger, and I find it fascinating how these little humans have their own little personalities. Watching them grow and learn is a such a blessing. I’m truly a lucky aunt.
I secretly love 10 minute photo sessions. When you do something right, there’s no need to stay there longer than needed. My cousin Sasha and her family has been growing non-stop these past few 4 years. I’ve photographed a couple of her milestone (clink on the events below to see) and this was no different, now that she’s expecting baby number 3.
Contrary to the pictures because of all the pink, she’s expecting another boy! Dad Ramgy was hoping for a girl, but Sasha was pretty content knowing she was going to be the only queen in the house!
As the unofficial photographer of the family, I’m always ready to get behind the camera to capture the moments that matter. If I can do this for everyone else, why should my own family have to deal with crappy cell phone pictures ( I secretly hate those).
My brother Luis and girlfriend Jen are expecting, and only being 5 months in, I wanted to be able to remember the middle stages of the pregnancy. That way when she’s really showing, we can have round two and compare.
During our Father’s Day barbecue (you can read that post HERE) I told the couple to take a quick walk with me. They really weren’t expecting this happen today, so It’s not like there was any time to prepare. This session lasted about 12 minutes and because we didn’t want to be away for too long and leave the food on the grill waiting for us, we hurried back. For such a quick walk, I think we did pretty damn well!
Looking forward to session number 2, with a bigger belly,
