This family came all the way from Saudi Arabia to visit NYC. I was lucky enough to photograph them during their stay. Mom’s yellow skirt made the shoot. There is nothing better than a bright pop of yellow.

This family has such a special place in my heart. Mom was my little sister in college. To photograph her and her beautiful family was such an honor.

a special afternoon

05.17.2014

Last October a dear friend’s daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. Her name is Scarlett and she is just 6  years old. I have been photographing her since she was born, so she and her family have a very special place in my heart. Since last fall, Scarlett and her family have been enduring a long road of treatment, which will lead Scarlett to the healthy childhood she deserves.

I would like to invite you all to a special afternoon of fun in Scarlett’s honor. She is featured in a book, The Vintage Contessa and Princess, which is being launched today in NYC at Kirna Zabete.  There will be a reading by the author, as well as a photo booth and face painting for the children. Come and support Scarlett and pediatric cancer, and stay tuned for where you can purchase the book.

spring mini shoots, may 3rd in nyc!

03.20.2014

scharff-043

I’ve been hibernating to get through this brutal New York winter. You, too? Thankfully, spring arrives today and we’ll welcome all that it brings: fragrant flowers, the return of bright green grass and warmer, longer days. So, let’s get outside and celebrate the thaw with a mini-shoot on May 3rd! We’ll capture the color and energy of the season–and enough family photos to inspire your Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts.

Join me for some fresh air and sunshine against one of Manhattan’s most beautiful backdrops: Madison Square or Central Park. No jacket (or scarf or mittens!) required.

Date: Saturday, May 3rd with a rain date of Saturday, May 10th

9am – 12pm: Central Park, exact location TBD

1pm – 4pm: Madison Square Park, on 23rd and Madison Avenue

Cost: $375

A mini-shoot includes a half-hour photo shoot, approximately 25 images presented in an online gallery, and one 8×10 enlargement. This time I’m also including one digital file, valued at $175! A CD of all the images may be purchased for $450. Gift certificates are available.

westport family photographer

03.05.2014

This family used to live in NYC and has since moved to London. Mom (blue dress) and I met up for a run and coffee when I was there visiting. Anyone who offers a running tour through a city I’ve never been to, get’s an A+ in my book. They were home visiting family last summer and we met up at their house in Westport for a photo shoot. Our shoot came to an end over a glass of wine, where they told me they plan to move back soon. Fingers crossed.

This beautiful family was visiting from California right before Christmas. We were luck enough to squeeze in a shoot for their holiday card. They sure did pile out of the taxi camera ready. Perfect little models…

This little lady had great attitude. Such spunk, and a natural in front of the camera. We had fun doing my favorite loop in the West Village.
