Manhattan Cake Smash | Layla

Manhattan Cake Smash This was my first time working with little Layla. She was apprehensive of my assistant and I at first but eventually warmed up. Her expressions were incredible and I was swooning over her eyelashes. The first two setups were a bit of a challenge because she wasn’t super happy but we played...

Long Island Cake Smash | Owen

Long Island Cake Smash I shoot this family very often and I am so grateful they keep coming back for their portraits. Owen’s mama really values the importance of photographs and I just adore her little boys. Owen was now turning 1 and running faster than his sitter session. It was definitely a challenge to...

Westchester Baby Photographer | Amelia

NYC Cake Smash Session | Ella

NYC Cake Smash Session I met little Ella a year prior for her newborn session. Now fast forward a year later and I am back capturing her 1st birthday photoshoot. She looks like she was all smiles but I assure you there were some tears and moments of fleeing. This is why you hire a...

Staten Island 1st Birthday | Liana

Staten Island 1st Birthday I have been photographing this family for a few years now. It was such a joy to have them come visit from Maryland for their daughter, Liana’s 1st birthday shoot. We tried re-creating the bed setup from her brother’s shoot 2 years prior. Liana was an amazing cake smasher. I don’t...
