this is one of my favorite proposals i've done in the city! brandon & jasmine are from newfoundland, and the play "come from away" holds a special place in their hearts- especially jasmine's. brandon planned a surprise birthday trip to nyc for jasmine, and threw in an incredibly perfect proposal as well. why not, eh? ;)
these two were so incredibly kind and loving, and were a total dream in letting me follow them around for the next bit to capture some of the lovliest parts of fall in nyc.
i'm so thrilled for you both!!

trust me when i say that pictures are the best souvenir ever! it could be the pregnancy hormones, but man, this shoot just made every part of me tingly with joy and love and excitement. whether you're living in the city or visiting the city, i want to capture it all- let's meet up!! i also want to add that one of the best parts of these sessions together is that the pressure is off. no holiday card obligations. no perfect outfit searches. no forced poses or meaningless locations. it's about your family- your time, your interactions, your reactions, and your experiences together. it's FUN.
yana & her family were visiting nyc from holland, and i was thrilled when they reached out and asked to meet up in brooklyn, letting me tag along as they experienced a little part of new york city. clearly, they're BEAUTIFUL, but my gosh, they were the absolute kindest, most loving, genuine family. complimentary and gentle, and incredibly hilarious (in both their interactions with each other and with me).
here's a bit from our tour-o-dumbo + the brooklyn bridge just before dusk on a beautiful almost-spring eve...
melodie & her family are a photographer’s dream. they oozed style, class, and massive amounts of love and awesomeness. they were casual and fun, and truly let us do my favorite thing there is to do in nyc- EXPLORE (insert me stalking them with a camera;)
we walked and rode and ate our way around central park, bryant park, the plaza hotel, and more. it was a holiday dreeeeeam! also, we discovered probably the greatest hot chocolate i’ve ever had at no chewing allowed. in case you are in need.
if you’re in nyc and want me to get all up in your personal space, shoot me an email!
i knew of meg before i met meg- i worked with her mom for years (her mom is an equally fantastic human), and although i’m sure our paths crossed, it wasn’t until i moved to the city that i literally fell hard for this girl. megan and jon are gold. they somehow strike that perfect balance between, well, everything.
we walked all around their “spots” in central park on the prettiest fall morning, as the trees and surroundings peaked in their autumn glory. falling for new york city is easy to do, and even easier when you have the chance to follow people around, viewing the scenary from their eyes. it’s just the best way to crush on this dream land. it's also impossible to not get beautiful shots when pure joy is in the air!
meg, i adore you!
just before halloween i spent time with mari & her darling family, costumes in tow (how cute are her little monsters!?)- here are some of the photos from our morning exploring the festive sights around town...
before i met lizzie earlier this summer, all i heard about her and her family were the best of things- the highest of compliments, and sincerest of praises.
all that talk was 100% accurate.
lizzie is kind and generous and giving. she's warm and polite and happy. she's the quintessential east coast girl. she's a tender and doting mom. she's an amazing person. i was over the moon when lizzie asked me to take pictures of her and her boys at the met- a place that is incredibly sentimental to her. it was a perfect morning- i followed her around and listened as she talked and taught and played with her boys. we explored and meandered all around the met, and then we sat on the steps and chatted while they boys ate a pretzel and hot dog. it was literally perfect, and probably the most amazing way to see this slice of new york city.
if you're in the city and you want a spot captured that is special to you, let me know!
