Cobble Hill is a wonderful neighborhood to photograph in. Its full of character - the gorgeous brownstones, iron gates, blooming flowers, greenery and countless families. This family, in particular, is an integral part of my Brooklyn life and community. I met them over 8 years ago when I moved into their apartment building. My children has grown up with their child - our families, with others, getting together for special occasions, BBQs and Superbowl parties. They are kind, caring and loving. Its a better world with them in it.
Precious girl...her happy smile says it all. Fabulous family. I truly LOVE my Brooklyn people!
Whether you are an out-of-town visitor or a local New Yorker, the Brooklyn Bridge is a special landmark that everybody wants to photograph. It is full of character and remains a symbol for both Brooklyn and NYC. This family, too, is full of character - present, active and loving parents, a daughter on the verge of adulthood and a vivacious young daughter who adores everyone in her life. It was an honor to photograph this special family in this very unique lively city that I have called my home for 20 years.
December was crazy busy with winter holiday studio portraits. These authentic and happy faces of Brooklyn's next generation showed up with so much confidence and full of smiles. All day long they made my laugh...they made me feel so optimistic. Our future is, indeed, bright with these kids.
I had the great pleasure of meeting this special and lovely family through a fantastic preschool in Bed Stuy. This superman of a little boy is quite unique. He has the women in his life wrapped around his finger and for good reason. That smile....that laughter....that twinkle in his eye....All was in full display this beautiful morning over Memorial Day weekend in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Memories captured for a lifetime!
I've been photographing this Austin-based family for 6 years now. I recently was going through my photography archives and was struck by the beauty of how a family grows and the stage-by-stage development of a child. The transformation is truly amazing.
