Benjamin at Prospect Park - Brooklyn family photo session


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!

You can see the full slideshow here.

If you're a friend of the family, please leave a comment below wishing them well. You'll also help them win a complimentary 8x10 print if they get 25 comments, a mounted 11x14 print if they get 50 comments and a beautiful 10x10 canvas gallery wrap if they get 75 comments, all by November 11th, 2011!

And if you're interested in a photo session yourself for next year (I'm fully booked for this year) sign up for a complimentary be inspired mini sample kit and you'll also be the first to know when the 2012 High Line session dates open up.

Falling in love with fall - Prospect Park family photo session

I love spring and I love summer. I love gorgeous sunny days hanging out at the park or the beach. I love long evenings when it's still light out. For me, summer means freedom and light clothing and the sun on your face.

This year, though, I've fallen in love with fall as I've come to realize it's not just about the beautiful colors of the changing leaves. The light is different in the fall - softer, more diffuse, more subtle.

Fall has always been a gorgeous season but for me has brought the dread of cold and windy and grey winter days. Those days are pretty much upon us (it was COLD last night!) but I'm actually kind of looking forward to exploring the winter light as well. I love the slightly wintery look of some the photos from my session a couple of weeks ago in Prospect Park with Lindsay, Rafa and their adorable two year old son Leo.

The good thing was that it wasn't yet very cold so coats could be dispensed with. There was running and chasing and laughing and giggling... and even a little bit of baseball. What's a fall afternoon in the park without a little baseball, after all?

This photo is one of my favorites - spontaneous joy!

Thank you Lindsay, Rafa and Leo for a fun afternoon in the park!

Beautiful family beautiful light - Prospect Park family session

The weather last Friday was beautiful - a little humid perhaps, but a gorgeous "indian" summer afternoon in late September. Faith was the second prize winner in my giveaway last spring, and as she couldn't make the portrait party on Sunday I arranged a special mini-session for her and her family.

Faith and Andrew knew each other in college but reconnected at a wedding. They now have a beautiful 15 month old son, Lian, who is already being exposed to English, Mandarin and French - wow!

The moment Lian looked up at me from his stroller with his big wide eyes, I knew my job was going to be easy. Andrew beamed proudly as I exclaimed over him and Faith and I instantly bonded over motherhood stories.

Faith was well prepared for our session with different outfits, toys and snacks, and Lian was delightful from the start, playful, curious and even willing to trust met to hold his hand as we ran down a hill. It was a beautiful afternoon in the park with gorgeous weather and I really enjoyed just hanging out with this family.

Faith, Andrew and Lian - thank you so much! You can view the slideshow here.

With everyone's different schedules, I have actually ended up scheduling all the portrait party sign-ups as private mini-sessions - we are off to a great start!
