Pía’s parents had contacted us not too long ago about a family photo session in New York City. Excitingly enough, they had heard about us through one of their friends (aka another family we had the honor of photographing last fall). We eventually decided upon Carl Schurz Park, an increasingly favorite spot of ours for photo sessions. Home to Gracie Mansion, an outdoor dog run, and a family-friendly environment, we spent our entire session playing with bubbles and exploring the various areas of the park. Special thanks to our friend YanShu for the lighting assistance- couldn’t have done the family photos without your help. Enjoy some of our favorite images below.
Last but not least, I wanted to include one of my favorite moments from their session– see the last photo & the accompanying text.
Earlier this fall, Oliver and his parents joined me (Jon) for a family photo session at Carl Schurz Park in New York City. We spent the afternoon strolling through this magnificent jewel of a park– spacious green lawns, kid-friendly walkways and a great view of the East River. Best of all, this family was extremely warm and easygoing from the start– especially Oliver. In fact, Oliver spent very little time shying away from me before he repeatedly approached me and offered me to play with his toys. For a little guy just shy of his second birthday, he was really sociable and outgoing.
As you will see in the photos below, a lot of our time was spent blowing bubbles. Lots and lots of bubbles. In fact, Oliver’s mom told me “bubbles” was his first word. I can’t even remember the last time I played with bubbles for fun, but over the last few months I’ve been fortunate enough to have bubbles included in a few recent photo shoots. I must admit…I’ll probably go and pickup a few bottles of my own during the winter months. Hope you all enjoy this latest set!
