Welcome to my blog! It’s been a long time coming and I’m excited it’s finally ready!
So, a little bit about me. My name is Cristina Portale Coco, I’m a mom great kid I’ll refer to on this blog as J. I am also a portrait photographer based in Westchester County who happens to be a shoe fanatic, a Starbucks addict, and a bit of a gadget girl. That’s the basic stuff.
As for the rest of it – this blog will help give you a little insight into who I am and you’ll quickly see that I’m not the stuffy photographer type. I’m really part tom-boy, part fashionista, and part clumsy geek. I think the clumsy geek and tom-boy part are why I’m able to connect with kids through my camera. I’m not afraid to get down to their level and be silly with them. At one point in my life I thought this was a flaw, (most likely in a showroom in Milan where everyone was speaking Italian and I felt WAAAAAY un-cool) but now I realize it is an important part of what led me to do photography. It’s who I am and it’s what makes me good at what I’m doing now.
So, enough of the serious talk. For those who haven’t seen my old blog (www.cristinacoco.blogspot.com) – here’s an intro to little J. I’m sure you’ll be seeing him a lot! I also will be giving clients sneak peaks of their sessions before their viewing appointment (I know how hard it is to wait for that!) and also give show you some of my favorite “must have” things now and then. I have a lot!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Please subscribe, leave me a note, say hello… I’d love to know you were here!
