Wakelea's 1st Birthday!

We had the sincere joy of photographing Wakelea's 1st birthday last Sunday and celebrating her year on earth with young friends, family, and cupcakes.  Her parents, CJ and Sarah, pulled out all the stops and created a beautiful party that was fun for both kids and parents alike - with Wakelea's cake-eating extravaganza being the highlight of the day's event.  Thank you CJ and Sarah for letting us be involved in the first of many celebrations in Wakelea's life!

The Blanks

The New York landscape offers a great backdrop for documentary-style images - and the photos of the Blanks are some of our favorite family portraits.  The twin girls were a joy to work with and the warm summer day made it a perfect setting for a play date in the park.  Thank you Blanks for your inspired city-scape portraits! 

Rebecca & Julia's 1st Birthday

Photographing Rebecca and Julia's 1st birthday was truly a wonderful treat!  The Hackers rented a space in the Upper West Side Jewish Community Center and invited all the friends the girls had made in their young lives.  The party goers celebrated with sing-a-longs, balloons, bubbles, and cake and the twin sisters loved every minute of it!  Happy Birthday, girls!

Elizabeth and Rajeev's Wedding

Elizabeth and Kate go way High School days. So when Elizabeth asked us to photograph her wedding - we jumped at the chance!  Elizabeth and Rajeev have been together for many years and there was a beautiful sense of ease and comfort when we were around them.  They currently reside in L.A. but decided to fly up to Portland, where Elizabeth is from, and marry in the cool shade on a summer day in a Northeast Portland water tower park.  The wedding guests then walked down to a local restaurant, Lucca, and ate and danced the night away.  

We feel privileged to be a part of the celebration of Elizabeth and Rajeev's love and hope that our photographic relationship will continue as their family grows.
