Summer in the city… | NYC Child Photographer | New York, NY

I loved this session…even though this little 7 month old guy had some teeth coming in that were causing him some pain…which is why I love this first image.  Everything goes right for the mouth…even a foot!  We gave him a rest, a snack and a change of clothes and he was back in business! Battery Park City was our backdrop for this lovely NYC family’s session.  It was a hot summer night, but the sunset was beautiful as was the company…

Beach House… | NJ Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

What do you do when you have a beach session scheduled and it’s really windy out?  You start inside and gradually work your way to the beach…

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to have a sister, especially when I see girls as close as these two.   And their parents were warm and welcoming from start to finish –  you can just see it in these images.

In the Summertime… | NJ Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Well, with Hurricane Irene upon us, I thought we could use some sunny beach pictures to brighten things up…  These boys got so big since the last time I saw them for a newborn & big brother session.  Look at them now – all kinds of adorable.  And what a change in just eight months!

Beach sessions for children are some of my favorites.  Mom and Dad dressed them in great beachwear and brought colorful, wooden beach chairs which made for awesome props.  At the end of the session, we were joined by the whole family… for a beautiful finale!

Sunshine… | NJ Senior Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

I truly enjoyed the afternoon that I spent with this beautiful girl and her family.  She was sweet and relaxed and just lovely to be around, as was all of her family.  We covered a lot of ground and managed to work with the very windy day we were given, but I actually love the results…her wind-blown hair looks amazing, doesn’t it?

Wishing you all the best for your upcoming senior year!  I know you’ll shine…

She slept like…well, a baby! | NY Newborn Photographer | Orange County New York

This precious little baby girl was one of my first newborn shoots of the summer and let me tell ya, it was a hot one!!  As babies tend to sleep much better in the heat, I asked mom to turn off the AC so we could get her groggy for the session.  Well, she fell asleep and stayed in a deep slumber the whole time as I sweat bullets, but the results were well worth it.  She is beautiful, just like her mommy, and I love the image of the two of them;  we decided to get that pose at the last minute and sometimes those end up being some of the best ones!  Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer girls…

A Sweeter Place ~ Girsa | My first CD cover!

Anyone who knows me well, knows what a passion I have for music.  Before I had kids, I had the distinct pleasure of shooting my true love…live music.  Live music has always fed my soul and being able to shoot a wide array of concert photography in New York City in the late 90’s was an indescribable thrill.   When my kids came along, I thought the better of running off to concert halls after dinner, so that career fell to the wayside and was replaced by children’s portraiture ~ as much a thrill for me as music.  One of these days, I’ll dust off my slides and share some favorites…

Needless to say when the opportunity to shoot a cd cover for a band presented itself, I jumped!  High!  I am extremely pleased to present my first CD cover…

Meet Girsa ~ eight beautiful and talented young women who play traditional Irish music.  Fun, energetic and down to earth, they were a delight to work with.  From our first concept meeting to the final session, these women were filled with enthusiasm and humor…and I love that!  Not to mention, they didn’t mind trudging through thigh-high wheat fields with their instruments in tow. But the best part for me was the impromptu jam session in the field while I was setting up my shots.  Picture listening to the lively and joyful sounds of Irish music in a beautiful sun-kissed wheat field.  Spectacular!

Girsa performs internationally, with a variety of nationwide tour dates this summer.  And tonight they’ll be at Connolly’s on 45th in NYC!  Check em out and let them take you to “A Sweeter Place.”
