This family loves the annual tradition of capturing this specific place in time with their family - the kids are growing so fast! Everyone in the family loves having these special captured moments and looking at these photographs throughout their home. As much as i-phone photos are convenient - it doesn't compare to the special-ness of professional family portraits. For Mom and Dad, the relationship between their kids is simply amazing...they are in love and it's so beautiful to watch the relationship grow. Their family's love is unique and contagious. I wish this love and happiness for all the families that I photograph.
Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park always makes for a fantastic backdrop for a fabulous family photography session. This awesome family didn't disappoint. The kids acted like kids. The parents held them close and made them smile with love. And everyone had belly laughs...especially me. There's nothing better than kids to show adults what an authentic moment is and what life is truly all about.
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 known the mom in this family for decades - we went to the same high school. But I've never known her in her role as a mother. She is not only a kind and fun friend but she is a fantastic and present mother to her 3 beautiful children and a true partner to her fabulous husband. I'm so glad that when I returned to my hometown of Washington, DC, I got to join this family for all their family fun as well as captured all the laughs and smiles. Memorable photographs to last a lifetime.
I've been friends with this fun and funny family for 4 years now....once they moved in the apartment down the hall from me. We have done so many things together...playdates, sledding, dinners and even an ongoing bookclub. But this time together was the first time I captured them for an official family photography. The results speak for themselves. Red Hook...we love you!
Cobble Hill Park is one of those quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood parks. Its a park that the community adores....not only is it picturesque but it is also a place where young toddlers can play in the sandbox, ride on the dolphin statue or have an adventure going down the slide. Its a destination where adults go to have a pleasant outdoor lunch, leisurely read a book on a park bench or relax on a picnic blanket on the green grass. For this family, Cobble Hill Park acted as a perfect backdrop where together we captured the love and connection of their family. I can't wait to do it again with this loving 4-some.
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.
Call it a clan,
Call it a network,
Call it a tribe,
Call it a family:
Whatever you call it,
Whoever you are,
You need one.
