Maternity photos in Manhattan NYC

Having a baby is arguably the most important milestone in an adult's life. One of the best things about this line of work, is being lucky enough to capture memories of this transition to parenthood for new parents. I won't lie... This maternity session was easily my most anticipated photo session this year. The session was booked several months ago when mom and dad had only just learned they were expecting because they were just so excited about becoming parents and getting document this special time in their lives

Newborn photos in Washington Heights NYC

I really couldn’t be happier to share this sweet newborn session with you all. It’s probably no secret to anyone in the country that this has been one of the coldest NYC winters in years. But I couldn't think of anything better to do this winter than welcome the pitter-patter of tiny baby feet - curling up with newborn life is the perfect antidote to the frigid winter temperatures, and that’s exactly what this lovely family has been doing

Fresh 48 photos in Manhattan NYC

Having a baby is one of the most important days in a new parent’s life. Fresh 48 photography is a special session for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire birth documented. Known as a “Fresh 48” session, this is a perfect way to capture the brand newness of a newborn in the hospital within the first 48 hours of birth – these lifestyle sessions are perfect for remembering that first day forever

Couples photos in DUMBO Brooklyn

This session was a great way to finish off the year. It’s always enjoyable for me to meet couples who are travelling to New York, like this energetic and good looking due who hail from Florida, because I get to hang out with them at some of NYC’s best locations. Lucky we scheduled the session when we did because not long after our session, the temps turned arctic and they still haven’t bounced back

Couples photo session in DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park

If you ask me, people don’t do couples shoots often enough. So I am always delighted when I get to shoot a couples session. This lovely duo, who call Oklahoma home, came to NYC for a quick vacation and, out of the millions of photographers in NYC, asked me to document their love. I was touched to learn that this is the first time they have had professional photos together

Family photos in DUMBO Brooklyn

'Tis the season for vacation and travel. You could say New York City has its good points in any season, but the holiday season in December is pretty spectacular - the lights, the shows, the festivities - the chaotic pace doesn't lessen just because the temps drop. This lovely family, visiting from Alabama,  decided to visit NYC for their vacation, and although these images may appear as though they were taken on a beautiful fall day, I assure you it was coldy, cold, cold outside

Family photos in Midtown Manhattan

It’s really wonderful getting to meet adventurous families. And this family fits right into that category. I was lucky enough to be asked to document a few memories during their annual vacation to New York from Luxembourg – they visit each year right around this time of year. Despite the weather being on the chilly side, we had a hoot. Both mom and dad know their way around town having both lived in New York City for about 10 years some time ago. I think this family epitomizes all that you want from a great family session

Newborn photos in Midtown Manhattan

I love, love, loved my session with this sweet family of 3 in Midtown Manhattan. For one thing, this sweet little 8 week old was about as serene as newborn babies come. I put it down to his sweet loving nature, which he no doubt inherited from his sweet and easygoing parents. But I also think waiting to have  newborn photos until your babe is a few weeks older also has something to do with it

Family photos in the most beautiful loft home just outside of NYC

One of the great things about being an NYC family photographer is seeing all the creative ways in which we use our apartment spaces. While one of the most common statements I hear from clients is that they believe their apartment is too small or not pretty enough for a shoot, I’ve always found a way to make it work. But that clearly wasn’t the case with this session. This session proves that when you venture just outside of NYC, you get amazing spaces without the amazing rents

NYC maternity session at the stylish & sophisticated W Hotel

I was lucky enough to meet this charismatic duo on their recent trip to NYC from one of my favorite states, Colorado. They reached out before their trip as they're expecting and were keen to beautifully document this special period of their lives. I couldn't have been happier. Although they frequent NYC for business several times a year, this trip was all about fun on their babymoon

A sunny fall morning in Queens with the loveliest family of 3

I'm rarely stuck for words for my blog posts, but this session left me a little speechless. You can always hope that you are going to have clients as lovely as this family, but it's so wonderful when it actually happens. I couldn't have stepped into a warmer more caring home, or a home on a more greener and peaceful street. I was greeted by the family's furry friend who packs a punch for his size and clearly has the status of child, rather than pet, in the family

A sunny morning spent in NYC's Brooklyn Bridge Park

While Australia is a small country in terms of population, we certainly do get out and about. Almost every session I've had recently has been with Aussies living in New York City or Aussies visiting New York City. I was lucky enough to meet this family on their recent travels to The Big Apple all the way from Perth, Western Australia

An NYC family session spent on a sunny morning in Central Park

I just finished writing a blog post last week about how easily I bump into Aussies in NYC (see that blog post here) and I again found myself meeting another Aussie at this session. This family epitomizes so much of a New York family – they’re a true blend of different parts of the world - a Swiss dad, an Aussie mom (or mum may be more appropriate here) and their American born daughter. And what a sweet family of three they are

An NYC family session spent in the Flower Capital of Manhattan

I've been lucky enough to know this mom since our kiddos were newborns. We live close by and I remember looking around for activities to do with my newborn when I was on maternity leave and finding her in that search. Once we got talking, we quickly learned we had shared backgrounds, both having ventured to New York City from our prior lives in the Land Down Under.

An NYC family session with a handsome little 3 month old

One of the privileges of being an NYC family and newborn photographer is that I get to see families grow. You probably remember this family from the session we did back when Baby K was a wee newborn, so you can imagine how excited I was to do a 3 month session. I wrote in my prior blogpost how much this mom and dad care about their family photos, and this just proves how right I was

Welcome little one - A fun family session uptown in Harlem

I exchanged a couple of emails with this mom when she was midway through her pregnancy some months ago. Originally the session was conceived as maybe a gift (what else do you get an expecting mom who already has everything from baby number one?!) but then I was delighted to receive an email from her wonderfully caring husband, who really wanted to make sure his wife had her session with me, and arranged it himself. I was tickled pink
