Catskill Mountains Maternity Photographs

I always love maternity photographs but this portrait session is one of my favorites for several reasons. First of all, there is no location more beautiful than than the Ashokan Reservoir in the Catskill Mountains. While I usually like to photograph outdoors in warm weather there is nothing like winter light. The second reason I love this particular session is that it was with my stunning cousin! She is just glowing! I am so happy I had the opportunity to capture these moments for her.

A New York First Birthday Party!

Blue and silver was the perfect theme for this wintery first birthday party at Due Ponti Restorante in Beechhurst, New York. Angie Bae of Angie & Co. did an amazing job planning all of the details. I especially love the race car cake topper and matching crayon gift bags. So cute! The guest of honor looked absolutely adorable in his traditional Korean clothes during his Dol ceremony!

An Engagement Party at Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ

It was such honor to photograph Alison and Kamil's engagement party at the amazing Maritime Parc in Jersey City. Before the festivities began we did a mini portrait session around the restaurant. Even though it was freezing outside we were able to take a few photographs on the restaurant's balcony overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Since Alison and Kamil are getting married in Poland, the party meant a lot to many of their friends who would not be able to make it to their wedding. I think everyone had a great time and enjoyed Maritime Parc's fantastic food!

Long Island Maternity Photography

Maternity sessions are always a little extra special. Expectant parents are filled with excitement and anticipation as they are waiting for their little one to arrive. I love being able to capture those feelings on "film." This couple was no different when we spent a beautiful day at Rosalyn Duck Pond. Check back soon for their newborn portrait session!

Hudson Valley Family Portrait Session at The Vanderbilt Mansion

 You may have noticed I am a bit behind on my blogging which is why I am posting an Autumn family portrait session in March. But while the trees are bare outside my window right now I love looking at photographs that remind me how beautiful it was when there was more color outside! This family definitely had fun playing in the leaves and how adorable are this brother and sister!? Of course the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, New York makes an amazing backdrop.
