The photos I love the most from my chlldhood are the ones where I'm making a face that looks just like me. Or maybe it's a moment of unposed tenderness: my mom reading a bedtime story to three of us, rosy cheeked and in PJs.
“The job of the photographer, in my view, is not to catalogue indisputable fact but to try to be coherent about intuition and hope.” – Robert Adams
Let's take a field trip: Jamaica Bay, Riis beach, the botanic garden, a quiet path in the park. Or we can start in your home, read a book in a window-lit armchair and take a walk to your neighborhood playground.
Sessions start at $700 for a local hour, after which you will receive an edited selection of high quality, full resolution files on a secure website from which you can share, download or order prints. Or, we can talk about a photo book. (We are all surrounded by constant streams of images, but it is so special to have something we can page through and pass to friends and family.)
SPECIAL “MOMMY AND ME” SESSION $350 It’s alliterative shorthand. All caregivers welcome. This is different from a family session in that it’ll be a weekday morning or afternoon with one parent and baby or toddler in a casual documentary style. As I work out how this type of session can best flow, I’m offering a short-term special: $350 for an hour-long session. This is a great chance to document the life of these days: books in your special spot, waking from a nap, soft window light on tiny fingers and toes.
“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.” Henri Cartier Bresson
