A few weeks ago I made my way out to Robert Moses beach on Long Island and even thought it was a bit of a ride it was sooooo worth it. I had never been out there before but believe me I have made it out there since. Joe, Jasmine, Violet & Luke have made an appearance on my blog when I photographed their holiday session (you can see it here). So naturally when they wanted to do a family session to celebrate their little guy's first birthday, I couldn't resist. The session was a dream! Violet is a great big sister! She has such a big heart for her little brother and has a thing for narwhals, which we tried to find with no luck (but we did spot a bunch of deer on our way back to the parking lot!). Luke is a little ball of energy with lots of personality and constantly needs running after. I really enjoy photographing this family and I love getting to know them a little more each time I do! Here photographing more milestones in their lives! And if you want to see more beach photos, stay tuned for a gorgeous maternity session that I'll be blogging soon!
This engagement session is by far one of my favorites. I had the opportunity to photograph in Prospect Park, which is such a beautiful place in the heart of Brooklyn and is often overlooked and overshadowed by Manhattan's Central Park. There are so many hidden gems here, and I was so excited to shoot there, that I had gone a day earlier to scout the land. When Vince and Erica reached out to me, they told me they were not really city people but that they were outdoorsy and really loved nature. Of course this is the first place that came to mind when I thought about nature in the city. We took a stroll through the park and stopped at the Prospect Park boat house which sits on a lake. It was really the most romantic place to be, especially with the sun setting behind them. These two were not at all afraid to let their playful side show through and quickly got the hang of me being in front of them with a camera in their face! I can not wait to return to this beautiful park and to see these two married!
