Yay, life! I have been lucky enough to photograph Haley and Rich's proposal, engagement shoot, wedding, professional head shots, and now their first baby!! I absolutely love being able to document their lives like this, never mind to keep in touch, catch up, and see how it's going. And how it's going these days is REAL good! Madeline is a DREAM baby! She's sweet and beautiful and loves her mama! I LOVE watching mamas and babies (and dad's too!) fall so madly in love with each other! Life is so rich. Thank you so much!! Enjoy!!
Really good feeling for a family photographer? To go into a client's home and see their entire lives photographed and framed around their home. That would be a great feeling no matter what, but the fact that those are the photographs we made together is such a sweet feeling. Shannon and Aldo make me feel like family when I'm at their house (or their vacation house or their family's weddings, etc etc). I have photographed this family now for 7 years and it's truly an honor to be asked to be a part of their lives like this. Thank you both so much! I love you all!!
PS: Eva and Logan were sick for their shoot so we did a part two. I kinda like both so I'm adding both. C'est La Vie!
Man, it is soooo special to be invited into people's homes when they're just bringing home their child. I can literally feel the emotion in the room and I can see that new parents are utterly crushed with love. I love that. And watching Jimmy, who is a very cool headed doctor/entrepreneur fall madly in love with his daughter every second absolutely broke my heart wide open. Anna's awesome mom was in from North Carolina to help out, and when she started singing old Puerto Rican (where they're from) lullabies to Mari, there was not a dry eye in the house. Welcome to the world, Mari. You are crushed with love.
Thank you Anna Lee and Jimmy for trusting me and inviting me to document your lives. It's an honor and i love you. Congratulations.
Elizabeth and Matt are one of my all time favorite couples from Hitched Studios. So, when they asked me to travel to the Big Apple to photograph them with their gorgeous new daughter, Madeline, I was on the next train. There they were, my clients turned friends, doing so well working their way through this absolutely unknown territory of new parents! HOLY SHIT!! That's what I always think when I leave a first baby newborn shoot. Like, where is the owners manual on this thing? Not like you'd have time to read it, but it would be nice as a reference, ya know? Ya, Madeline is like BEYOND gorgeous.. obviously, and Elizabeth and Matt are doing a really awesome job as brand new parents. It was a beautiful way to spend a day, and I love this family so very much. Thank you guys SO MUCH for allowing me to photograph your one beautiful and precious life. It means so so so much to me that you trust me like this. I love you guys. Thank you. GOOD LUCK!!
Kristin and Jamie made Baby Wynne, and honestly? We're all lucky for that. Kristin and Jamie are THE COOLEST, most fun, nicest, most welcoming, absolutely lovely in every. single. way. couple, and Wynne is the luckiest baby in the land. Wynne was about a week old during this shoot, and I just stepped back and watched my friends who were brand new parents figuring it out, do their thing. It was a total honor. I love you guys SO MUCH!! Thank you so much for letting me come over. Love!
