Rockland County, NY Children’s Photographer- The Magic of Summer

When I was a child, summer seemed so magical. Time stretched out to infinity, there was always endless fun stuff to do and best  friends to do it with. As an adult, I still love summer. But I struggle to find the magic. To get those feelings of freedom and possibility back. I find myself buried under endless to-do lists, work, errands, responsibilities… Sometimes two days go by and I realize I haven’t even spent five minutes outdoors.  When that happens I know I just need to head outside. I let the kids play in the sprinkler or with the hose while I sit there and just soak it all in- the warm air, the earthy smell of grass, the occasional surprise spray in the face by one of my hose wielding kids. The song of the crickets mingle with my children’s laughs and squeals to form the most relaxing, magical medley of sounds. The sun starts to sink lower and lower, the water droplets from the hose turn into a sparkling, golden spray and suddenly, I feel it- summer’s magic. For a short time, all the worries and stresses of adulthood fade away into the background and everything seems possible again. And all it takes is some fresh air and a little spray of water.

Monsey, NY Upsherin Photographer- Blondes have more fun!

They say blondes have more fun. All I know is, when you’re being photographed by me you definitely have more fun, whatever color your hair is! How gorgeous is little D.? And how sad is it that  his hair has to get cut when he turns three? He’ll always have his gorgeous blue eyes and adorable smile though, and as for the hair- his family will have a beautiful metal print display to remind them of how beautiful it was.

 

Thinking about booking your family session this summer? Call the studio at 917-750-3424 asap to reserve your slot before I fill up! Lets talk about what gorgeousness you want me to capture for YOUR walls!

Passaic, NJ Newborn and Family Photographer

This perfectly adorable little princess was one of the sleepiest newborns I’ve photographed. Her beautiful big sister was a very willing model, and when she flashed that dimple I was totally charmed. I was so honored to have been able to capture these beautiful moments for this gorgeous family. At their viewing session, we designed a stunning high-impact canvas wall display for their home featuring all of Mom and Dad’s favorite images- and I know they will love seeing that wall every time they pass it. As mom put it, what better way to decorate your home than with beautiful portraits of your family?

Rockland County, NY Newborn Photographer- Adorable Doll

They came into the studio on a frigid winter day, looking tired but happy. When I peeked into the car seat, I saw the most adorable little face nestled under thick warm layers of gray and pink. She was up for a little bit but once we got her nice and sleepy she was amazing for the rest of the session. W. family, I hope you’re enjoying your little princess’s portraits!  p.s. how unfair is it that the “pom-pom shot” which I first did with my son, came out so much cuter with this little girl??
