MORGAN + SAM COUPLES PORTRAITS | New York City, Ny

SERENDIPITY IN THE CITY

I fully believe that every event in the whole universe is connected to every other event in the whole universe, and while our limited human intellect cannot grasp that massive totality, on occasion, we get to see a glimpse.

December 2017 I was on my way to my beloved New York City.  I stepped aboard the plane, wended my way back to my assigned seat but, upon seeing the man at the end of my row, suddenly got the urge to turn in one row early.  I plopped down next to the window, hoping I wouldn't be asked to leave and 2 minutes later a couple situated themselves next to me.

I'm usually wary of starting conversations on long flights but my willy-nilly seat decision left me no choice but to speak up lest I be moved and asked to sit next to the heebie-geebie man.  They were extremely friendly, let me know that they don't like window seats anyways and that our arrangement suited them.  Big sigh.

Emboldened by my luck I furthered the conversation and found out that the couple was headed to NYC for the first time to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary.  They had left their 4 babes at home for the very first time and my oozing romantic heart couldn't help but drip with love for them.

All of a sudden I heard myself offering to do a quick little commemorative photoshoot with them in Central Park in two days time.  WHO AM I?  Nooooot the kind of person that actually does this - keep in mind I want to shoot everyone I meet, and I offer free shoots silently in my head all.of.the.time but rarely do I actually verbalize it.

Well, they weren't weirded out, they actually showed up, and we actually did it.  Big, big sigh.  I don't get to create what I do without a subject so I'm always forever grateful to the ones that allow me to point my camera at them.

We could've taken different flights (or not taken a flight at all), I could've not gotten the heebie-geebie's and sat in my assigned seat, and on, and on, and on.  But life delivered these two on my path and I got to capture a slice of their journey. Xo

Is 2019 your year for couples portraits?

Let’s chat!

GONZALEZ FAMILY AT HOME | New York, NY

As a family photographer I thrive in chaos and crash and burn in stagnation.  My work literally exists because of the wildness of kids spirits and I can truly only take credit for being a mere witness.

As with all things in life - true greatness only comes through great challenge, and when these two rambunctious babes scurried under the sheets of mom and dads bed in their Upper East Side, New York apartment, my 'witnessing' sensors were firing on all engines and I snapped some of my favorite images to date.

This couple (who met in junior high) hummed with love and so warmly welcomed me into their New York lives.  Get a load of it for yourself. Xxo

CHRISTOFFERSON FAMILY AT HOME | Brooklyn, NY

In the heart of Park Slope in Brooklyn, New York you'll find a wizard of a small boy, wielding a sword and donning a cape by day, and healing (mom and dads) ailments with crystals by night.  Just kidding, we never made it to night, but I DID get to witness this shaman baby in action, and for that alone, I am grateful.

Grey is a force to be reckoned with and it's easy to see where he gets his charm.  So many activities, so little time, and so, much, love in this quaint Brooklyn abode. Xxo
