Shannon | Central Park Maternity

Shannon is breath taking.  I don't know what else to say.  She makes pregnancy look easy.  We ran around Central Park last week in the magic of fall with her husband Michael and 1 year old daughter Hadley.  We tried getting some group pics...but come on if you were little wouldn't you just want to run + play all over the place too?  (I'm 30...and it's what I want to do too!)

Congratulations Michael + Shannon on welcoming Baby #2.  I can't wait to meet her!

XO,

Kat

Stephen + Tara | Central Park Lifestyle

CentralPark.NYC.Engagements.TS084

Stephen is from the UK + Tara is from Florida.  Their paths crossed when they were teenagers as Stephen's family took yearly holidays in Florida, and their family became friends.  After one of their first meetings Stephen told his siblings that one day he would marry a girl like Tara.  Years later, after high school graduations, college graduations, and several moves their paths merged once again in Florida.  The connection was instantaneous.  They began the long distance phone calls and emails, and a year later Stephen proposed, and a year after that they got married.

They're now celebrating their 2 year anniversary, and what better way to spend it than in NYC?  (I mean you really can't beat fall in New York!).  Tara + Stephen thank you for sharing your story with me + allowing me to capture you!

The best is yet to come!

XO,

Kat

Bruno + Yuri | Times Square Lifestyle Session

Bruno and Yuri met over 8 years ago when they were set up on a blind date.  Yuri is a designer, and Bruno is on the police force in San Paolo Brasil.  Something just clicked on that first date, and they have been together ever since. Here’s the fun part:  these two just got married in Brasil and are on an epic honeymoon journey starting here in New York City, then they’re off to Tokyo, and finally Rome before heading home!  In each city they’re getting their pictures done to capture their honeymoon in all of its different stages.   I was honored that I got to capture them here in The Big Apple.

Lucky for them we had their session the day before Polar Vortex Parte dos visited Manhattan.  We started at the rooftop of their eclectic hotel Pod 39, headed to Grand Central, had adventures on the subway, literally ran through Times Square, and played at Rockafeller Plaza.  It was a photography session of epic proportions, and what I loved about our time is how genuine and grounded they both are.  They have such security in their love; it was beautiful to witness.

Yuri + Bruno enjoy your travels, and thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of your journey!

Atlanta Portraits | Matthew + Karlin

ManhattanEngagementPhotography 1

Matthew and Karlin just might be the most fashionable real life people that I know.  (On top of that they're both from the South, and are the sa-weetest people you will ever meet in your life).  However, as I was packing for my trip to spend the weekend with them in their home state of Georgia I was a little intimidated by their awesomeness.  BUT…as soon as I stepped foot off that airplane and Karlin picked me up in her Prius with Drake blasting on the stereo, I knew it was going to be a fun weekend.

Karlin and I met several years ago when her and Matthew modeled for a shoot I produced in Atlanta.  We became fast friends via the phone and texting, but never actually met in person.  Karlin is an incredibly talented photographer and brought me out to ATL (shawty) to photograph her head shots for her new website.  As soon as I got in that car full of Drake, and drove off from the airport we started talking, and basically didn't stop until the moment I left a few days later.

We had so much fun eating yummy southern healthy fried food, going to Sid Mashburn (I could honestly live in that store), talking about boyz, drinking red wine, cuddling with their puppies, and taking lots  and lots of pictures.  Here are a few of my favorites that I shot of her and her wonderful husband Matthew.

Enjoy:)
