I’m so excited to share images from this sweet in-home newborn session in Manhattan because of how it came to be. See, this gorgeous momma was a bridesmaid in one of the weddings I photographed over four years ago. Yes, 4 years ago!! She remembered me and asked me to document her lifestyle newborn session for the arrival of her second son. I was so blown away and beyond excited to reconnect! We had a great natural light session in their gorgeous upper west side apartment. Congratulations on your new baby boy and can’t wait to see how they both grow up! xo
Montauk is simply a magical place! The ocean, the beach town, the relaxed vibe, and its all beauty really are the perfect backdrop for any couple to fall in love. Chelsea and Ben love the Hamptons and it was really important for them to celebrate their marriage at their favorite location, Gurney’s Montauk Resort and Seawater Spa.
The bride got ready in her private suite at Gurney’s before putting on the most beautiful couture wedding gown from Mira Zwillinger. This incredible Gigi ballgown was covered with Degrade Appliquéd Flowers that looked incredible on the bride to be. Ben and his groomsmen got ready in the Regent Cocktail Club before the couple exchanged their private first look in a hidden location on the edge of the resort. It was so sweet, romantic, and special for the couple to share a few private moments with each other before the pace of the day truly picked up.
AvaFloral created the most stunning coral cascading bridal bouquet for Chelsea. We had so much fun on the beach taking their bride and groom photos and bridal party portraits. The couple held their ceremony outside on the Forward Deck overlooking the ocean just before sunset. One of Ben’s childhood best friends is also a Pastor and they asked him to officiate their wedding which was so special for the couple. As they exchanged vows, laughs, and their first kiss as husband and wife was celebrated with loud cheers of excitement by all of their guests. It was so exciting! Their wedding reception was held in the gorgeous white tent and Atomic Funk Project brought down the house. I absolutely loved being part of Chelsea and Ben’s love story from their engagement, to wedding, and I know for many years to come. I’m so happy for this wonderful couple to enjoy being married to each other for the rest of their lives! xo

On one of the most perfect Fall days I've ever seen in the Hamptons, Catherine and Chris were married in front of their closest family and friends at the Queen of the Most Holy Church in Bridgehampton, NY. The bride wore a stunning light, beach friendly dress by Tara Keely and crystal encrusted Louboutin flats. Chris was emotional as his soon-to-be wife walked down the aisle to officially become husband and wife. Guests tossed rose petals at the newlyweds as they left the church and we headed to Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club for photos.
Crystal clear skies and warm sand was the perfect backdrop for the couples bride and groom photos. The beach is so important to the couple and they wanted to take all their photos outside to preserve the wonderful memories they share as a couple. Wildflower Floral Events created beautiful bouquets of white hydrangea's, pink roses, and pink dahlia's and decorated the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club with a timeless and romantic aesthetic. Hank Lane's Nocturne Band was simply incredible and I don't think I saw anyone sitting down once the reception really started to take off. I'm so happy for Catherine and Chris and honored to have been part of their wedding day. xo

I'm so happy to share some of my favorite photos from this sweet in home newborn session from one of my past couples. They welcomed their second son and I'm so honored that they contacted me again to capture their newborn photos in their home in Brooklyn. It was so great to catch up and meet their new little guy and see how their first son has grown up to a little man. It was a wonderful morning and can't wait to watch both boys grow up! xo
Sometimes fate has a funny way of working out. The Bride and Groom went to college together but never met until several years later at a college reunion. After getting to know each other, they quickly hit it off and their courtship began. Their bohemian chic Indian fusion wedding embodies both of them so perfectly. The blending of two families and two cultures on a very special day. They hired Canas Miracle to design, coordinate and plan their stunning wedding at the stunning Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Tarrytown, NY. What an incredible venue to host their multicultural celebration. The Bride wore an incredible handmade traditional Indian wedding dress with lots of personal touches and hand embellishments that up close, were breathtaking. The Groom wore a tradition Indian outfit to honor his new bride as they became husband and wife.
Their outside Fall ceremony was so beautiful and the September weather did not disappoint. As the sun began to set, the temperature cooled down as the Bride and Groom walked to the center of the courtyard at Stone Barns. They stood under a spectacular chuppah that was completely covered in hops, which I had never seen before!! They exchanged vows with their children, then with each other, and finally exchanged rings to make it official. It was a joyous wedding with lots of love, laughter, and plenty of emotions. I am so honored I was able to capture this bohemian chic fusion wedding Blue Hill at Stone Barns for this wonderful couple! xo

One of the greatest joys of my life was becoming a mother. Being able to create life and then take care of baby will forever change any women. One of the side benefits to being a mom myself is that I have a lot more empathy for new moms and totally understand what they are going through which makes my in home newborn sessions very relaxed. We go slow with the session and take time whenever the baby needs a break, a nap, and of course, a meal.
I am so happy that I can continue to document my couples lives throughout their own journeys into parenthood. It's truly a miracle and I'm so happy to be able to offer my photography services and be part of their lives for many years to come. Here are a few favorites from my sweet couples in home newborn session in their sun drenched home. The light was perfect and their daughter is just the sweetest. Enjoy! xo
Getting up early at sunrise to head to Central Park from Brooklyn is definitely a no short trek into Manhattan but each time I arrive, I'm reminded as to why it's worth it. No one is there and you have the biggest park in New York City all to yourself. In other words, it's magical!
I am so excited to share a few of my favorite photos from Elyisha and Nadeem's sunrise engagement session in Central Park from this past Fall. The sun was slow to rise but once she was out, we had a blast taking full advantage on the Bow Bridge and in front of The Boathouse Restaurant in the middle of the park. These two are the sweetest couple and I cannot wait for their epic two-day wedding this Summer at The Park Chateau in New Jersey. Enjoy! xo

From the very minute I met Megan and Dave, I knew we were going to have the best time together. They are so in love, so giving, and caring that it was a match made in heaven. We had the best time during their engagement session and the fun continued well into their wedding day at Gurney's Star Island (formerly the Montauk Yacht Club) in Montauk, NY. The couple spent many summers out in the Hamptons and Montauk was the only place they wanted to get married.
Megan wore a breathtaking mermaid wedding dress from Monique Lhuillier and nude, crystal studded Christian Louboutin flats. Pinned to Megan's wedding bouquet was her brother's U.S. Army tag because he is on active duty servicing our country and unable to make it back to the states on leave. This was Megan's way of having him with her on her wedding day which was incredibly touching. We thank him for his service for protecting our country! Dave looked ever so handsome in his tuxedo from The Black Tux. The couple got married at St. Therese in Montauk before we were whisked away to the Montauk Lighthouse for their bridal party photos and bride and groom portraits. The weather was supposed be clear but some how the rain showed up just as we got to the Lighthouse so we powered through the rain and took as many photos as we could before returning to Gurney's Star Island Resort to take some fun bridal party photos in the iconic Turtle Room. It was a blast to have their closest friends pop open a can of their favorite beer from Montauk Brewery and cheers the happy couple!
The night was filled with so many wonderful and touching speeches, dances, and heartfelt happiness. It was a joy to photograph and document their wedding day!! I'm so honored to have been part of their love story and can't wait to see what life has in store for this amazing couple. Congratulations Newlyweds!! xo
