Sara & Michael’s Winter NYC Engagement Session

I have spent a lot of time over the past twelve years waiting in public places for people I haven’t met in person yet. Not to say they’re strangers, because they’re anything but. Sara and I corresponded via email for weeks leading up to her and Michael’s engagement session. I watched as close to a hundred people – many couples included – entered the park before she and Michael arrived, but the second I saw them walking hand-in-hand down the street, I knew it was them. It was like they were old friends. Strolling through Central Park and the Upper East Side side with them, hearing their story – how they met, fell in love, got engaged, and all the plans they were making for the most beautiful wedding this fall. No words can tell you about Sara and Michael what these photos can. They are great friends, first and foremost. They have a rich history that’s woven through the streets we walked. And they are really, really good sports about cold weather. All in all, they are my kind of people and I am so glad we found each other.

    Welcome Clara Jude

    Clara Jude, I’ll never forget the trip to Thanksgiving dinner where I found out that you are a part of our world. I texted your mom, as I had done several times over the previous two weeks, checking in, as I do, to see how she was feeling and if there was any sign of your impending arrival. Photos arrived, screen caps of the night you were born, building suspense. Your unintentional home birth and your ROCKSTAR parents (especially your Mama!) consumed my thoughts. My friends had delivered a baby AT HOME. UNPLANNED. Sweet girl, you are in the best hands.

        Bailey & Harry’s Buttermilk Falls Engagement Session

        Bailey & Harry wanted to incorporate the Milton train station, which Harry’s late father played a role in restoring, into their engagement session. It’s a small, beautiful station on the water, and on the day we met there was a fog clinging to the melting snow. I love including personal details like this into sessions. It adds an extra layer of something special to photos that are already so filled with love.
