Valeria | Newborn Photography

I've shot children before, but newborns are a well... new to me. I got some pointers from some experienced professionals: Following a feeding, turn the air up to 80+ degrees, get some accessories and you're good to go. After a newborn is asleep following a feeding - you can do pretty much anything you want with them.

Good advice, but still, you've got to be prepared for anything. Luckily we had a warm summer afternoon to back us up with some natural light and Valeria - who had just logged her second week of life - was in a cooperative mood.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would - and I'm pretty sure Valeria's mom and dad did too.

Allison and Steve | Queensberry Wedding Album

Queenberry, based in New Zealand, is an old-school company that makes gorgeous hand-crafted works of art they call Wedding Albums. The company uses the best materials combined with experience and unparalleled dedication to their product that have earned them the title of being the top wedding album company in the world. To experience their albums is a joy in itself.

I had the pleasure of commissioning a trio of three albums for Allison and Steve. A beautiful 12x12 wrapped in the softest contemporary leather your fingers have ever rested on. The photographs are kept in place by clean-looking ivory matted pages. The couple wanted two identical digital copy albums as a surprise gift for their parents. The main album carries the names in a subtle, contemporary and very chic blind embossed Futura font. The 7" digital copies are a replica of the main album with the same soft leather, but with digital, photo printed pages.

If you'd like to experience these albums in person, set up an appointment and we'll start building a home to showcase your memories in style.

Habiba and Omar | Wedding Portraits

The US is a melting pot, and as such, it creates the perfect stage for people from from all nationalities to come together. Diversity is to be celebrated, and Omar and Habiba exemplify that.

I had the pleasure of shooting the couple in a couple of locations where we a mix of lighting and backgrounds.

My most sincere congratulations to Habiba and Omar on their union. Thanks for going up and down the elevator guys!
