Holiday Family Session, NYC Meatpacking District

It's holiday season! And what more perfect way to celebrate than by having a Family Holiday Portrait Session?! The pre-planning for a Holiday Shoot is part of the fun too because I know that it's in the little details that bring out the personality of each family. For Monica it was adding a little red, a few scarves and some antique lollipops.  Think about what details would make your Holiday Session sweet... ?

Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the post to see how Monica's Holiday cards turned out ;)

And Viola ~ Holiday Cards!
 I love how the energy from our shoot is perfectly captured in these cards.  And the red is awesome!


East Village, NYC Family Session

I think I have said this before, but I will say it again, I LOVE SHOOTING IN NYC!  You never know what splashes of color you will find right around the corner; a splattering of green ivy with bright red blossoms spilling over a fence, a perfectly poised set of blue and yellow bar stools complete with a side of cappuccino awaiting your arrival, or a city block long wall of graffiti from A-Z.   The winners of my Annual School Auction Family Session and I took to the city streets last week and found lots of these sweet gems everywhere.  A special shout out to Sharon's wardrobe choices ~ I love the way her blue dress and Dean's red shirt pop in these photos! ( I would be lying if I didn't admit to searching out complementary and contrasting colors to make that happen ;) It was a pleasure meeting you guys.  Thanks for rocking out our session!



NOHO, NY family portrait session

On one of those warm days in the middle of this crazy cold winter I caught up with one of my favorite families for a fun afternoon portrait session in their new neighborehood.  I have had the pleasure of documenting both boys as they have grown up with Year In Picture sessions over the past years, and was thrilled to get to hang with them again! I can't believe how big & adorable those boys have gotten :)
