Haute Boudoir : Ms C

Ms C happens to work in the photo department of one of the worlds biggest fashion design houses. I was honored and nervous that she wanted ME to photograph her boudoir photos as a one year anniversary gift to her amazing husband (who we spent the next day with trolling around Central Park, and it was HARD not to let the secret slip!). Just a few of my favorites from this gorgeous girl's session in New York City!

Mother's Day

I rarely see posts devoted to the two other most important people at a wedding; The Mothers. There seems to be a vacum of fashionable, classic and elegant outfits for Moms to wear to weddings. No one says you have to wear a dress, especially if you aren't a dress kinda gal. And dressing your age doesn't mean donning an outfit that would've made Bea Arther cringe. Mother's deserve to look and feel gorgeous, no matter what your age, no matter what your size, no matter what your personal style, there is fabulous way to dress that stays true to you.

Jubilee Weddings : Jenell & Andrew 9.18.2010

Let me introduce Jenell and Andrew. Their wedding was on a gorgeous late September Saturday and featured dinosaurs, a 57 chevy & matching shoes, a bouquet holding bear and a nosy jaguar, along with some of the sweetest, most genuine people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. One of the best perks of photographing weddings is getting to know extraordinary people like Jenell and Andrew. They are so sweet, so funny and so considerate of one another, you can't help but blush being near them. Jenell and Andrew, you rock.
