Owen & Isobel at the High Line - NYC family photo session


When I was just starting my business, I ran a giveaway for a photo session, and it so happened that the winner was a mom who lived one block from us! She ended up becoming a friend and connecting me up with an amazing group of local moms.

Sarah is one of them. Her toddler, Owen, is just a little younger than Liam, and she was one of the first amongst us to enter the world of second-time-motherhood with the lovely Isobel, just 2 months old at the time of our High Line photo session at the end of October. I was thrilled when Sarah got in touch to schedule their family session, not least because she is an avid knitter. During our planning consultation, I encouraged her to include lots of handknits in the wardrobe for the day!

She didn't disappoint - look at Owen's gorgeous orange sweater, and Isobel's purple pants, both knitted by Sarah!


In fact, I loved the ensemble of the entire family, and as they had preferred candids to posed photos, we had so much fun just hanging out.



Owen shares Liam's obsession with construction vehicles, so it was very familiar territory for me.


And how cute is Isobel?



Sarah, James, Owen and Isobel - thank you so much for such a fun photo session, and I can't wait to get you your order!

Hannah & Kate at the High Line - NYC family photo session


From the minute I first talked to Rebekah on the phone, I knew we would get on fabulously - she exudes warmth and friendliness and clearly adores being a mom.

On my last High Line session date of the year, I got to meet the whole family for a photo session.


Hannah is two, and only a few months younger than Liam, and her baby sister Kate was just four months old. I was thrilled to capture this sweet moment of them together and delighted that Rebekah and Ian ordered it as the 16x20 centerpiece of their wall gallery.


I love photographing toddlers, probably because, with one of my own, I'm very used to going with the flow and following their lead with regards to what they have in mind at any particular moment (at least when I'm photographing them - I'm a little more directive when I'm trying to get a certain someone, oh, say, changed and out the door in time for preschool, for example!)

Hannah, like Liam or really any toddler that age, had a little bit of a mind of her own about how the photo session was going to go, but that made her a total blast to chase around and capture - strong personalities make for the best photos! These are some of my favorites...



Kate, of course, fulfilled her duty of chilling out and looking adorable!


Rebekah, Ian, Hannah and Kate, thank you so much for a great photo session! I can't wait to get you your beautiful wall gallery and DVD!

Stella and Kiran at the High Line - NYC family photo session


Nicole is a neighborhood mom (in fact, I ran into her at the park the other day!) and photosanity workshop participant with a beautiful family I was lucky enough to photograph last month at the High Line.


How adorable are these two? Nicole warned me that Stella, aged four, is very used to the camera and in fact prone to posing, but she was an absolute delight - very natural and bubbly, and of course, a very proud big sister.

And Kiran... well, Kiran won me over with those big wide eyes.


Nicole and Pratik ordered this image as a 16x20 - gorgeous!

I always love putting a mom photographer in front of the camera with her kids for a change...


Nicole, Pratik, Stella and Kiran - thank you so much for a wonderful photo session. I can't wait to get you your order!

Penny and Liam at the High Line - NYC family photo session


The minute I met Jane, Martin and their two kids Penny and Liam, I knew we were going to get along famously. Penny immediately started spinning and twirling for me, showing off her tutu and gorgeous shoes (designed by her mom, no less!)



Liam, just 9 months old, was very good natured and happy to just chill.



And the two of them together were just adorable!


Did I mention how much I love tutus?


Thank you Jane, Martin, Penny and Liam for such a fun and relaxed photo session! And congrats to Martin on his new job!

Gabriel at the High Line - NYC family photo session


I've photographed a lot of one year olds lately, which is totally fine by me! It's such a great age... well, I suspect that every age is, but what I love about one year olds is how they are just coming into their own as far as showing their personality and being lively and expressive, and they are usually pretty laid back and happy. Gabriel was no exception, and he and his parents Stephanie and Tom were so easy to hang out with and catch great moments of.



Yes, as any one year old should be, Gabriel was a little dubious at first, but once he checked things out and decided I was ok, he broke out the smile - look at it!


He had a lot of fun trying to climb up the sloped end of the High Line benches and then sliding down again - who wouldn't?

And once the smiles started, there was no stopping them... the photos below of him with Stephanie and then Tom are some of my favorites!



Thank you Stephanie, Tom and Gabriel for a super fun and adorable photo session!
