Bay Ridge Cake Smash Photographer | Leila

Bay Ridge Cake Smash Photographer Leila is related to a wonderful client of mine. Her 1st cousin was a great cake smasher for me so we had very high hopes for this little one. We started with two setups prior to the smash. I think its equally as important to get some cute portraits before the...

NYC Child photographer | Liam

NYC Child photographer I think I may have died from cuteness from this session. I met Liam’s mama back in my days of working in the fashion industry. So happy that years later I can still connect to former colleagues doing something that can bring them so much happiness. She missed out on taking newborn pictures...

Forest Hills Cake Smash | Evita

Forest Hills Cake Smash I was referred to Evita’s mom by my past assistant Jeke. Evita’s family were the sweetest people and made my job too easy.
