Family Photos in Greenwhich Village, New York

Photographing kids takes patience—lots of it and love. At the age of 2, they are impatient. They just want to explore the world around them, to run, to touch, to experience, to feel, to be free. They don’t allow boredom. And they grow up so fast—each moment of their childhood is priceless.

Being part of these moments is priceless. That’s the most valuable gift of being a photographer. Usually my sessions with family and kids take a bit longer—around 2 hours. But I let them feel free—to be themselves. I don’t pose, I don’t aim for the perfect background, the perfect posture, the perfect smile. I aim for the moment; for capturing the essence of each one of them. The singularity of each photo, each hug, each smile, each spontaneous moment—that’s priceless.

Specially in these days, we are continuously seeking perfection—the best make up, the straight hair, the best pose to slim the face, hips, tricks to hide singularities—we are constantly loosing the chance to be ourselves. For me, the role of photography is not capturing perfection, but the moment that is perfect on their heart.

Maternity Photos in Central Park

I believe every person in New York was supper excited for the Spring, but the beginning of May was rainy, cloudy and cold—completely unpredictable weather! We had to reschedule the photoshoot twice and still, I was walking to the subway station when the drizzles started! But since everything about New York is a surprise, we had a wonderful time!

No matter which season, Central Park is alway stunning and you can discover different spots each time you go! I love taking maternity photos here—it’s always like a delight walk around the park!

Gorgeous Family Photos for Mother's Day

Every single photoshoot I worked on, it’s always special. Every couple, family, baby, kid that I connected with leave a huge mark in my heart—I just love what I do so much! Every photo I clicked has a piece of my heart in it and all those amazing clients are just special people that the Universe gave me!

This session was more than special! I saw once Chloe welcoming to Gabi’s arms—this little human being, so anxious to meet her parents that she came a bit premature. Instead of taking Gabi’s maternity photos, I had to rush to the hospital and adventure on this inexplicable word of photographing births. Never saw a childbirth before in my life! I’ve explained Gabi that I didn’t have any experience with birth photography, but my heart was all on it! I was with Gabi and Sean from 10am till 11pm on that Sunday. It’s only so much words able to describe what I felt, what I experienced. It was beyond photography… it was beyond taking pictures… I was holding Gabi’s hand experiencing that miracle, that little human being coming after almost exhausting 20 hours in labor. She was just gorgeous! At that point I understood how privileged I was, how gifted. I’ll carry that day in my heart, forever!

Today, Chloe is 4 months old. The most beautiful little pumpkin I ever seen! I’m just grateful… I’ve no more words to say than that. Thank you, Universe! Just thank you!

Family Photoshoot in New York

For those who are wondering where to do a family photoshoot that is not as crowded as Central Park, the Riverside South Park is a beautiful spot in New York City!

There are some improvements coming soon, which will make the park even more charming. With gorgeous trees and a few areas to rest, it’s perfect for a walk or just to chill and watch the sunset. It’s a pretty good alternative to run away from tourists and the crowd in Central Park, especially now the sun if finally, here!

I love photographing families, babies and catch this special moment—they just grow up too fast!!! After a raining week and several days of cloudy afternoons, we’re pretty lucky to get this “summery” shots! What a beautiful Wednesday!
