A gorgeous fall afternoon in Prospect Park, a beautiful baby boy with big wide eyes, a fun family of three generations... what more could you ask for?!
Did I mention the little chubby not-yet-one-year-old cheeks? And the beautiful fall colors?
Erica is one of my current photosanity workshop participants, so I was delighted when she approached me about a family photo session for when her mother was visiting from Hawaii. I love including grandparents and extended family - it creates more relationships and moments to capture and adds special meaning to the session.
Plus I always love when workshop participants become portrait clients. I mean, I have amazing clients in general, but when they're from the workshop, they already know me, my style, my approach, and the philosophies behind what I do, and I already know that they value photography and are commited to creating beautiful photo documentation of their family's life.
Erica and her family were no exception. Not only that, but Erica did all her homework ahead of time - she clearly communicated her expectations, read over everything I sent her carefully and asked me lots of questions beforehand so that everything went really smoothly.
And I just loved how much fun the family were able to have on the day!
Erica, Peter, Benjamin and Judy, thank you so much for a great afternoon in the park! I can't wait to get you your order!
