Last week I reintroduced you to little Luca — Sara and Hugh’s precious (and precocious) four-year old. Since the family is leaving New York City to move to California this July, Sara wanted one more portrait. This time documenting something Luca did everyday: his trip to preschool. As a fellow New Yorker, Luca’s commute resonates with all of us, big and small.
The rain held off today, despite the impending forecast of doom. This was good news for my Chelsea family portrait of Sara, Hugh, and little Luca — who is really growing up! (You can see photos from his last photo session here.) Today’s portrait session was all about family fun, both inside and outside. My hats off to mom Sara, who had the entire day planned chock full of activities. There wasn’t a moment lost between playing guitar as a family and blowing bubbles on the terrace to playing with fur-brother Manny and getting measured. We spent the last half of the session running around the local playground with not a raindrop in sight. Check out all the photos below, and enjoy the rest of your weekend! Sunday is supposed to be beautiful here in New York City.
So you’re a parent, and summer is here. One of your goals this season is to get some great photos of your kids. But despite the sunny weather outside, you can’t seem to capture the natural joy that was there a minute ago when the little ones were running around in the backyard. Want to photograph their grinning faces like a pro? Here’s how to get natural smiles out of children, little and big.
Well, it depends upon whom you ask. (And as a NYC newborn photographer, I get asked this quite often.) My camera flash manual would say never use a flash within one meter of a child. An actual medical professional, however, would beg to differ. Here are the details.
I had the pleasure of photographing Alexandra’s maternity portrait today in Manhattan, and wanted to share with you all of the details from the shoot. (Or as I like to call it, what to have ready when the photojournalistic maternity photographer arrives at your door.)
Another set of photos to make you wish you were in Florida! Plus, a tale that may make you want to wait until alligator mating season is over to book your own visit down south.
I spent the past week surrounded by family, enjoying the warm weather of Florida. My camera was almost always at hand, mainly so that I could capture every moment spent with my little cousins. Ranging in age from 6 to 13, they are all a bundle of energy and never stand still for a photo. But that’s when the magic happens.
