Owen's 11 Month Portraits, New York City Family Photography

I've been photographing my adorable little cousin Owen once a month since he was born.  It's been such an amazing experience getting to watch him grow each month from a tiny little baby into a little toddler with his own personality shining through.  We've been stuck inside for the last few months with the polar vortex beating down on NYC, but we finally had a day in the 50s and headed to Central Park for some fun 11 month portraits!

A Brooklyn Bridge Sunrise Engagement Session, New York City Engagement Photography

Kelsey, Noah and I came together early one Spring morning on the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge just before sunrise to photograph a gorgeous engagement session as the beautiful coral tones of sunrise washed over them.  We walked all the way across the bridge then took a leisurely stroll through DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights photographing along the way.  They are so incredibly sweet together and it was wonderful to capture genuine moments of love and joy between them.  Kelsey and Noah met in college in Manhattan and went on their first date to Shake Shack so after our shoot we went there for a bite and I couldn't resist snapping a few more of them there too.  They were so adorable someone came up to us and asked if we were shooting a Shake Shack commercial!  I knew Kelsey and Noah would be so much fun to photograph when we first met and she told me- "We both love the color green, spicy food, and, of course, each other."  And I think that love for each other is evident in each and every photograph.  Can't wait for their wedding in a couple weeks!

Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration, San Francisco Wedding Photography

“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world," he said wisely one day, "but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen." ― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

This little styled shoot / anniversary session took place on a gorgeous Spring morning in the Presidio in San Francisco.  We found our own little Secret Garden spot in the park that felt straight out of a fairy tale and photographed as the sun broke through the clouds and illuminated the morning.  Insanely gorgeous florals by Natalie Bowen Designs, stationary by Rifle Paper Co. and flower crowns by Serenity Crystal.

Check out the feature of this lovely shoot on Grey Likes Weddings!
