Marissa & Jason- Summer Session, Part 2

Cooling off in the lake on a hot summer day... how much more romantic could this session get?!

Surrounded by nature, Marissa and Jason let loose and took a little dip in the lake.
It was so fitting because it is SO them!

Here is part 2 of their summer session.

Marissa & Jason- Summer Session, Part 1

Quite a difference in the scenery from the last time I photographed Marissa and Jason.
Everything was covered in a thick blanket of snow and they were engaged for just a few weeks. 

We met again to celebrate their beautiful love with a summer session
only a few days before they become Mr. & Mrs.

Spending an afternoon in the countryside, they couldn't possibly look any more in love!

I was totally smitten.

At The Lake

When celebrating Andreas' Birthday, we got to spend some time at the beautiful Lake Valhalla. 
Children seemed to have the time of their life running around and playing on the beach. 

Because who does not enjoy sand under their feet and a cool breeze
 on a hot summer day?

Happy Father's Day!

When you meet The One and fall in love, 
you might wonder what kind of a father he will be to your children. 

I should have known that Steve would be a super fun dad the day he played with toys of the boy I babysat when we started seeing each other.
It was, for sure, an indicator, haha!

Fast forward 14 years or so and he is the best and most fun dad a child could have.

Happy Father's Day to this amazing man I am so lucky to share my life with.
 I love you more and more each day.
And our children adore you!
Thank you for being You!

And  a very Happy Father's Day to my beloved Dad! Kocham Cię, Tato!

Let's Build Something!

Boys wouldn't be boys if they didn't like their trucks and playing with dirt. 
Therefore, a construction theme party was the way to go when celebrating Andreas' Second Birthday. 

The caution tape, construction zone signs, toys and bright orange cones, along with loads of creative handmade details, added that perfect touch.
Not to mention the amazing birthday cake!

Children enjoyed many fun activities and snacked on the themed food and desserts.

So, put on your hard hat and load up on building materials because this party will put the wrecking ball to all the other birthday parties around town!

Lake Valhalla Family Session

There are so many reasons why I love summer.... long, lazy days and warm nights, the smell of freshly mowed grass, fruit from a local farm... etc.
However, spending time outdoor must top that list!

How about an afternoon at the lake?

A private club at Lake Valhalla was the perfect setting for a family session with Jessica and Antonio, and their two adorable boys.

Get ready for cuteness overload!

City Views

How much better can it get?

I got to spend one sunny Sunday afternoon admiring the best views in the world (♥ NYC) while doing what I love!

The Sullivan Family was the winner of my photo session giveaway back in April and they picked the perfect backdrop for their family shoot.

One with Nature

There is something innocent about nature, a sense of peace and serenity.
Nature can offer the perfect backdrop with its lush green foliage and the soothing chirping of birds.

Oh, to be one with nature...
