Kacey and Brendan’s Autumn in Central Park | NYC Engagement Photographer

Autumn in New York..most agree its the best time to be here.  Apple cider and pumpkins.  Not too hot, not too cold.  Colorful foliage galore, and a general fresh sense of the old is passed and the new is coming.  This is especially true for Kacey who is an English teacher.   But what is more for Kacey and Brendan, who works in Finance,  they are about to embark on their new adventure as a married couple in July, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them.   I barely have to tell you how genuine their love for one another is because these images say it all… I hope you enjoy this little walk in Central Park with them and that you are inspired by the love that they share.

The Princess Kate resemblance is really strong in these next three images:

 

It was really hard to choose whether to show these in color or black and white….they were so gorgeous in both..

This image below was a close second for my favorite…So passionate and romantic and yet completely free and natural.  Scroll below to see “the winner.”

It was super hard to choose, but I think these one below is my favorites of the day…their passionate love is just so tangible.  I got a little misty eyed during this part of the shoot at how FREAKIN gorgeous and in love these two are.  Luckily this was the last frame!

Thanks for viewing. More to come soon!  Please “like” and comment below! Also check out their slideshow.

 

The Reed Family | NY Family Portrait Photographer

Check out this adorable Upper West Side fall family portrait session…Look first, talk later!

 

Oh, what to say about this family that I love.  This dear  husband and wife who pastor the New York Dream Center together, whose home is open practically 24-7 for anyone who might be in need, whose lives they have wholeheartedly given to serving a city and a God that they love; they have personally impacted my life a lot.  This beautiful family is such an inspiration and it was my honor to do their family photos and capture the love that they have for each other.

Six year old Emma LOVED my camera which was so fun for me, and I eventually actually had to ask her to stop changing her pose for me every click.  She was moving around so fast at first I couldn’t capture anything at all!  (It was like she’d watched America’s next top model or something…no it must have been all the High School Musical I always hear her talking about…)

Tyler was the stark opposite.  It was hard to get the three-year-old tike to sit still or to look at the camera and smile.  Essentially I had to chase him around the playground or we had to trick him for some of those smiling shots and yet somehow I feel that every shot whether he was smiling or serious managed to capture his cute, curious and playful personality.  I love that Brad and Stella Reed were so good at bringing out the smiles and personalities of their kids.

The Reeds were going for a fall family portrait look in their upper west side neighborhood and Riverside park, but unfortunately it was extremely hot the day we did this shoot.  After a series of cold days, I too had over dressed that day.  By the end of the shoot we were all hot, sweaty and exhausted.  After the shoot, I actually got a migraine from being dehydrated and overheated and had to cancel my plans for the evening, (yikes!) So I was sooo thrilled to find later when I had recovered that we had captured so many precious moments despite the antsy kids and my overheated brain.  There were so many good ones it was literally PAINFUL to whittle it down to just these.  The warm evening light cast the perfect orange glow for fall, and as beautiful as they were in color, I couldn’t believe how cool they were in black and white as well.
