New Hampshire Coastline Family Perfection - NYC Photographer in Portsmouth, NH

The New Hampshire coastline is always beautiful but this location is enhanced by this wonderful family.  The boys are 4 and 2 - gleefully exploring the world around them.  Their parents are amazed by them and can't believe how lucky they truly are for the family they created.  I love to witness so much family love, laughter and appreciation.

My boys...the Loves of My Life - NYC Kids Photographer

These boys are indeed the loves of my life.  I'm so very thankful for them and that they still allow me photographing them.  This special sunset session was captured along the New Hampshire coastline - near my parents home.  I'm so glad that I will get to continuously marvel at these capture moments when my kids were 12 and 9.  They are growing up way too fast!

Kids in Need - NYC Photographer

It was a wonderful "back to school" experience across NYC on the very first day of school....especially for a wonderful group of Brooklyn school kids I photographed. The kids were gathered in the auditorium and awaited the BIG surprise. To their delight, The Kids In Need Foundation distributed backpacks and school supplies to every child at school. The excitement and smiles were contagious and I was so happy to be apart of it.

The Kids In Need Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. Studies show that when kids have school supplies of their own, classroom behavior and grades improve, self-esteem strengthens, and kids develop better attitudes toward school and learning.

A moment to remember - Brookyn family photography

This family loves the annual tradition of capturing this specific place in time with their family - the kids are growing so fast!  Everyone in the family loves having these special captured moments and looking at these photographs throughout their home.  As much as i-phone photos are convenient - it doesn't compare to the special-ness of professional family portraits.  For Mom and Dad, the relationship between their kids is simply amazing...they are in love and it's so beautiful to watch the relationship grow.  Their family's love is unique and contagious.  I wish this love and happiness for all the families that I photograph.

Dumbo with Love - NYC Family Photographer

Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park always makes for a fantastic backdrop for a fabulous family photography session.  This awesome family didn't disappoint.  The kids acted like kids.  The parents held them close and made them smile with love.  And everyone had belly laughs...especially me.  There's nothing better than kids to show adults what an authentic moment is and what life is truly all about.

Superman & Brooklyn Bridge Park- NYC Family & Kid Photographer

I had the great pleasure of meeting this special and lovely family through a fantastic preschool in Bed Stuy.  This superman of a little boy is quite unique.  He has the women in his life wrapped around his finger and for good reason.  That smile....that laughter....that twinkle in his eye....All was in full display this beautiful morning over Memorial Day weekend in Brooklyn Bridge Park.  Memories captured for a lifetime!

Family love in Washington, DC - NYC & DC Family Photographer

I've known the mom in this family for decades - we went to the same high school.  But I've never known her in her role as a mother.  She is not only a kind and fun friend but she is a fantastic and present mother to her 3 beautiful children and a true partner to her fabulous husband.  I'm so glad that when I returned to my hometown of Washington, DC, I got to join this family for all their family fun as well as captured all the laughs and smiles.  Memorable photographs to last a lifetime.

Red Hook with love - NYC Family Photographer

I've been friends with this fun and funny family for 4 years now....once they moved in the apartment down the hall from me.  We have done so many things together...playdates, sledding, dinners and even an ongoing bookclub.  But this time together was the first time I captured them for an official family photography.  The results speak for themselves.  Red Hook...we love you!

Family love in Cobble Hill Park - NYC Family Photographer

Cobble Hill Park is one of those quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood parks.  Its a park that the community adores....not only is it picturesque but it is also a place where young toddlers can play in the sandbox, ride on the dolphin statue or have an adventure going down the slide. Its a destination where adults go to have a pleasant outdoor lunch, leisurely read a book on a park bench or relax on a picnic blanket on the green grass.  For this family, Cobble Hill Park acted as a perfect backdrop where together we captured the love and connection of their family.  I can't wait to do it again with this loving 4-some.

Family Love in a Brooklyn Community Garden - Brooklyn Family Photographer

The best photography locations come in small and large sizes.  This sweet family session took place in a Brooklyn neighborhood community garden in the Columbia Street Waterfront neighborhood.  The garden flowers and this family's love were beautifully blossoming....perfect for a Spring Family Photo Session.
