Jennifer+Andy {expecting!}

I met Jennifer at Helen's baby shower and we found out that our husbands are also acquaintances! Goodness what a small world we live in. So I was thrilled when Jennifer and Andy asked me to take their maternity photos and was even more excited to go back to Alley Pond Park {my fave place to take portraits}. Jennifer and Andy are also expecting a November baby--a baby boy!

Ha Family Photoshoot

I had the opportunity to photograph three generations together! David and Emily's family flew in from Texas to join Eugene and Susan's family and their parents for a memorable photoshoot at Alley Pond Park. Aren't the kiddies just adorable? So much energy and spunk!

Kim Family Photoshoot

I first met Jean through Helen and Paul and was more than happy to take updated family photos for her. This year is extra special as it marks 30 years of marriage for her parents {whoo!}. I was grateful for everyone's enthusiasm and for allowing me to see a sliver of how goofy and adorable the whole family is together!

Ana+Sopeark {engaged}

My dear friends Ana and Sopeark are finally getting hitched after--ten--yes you heard me, I said TEN, years of dating. I would say that patience is a quality that they must share because they braved a super humid summer morning to take photos at Queens Botanical Garden. The couple kept their cool while we navigated through hoards of tai-chi practitioners, sword dancers (???), and swarms of mosquitos. Check out all the love and warmth in the photos below!

Hello Elliot! {newborn}

My nephew was supposed to be born today {Labor Day! Haha, note the pun!} but he decided to make his very quick, very grand entrance a few days early. I missed his birth but arrived on the scene just a few hours later and was able to grab a few shots of him on his first day home. Congratulations to my sister and brother-in-law and his big sister Olivia! More to come later this month but I just can't get enough of his sweet face!
