Engaged! | Rosie & Leon in Central Park

Already married now, Leon and Rosie opted for some romantic sunset engagement photos at inconic Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. I LOVE to see and shoot couples who light up around each other and this couple hit the nail on the head! Leon and Rosie perform in the same Gospel group and had an infectious passion and energy for one another. You can tell, take a peak to see if you agree!

Far Rockaway Kid Portraits | Anya & Chloe

Anya and Chloe were referred by their godmother, a close Harlem friend of mine. I had never been to Far Rockaway before so this was a great reason to go! Chloe in those little angel wings is to-die-for! And... she couldn't ask for a better big sister in Anya; patient and graceful, this family is blessed with two of the prettiest Hello Kitty spokes-kids around!

Central Park Maternity Shoot | Giovanna

What can I say, Central Park has been a popular destination for clients with the warmer weather and the Grouponers were no exception. It's always a challenge to recreate spaces I've already shot in, but Gio and Jared made that job easy because they were easy and generous thought partners. If they had an idea about an images they shared it, we tried it and kept it moving. Ah, the ideal clients! 

Congrats to the Millers on their baby-to-be!

Engaged! | Andrew + Michala

Andrew and Michala were high school sweethearts who are on their way to the altar in 2013. It was refreshing to finally meet and shoot a couple sharing such unassuming love (that never happens any more!). Both from just outside Chicago, they relocated to the Big Apple a couple years back and couldn't be happier with their new lives here. We had a great time exploring the southeast corners of Central Park, near the spot they got engaged!

Congrats Andy and Michala and best of luck on the journey ahead!

Fanny's Headshots | Santa Monica Pier

Fanny is a mutual friend who is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in LA. She's awesome {+beautiful!} and launching a new website for her business, which is why she came to me for some photos during my west coast tour last week. Check out a few snaps from our shoot!

Pt. Mugu Maternity Shoot | Michelle & Co.

Michelle and I have been best friends since the 7th grade; I guess that this then makes us old, since here I am posting about her toddler and second pregnancy. She is truly glowing and surrounded by Bill and Marcus, who wouldn't be? Recently having relocated back to SoCal, we opted for a beach shoot at Pt. Mugu, a great destination for those readers looking for a bit more privacy on the water. I feel like a proud Mom writing this, but doesn't she look beautiful? We all can only hope to be that hot when we are preggos! Enjoy a few snaps from our shoot. 

*** Some images were processed with a grainy filter and we LOVE the effect it gives on the beach.
