destination lifestyle family photographer06.09.2014

a long time ago i worked in a restaurant + toby was the sous chef…  then i met his gal, kelli + i liked her a whole lot.  then i photographed their wedding when they got married in a tree house (who’s photo incidentally keeps popping up over on buzzfeed).  fast forward five years + add to their mix just about the cutest three year old ever…. (i’m admittedly partial to 3 yr. old little girls…) on a recent trip back to seattle i did some family photos for them.  + eleanor + my aven hit it off like bff’s in an instant…  + i love that i still get to photograph them all these years later…  (oh…. here’s that treehouse wedding photo of theirs too!)

nautical summer camp montauk wedding – brooklyn wedding photographer06.02.2014

when i was editing these photos + pulling them together for a post, all that kept occurring to me was : joy.  there was so much joy in this day.  i also really loved how involved conor’s kids were in the wedding…  his son walked cristin down the alter + all four of them walked back up it when the ceremony was over.  i also can’t recommend their band enough….  it was the perfect musical backdrop for a summery outdoor laid back wedding…

nyc kids photographer – three years ago today…05.19.2014

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 presetsometimes i don’t feel like my chest can contain my heart with how explosively it adores her.  she doesn’t know it but she’s really made me a better person.  she’s taught me a lot about getting up early, being more efficient with less time, being selfless when i really don’t want to be… but most importantly she gives joy to the smallest things in life.  who knew that a trampoline, or baking cookies, or catching geckos could be so . much . fun?  she’s my dear heart, my wonder whim, my curious + capricious little star.  + honestly she’s one of my favorite people on earth.
