This is San Francisco! When you're 3 years old with a sister on the way!

And the story continues...!

Only this time from the other side of the country!

I was so happy that travels were taking me to California...because it worked out we could do a shoot just in time for birthday number 3 for this little guy...in the final months before he becomes a big brother...in their new home of San Francisco! (Which btw, is a damn fine city, I wish it was CLOSER i would go every month, just to feel the fresh air, the legendary cloud movement with a personality of its, the rolling streets that make it like no other.)

Although I'll miss you in New York, I'm so excited for you guys!
THANK YOU for inviting me to photograph such a special time!

Newborn Photography, 18 Days!

Ahhh, how sweet is he!

I really adore my newborn shoots I have to say. I love the process... of meeting a family at the door for the first time, and then spending 3 super intimate hours together, during a pretty vulnerable time...freshly home from the hospital, probably haven't even seen many friends yets, sleep deprived, learning to navigate the life of and with a newborn...and then opening up your home to a stranger with a camera and lots of equipment...I am SO grateful for each and every shoot...and I leave feeling so cozy inside, knowing we together (trust me these shoots are not all me, thank you to the parents!) recorded a really, really special time together...so, thank you!

This shoot at 18 days was that exact process...and I have a huge smile on my face as I edit and remember it all...

p.s. I'm obsessed with mom Jennifer's eyes...omg!!

All the best to you guys!

New York Family Photography with this Gorgeous Quartet!

I met these guys earlier this year in St. John when I was photographing Leigh + Roberto's amazing wedding...we clicked like that, and realized we were neighbors too! So I was super excited skip the taxi and roll myself and my gear to their place and see them as a whole crew at home. (on a World Cup Sunday too! Dad Philippe was a trooper trying to only run from the shoot to the game when there were large bursts of crowd screaming...!)

Mom Ana is an art director, and I know myself how hard it is to be on the other side, to let it go and be IN the moment and hence the image...but I thought you rocked it Ana...being very present, but we still got to reep the benefits of your attention to detail when you opted to iron the pillow cases during a little break. haha!!

And big sister is so hilarious..and wise!...I feel like it's only a matter of weeks before I could call her for a coffee date and we could meet and talk about the world.

Thanks for inviting me over guys.
What a enjoyable morning it was with a family like yours!
