A few weeks ago I had the opportunity and pleasure of working with the Sybil and her family. She was referred to me by a previous client when she saw a framed wall art collection and decided to contact me right away. The day of her portrait session turned out to be such a beautiful day in regards to the weather. The day started of myself going to her home to apply her make up and we then met at the Croton Dam on top of the dam.I absolutely loved working with this family, their boys were such fun to work with such easy going personalities and a sense of humor. Enjoy the photos below.
Out for a walk one day and decided to visit my favorite dessert shop, The Dessertist. While visiting Samantha, the owner of The Dessertist, I noticed her accent blue wall. I told Samantha I had to shoot it along with her desserts. Over the next few days we came up with the concept and rounded up her daughter Charlie and her friends.
With a little Taylor Swift playing in the background, the girls had so much fun playing dress up and getting their make up done. What I loved most about this session was the girls connection. They have been friends since they were babies, and during this shoot I wanted to capture their connection, allowing them to be kids and girlfriends. With a fun colorful wardrobe to choose from, sprinkled lips, cake pops and more, they had so much fun.
If you haven't visited The Dessertist located in Croton, NY. I suggest you do so now! These are not your typical desserts. When you visit be sure to ask for a Chaco (Chocolate-Taco), it's amazing. I am happy to also announce that The Dessertist will now be providing my cakes for future smash cakes as well!
Here are a few of my favorite images, from our shoot!
