true love!

it's so sweet to see how in love parents are with their new little ones! these two were obviously head over heels... and who wouldn't be?? look at how cute this little guy is!  He actually really wanted to stay up for the party he was sure he was missing.... but when he finally fell asleep - well, it was all magic from then on!

it's a jungle out there!

This was one of the sweetest newborn sessions I've been to -- dad had literally bought a jungle for his new little guy!  Fast forward and here he is now -- SO CUTE!!!  this little guy has the best smile that is ever-present. He just has the sweetest personality... and it's obvious his mom and dad are head over heals in love with him!

seriously - he never stopped smiling!

Double Sweet

Even with the best laid plans, life just loves to throw curve balls!  ...  It was an absolute pleasure to get to meet and photograph M and her twins - they are absolutely adorable!!  We had planned to photograph the whole family, but the boy's older brother got ill and so he and dad weren't able to join in before they had to fly back to London.  M, would love to have a raincheck for next year's visit!!

Shootin' hoops

I just photographed this family last year...... when in the world did this "little boy" turn into a young man?!?  I was so surprised when he came around the corner and looked like he had aged in warp speed!!  I always have so much fun with them -- they are such a fun family and so easy to be around.  It always feels like being at an old friend's home!  (doesn't hurt the kids really let me play and think up super cool ideas!!)

loved these shots!!

beach days... the last little bit of summer

This has to be one of the most anticipated and most fun shoots I've done!  Last summer, when I was in NYC, I got a call from G and she said she wanted to do a shoot with her girls with their snorkeling gear (they love to snorkel - who doesn't??).  It didn't work out in timing, etc. -- it's one of those things I began to daydream about - how cool and amazing and fun it would be, so I was bummed it didn't work out.   This year, I'm standing in NYC in almost the same area, and I get a call from G to schedule the shoot for this summer (weird, right??)  I'm a big believer that things always work out for a reason and when the timing is meant to be, it will be magic.  MAGIC!!  look at how gorgeous these girls are???  We ended up shutting down the park!!  I would have kept shooting, but we ran out of light!!  (maybe G is thankful the sunset -- because I could have photographed forever!!)

Seriously -- look at this light!!  Two gorgeous girls, amazing light, SNORKEL GEAR?!?!  how often does this combination happen?!?! They were so much fun!
