Couples // Elizabeth&Eli // Central Park, NYC

This is my wonderful older sister Elizabeth and her hilarious boyfriend Eli! In the world of photography, people tend to want to portray their “best side” and pose nicely for the camera, and of course there is nothing wrong with that. These two however, just have an all-out fun time together, as you will see! When you first meet Elizabeth, she comes tends to come off as tough. But believe me, she is a softie and a half! She is incredibly thoughtful and tender and loving and funny. Eli is just as silly as can be, but that hides the pensive intellect that he really is. There are some genuinely sweet and tender moments captured, but for the most part, the reality of their relationship is that they are silly together! I love them.

Elizabeth - I was worried, at first, because I didnt think we could pull off the ‘gooey eyes/i-love-you-stare/seriously in love’ look. But Boots captured all of my favorite parts of our relationship. We’re goofy and playful and don’t show a lot of PDA. She caught lightning in a bottle, as far as I’m concerned. Eli doesn’t show lots of serious emotions but she coxed it out of him. Thank you for this wonderful gift. I dont know if I can thank you enough. It really is the better than I could have hoped for.

Friends // Macy & Jill // Central Park

Oh these two. I love them. Macy (brunette) and Jill (blonde) are such lovely, encouraging ladies. I was fortunate enough to meet them through my husband Stephen, as they were in the graduate program with him at Columbia University. Right toward the end of the school year, they approached me asking if I could take their graduation images and then some just for fun’s sake. I jumped at the chance! It was fun and they are charming.

A Girl and Her Dog // Caroline // Brooklyn

I was recently asked to take professional head shots for my friend Caroline. But we decided to turn it into something a bit more. It became an adventure as we explored Caroline’s Bushwick neighborhood, played at a dog park with her sweet puppy Helen Keller (stand by for the explanation of her name) and just enjoyed each other’s company. But let’s talk about HK for a moment and what a sweetheart she is! She was a tiny puppy when she was tossed out of a moving car (I know, it’s unbelievable that anyone could be so cruel). She ended up at an animal shelter and was picked up by Caroline. She suffered some head injuries: she couldn’t see or hear very well and had a difficult time with motor functions. Need I say more? HK is pretty much a normal dog these days, just a little shy. Needless to say, we had a ton of fun!

 

Portrait // Tahni // West Village, NYC

Too soon for another post? I don’t think so. My friend Tahni is a beautiful person, inside and out. She is creative and talented, and to be perfectly honest she reminds me of the gypsy Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame! She has this wonderful free spirit that radiates when you meet her. We worked in her apartment and it was such a charming space. Enjoy!

Engagement // Heather&Chad // Williamsburg, Brooklyn

It has been a bit since I’ve posted, but I have been busy catching up with everything on my plate. And what a better couple to jump back in with than Heather and Chad! What a cool couple! I felt like such a nerd around them, but Heather and Chad were just really effortlessly cool. It could have been the ample amount of tattoos that they were each sporting, or it could have been that they were really easy to be around and really easy to photograph and very much in love. (Forgive the overabundance of images, there were just so many that I wanted to share.)

Lindsy - I absolutely love these. Wish you didn’t live so far away–you have exactly the eye I was looking for in a wedding photographer!
