I adored working with with lovely family, in a family maternity shoot overlooking Manhattan. It was great documenting some of their few remaining evenings before their baby boy is born. Their gorgeous daughter was full of laughs and gave me some terrific gluten-free recipe ideas.
As you know, I love doing shoots in Central Park, it’s definitely one of my favorite spots for New York City family photography. But – lest we forget – some of the most quintessential NYC views are elsewhere in the City. This is one of my favorite locations for people looking for shoots with the NYC skyline in the background.
As a romantic bonus, we saw a man propose to his girlfriend just as we were wrapping up the shoot. The man had arranged in advance for rose petals to be put on the ground with an illuminated “MARRY ME” sign beside it. (I imagine that put quite a bit of pressure on all the other non-engaged couples walking by?) It was really beautiful, and we all cheere
It was super showing off one of my favorite backdrops in NYC, and this joyful trio was an absolute delight. I love the matching mother/daughter dresses. They were perfect on for this hot summer evening. Thank you so much for a wonderful shoot! I can’t wait to meet your baby boy.
This baby boy is already so loved. His big sister has lots of great baby name suggestions, her favorite being “King Flower.”
