Carter and Luisa are both members of my church here in Jersey and are getting ready to welcome their baby boy into this world! I was delighted to photograph these first time parents. Congrats Carter and Luisa!!
I can't believe it took me 7 months to finally have a client session in Jersey, my new home! Many of my clients either live in Manhattan or its a great in between place to meet and photograph in. However when Luisa suggested having her Maternity Session at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, I was totally game! The setting was stunning; the perfect view of Downtown Manhattan and Lady Liberty, beautiful rolling hills, and plenty of open space. It's gorgeous atmosphere was ideal for this little family and will certainly become a staple in my future Jersey sessions.
As the freezing temperatures are starting to bow out (finally) I just knew that I couldn't let my first East Coast winter slip by without photographing dancers in the snow, a photography dream of mine. My dear friend Aaron and his dancing partner, Austin, joined me for a very fun day filled with jumps, lifts, and laughs.
Oh, and it was in the 30s that day.
I'm so lucky to have such fearless friends!
Though I love all different types of photography, it was so wonderful to return to my first love: dance photography! I love the thill of capturing the perfect jump, the elegance in the arms, and the perfect pose to compliment the setting and dancer. I'm looking forward to more Dance Portrait Sessions as the snow melts and the temperatures rise!!
I always love reconnecting with old friends, so when Macy contacted me about photographing herself and fiancé, Michael, for an Engagement Session, I was delighted!! Macy and Michael were high school sweethearts and moved up to NY straight after graduating. For their session they endured a cold New York Winter's morning in the Park and I loved the final result of our collaboration!
I met Macy while we were still in grade school through a mutual performer friend. It was a pleasure to see her again and getting to meet Michael. They are an adorable couple!
