It is always such an honor every time a new client contacts me to schedule a portrait session, and this family was no exception. Having just recently moved out of the city, these beautiful girls traveled back in from Hoboken for a picturesque central park portrait session and their personalities just sparkled. They have such sweet adoration for each other and it shined through in all their images, as they played in the warm glowing sunshine. 



I specialize in family and children’s portrait photography. Please call me 732.207.9393 or

The Rainbow Leaf

 Fall Children’s Portraits in Central Park

Family Photographer, Natural Kids Photography – New York, NY

There is nothing more refreshing than the first few days of fall. The brisk air and nature’s golden confetti trickling down as if to say “winter is coming, come out and play before the ground turns white and the sky becomes gray”. My eldest son is 5 years old and just at the age where his curiosity is peaking in such a way that I get little glimpses into the world through his eyes. He reaches down and shrieks with joy “Mommy! I found a rainbow leaf! Can you believe it? It’s yellow, green and brown!” The genuine wonder and amazement children experience through discovery leaves me in awe. Surely it would be bliss to never grow up!

Bright Sunshine! creativity exercise

Many photographers prefer scheduling sessions during the early morning or late afternoon hours due to the softer light qualities at that time. Occaisionally, such as during the longer days of summer it is just not possible to schedule at the ideal natural light hours. Today I ventured out with my little ones at the worst time possible. All of these images were created between 11:30am – 1pm, though I did not photograph the entire time. I started out with just my little one in the garden while my older son attended a class at Kidville Midtown West. After his class we grabbed a bite to eat and resumed after a short lunch. These days my big 4 year old just doesn’t have any patience for my camera, so we explored the foilage, made rock soup and found (really a gardner gave us) a yellow tomato. Tomatos are the only vegetable my little man loves to eat so he was eager to have a picture made of it. Enjoy…

A Third Birthday Party at FAO Schwarz | NYC Birthday Photographer, Natural Kids Photography,

What could be more special than celebrating your big 3rd birthday on the big piano at FAO with all your friends? Yup I know, I can’t think of anything better either!

Little Ben’s birthday at FAO was one of the most exciting amd energetic birthday’s I’ve ever photographed. His very own live toy soldier started out the festivities with a bit of juggling and games that had all the kids running and squealing in laughter. And just when we thought the kiddo’s would be all tuckered out, we headed out to the iconic Big Piano for a private play session that followed a mini concert from Ben’s personal toy soldier! As if that wasn’t enough, Ben then had the honor of blowing out the candles on a super cute monkey cake from Sugar & Plumm NYC – who makes the most delicious cakes, cupcakes and desserts!!! If you are ever out on the Upper West Side, be sure to stop in for a treat or just some lunch as the entire menu is  “yumm”. Actually, the decor alone is worth a stop.

This little guy had a blast of a celebration. All the kids were filled with such excitement and the energy in the air combined with all the warmth and love from his friends made this event one of the record books. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them!
