It’s not every day that I do individual portrait sessions, so I was excited when Denise contacted me for some “just because” photos in New York City. After raising three (now adult) children and working her way up the corporate ranks, she is finally in a place where she can start focusing on herself. So this photo session was a way to document this new and exciting chapter in her life! Though she resides in Florida, we agreed to meet up while she was in town on business for a session around the areas of downtown NYC where she grew up. If you’re ever wondering why I love capturing people, just one look at these photos explains it all. There’s nothing more gratifying than watching a person come into a session a little nervous and apprehensive and leaving with more confidence and hopefully, having had the time of their lives!
