Hi!  Thanks for visiting my blog, where I post about recent photography shoots, my travels, and things I feel might be interesting to you!  Comments are appreciated!  Happy reading!


One of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC is called DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).  In Brooklyn, it includes the wedge between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge, and offers spectacular views of the city!  After a recent family photo shoot in this area, I used my camera to snap some street photos on […]

I loved seeing the Nunez-Chung Family again, this time in Brooklyn Bridge Park! (Last time we met up in Central Park). Mateo is only getting cuter, and I loved photographing his fun interactions with his mom and dad! This kid has A LOT of energy and I LOVED it!! One of my favorite images from […]

I know I’ve said it over and over, but it’s so true:  one of my favorite things about being a portrait photographer is being able to watch my young clients grow!  I’ve photographed the Mason family many times, and sadly, this last session took place a week before they moved down to Texas.  Hammy is […]

What a pleasure to photograph this super kind and beautiful family! Little Griffith is absolutely adorable and SO beloved by his parents! We met in a gorgeous little section of Prospect Park on a perfect September afternoon! Oh I just love the black and white photo below – one of my favorites from this session! […]

I’ve seen Eileen and Tim at a couple past weddings I photographed (they were friends with the brides and grooms!) so I was thrilled when Eileen contacted me about photographing her upcoming little baby at their home in Brooklyn! Little Owen is the sweetest baby boy! And his parents created such an adorable nursery for […]

I have an eccentric uncle who lived in New York from the 1960s until the year before I moved here.  (I try to think of this as a coincidence and not that he was escaping the city of 8 million people before I arrived…although I’m still a bit annoyed he didn’t think about leaving me […]

Most people who know me know I have a little obsession with twins, so I was super excited to photograph the wonderful H family in Brooklyn right before Christmas last month.  We took the photos in their beautiful, light-filled apartment with amazing huge windows looking out onto Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens!  I loved capturing the […]

Fiona used to live in NYC before she moved to San Francisco and married Jason.  Like everyone who has lived here and moved away, the city holds a special place in her heart, so I think it’s so awesome that she asked me to photograph her family’s first vacation here as a way to preserve […]

A mutual friend introduced me to Stephane, a photographer visiting NYC from Paris.  We chit-chatted about photography over breakfast one morning, and Stephane decided that we should take each other’s portraits to learn how the other works, and as a bonus we’d get some fresh photos of ourselves for marketing purposes.  I was excited to […]

Being able to photograph for Red Thread Sessions is always such a joy!  I love meeting freshly formed families, and the Hutsons were no exception 🙂 Auburn, Brett, and their little guy Jude traveled all the way to India a few months ago to bring home adorable twin girls Roxie and Simone.  This adorable family […]
