This family won my services from a school donation. The mom is well known in the media world and needed head shots for these beautiful babies. I was thrilled to meet them at the door! Gorgeous little 3 month twins! I love the black velvet for photographing babies, its so dramatic and the subjects really pop!
Her mom picked her up from school and came straight to the park. It was unseasonably warm, luckily, and she had a blast! Apparently this is her first formal photo shoot. Seven is a wonderful age! Between jumping on a thin stairwell banister, doing back bends and hugging a tree to name a few stints, she didn't want to our session to end. The perfect subject!
I photographed this cute little baby as a newborn. He made the business card! Months later we met up with mom and dad in Carl Schurz Park in Manhattan. Dad was had no qualms about setting down the baby on concrete, grass and even prop him up in a tree! He was right behind him so it was "ok" with mom. I think maybe I was the most nervous!
The family was moving out of their home in days and I expected chaos in the apartment, but instead I was greeted by a calm and beautiful mom and newborn...siblings arrived after camp. We took advantage of the big white bed and the wonderful window light. Just minutes to work with the baby before he woke up. He was so alert throughout the entire photo shoot at only a mere week old!
A new addition to this family! I have photographed the two older siblings in my studio awhile back and now that the family is complete, I got a call from the mom letting me know there is another beauty in the family and she was in need to photographs of all! You can imagine who was in charge of the session..we followed her around everywhere, no sitting for this curious 18 month old!
During the holidays families fly in from all over to celebrate. This family came together for Passover, all 17 of them and I got a call from the proud grandmother to document. Cousins, aunts and uncles who haven't seen each other for many months were thrilled to see each other! During some of these images I captured, I wondered what was going on behind my to provoke such laughter! Rumor has it some of the uncles were making silly faces and bunny ears above my head....
I went to my favorite area in New York City to photography a family. The West Village is such a lively mix of people, food, boutiques and art schools. This family had a lovely apartment with lots of natural window light which is my favorite. To top it off the baby's name was Nina! Photographing in homes is a unique experience. As a photographer I relish the different surroundings. Children are so at ease at home so this makes it most fun for them, plenty of treats in the kitchen, lots of toys, what can be better?
