Melissa's Surprise ShowerProject Nursery Baby Shower

Baby Showers are always such a blast to capture, and who doesn’t love a surprise baby shower! Melissa’s team at Project Nursery and co-founder partner Pam got together and decided to throw a fabulous surprise shower for Melissa! With the help of Natasha Lawler from Minted, Ara from Rock Paper Scissors and Christina Lozito’s gorgeous floral designs, the event was absolutely beautiful and perfect for the mom-to-be! Guests enjoyed lots of delicious food and iced tea while over looking Manhattan at the top of the Soho Mondrian! Magnetic boards were passed around for everyone to design a “dream nursery” for Melissa, what a fun shower game! Even Rosie Pope, a friend of Project Nursery and mother herself shared some fabulous motherhood tips, and before each guest left the shower they were given a fabulous diaper bag from Skip Hop filled with goods from Amazon and Minted. Here are some of my favorites from the baby shower, and be sure to check out the feature on Project Nursery

Adam and LesleyA Bowery Hotel WeddingNew York, New York

Adam and Lesley have two of the most loving hearts. They are both from the Midwest and luckily they were both volunteering for the same organization they adore in New York City when they met. It wasn’t long after their first initial meeting that they both knew there was something special between them. Whenever their parents would come to visit them in the city, their families would stay at The Bowery Hotel and in fact their parents met for the first time there. So when Adam proposed to Lesley, The Bowery Hotel seemed like the perfect fit their wedding day! Lesley stunned Adam in a gorgeous blush Vera Wang gown, and they did such a fantastic job at merging their classical and modern city styles into one fabulous celebration. You might remember their sweet engagement session, and I love how we went to Billy’s Bakery for their session and again on the wedding day, their favorite dessert place in the city! This might be one of my favorite weddings ever. Be sure to check out the feature on Style Me Pretty as well.

Daniel and ColleenManhattan Newborn Session

There is something so beautiful about watching your friends become parents, it’s such an amazing experience. I have known Daniel since High School and somehow we both ended up in the same city. A few years ago he met his stunning wife Colleen whom I adore and it feels like just yesterday they announced “a baby makes three.” I was so thrilled to hear the news they were expecting and they were going to be parents. Once Charlotte (Charley) arrived they asked me to capture Charley’s first portrait session and I was beyond honored. Seeing these two with their precious little lady was so fun and I loved photographing her first session. Isn’t she precious! I know Daniel and Colleen are such amazing parents and I can’t wait to watch Charley grow up. Here are some of my favorites from their morning session.

Chris and KatieTennessee Farm Engagement Session

I love traveling and I love engagement sessions so what’s more fun than an afternoon on a beautiful Tennessee farm with Katie and Chris! They are getting married next May and I can’t wait to capture their beautiful southern affair. We decided to do their engagement session at the same location as their wedding and it was so perfect. Asbury Farm has acres of trees and haybells, a beautiful southern farmhouse and an old tire swing. These two are so adorable and I love that they wanted to take photos in their jeans and t-shirts towards the end of their session. They said, “this is us and we want that part of our relationship captured.” How cute is that! Here are some of my favorites from the afternoon with Katie and Chris.
