engaged couple at the Society for Ethical Culture building in Brooklyn

Kristen and Mike decided to keep their engagement session close to home, which, when you live near Prospect Park, is a no-brainer! Kristen loves the Society for Ethical Culture building on the park, so we headed over there for some shots, and we also got to include their adorable puppy, Toby:)

Monika and Joel had a gorgeous day for their engagement session at Grand Central! We had a lot of fun exploring. This little diner is across from the main entrance, and I love the entryway window (plus, it complemented Monika’s dress perfectly:))

Happy 1st Birthday to the adorable Sloane! I had a fabulous time at her birthday party. Check out the amazing decorations… and the ultimate dessert table:)

Her older brother (who is 100% energy!) may look familiar — I had the pleasure of doing a family portrait session with them a while back:)

I got a chance to peek at Sloane’s bedroom — it seriously looks like it is straight out of a catalog! So pretty:)

Happy Birthday again to Sloane! Thanks to her and her family for sharing it with me! xo
