New Life: Baby Brayden ~ Long Island family and newborn portraits

I photographed baby Brayden when he was only 8 days new.  Such a sweet boy!  Big furry sister and brother, Dolly and Louie, the family English bulldogs, are already very protective of him.

Brayden has a very cool nursery with a nautical theme so one of his little outfits and props were  sailor pants/hat and a little boat – just too cute!

All the portraits were done at home taking advantage of the beautiful sunny summer weather.

Congratulations to Noelle and Mike, the very proud and happy parents, on their baby boy!

5 Pointz LIC engagement session

This Throw back Thursday I am posting an engagement portrait from 2009.  The engagement session took place in Long Island City and Astoria, Queens with Noelle and Mike who were newly engaged.  5 Pointz was a graffiti mecca at the time  - an entire city block, a warehouse decorated with graffiti art.  Lots of creative and amazing street art and aerosol paintings covered the building.  Unfortunately 5 Pointz was sold earlier this year and the new owner will be converting the building into luxury condominiums.

Had some great engagement sessions, wedding portraits and even after wedding portraits at 5 Pointz over the years.

Here is one image from Noelle and Mike’s session.  Noelle and Mike just welcomed their first baby, a little boy less than a week old.

Chic and lovely City Hall wedding

Jordan and Dean, a Manhattan couple, had their wedding ceremony downtown Manhattan in City Hall.

It was a summer Friday and City Hall was packed with couples getting married and their families and loved ones.

Jordan looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress and Manolos.  There are wedding shoes and there are THE wedding shoes.

Her blue Manolos are the perfect wedding shoes, which became even more popular after Sarah Jessica Parker’s character wore them for her City Hall wedding in the movie Sex and the city.

After the ceremony, the couple and their close family returned to their apartment where we took some portraits and  celebrated with some champagne.  Jordan and Dean and their loved ones had their wedding dinner at The Four Seasons restaurant.

Congratulations and best wishes to Jordan and Dean!

Love and laughter and a zebra

“All you need in the world is love and laughter. That’s all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other.” wrote August Wilson.

This Throw Back Thursday I am sharing a photograph from a 2007 engagement session with Eunice and Martin.

These two couldn’t stop smiling and making each other laugh.  One of my favorite shot was this silly photo with a fake zebra at a very popular rooftop bar in the Flatiron.

The best photos are always the ones when the couples are not afraid to be themselves and have fun at the engagement sessions.
