This is my beautiful god daughter – I am so lucky to have her in my life and she is so much fun to play with!  We went on our annual Christmas card shoot, this time at the church where she goes to nursery school.  I know, might seem a little weird doing a session at a church – but they have the most beautiful little courtyard with such amazing light.  I noticed it when we went to the Harvest Festival there and as I’ve been picking up a lot of clients from Bronxville, I thought it would be a great easy spot to meet clients.

She is a complex little girl, which I love about her.  She takes a moment to figure you out…  (not with me anymore, but she does look sort of reflective here!)  Not my normal black and whites.  My friends and family have to put up with me testing new things.  Let me know what you think of it, ok?


and then the craziness takes over…


I told you this was a pretty little courtyard!  A lot of clients ask me what they should dress their kids in.  This is a great example!  Texture on the sweater, beautiful color, layers to take on and off.   Oh, and really cool boots don’t hurt either!  I love this shot!!

    These are AMAZING!!!! I concur with Denise, you have managed to capture Fiona’s sparkling personality in this session. I love the first soft picture where her gentle beauty is undeniable. The bold colors of the picture under the stone passage depict her funky side!!!
