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!


Is there anything better than September in NYC?! No way! I loved photographing the awesome Boyd family again; the last time we met was a cold winter day, compelling us to photograph our session inside the Met Museum. This gorgeous late summer / early fall day in Central Park was absolutely perfect! As always, the […]

Christmas in NYC is so special; there’s just a magical feeling in the air that all can feel. Of course it’s also a perfect time to visit New York with kids — to explore, shop, and kick off the holiday festivities — and have your family portraits taken! The Morgan Family decided to visit Manhattan […]

It was such fun to photograph sweet little Evie and her parents again! We met up in Central Park the afternoon of the NYC Marathon, and we could hear the cheering nearby and feel the excitement that embraces New York on such a gorgeous autumn day. I love when clients bring their beloved pets along […]

Little Maya and her family met me in Central Park for their family portraits, and I was quickly enchanted by this sweet baby.  She was full of smiles and intense eye contact with my camera, and clearly adored her mom and dad (and I know the feeling is mutual!)  I just love summer sessions in […]

It was so good to see the Itri Family again, this time in Central Park! (We usually take their family portraits at their lovely home on Long Island). The kids are adorable as ever, and I loved their sweaters!! Thanks for coming to the city, Itri Family! It’s always good to see you 🙂 Looking […]

Oh I just love the Perkins Family! We’ve been neighbors for years now, and I love watching the boys grow up 🙂 They just love each other so much! Both boys have a lot of energy, and aren’t shy of my camera! I love capturing their unique personalities! Kelley always does a great job with […]

It was such a treat to photograph the Chaptini Family in Central Park recently! The last time I had seen them was at their incredible wedding at the SoHo Grand last year. I was so happy to find they had added the cutest little guy to their little family! Henry is SO beloved by Hiatt […]

This family is so adorable and fun! I photographed little Sophia a year or two ago in her Halloween costume at a mini photo shoot event I hosted, and this time I had the pleasure of photographing her mom and dad as well! Sofia is such a doll! I love the sweet little dress her […]

I just love photographing girls this age; they are so fun and smart and great to work with! I am going to be photographing Sunny’s Bat Mitzvah in a few months, so we met in Central Park (with her lovely mom!) to take some pre-Mitzvah photos to use for her guest book and large poster […]

How do I get so lucky that all of my clients are so fun and kind?!  I absolutely loved strolling through Central Park with the Rouse Family and their sweet pup on a gorgeous fall day.  The leaves were just starting to turn colors, but it was warm enough for Evie to run around and […]
