It's not every day that I get to photograph my dear friends' new baby! I've known Rachael and Joel for several years, and now they live right around the corner in Jersey City. They have always been wonderful people, and now they are also incredibly cool parents.
I photographed Rachael and Joel's new baby, Isaac, at just five days old. He was a complete dream to photograph, and so sleepy and cooperative. I'm totally in love with his squishy lips and blonde hair! I also think the nerd baby glasses are my new favorite prop.
This session was also extra special because I was joined by my friend and talented fellow photographer Jenn Messina (www.jennifermessinaphotography.com). I love working with and learning from other photographers, and I can't wait to see the photos she took this weekend.
I adore photographing snuggly little newborns! Last weekend I got to meet sweet baby Charlotte at 9 days old, and it was a complete joy. Little Charlotte is such a happy baby, and I can see why! She has adoring parents and two older sisters who could not be happier with the new addition to their family. Congratulations to this wonderful growing family!
I first met little John's parents when their older son Danny was just a newborn. Then the three of us spent some time in Central Park when Danny was a baby. And now, I got to meet Danny's little brother John. What a cutie!
Baby Lucas is a whole month old, but he's still a tiny curly newborn at just over seven pounds. I had so much fur photographing him and talking with his wonderful parents. Mom and Dad are both special education teachers in Brooklyn, and they're incredibly well-traveled. They actually brought an adorable little pilot suit and a lot of old passports with stamps from all the countries they've visited. They even told me they're getting a passport for Lucas too, so he can start traveling the world with his parents! Mom and Dad, congratulations on your beautiful baby boy, and enjoy your sneak peek!
