Yes, I sound like a broken record, but one of my favorite things about this job is getting to photograph families as they GROW. I got to work with this family when little J was just 8 months old, and now he is TWO and going to *bee* a big brother (*see his shirt*)! We shot these on Pier A in Hoboken, NJ – it was especially chilly and windy so we beat the cold inside at the historic Hoboken train station, and then finished up in the Court Street alley, one of my favorite spots in town! Big thank you to this family for entrusting me to capture their family’s memories two times!!
I just love when parents dress their kids to impress for a photo shoot. There is no better time to go all out as you will enjoy these images on your walls for many years to come. This dapper dude and his family rocked it – they are such an awesome crew, and I think these photos truly reflect their love and energy. And Little D is so handsome with his piercing blue eyes and infectious smile!
Such an a fun photo shoot with this Hoboken family! How could it not be when we spent half the shoot on a playground?! This little guy was up for anything active, and even brought his own golf club with him! His parents adore him to no end, and I think it shows here. Not to mention how cute Mom and Dad are together – I just LOVE the cheek kiss shot of them! We had amazing weather, and were able to capture some awesome NYC skyline views as well. Thanks to this incredible trio for a great photo session!
First, check out these photos. Second, check out Project Sunshine, an amazing organization that sends thousands of volunteers into medical facilities to bring programs to children. Programs such as parties, celebrity visits, and the arts allow children facing medical challenges to still be kids, to smile, and to take their minds off their medical conditions. Programs are carried out by Project Sunshine’s extraordinary fleet of volunteers, many of whom are young professionals and college students. This particular event, appropriately named the “Hearts Party”, and scheduled near Valentine’s Day, is held at a large NYC hospital each year, and honors the brave children who have been treated in their pediatric cardiology department.
I should also mention Project Sunshine is my former employer! What a fulfilling place to have worked!
(For privacy reasons, I am only able to post pics of volunteers and staff…to see a few more of my pics click here).
How lucky I am to photograph families as they grow! I first met this family in the fall of 2011 when E was only 6 months old…and now he is almost two! E is full of energy and loves his precious little brother, who was just three weeks old when these photos were taken. Shot in their amazing Hoboken apartment, we used lots of fun props like funky baskets and hats, and an amazing football ensemble too! I am really excited about these sweet images of newborn baby and his older brother. Big thanks to this awesome family for choosing to work with me twice!
