Tamara’s Maternity Portraits

I first met JP and Tamara on a double date with my now-fiance Keith, 6 years later they are married and expecting and Keith and I are about to get married…   Keith and JP went to college together and are now both teachers at NYC high schools…  Tamara is a very talented graphic designer and fellow freelancer, so we always have lots to discuss whenever we see them.  Their wedding was beautiful and some images I shot at it are still in my portfolio of favorites.  When I found out that Tamara was pregnant I knew she was going to be so lovely, I insisted she visit me in the studio sometime in her 7-8th months… Here are a few images:

Alana and Matt’s Times Square Engagement Portraits

I met Alana sitting and waiting in line for the Filene’s Basement “Running of the Brides” sale earlier this year– we both bought our dresses there that day and had gotten to talking while waiting for the store to open. She was curious about my work and I hers– she’s a Rockette! Naturally after booking me for her wedding to Matt, who is an actor, we decided on a Times-Square/Radio City Music Hall based engagement session… Matt actually proposed to her onstage after one of her performances last year, can you beleive that? They had a number of meaningful spots and we hit some great landmarks along the way. Here are the results!115Alana_Matt_EngagementPortraits

Have you guys seen the CHAIRS set up in Times Square lately? They have shut down traffic in a bunch of spots and just put out lawn chairs to encourage people to sit out in the street. It’s certainly working and I’m all for it!

Nice! Makes me want to visit NYC!

‘Eyebrows even’… now there’s an editorial submission guideline you rarely see.

She’s got “kickin'” legs, just as you’d expect!

Fun with Flower Girls at Michael and Natalie’s Wedding

Sometimes I think my love of weddings really started when i was (6? 8 years old?) a flower-girl in an uncle’s wedding… It was so exciting and everything about it made me feel special. When I shoot weddings I often get a real kick out of shooting fun pictures of the kids enjoying themselves but rarely have I had a wedding with SO many little girls having so much fun! There were only 4 (!) flower girls at Michael and Natalie’s wedding last weekend but it felt like twice as many, they had so much energy! Anyway, I loved so many shots of them I figured I’d devote a blogpost to a set of just these images. A mini-photoessay of sorts, presented in black and white for continuity. Enjoy!01FunWithFlowerGirls_bySarahTewPhotographyEarly Arrival
