Hoboken Maternity Shoot {Sarah + Matthew}

It was a beautiful but HOT Sunday afternoon in Hoboken for Sarah and Matt's maternity shoot! As always I love getting to meet and hang with new couples. Sarah was such a champ rocking her baby bump heels and all :) We started out in their gorgeous apartment that had just about the best light ever and then we made our way around their neighborhood for a few more pics. We had such a great time! Can't wait to meet their little one! Congrats again guys! Xo

Brooklyn Promenade Engagement Session {Daniele + Matt}!

It all started a year ago when Matt contacted me to photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend Daniele! I was under strict orders that I MUST not be seen. So I naturally became the crouching tiger hidden photographer hiding behind trees and shooing people out of the way as I awaited their arrival! Their location was quite the unique one but their story explains it all! Let's just say it was a success! I'm super lucky to have been able to capture that once in a lifetime moment for them but also because I got to hang with them and finally meet them in person for their engagement shoot! I'll see them again in a few months for their big wedding day! You have to read their story below! Ho

Cherry Blossom Themed Maternity Shoot {Daniela + Jamel} Prospect Park - Brooklyn, NY

I just love spring and all of the beauty it offers especially when you get to photograph one of your best college girlfriends growing family! We spent the afternoon at the gorgeous Prospect Park in Brooklyn. That morning was a rainy one and then continued to rain on and off throughout the day but we decided to go ahead with our shoot anyway. Since they are having a baby girl, we just had to find some cherry blossoms! When we got to the park, it was if this intimate little spot under these winding old trees was just waiting for us. Covered in cherry blossom petals and protected from the rain by the twisted branches and leaves, it was the perfect spot! Jamel's love for Daniela and their love t

Rutgers University Spring Engagement Session {Linda + Matt}

How cool is it to do your engagement shoot not only at your college but exactly where you met?! That is exactly what Linda and Matt had planned and it worked out just perfect! I had never been to Rutgers so it was a treat for me, what a beautiful school! I had no idea how large the campus was. I always love being on college campuses with the mix of old and new buildings, the beautiful landscape and most importantly the idea that the world is yours is all around you.. I loved listening to their story and talking wedding planning with them as we strolled around. Linda and Matt were so adorable together, making each other laugh at every second! I'm so excited to shoot their wedding this July! C

Hoboken Family Lifestyle Session {Colbi Turns One}!

Miss Colbi turned one a few weekends ago and she celebrated her first year with balloons, her older sister Harper, her family and a yummmmy cake smash! I could not believe we were photographing Colbi turning one, it was just the other day I was shooting Harper turning one and now she is 3! I'm so grateful to celebrate these milestones with them! We started our shoot on the iconic cobblestone streets of Hoboken and made our way to Pier A for the cake smash. It was a blast! Happy Birthday Colbi!! Xo

Hoboken Family Lifestyle Session {Kai Turns One}!

I love nothing more than to get to capture a family as they get older! I have had the privilege of photographing this sweet Hoboken Family all the way from when Kai was just a newborn and now he is already one! Time seriously flies so fast and being able to freeze these precious moments is the soul behind my photography. I always know that with this silly bunch we're going to have the best time playing tag and making silly faces! I loved hearing that the kids were excited to "take pictures" again! Happy 1st Birthday Kai!
