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: 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.

Julissa looked stunning, and I’ll be sharing these in small batches. I took advantage of the day and took some pictures of my brother, with his little family as well, so you’ll be seeing those soon!

City Shooting: Strolling Downtown Brooklyn

Sometimes whenever life gets a little hectic, I try to find the simpler things to bring me a bit of instant happiness. may it be cooking, dancing in front of the mirror, watching a chick flick or having a glass of wine, that escape is always needed. During one my lunch breaks, I had to escape from my window-less office. I took a stroll and brought out my camera (canon rebel t3i) that I named Belle, she’s my baby. Since I usually shoot in color when it comes to my everyday life, whenever shooting still life I like to practice my black and white. And no, not changing the color to black and white after the shot has been captured. The old school black and white, right at the moment.

I bumped into  this beautiful dress in the window, a brick arched alleyway leading to a restaurant that was beautiful lit. I bumped into this house with a nice huge window in the front, but even better than that, the gloomiest tree right in front of it, I felt like it was Amityville’s Horror ‘s home. Creepy!

Tell me what you guys think!

I need to take out Belle out on a date more often.

Maternity Shoot: Sophia’s Mommy

11.2.w83cdf0bd9774a3ef9123c4df9b341aabStraight from work, I felt no need to stay at home lounging around doing nothing. I called up one of my closest friends around my way (well, my only friend around my way.. I have yet to make friends in Brooklyn.. booo hooo.) Any who… since her babyshower is around the corner, I thought it was perfect to have a last minute photoshoot of our own. Note, that I do not  own photoshop (which I’m dying to learn) so I pretty much make due with what I have. We set up using a lamp to add some brightness to her face and I just started to snap away. I hope you guys like, I know she loved them!9w10.2w7 8Ps. Check out these behind the scenes pics of when we were fooling around with makeup with her gorgeous niece!1-6_1 2-5_1 4_1 5_1 6_1
