It’s been a while since I’ve blogged… but I have an excellent excuse. On the night of August 1st, my husband and I welcomed our baby girl into the world. Most of the time, I feel like life meanders slowly and steadily and I don’t even notice the changes that are happening around me. But then there are certain rare instances where life takes a sharp and sudden turn that leaves me breathless. Becoming a parent is definitely one of those instances. Here are a few frames from our first days with Elina. Despite some serious sleep deprivation, we’re so incredibly in love with her.


Falcon - She’s so precious, congratulations Priya!

Minnie - Love. Love. Love. These pictures are so special. I especially love the 1st one and the last one in the series…and all the ones in between, particularly the close-ups (4&5). So adorable.

Michelle - Priya, oh I love newborn photos– so so sweet. We have a little one- Elena– so close, to your Elina : ) Congrats!

Geraldine - Wonderful, Priya ! The fourth and fifth photos make me shiver. Good to see you back on the blog :-)

On To Baby – The Boyer Family

On To Baby continuously publishes some of the most beautiful family and baby photography I’ve seen so I’m honored that they featured my “day-in -the-life” family shoot with the Boyers. Check out the full feature here.

Minnie - Congrats on your feature! The happy baby in the swing photo is just adorable. Another great collection!

Hamptons Baby Photographer – Ella & Jacob

I love having the opportunity to document families year after year as they grow and change. Last year I headed out to the Hamptons to photograph Jacob and his parents, and this year I headed back that way to photograph Jacob with his new baby sister, Ella. This family just keeps getting cuter.

New York City Lifestyle Family Photographer – The Boyer Family

I was very excited when Leslie contacted me to document her and her family’s life in NYC.  Leslie is a photographer herself and had combed through a lot of Google results in search of a lifestyle family photographer before she found me (gotta work on the SEO!). Even before I had met them, I had a feeling she and her family would be awesome clients and would be up for some fun photography – I wasn’t wrong.

So this is the Boyer family and this is their New York.
