Central Park Family Portraits | The Totejas

It's no secret that I am a fan of the Harlem Meer. But what I do enjoy more than shooting in Central Park North, however, is when I get children who are notorious for frowns to turn them upside-down!

DUMBO Family Portraits | The Riveras

There are some shoots where I just connect with the client and the rest they say, is history. The Rivera Family was super easy in front of the camera and had a great sense of humor about our DUMBO shoot. Needless to say, their images came our flawless! They wanted urban - chic and that's exactly what they got.

Head Shots | Alisa

Head shots are not really my forte but with the ongoing influx of Groupon clients and their varying needs, I am certainly broadening my skill set. Alisa, an aspiring actress, needed some new head shots. She mentioned that she always looks "angry" in photos  and that she's actually not so comfortable in front of the camera. I mean, really, Alisa?! If anything, your head shots prove that you are a superb actress!

Harlem Meer Family Portraits | Saafa's 1st Birthday

Birthdays are special, and first birthdays even more so. Saafa is the apple of her parent's eye and despite being a tired birthday girl, she was an awfully cute one!

Central Park Children's Portraits | Samuel

If you follow my work, you know I am a kid - lover! I work hard to bring out the best in them and to capture the small nuances that make them, well, them! I feel so privileged when families invite me to document such intimate moments and Samuel here, is no exception. We had a short but eventful romp in Central Park a few weeks ago. Enjoy.

Fort Tyron Park Engagement Photos | David & Eliora

Remember Chiara & Creighton's ah - mazing Hudson River shoot last fall? Well, Eliora, her sister, also a bride-to-be, came out to Fort Tyron Park for spring engagement photos. I mean, what a pair! Photo - friendly muses are hard to come by and David and Eliora carried on as if I wasn't even there. THANK YOU!

This couple has a unique story, which, they explained, had everything to do with their chosen outfits. Childhood friends who turned the corner together into full fledged romance, Eliora and David remember dancing at David's Bar Mitzvah in nearly the same outfits they chose for their engagement shoot. Love like this is a rarity and it was a treat to shoot these two. Taking the plunge in May 2013, the lovebirds have plenty of time to plan their nuptials and enjoy the ride. Congrats to Eliora & David!
