A Baptism in Bronxville

Nico's Baptism

It’s always exciting to do a shoot I’ve never done before – in this case it was a baptism, something I’ve never even attended. This was for baby Nico, the four-month-old son of Anne and Frank, a lovely couple who live in Bronxville, NY, just north of NYC.

The baptism was held in the beautiful St. Joseph’s church in downtown Bronxville, and afterward Anne and Frank hosted a reception at an Italian restaurant in nearby Scarsdale.

I really enjoyed capturing this event.  The priest also baptized several other babies at the same time, and it was heartwarming to see all the other babies and families together. It was an overcast day but it couldn’t dampen everyone’s happy spirit.

Congratulations Anne and Frank! Nico is blessed to have such wonderful parents and family.

Cara and Michael: A Coney Island Engagement Shoot

I recently got to do one of the most fun shoots in a long time – photographing my best friend’s engagement photos in Coney Island, Brooklyn! Cara and I have been best friends since Kindergarten, and we both ended up moving to New York City from our native Texas, even sharing an apartment as roommates for two years, so this was a very exciting event to be a part of. Coney Island has a special place in this couple’s heart, so they asked me to capture some fun and natural photos of them hanging out in one of their favorite spots. I tagged along as they spent a couple hours strolling the boardwalk, riding the Wonder Wheel,  walking on the beach, and of course sharing a Nathan’s hot dog.

Congrats you guys : )

Miguel and Family: A photoshoot in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn

Last month, I captured some family photos for Kara and Miguel, a lovely couple whose wedding I photographed back in 2012. They are now the proud parents of 6-month-old twins, Eva and Max, and we went down to a waterfront park in Bay Ridge on a nice day and took family photos with Miguel’s mother and sister who were visiting from Spain.

Shakespeare in the Park: Romeo and Juliet in NYC

Back in May, I photographed the newly-formed theater collective Shakespeare Downtown during an outdoor performance of their first play, the classic Romeo & Juliet, at Castle Clinton, in Lower Manhattan.

I’ve never photographed an outdoor play before, and it came with different challenges than the average play indoors with professional lighting, but it was a great experience and a wonderful play. Shakespeare Downtown’s performances are free and open to the public, check out their website here to see when their next production will take place!
