Friendships {ny - long island family photographer}

“Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.”
~Karen Ravn

These amazing parents remind me of this quote. Their home is filled with love, laughter, giving hearts and a wonderful place where three sweet boys have the room to grow, seek and dream as high as they can imagine. They are so genuine and compassionate and would do anything to help family and friends...even a stranger. They have hearts of gold and they are role models to all us parents out there. Their love for each other and their boys is enduring and their bond unbreakable. I am so lucky to have met them by chance three years ago and to have developed such a special friendship that I will always treasure! ; )

Embracing Family {ny li family and child photographer}

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.” -Kahlil Gibran

I first met these handsome boys and their beautiful mom this summer. I was so excited to be able to meet up with them again this past weekend, this time I had the honor of meeting dad too! One of my favorite things about meeting with my clients and their families is watching them embrace each other in ways that are so familiar to them but I find so unique and special. To see a child curl up and take a moment to rest his head on mom's lap or to watch their eyes light up as dad gets so excited to check out a mouse with his never stops amazing me to see all the beauty and love in each different relationship...and how powerful it is even in the smallest of moments.

Thank you for another wonderful session. I had so much fun with your family! I wish the boys the best in their soccer and football season...they are amazing! You both should feel so proud. Your boys are blessed to have the both of you! Enjoy a few pictures for now and if there is anything I can do in the meantime please know I am here.

My Best Friend...Thank you for being you!

This past weekend I attended the most amazing photography workshop held by MeRa Koh Photography. An inspirational husband and wife team that not only challenged me but also moved me and renewed my spirit. There really are no words to thank them for all they showed me about my own photography, but for also gently pushing me to dive deep within my own soul at the same time.

I could not think of any other way to make this experience any better then to be able to share it with one of the most inspirational woman in my life. I was able to ask a few friends to be "models" for 16 of us woman to practice what we learned over the weekend. The family below is one I hold so close in my heart. My best friend , her husband and one of my beautiful God daughters.

Jen, you know are my best friend and so much more. I can not even begin to thank you for all you have done for me, shown me and helped me through. You are gorgeous from the inside out and you inspire me to do better every day. I would not be where I am today with out you... Thank you for helping me exhale this weekend. HUGS
