NATHANIEL'S 1ST BIRTHDAY | HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

NATHANIEL’S 1ST BIRTHDAY | HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, everyone!  I’d like to introduce you all to Nathaniel, who recently turned 1!  This adorable little guy just has the most contagious smile… Big Daddy Andrew, originally had the idea to suspend a ton of balloons on a self-made net, but it didn’t work as well as planned, so he strung up the balloons instead… either way, the house was decorated just splendidly for this occasion!  Chi and I were actually on our honeymoon the day Nate was born, so we were unable to witness his birth, but there was no way I would miss capturing his 1st birthday!  Obviously, the whole kids scene now has a great deal more meaning to us, and it was a joy to be able to capture the celebration on camera.  Enjoy the photos!

RAQUEL AND DANNY’S ENGAGEMENT SESSION | HIGH LINE, NYC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I’m happy to introduce Raquel and Danny, two gorgeous people who found their way to each other, and I’m honored to be shooting their wedding in 2013!  It was just a fantastic time photographing them at the High Line in Manhattan- the elevated park converted from a former rail yard, and definitely one of the coolest places I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting.  It’s also still expanding, so I’m extremely eager to see what they come up with next!  As for Raquel and Danny, I might as well have hired models for this shoot.  It was just too easy capturing fantastic e-session photos for this beautiful couple.  I loved how dramatic these came out, and I hope you’ll agree  😉  Thanks to Chi-Chi (who is recovering from labor quite well, for those of you wondering.  and, of course, Joel has just been our lil angel =-)) and Andrew for assisting me on the engagement shoot.  Enjoy the images!

“THIS IS HUGE.”

CHI-CHI’S MATERNITY SESSION | HUDSON VALLEY, NY PHOTOGRAPHER

Happy Friday, everyone!  I felt like this week would be as best a time as any to post Chi’s maternity shots before the baby actually comes, as the due date was in a couple of weeks.  I guess this is baby’s first lesson to us, that he’s the boss.  ABOUT AN HOUR BEFORE TYPING THIS, CHI-CHI’S WATER BROKE!!!  The contractions are inconsistent for now, but we’re headed to the hospital soon.

You know how they say that the best part of anything is the anticipation?  Well, in this case, as excited as I am, I’m even more nervous!  I’ve never held a newborn in my entire life, as they’ve always seemed so tiny and incredibly delicate.  That said, I’ve been told to prepare for one of the most unbelievably joyful moments a human being can feel in his/her lifetime.  I understand that the forthcoming responsibility is enormous, but so too, will be the love and patience  =)  So are we ready?

Car seat installed?  Check.

All of our stuff packed for the hospital?  Check.

Are we ready for the physical toll and lack of sleep?  Definitely not.

4am feedings, diaper changes, and just crying for the sake of crying?  err, also probably not.

That moment he first clutches your finger for the first time with his tiny digits?  Without question.

PS- For those of you wondering, Chi-Chi is doing well right now,  just uncomfortable and somewhat swollen.  Oh, and she wants the baby OUT.  Like yesterday.  😉

 

 

 

 

We cannot wait to meet you.
