Family Photos in Central Park – Our 4th Annual Shoot!

family photos in central park in fall

I’ve been photographing this lovely family each summer in the Hamptons for years. For their most recent annual shoot, we decided to do family photos in Central Park instead. It was a fun change of pace!

It’s been so fun to watch their twins grow up over the last few years. I can’t wait for our next shoot.

Best Time of Year For Family Photos in Central Park

I do outdoor family shoots in NYC all year round – I’ve done hundreds! I’m lucky to have Central Park nearby, since it offers gorgeous scenery every month of the year. Whether you want spring blossoms, fall foliage, or something in between there’s always something beautiful to see in the Park.

To help you plan your Central Park family photos, I’ve put together a guide to the Park so you can get a sense of it looks like at every point of the year.

What to Wear for Family Photos in Central Park

Clothing is one of the topics I get asked about most. I know planning clothing for the whole family seems a bit daunting, but I definitely don’t want it to be a source of stress. Before your shoot I’ll send you a What To Wear Guide with some tips on how to get everyone coordinating beautifully. You are also welcome to send me cell phone photos of outfits you are considering and we can plan together. We’ll make it easy!

One simple tip to help get you started: select a favorite outfit or clothing item for one person and build everyone else’s look around that. I find that selecting one key outfit or piece (e.g. your new favorite pastel dress, or a great fall blazer you just got your son) and coordinating based on that article of clothing is simpler than trying to conceptualize outfits for everyone out of thin air.

Ok, enough of my blathering, let’s get to the photos.

Summer memories in the Hamptons

Now, just for fun, here is a quick retrospective of some of the East Hampton, NY beach photos this foursome and I have done together over the years.

I love seeing the lush City color palate versus the airy pastels of summer at the beach.

If you’re more into beach shoots we can’t definitely do that.
