The Baby Project was inspired by my own new journey into motherhood. What I’ve learned, especially now that Liam is nearing his first birthday, is that these moments when they are small are so fleeting. I already miss those middle-of-the-night cuddles and  his newborn scent. I really wanted this project to give mommas some time to just snuggle their babies and savor some of those precious moments.

Zak and Kara’s beautiful Legacy Farms wedding was perfection. I worked with Jenny Lindsey on this wedding and I’m so excited to share these images with you. I’ve been shooting weddings for several years now and every once in a while, I’ll come across one where the bride and groom share a rare kind of love, evident by this spirit of unfiltered joy in the air and the sheer amount of happy tears in each room.

When Zak was a teenager, he wrote a letter to God about his future wife and the person he wanter her to be. He stored that letter in a sealed glass bottle, vowing to leave it, untouched, until his wedding day. Right before their first look, Zak sent a gift to his bride-to-be along with this note in a bottle. As Kara read it aloud, there was no question to anyone in that room that Zak’s letter was describing her exactly. It’s indescribable how it felt to be in that room.

Here’s just a little glimpse of the magic from Zak and Kara’s wedding day!

Andrew and Marilyn’s New York City wedding was so beautiful! The day started out with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony with Andrew’s family, followed by a wedding and reception at the gorgeous Queens County Farm Museum in Queens, New York. I had no idea that this peaceful little space even existed in the five boroughs. Such a stunning venue and wedding. Congrats, Andrew and Marilyn!

I broke my Mamiya 645 at a wedding last spring. Nothing major, but I needed to replace a small piece of it. I never got around to it during my pregnancy, so I finally ordered the part a couple of months ago. When it came in, I wanted to try it out just to make sure everything was still in working condition. What better test subject than the cuteness in my own house? His chubby cheeks look great on film!
