Delivered!

I love delivering orders, especially when I get to see my clients open their goodies. This past weekend was no exception when I attended another Baby Basics NYC meeting to distribute artwork to all the families I photographed.

Each family selected five gift prints and most chose one 8x10 and a mixture of 5x7s and wallets. Many requested high res digital files which I also provided. It was really fun putting together so many orders at once and handing them out!

Overall, the experience of working with Baby Basics NYC was fantastic and I will definitely be doing more non-profit events in the future. If you have suggestions or work for or run a non-profit organization that serves people who would benefit from such an event, please let me know.

Thanks again to Carol of NYCityMama and Corine of Complicated Mama" for introducing me to Baby Basics NYC. Thank you also to those that supported this event financially. I have a little bit of money left over so that money will go directly to Baby Basics - hooray!

And yup, that's right, I took photos of photos.

Stroller buddies

I love this photo from the Baby Basics NYC Portrait Event. These two look like such good friends don't they?!

I'm also loving the feedback I'm getting from the families and volunteers at Baby Basics NYC. And the good news is that I have raised enough money to cover the costs - thank you so much to everyone who supported this event!

The Baby Basics NYC Portrait Event

Meet the families and volunteers of Baby Basics NYC at last Saturday's portrait event! And don't forget, all proceeds from sales at the acfp store will go towards covering the costs of this event, or you can make a donation!

As those of you who have been following the blog know, Baby Basics NYC is a non-profit organization that provides mentoring, support, education and diapers for low-income working families.

The organization appealed to me because its programs are very similar to the kinds of programs I attended and found so helpful myself as a new mom, as well as providing opportunities for families to connect, just like a mom's group.

I also believe that every family deserves beautiful portraits that will make them feel good about who they are and what they do every day, so I was very excited when I approached Brenda Grassey, Founder and Director of Baby Basics NYC, about donating my time and talent and she accepted!

I had a GREAT time on Saturday hanging out with everyone and taking photos. I couldn't have asked for a better day - the weather was gorgeous, Riverside Park was beautiful and all the families were so excited about having their photographs taken. And I have to say, I am just a teensy bit proud of the fact that I photographed 10 families in 90 minutes!

Really, I had the best time. The families were all great to work with and the kids were so much fun. Here's a sneak peak - families, all your photos will be available shortly!

For fathers everywhere

I always knew my husband would make a great father, but he's an even better father than I expected. He and my son have a special bond and I'm basically chopped liver when they're together - which is totally fine by me!

The thing that I love the most about my husband as a father is that he really really loves being a father. And one of the great things about what I do is that I get to work with fathers who are all really into their kids. I know that many don't get to spend as much time as they'd like to with their families but they definitely make the most out of the time they have.

Happy Father's Day to fathers past, present and future, and to all those who father in any way. To those who are celebrating their first Father's Day with babe in arms, congratulations!

Special thoughts to those who are struggling or have struggled to become a father, and to those who have lost a child or a father. I am thinking of you too.

The image above is from this week's times square series over at the acfp store. I am really excited about this series - the photos were taken on my iphone! I did some test prints and the results were amazing, especially with the "dreamy" pearlescent finish I use for all my prints. I am definitely going to be experimenting more with iphone photography.

Don't forget, all proceeds from this month's sales at the store will help cover the costs of the Baby Basics NYC portrait event which took place this weekend and was a really great experience for me - so much fun working with such great families. Look for a blog post later this week with more details.
