Maternity Photoshoot in Dumbo, Brooklyn

At this point you probably have realised that I love photographing in Brooklyn, specially around Dumbo area. On a sunny day, the gold colour around sunset time gives the photos such a romantic and soft feel.

The weather in NY changes so quickly that I rather wait till last minute before canceling a photoshoot. The day I met with Camila and Julien, had been raining for entire morning and when I was almost losing hope, we had such a beautiful afternoon with a golden sun at the background! <3 Perfect scenario for a maternity photoshoot by the Brooklyn Bridge and Jane’s Carousel!

Juliana in Williamsburg

One of the most gratifying part of my work is to get to know such interesting people and exchange experiences, culture, thoughts and see that we have so much to learn yet, no matter the age. This young girl is half Brazilian, half Chinese and is studying Global Development in Canada. When I asked her if she thinks about going back to Brazil one day, she says that there's so much she wants to study and learn and experience that she won't have time to belong to only one place in life. Just go, girl! You have the entire world to conquer! 


A day at Coney Island

Coney Island is a symbol of American popular culture and an escaping place from the summer heat in New York City, although the beaches are currently not a natural feature - sand has been redeposited on the beaches via beach nourishment since 1922-1923.

Coney Island started to become a resort area after 1829 and Between about 1880 and World War II, it was the largest amusement area in the United States with three major amusement parks: Luna Park, Dreamland, and Steeplechase Park. Since the 1920s, all property north of the boardwalk and south of Surf Avenue was zoned for amusement and recreational use only. Luna Park closed in 1946 after a series of fires and the street gang problems of the 1950s spilled into Coney Island and the local economy was particularly damaged by the 1964 closing of Steeplechase Park.

After some revitalization, the reopening of the Luna Park on middle of 2010 and the first new roller coasters to be built at Coney Island in eighty years were opened as part of efforts to reverse the decline of the amusement area. Coney Island has been featured in many films, television shows, cartoons, theatrical plays and it hosts many events including the famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and the  Coney Island Mermaid Parade.

It’s indeed a pretty interesting place and a must visit place. Just remember, the parks and rides are closed during winter.
