I don’t recall exactly how this session came about, but Gina & I chatted about capturing a session on film; documenting her and her husband as they are, right now. Gina is a photographer (an amazingly talented photographer) and travels a lot, not only for her photography work, but also inspiring people around the country. Matt is busy too; involved in his community, as a teacher and training for a half marathon with Gina by his side. Since downtime is rare for this couple, they try to spend weekend mornings together when they can, making breakfast (Matt flipping pancakes!), lounging in their PJs and hanging out with their pup, Mya. All creative credit to this session is completely due to Gina’s brilliant ideas and planning. I was so happy to be a part of this shoot and document the laughter, smiles and hugs (and body slams). Not to mention their beautiful, airy home. Hello, can I move in?!
Thank you Zeidlers!
I feel like I should preface this post by stating the fact that I don’t photograph babies! I love babies, and I think they are adorable (especially this baby!) but photographing them is an art form in itself and it takes much skill and patience to be a successful photographer of this genre! I know so many talented photographers that excel in this area and I respect them so much because I feel like it’s so very challenging!
That being said, how could I resist this little guy?! A few weeks ago when a fresh coat of snow was falling over the beautiful city of Minneapolis, I posted on my Facebook page that I was dying to do a winter wonderland shoot. When past bride, Kristi posted that she and husband and baby would gladly volunteer as models, I couldn’t resist! We met that very day and spent 15 (cold) minutes capturing their beautiful family in the snow! Little Hugh is already as stylish as Mom and Dad and a natural model! I just wanted to share a few of these images on my blog. You can also check out Kristi & Kevin’s engagement session and wedding day, both of which were featured on Style Me Pretty (here and here!).
Thank you for everything Kristi, Kevin and Hugh! :D
Sarah & Allen love to travel and are planning their May 2012 destination wedding in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, so it only made sense to include their favorite hobby (travel, of course!) in their engagement session! Sarah and Allen live in Jackson Heights, but ventured downtown for their session at the South Street Seaport and Financial District. I spend my NYC time living in the Financial District and it’s one of my favorite neighborhoods. There are great little pockets and so much character. Sarah & Allen and I also came up with fun little props, like the “Bon Voyage” banner and suitcases, which will be used on their wedding day.
Can’t wait for your big day, guys! Is it May yet?! :)
