A Darling Doljanchi and First Birthday Party| Upper West Side Birthday Party Photographer

Little Emma’s first birthday party at Kidville Midtown West was filled activities that included playdoh, temp tattoos, a musician and customized acoustic concert,  gym time, two cakes, Dol towers and of course it was also rich in culture. During the Doljabi, little Emma was initially a bit reluctant to choose an item but finally selected the tennis ball, so perhaps she has an athletic future ahead of her. 

 Emma’s cakes were custom made by Amy’s Bread in Hell’s Kitchen.

This family knows how to throw a party!

Play-doh, planes, stickers and a super awesome choo choo train cake made by grandma that literally put the icing on this two year old’s birthday!

This sweet little guy just turned TWO and his whole family turned out to put together a smash of a birthday party, hosted at Kidville Midtown West in Manhattan. I’m still in awe of the choo-choo train cake his grandmother made. Actually, he had two cakes… wonder if he’ll have three next year. Mom did a fantastic job planning the custom decor with the venue party planner. She also hand made one of the sweetest photo banners I’ve yet to see, and ordered a custom made shirt for the birthday boy. No detail was overlooked at this party, I can only imagine what future years will bring.

Happy Birthday Kai!

And Baby Makes Five! | Manhattan Newborn Photographer

Raising a family in Manhattan is like no other experience and comes with all the normal new baby challenges, along with some unique big city challenges, yet this family seems to do it all with grace and joy… and three little ones in tow! Having my own three little ones in the city, I hold a deep admiration for those who choose to stay and embrace city life with a complete family.

When this little one arrived his mom had a strong desire to capture the irreplaceable moments in the first days after their newborn came home, as they hadn’t done so with their first two children. What made this newborn session extra heartwarming is that it was the very first time his older siblings were able to hold, touch, and look closely at all of their new brother’s cute little features. Mom had kept a distance between the children for the first few days home, as the older siblings were recovering from colds. So, it all came together in a magical moment as his siblings had been longing to hold him close and dote over him. The energy and love this family had just filled their home and I immediately knew that these images would be very very special.

Pastel Sunset Over Manhattan | Long Island City Family Photographer

It’s no secret, my favorite season is fall. The air is brisk and filled with energy, the trees explode with golden hues and the sun sits just a little lower in the sky creating gorgeous light and pastel sunsets.  It’s no wonder that fall is the most popular time for clients to schedule sessions. Fall is like our little gift from mother nature, encouraging us to spend as much of our time outside as possible before the city turns white and is covered in snow. This session was on one of those last few beautiful days before winter crept in. The air was quite brisk and I had to work a bit with the wind, I think my fingers were nearly frozen by the time we wrapped up. But these sweet little girls didn’t seem fazed at all by any of that. Besides, I’m starting to get a little old now and my circulation is not so great anymore. The sunset did not disappoint and this gorgeous little family was overflowing with energy and joy. Against the backdrop of Manhattan with a family that shares so much love for each other, we set out to create images for their family to treasure for generations
