Sady & Dave's Maternity Session | Brookdale Park, Montclair NJ

I photographed Sady & Dave’s Wedding at the Lake Mohawk Mountain House some years ago, and I was so excited when they asked if I could photograph their Maternity session. We chose Brookdale Park because it’s special to Sady & Dave and their 2 fur babies, and they wanted to commemorate this time before they became a family of 5.

I love these so much and I love creating backlit portraits like this! We had originally scheduled for a day that turned out kind of dreary so we decided to re-schedule for the next sunny day available. Completely worth it!

Moment in Color Film No. 4 | Contax 645

Sigh! The one that got away.

The Contax 645 that is.

When I purchased the 645 I had other medium format film cameras in my collection, including the Mamiya rz67 pro II, the Pentax 67 and the Hasselblad 500c. I admittedly bit off more than I could chew and didn’t really dedicate the time to learn my way around the Contax. So I played with it for a little bit and quickly sold it.

What a regret!

Below, my favorite Contax 645 images from a birthday shoot.

So nice to reminisce with these! If you’re new around here, I shoot both digital and film. Check out the categories Moment on BW film and Moment in Color Film to see more.
