NEWBORN NOAH | POUGHKEEPSIE, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

My great friends from the Mid-Hudson Chinese Christian Church (they were Chi-Chi and my wedding coordinators!), Sam and Winnie gave birth to a beautiful baby boy at Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie, NY, and I had the honor of photographing his very first full day meeting the world!  So odd how everyone around you seems to do things at the same time- getting engaged, marriage, having children.. perhaps eventually our future children (should we be blessed enough to have any!) will all be running around and thinking the same things someday…

CLIFTON’S 30TH BIRTHDAY BRUNCH | FOREST HILLS, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

A few weeks ago I photographed my cousin’s 30th birthday brunch in Queens.  Great Mexican food at 5 Burro Cafe, and cupcakes, his gorgeous new daughter, Georgia.. what more could you want?  Well, maybe the restaurant could’ve added a little better lighting… but hey, you work with what you’re given, right?  It’s so odd growing up together as kids and then all of a sudden you’re… an adult.  Awesome time had by all!
