At just a week old, I was able to photograph this sweet little girl. Babies grow and change so quickly, don’t miss out on capturing these moments!Read More
Had the opportunity to shoot School Portraits for two different schools towards the end of last year. Had a blast and almost every kid came out perfect (check out the last photo=])
Had the opportunity to shoot this First Birthday/Cake Smash at my home studio a few weeks ago and it couldn't have been any cuter.
I had the pleasure of shooting a good family friends' daughter's 6th birthday last weekend and fell in love with these pictures of kids struggling to eat their cupcakes. I hope this brightens your day a bit if it needs brightening.
Got to shoot Circle of Friends' school portraits the other day. It was a great time and the pre-schoolers were extremely well behaved! Here are just a few of my favorites. I'm almost done editing for those of you who had their child's portraits taken!
Calvin had his photo taken for his 100th-day celebration. Traditionally, in the Korean culture, a baby is kept at home as they are thought to be the most susceptible to sickness during that time. So, they are thrown a 100th-day party to celebrate their life and to introduce them to family and friends for the first time.
For the party the child is dressed in traditional Korean clothes. A male child wears the traditional hood worn by unmarried youths (which can be seen above). The child is seated before a table of various foods and objects such as thread, books, notebooks, brushes, ink and money which have all been given to the family by friends and relatives. The child is urged to pick up an object from the table, as it is believed the one selected first will foretell the child's future. If the child picks up a writing brush or book, for example, he is destined to be a scholar. If he picks up money or rice, he will be wealthy; cakes or other food, a government official; a sword or bow, a military commander. If the child picks up the thread, it is believed he will live a long life.
It's always interesting to see what the child will pick and whether or not it falls in line with what their parents would have chosen for them! Cal chose a golf ball first and then a computer mouse which might represent an athlete and a computer whiz for those of you that were curious.
Zach's second birthday was coming up and his mom decided to have some photos taken of her son at my home studio. Zach was immediately comfortable in the house which made for a very relaxed shoot.
She has such pretty eyes! Shot this at the Veteran's Memorial at Eisenhower Park in Nassaue County, NY.
