Baby Cole was ten days new when I met him and took his portraits. He is born into a warm, loving family who adores him.
Cole is cute as a button with a great big smile.
Fall is one of the best seasons to photograph families in Central Park. The colors and the weather is wonderful and the photographs make perfect holiday gifts and holiday photo cards to send out. We used beautiful locations such as the Bow Bridge, Strawberry Fields and the Lake as the backdrops for the portraits. Here are some of my favorite images of the families I have had the fun photographing.
Springtime and cherry blossoms are my favorite time of the year. I have been photographing my daughter with the cherry blossoms since she was born.
This spring we found a beautiful spot in Central Park where several cherry trees created a beautiful, enchanted pink haven. Emily had a lovely time collecting the pink petals from the ground, walking barefoot on a soft pink carpet made of petals and dancing, twirling among the cherry trees.
Cherry blossom festivals or as the Japanese call them Sakura festivals are popular in New York City and around the world. I have visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden many times in the past to enjoy the cherry blossom season.
Many cherry trees have a short window of time when they are in full bloom and I am happy I was able to enjoy them this year at their peak in Central Park, New York City.
Alissa and Paul, a lovely couple from Texas, were enjoying their honeymoon in New York City.
They wanted to capture some newlyweds portraits during their walk in Central Park. Central Park just hit its peak for the fall season and everywhere we went there were beautiful autumn colors and bright foliage.
The newlyweds enjoyed their Central Park visit and we created some romantic and stunning portraits of them. Congratulations to Alissa and Paul! It was a pleasure working with you!

Logan turned one and he was celebrated by friends and family in a colorful party setting on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. Logan’s mom chose Eric Carle’s classic children’s book, The very hungry caterpillar, for inspiration and as the birthday party theme. There were caterpillar water bottles, balloons, musical instruments, cake pops, lollipops, rocker, photo banner, milestone board and many more caterpillar decorations.
Amazing birthday cake, candy table and the Little Maestros made the party fun and entertaining for everyone. Happy birthday to Logan, it was a fantastic birthday party!
