10 Day Old Luca Alexander

So happy for Daisy + Luis  –so happy to be taking photos of their growing family. Luca Alexander is so beautiful and the way his big brother Damian kisses him and sweetly talks to him to soothe him. It is so sweet. Love the photo of the boys together most of all…I bet Daisy and Luis will too!

After taking photos of the boys, I set up a light and a beauty dish outside for some family photos. We heard a big ruckus in the shrubs at the back of their yard and a 300+ pound bear emerged. As soon as he saw us he made a hard right and I didn’t have a good angle for a photo. From quite a distance away I grabbed a shot of the bear crossing the street.

Surprise Marriage Proposal Photographer

My photo partner Jed
asked me to shoot his surprise wedding proposal to Amy on Saturday, 3/31/2018. I
was excited, honored and a little bit nervous. Though we scouted the Central
Park location a week ago, Jed was so nervous he was facing the wrong way
when he asked…maybe that was best as I got a great photo of Amy’s surprise.

Jed was pretending to get ready for a family shoot. Pulled his camera
out of the bag to take some test shots w Amy and danging from his lens
was a ribbon and engagement ring. At first Amy thought is was vegetation
hanging from his lens then she saw the sparkler!!

Meanwhile I was
wearing a hoodie w hood pulled down so that Amy wouldn’t recognize me.
She thought I was some shady guy looking to get close and steal Jed’s

So cool to have been a part of this! Love to you both!

Soccer Sports Photographer

Had a great time shooting the 1st ever Indian Hills HS alumni soccer event.

The IHHS Soccer Coach, Mike Calderon, is brother to long-time client Daisy Calderon so I have met Mike a few times already including Daisy’s Costa Rica wedding!

Anyway, I had a 300mm f/2.8 lens on loan from Nikon that I was to take whale watching…lens was perfect for shooting these matches as well.

I am not a big sports fan but taking photos of the event was great fun. Hopefully we can do it again next year!

Your Life Photographer

I have taken photos with and for Daisy and Luis and family many times. Engagement. Costa Rica wedding. Maternity photos. Newborn photos. Birthday photos. Family photos. Holiday photos. You name it! I love them for trusting me so many times.

When Daisy told me she was pregnant again I was excited to learn they were going to hire me again, but just for newborn photos. I knew they likely wanted some maternity/family photos with their son Damian while they were still a family of 3.

Next snowfall, I texted Daisy with the idea of a quick shoot during the snowfall by the Ramapo River. Close to where I shot their engagement photos.

They came right over –arrived as I was finishing shoveling my driveway.

I brought my Nikon D5, 85mm f/1.4 lens and one off-camera flash which I covered in a plastic bag to keep it dry as it snowed.

We only shot for 15 minutes. It was a little cold, and Damian was getting bored.

That being said, we caught some sweetness. The lack of color in the Winter landscape led me to convert them all to B&W.

Love my clients.

Love your clients. They will love you back.
