Family Session in Chelsea

I received so many intense stares from this little one, and adored each one.

Sweet Brutus, the havanese wonderdog, never wanted to be left out of the fun.

Brutus clearly has a hard life.

It’s quite common for little kids to be drawn to my camera, and she was no exception. I showed her how to press the shutter button, and she loved the sound it produced. So I have quite the collection of close-ups from this session.

The family had a beautiful view from their Chelsea apartment, which she loved to take in.

It’s a good thing fingerprints can easily be cleaned off lenses.

Chicago Family in the Wilderness

I loved spending time with my dear friends and their super cute baby. It’s pretty rare that babies actually want to sit perfectly still and smile for a posed portrait, so I embrace the many faces and movements they make.

UWS Family Chaos

When I enter a home for the first, I never know how the kids are going to react to me. Some will hide behind a parent’s legs, some will drag me to their playroom right away, while others will just stare, not yet sure what to make of me.

This little guy certainly loved to entertain his sister.

She watched me wherever I walked for the first part of this session.

Sometimes the kids need some alone time.

Nightly Routine on the Upper West Side

A nightly routine is a beautiful thing for a child to have with her parents. I was honored to witness this family’s special time with their daughter as they closed out the evening.
