Glamour Portrait Session in my NYC sun filled Daylight Studio. The dress she wore was a vintage 1950s brocade. Beautiful.
I love this dreamy portrait session I had last week with a most beautiful woman, of gentle and giving heart and strong will to follow her dreams.
A beautiful portrait of Zoe West, Actress and Model, that I captured at a wonderful glamor session last week at Splashlight Studios here in NYC.
“I don’t like my picture taken,” she said.
“Then how about not smiling?”
This she did with comfort. Oh, you are so beautiful.
Mother and Child… one can never imagine what true, deep, selfless love is until our first born enters our world.
Below is a tiny triptych. One of these days I’ll create a web site which can show this in column sizes I like. (hey I’m hiring if you know a good web designer ha ha) . As you can see I’ve been busy photographing wonderful families and gorgeous women.
I couldn’t resist sharing how beautifully this new dad communicated with his daughter.
Then, there’s little baby hands and mother’s holding softly.
When a child is born we first begin to learn what love is.
A NYC Family: Mother, Father, and Tiny 10 Day Old Newborn
The new parents were full of love for their first portrait session with their newborn daughter. Mom was relaxed and gentle. Dad just knew exactly how to hold his new daughter and was so very comfortable, as I think you can see from a few photographs. What a blessing to photograph this new family.
A woman’s beauty is measured not by the number or depth of her wrinkles, nor by the color of her hair. Beauty is a reflection of how a one sees the world around them, what one does for others, and how one chooses to live. Compassion, curiosity, joy, love, generosity; these qualities create eternal beauty. I look into a person’s eyes. I watch their hands. I see some of their genuine self. And I see their beauty.
Valentines Day is coming up. I must admit I don’t make a big fuss over it. Actually, I’m very kind to my husband. I go out, buy myself some chocolate, a new color nail polish or something nice from L’Occitane. Then come home and tell him “darling thank you for my valentine’s present.” Easy and we’re happy all around. But having my portrait done for a V-day gift? That I would like.
And, I do love the color red, and also playing dress up. Not the, “I have to go shopping for something to wear” kind of dress up. But the, “oh let’s make something dreamy or gorgeous or playful, but definitely something new!” kind of dress up.
So - with Valentines Day coming, and me a portrait photographer, I had to take some portraits after buying a load of red, black and cream tulle. That, a little creativity, a lot of fabric draping and collaboration with a fellow photographer Kamila Harris, and a great make up artist, Lola Schmidt —- and VOILA. GLAMOR.
Here are a few of the resulting images. You are invited to book a session for this coming Valentines Day (hurry up though) or for another time when you too want to feel special.
