Last Sunday I spent the morning with a beautiful little girl, Eva Rose and her mother. Starting in a sunflower field in a small long island farming town, to the beaches in Southold, I worked on capturing the gorgeous baby girl and her mother. The love between these two was so obvious as I watched them together. I hope to be able to take some more photographs of Eva once she is up on her feet and walking soon!
Had a fabulous time shooting Marissa Bigelli a few weeks ago. Also known as "Lady Divorce," Marissa is a super smart and gorgeous young woman that I had a lovely time enjoying a cocktail with and photographing along the bay in Orient Point.
A few weeks ago I ventured out to Jamaica, Queens to photograph the christening of an adorable little baby, Tom Harris. I arrived at St. Demetrios, a beautiful Greek Orthodox Church, where I was given a brief synopsis of the planned order of events. We would begin in the back of the church where Tom was held by his godmother for a service of prayers. Following this, he would be brought to the front of the church for more prayers before getting undressed and swaddled in a white cloth for the actual baptism. After the priest anointed him with oil, he would be immersed three times into a large basin of water to cleanse him of sin. The entire experience was extremely interesting since I have never been part of this type of baptism. Tom was such a good sport. I know I wouldn't have handled the dunking well if I was being submerged in cold water! One shot I took before he was submerged into the water made me really believe he knew what was coming; his face just looked like he was trying to say "wait, they are going to do what to me?” See the photos below for some highlights of the day!
