Brooklyn Baby | New York Baby Photographer

When I arrived to this little guy's home I was greeted so warmly. He gave me a shy smile that said "you look ok but I have to check you out for a few minutes." So we watched a few minutes of TV and became buddies over an episode of Elmo's World. What could be a better bonding experience?

Brooklyn Bridge Mini Session | Brooklyn New York Photographer

One word... CUTE! Ok so I say that all the time. But do you see these faces I photograph! BEAUTIFUL!! This little beauty posed it up for the camera; and after a while I even got some great candid shots of her which made me super happy!! It was so funny once she discovered the playground and that became her main focus. I had so much fun floating around the park with her. Yes she did float... like a pretty little fairy!

For fellow Sookie Stackhouse fans I don't mean that kind of fairy ;)

This should definitely be a canvas Mom!

Brooklyn Bridge Mini Session | Brooklyn New York Photographer

Alana was on of my very first clients and I was so happy to see her again! Though I have a feeling she is far from shy she is always shy with me and I am very proud when I get her to smile and grin! It was still early when we shot her mini session and the light was just perfect!

Brooklyn Bridge Park Mini Session | Brooklyn, NY Baby Photographer

All I have to say is way too cute! I remember when he was tucked away in his Mom's belly and also his visit to the studio's Masquerade party last year. Once he realized that he could walk around and I would follow he was on the move. Those first few seconds of stillness had me fooled! This little guy enjoyed being the center of attention and a brisk morning at the park. I loved watching him run around, and all the smiles he gave me.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Mini Session | Brooklyn, NY Baby Photographer

One word... ENERGY! I wish little A would give me some of his because he must have an endless supply. Nydia you are an amazing and beautiful mom. The way you keep up with your little guy is awesome. I had so much fun with you two. Capturing little A's many faces and climbing moves put a smile on my face.

By the way Nydia has a great blog that everyone should check out.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Mini Session | Brooklyn, NY Baby Photographer

The last time I saw this little guy he was crawling around and now he is on the move. It took him a little while to warm up to me unlike the 1st time. I have learned that one year olds take a little more time to feel out new people. He still has the same beautiful eyes and a very intense stare! What a cutie pie!! By the end of our mini session I had come a long way and he even let me put his jacket on! I felt so special ;)

Spotlight: Photo Guest Books | NYC Wedding Photography

Why have an ordinary guest book at your wedding, party, or event? You can have an interactive guest book that will hold photo memories as well as fun messages and advice from friends and family! These are very popular at weddings where guests have a chance to see highlights from the engagement session and are asked lots of fun questions about the couple. A photo guest book makes a wonderful engagement album and wedding keepsake!

Fair Haven Family Affair | New Haven CT Wedding Photographer

Put their names together and it sounds like dessert. Thats good enough for me! Sarah and Lee are a beautiful couple and have been together for so long that they used their wedding day as a way to bring all of their family together at their home. This made it a very special day filled with love that was just oozing. Here is a quick peek at the day. I will definitely be posting more photos soon because this wedding was special to me for many reasons. For one thing I had permission to truly capture the day as it unfolded and spread my photojournalistic wings!

DUMBO & Brooklyn Bridge Park | Brooklyn NY Family Photographer

All I can say is what a beautiful family!!! Of course two gorgeous people made these 3 adorable boys!! Karen and Thierry are about to celebrate their 10th anniversary and it is beautiful that they have so much love to show! We had lots of fun on the streets of DUMBO and then in Brooklyn Bridge Park. I was lucky enough to visit their home before we started the session and go to know the boys a bit. They have 3 totally different personalities, and keep Mom and Dad on their toes. Big brother loves to help take care of his little brothers which is super sweet. Speaking of which big brother has a birthday on Friday!

Happy 6th Birthday & Happy 10th Anniversary!!

Brooklyn Promenade Engagement | Brooklyn, NY Wedding Photographer

I haven't had a session at the promenade in a while and I forgot how much I love it! Mario and Stephanie were so much fun. I went to high school with Mario and when he came by the studio with his bride to be I must say I got teary eyed. My reaction came from a few different places. For one thing I am so happy for him and can see the love oozing. Secondly, he just seems like such a grown up which he obviously is! Lastly it made me realize that, oh boy, that means I am a grown up too! Yes I should know that already but in life sometimes I have these WOW moments.

I know this is a tiny sneak peek so please forgive me. The studio is SUPER busy right now during the holiday season!

During the session I learned that Mario is even sillier now than he was in high school!

The wedding is going to be a blast!
