maternity session in the hamptons – shelter island


One of my first Hamptons sessions this summer was in Shelter Island with this adorable couple, Vanessa and Duncan. Mom-to-be is the brains behind Sensible Sitters, my go-to resource for babysitters when out east. We met in a NYC Starbucks shortly after Conner was born, right as we were both starting our businesses. Since then, Vanessa has built a comprehensive childcare resource that provides families with wonderful, reliable and energetic babysitters across the country. Make sure to check our her website.  I’m in awe of her success!

You would never have known this shoot was on a very hot and humid day. This beautiful mother and daughter duo were not phased. I was lucky enough to be there to capture a small window of their relationship.

Spring in NYC is the best. The only thing that makes it even more enjoyable is photographing a family in their Tribeca neighborhood. A new family who I hope to see again!

A few details from a recent 40th birthday I photographed at the new Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to plan a party out east, or for a luxurious place to stay. The staff, food and venue were all wonderful.
