Hi! You’re here!
Thank you so much for looking me up. And now the awkward “tell me about yourself” section. Here goes!
I’m a family photographer in Brooklyn, NY. I take photos of newborns, babies, toddlers, kids and the tall people they come with. I have two kiddos of my own and no pet dog at the moment…UPDATE! UPDATE! We’ve adopted a dog! She hails from the south and is still quite uncertain about this whole city living thing.
I was voted best smile in high school, despite having knocked out my front tooth playing flag football in the fifth grade. I was also voted most dramatic - interpret as you will.
Things I WILL NOT do at a photo session:
Ask your kids to smile.
Expect them to cooperate or be on their best behavior.
Think your apartment is messy, cluttered, or too small.
Expect you to do anything but put some clothes on and show up.
Things I WILL do:
Get your kids to smile.
Run around like a crazy person, dance with abandon, make faces & moo like a cow.
Go nuts over your newborn.
Encourage lots of play, even a little naughtiness.
Embrace messy hair, fingers in noses and mismatched shoes.
Maybe you’re here because you’re looking for a “lifestyle” photographer or a photographer with a “documentary” approach. Maybe you just want to look at photos that make you happy. That’s what I’m after. That’s what I try to shoot.
Speaking of the shoot, session lengths are about an hour (two-three for newborns) and can take place at your home, at an outdoor location, or both.
Sometimes things go wrong. There are meltdowns, sicknesses and weather shenanigans. We'll work around these and reschedule if it makes sense. No stress.
