A Beauty, A Chef and A Baby!

Where do I begin with this beautiful family?!?!?! As fellow Italians, I knew I was going to enjoy photographing them right off the bat!  Their story is beyond sweet…. they met through mutual friends after this beautiful mama was set up with someone else!  Alas, a date or two later and everyone knew that it was actually this beautiful lady and handsome chef that were meant to be.  A beautiful wedding, and wonderful life, and 9 months later and their sweet son Rocco joined them to really complete this beautiful love story.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’m always so humbled and honored when someone chooses me to document such special times in their lives.  I am beyond grateful to this beautiful family for the opportunity and hope to see more of them as this little guy grows up!  Here is a sneak peek of a few favs from their shoot!

Couldn’t help but end on a happy note with that adorable smile!!!!  More to come soon!!!!! xoxo

Bloomin’ Baby!

I absolutely could not resist a sneak peek from this afternoons family shoot in Oz Park.  Have I mentioned how much I love working with families?!?!??! This mama is always the one behind the camera, so her amazing husband treated her to some time with me so she could have some shots with her beautiful baby daughter.  There are SO many more amazing photos to come, but I absolutely HAD to share this one with all of you on this beautiful afternoon! Enjoy!

 

More to come!!!! xoxo

Baby Ballerina….

This shoot was just WAAAAYYY too fun!!! I’ve mentioned in a past blog post that this baby is particularly special because her mother is an amazing woman that I grew up with.  I don’t even know where the time has gone, that we are now at a point in our lives where many of us are having children of our own.  I hope to enjoy parenthood someday as much as this beautiful mama does.  When I found out that we were working with a tutu for this shoot I could not be more excited.  One of my favorite photos of ALL time is Marilyn Monroe in a ballerina tutu.  Though this beautiful baby is much younger than the iconic Marilyn, I couldn’t help but want to bring out the same feeling in this little girls photos.  After all, what little girl doesn’t think about being a beautiful ballerina at some point?!?!  Whether you’re the next Marilyn, or a beautiful little girl just beginning your life in this world, you can’t help but LOVE the tutu….  SO!!! Without further adieu… The Marilyn photo that inspired me:

 

And our PERFECT baby ballerina…..

 

As you can see, this little cutie is a natural in front of the camera….. just like the beautiful, iconic Marilyn Monroe.  I absolutely cannot wait to see her grow into an adorable toddler, then kid and eventually into the stunning woman she’s destined to be.  Until then…..
