I'm an American expat, writer. photographer. and old-fashioned romantic in love with celebrating the simple joys of daily life. I appreciate timelessness, the natural world, and a slow life lived with simplicity and intention. When I'm not photographing families or  slowly traveling the world and writing about it in a little notebook, I'm happily grounding myself in nature and cozying up with my sweet husband.

There is nothing quite as special as NYC in the Fall, am I right? Similar to New England, the Autumn leaves transition from vibrant green to bright orange and red near the end of October and into November. As a destination family photographer, I love traveling back to NYC every Fall for my past and future clients. 

This sweet sister pair was one of the most darling photo sessions I’ve had in Central Park! I’ve photographed the eldest daughter since she was 10 months old! It’s so special for me to watch these kids grow up. One of the greatest joys in my photography business is forming long-lasting relationships with my clients over the many years, and I love returning to them to document their growing family.

For this 30 minute session, their mom and dad wanted some quick, updated solo portraits of the two daughters. Near the end of their Simplicity “mini” session, she changed them into some matching dresses and we played a few rounds of Ring Around the Rosie before the sun set behind the skyscrapers on the west side.
