I’ve been hibernating to get through this brutal New York winter. You, too? Thankfully, spring arrives today and we’ll welcome all that it brings: fragrant flowers, the return of bright green grass and warmer, longer days. So, let’s get outside and celebrate the thaw with a mini-shoot on May 3rd! We’ll capture the color and energy of the season–and enough family photos to inspire your Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts.
Join me for some fresh air and sunshine against one of Manhattan’s most beautiful backdrops: Madison Square or Central Park. No jacket (or scarf or mittens!) required.
Date: Saturday, May 3rd with a rain date of Saturday, May 10th
9am – 12pm: Central Park, exact location TBD
1pm – 4pm: Madison Square Park, on 23rd and Madison Avenue
A mini-shoot includes a half-hour photo shoot, approximately 25 images presented in an online gallery, and one 8×10 enlargement. This time I’m also including one digital file, valued at $175! A CD of all the images may be purchased for $450. Gift certificates are available.
This family used to live in NYC and has since moved to London. Mom (blue dress) and I met up for a run and coffee when I was there visiting. Anyone who offers a running tour through a city I’ve never been to, get’s an A+ in my book. They were home visiting family last summer and we met up at their house in Westport for a photo shoot. Our shoot came to an end over a glass of wine, where they told me they plan to move back soon. Fingers crossed.
It’s been so long since I’ve blogged I nearly forgot how to. One of my many resolutions: blog more often. I will kick off the end to my hiatus with one of my favorite shoots from last year. This amazing family in Central Park, right as the sun began to set. The light was so good I could have eaten it with a fork.
One of my first Hamptons sessions this summer was in Shelter Island with this adorable couple, Vanessa and Duncan. Mom-to-be is the brains behind Sensible Sitters, my go-to resource for babysitters when out east. We met in a NYC Starbucks shortly after Conner was born, right as we were both starting our businesses. Since then, Vanessa has built a comprehensive childcare resource that provides families with wonderful, reliable and energetic babysitters across the country. Make sure to check our her website. I’m in awe of her success!
