Here’s a prelude to tomorrow’s post of a super cool opportunity I got to tag team with my fellow blogger and very dear friend Heather Brooks of SportsGirl at Milk Studios today. Stay tune…especially if you’re a sports fan!
Can’t wait to introduce you to a 4 month old city baby, Mackenzie & her family! Mackenzie is an adorable bright eyed girl who happens to be Jack & Harrison’s playdate (the adorable twin boys I got to photograph a few weeks back). More images to come of this city baby & her beautiful parents whose love for Mackenzie radiated from this shoot.

Bringing in Spring with a little enchanted shoot to smile at for a while….
The final post to Michelle + Jack rain drenched shoot. Enjoy!
When Michelle first contacted me for an engagement shoot, I couldn’t waaaait to meet them and do the shoot. She had filled me in on some outfit ideas and accessories they wanted to use. From the stylish details she gave me, I instantly drew up a vision of how the images were going to look. The challenge was to make it retro in feel but still keep a contemporary relevancy.

Jack apparently didn’t stop at the suit, as he had a french cuff shirt made to wear cuff links that pulled out the red from the threads of the suit and the socks. It was a serious “GQ” level of style. Michelle, beautiful, extremely smart, easy going, works on Wall Street and held her own in the style department as well. I went gaga over the fur vest and perfectly done hair. Might I add, this woman has flawless skin! I mean talk about an easy editing job from this shoot! Another world traveller and full of great stories, I had such a fun time with this renaissance couple.
I LOVE photo shoots in the rain, especially when it’s in New York City. Call me crazy, but I love when you can transform a challenging climate into something beautiful that others can appreciate with new eyes. I also love it when I get clients like Michelle & Jack who did not waver at the thought of running around in the rain with me!
For this shoot, I had the hardest time editing down to a few images. I know I always say that but it’s because each shoot feels like a new favorite of mine (I guess I have tons of favorites at this point). For this prelude to the official post, I decided not to contain myself and to show a few images instead of just one.
Any Way! I have so much to say about Michelle & Jack but want to save the details for the official post.
More to come later this week!
This client lives that stylish New York City life with a cute bi-level apartment in the coveted Gramercy Park neighborhood. She’s a corporate professional with a closet of designer clothes and an overflow of Louboutins to flaunt. She has a bucket list which includes a hopeful acting gig (another reason for this shoot). Her wall of bookshelves includes over a dozen travel books of all the beautiful countries she has seen. Though I won’t give away her age, I was quite impressed with not only how young she looks but her youthful spirit as well. There’s also a resiliency to her character that I admire and an attitude of looking the unknown in the eyes. Her middle name is Faith and that says it all.
This shoot also had meaning for me as it was part of my client’s refresh after going through a big life change. I believe every woman deserves to feel beautiful, to know she can show it and flaunt it without any reserve. I dedicate this shoot to all the woman out there who needs a reminder that there is a lot of power in being a woman. So don’t ever be ashamed to flaunt who you are.
