Alisha & Adeel in Central Park

Alisha contacted me earlier in the summer to redeem her Groupon for some portraits in Central Park. Adeel, her +1, agreed to come along for fun but was such a great sport, he got into a few frames! I absolutely love shooting couples who have infectious, positive energy. And that, this lovely couple did! 

Keeping my fingers crossed on receiving the call from Alisha about a new fixture on her finger soon!

Three - Generation Family Portraits in Battery Park City

After a month off the grid I am back and exited to share this summer family shoot in Battery Park City. My first shoot in Battery Park City and I discovered what an ideal spot  it is for children and families. There is so much diversity in this area with a beautiful parkway along the Hudson to cobblestone, residential streets. Emma, a girl with an infectious laugh below, was entertaining for all of us and filled with smiles!

Priya in Central Park!

There is not much to say about Priya, who is a total doll! She's my kind of girl; one who knows what they want and how to get it! Watch out Mom and Dad! Priya's gonna cause a lot of heart breaks!

Twins! | Nini and Arabella in Central Park

I know all my West Coast readers are dying with the multiple features on Central Park but the park itself measures 6 miles so I'm constantly rediscovering where my clients lunch and play. 

Jahara has twins, Arabella (boots) & Nini (balloon) and I tip my hat to her! Boy! I am trained to work with children and I could hardly catch my breath shooting these little rascals.... parenting twins is one amazing feat. Despite how fast the girls scooted, we managed to capture a handful of wonderful photos in a meadow near the twins' home. Nini and Arabella have their own distinct personalities, check 'em out below! Note to self: bubbles and balloons go a long way!

Carl Schurz Park Family Portraits | The Allens

The Allen Family chose their local Carl Schurz Park {a new favorite for me!} for some early morning Family Portraits. I love Charlie --- he's a pro at having his picture taken, looking directly into the camera and showing off his dimples. What a cutie!
