Trying to plan a session around tree blossoms can be quite the challenge. You never know exactly when they will bloom and how long they will stay open for. Pair that with unpredictable NY weather, you may only have a handful of days you can schedule your session on. With Christine Covino and her family, we did it! It may have been cold, windy and maybe even rainy for a hot second, but we got them done! And, fortunately, they had a steamy greenhouse on her family farm’s property to warm up in. Hope you all love browsing through these images as much as I do!
Have you ever heard of a photographer’s bucket list? Well, this session checked off a few from my list. I have always dreamt of photographing an expectant mother draped in a Girl and a Serious Dream lace robe. I guess you could have said I was just a girl with some serious dreams :) I have always dreamt of photographing a growing family on the steps of the NY Public Library. Thank you Fran and Sam for fulfilling my photography dreams and thank you NYC weather for actually cooperating for it. I loved Sam’s little compliments during the morning session and how they adoringly looked at each other on the steps of the library with a thousand other people around. I can’t wait to photograph you and your plus one for your newborn photography session.

You may not know this about me, but I love 35mm film. You have probably heard this from me many times before, but a lot of my newborn sessions are photographed on cloudy, rainy days. Because of this, I often need to shoot wide open and sometimes my Pentax isn’t wide enough at 2.8 to shoot at a comfortable shutter speed. So, my Nikon F6 does that for me and still allows me to shoot film. I also use my 35mm when I photograph toddlers and really need some speed to freeze the motion. This beautiful NY newborn session is the perfect example of what 35mm film can do. It was dark, it was rainy, but the cuteness was worth it. And say hello to the littlest, sweetest lips you have ever seen. I loved working with this family to document their first official family-of-three photos in the comfort of their NY home.
