J Fall Family Photos | Brooklyn Family Photography

Like so many families I meet in Brooklyn, the J family had relocated from somewhere not so nearby. In this case, China, which I find pretty cool. There's only so much time to ask personal questions during a session, so I didn't quite get my curiosity about living in China satisfied, but maybe another time. I meet up with the J family and their dog Frida late October in Prospect Park, for a very relaxed photo session. Sara had asked me for a lot of candid photos of the family, because she (like a lot of parents) didn't have many pictures of the three of the together. Fall just so happens to be a great time for fun candid photos, because leaves on the ground make for such a fun game for a one year old.  Kai just turned one year old and is already bilingual (yes, I feel a tiny bit of jealousy, just a tiny one)! He has a thoughtful expression, like a lot of one year olds. We found some leaves to play in and he dove right into the fun of throwing leaves in the air. How can you resist - right? Even Frida got in on the fun.









Mirabel's One Year Photos | Brooklyn Bridge Park Photography

Come November the weather in NYC can get unpredictable. I've heard of snow on Halloween before, but haven't experience it yet. It was down right cold when I meet up with Mirabel and her mom and dad at the Brooklyn Bridge Park. But a little cold isn't going to stop New Yorkers - so we bundled up and shot away! Mirabel's mom and dad specifically requested to meet at Jane's Carousel, because they wanted the photos in this amazing location and they thought that Mirabel would have a great time riding the carousel. They were absolutely right! I love how she starts out a little astonished and her expression changes to sheer joy. At the end of winter, I'm so sick of the cold, but I love how these photos really look like NYC in the late fall - chilly and gray, but you can always find a spot to warm up.







Dez's One Year Photos | Brooklyn Family Photography

Dezmond's parents wanted to combine his one year photos with some family shots that they could use for their Christmas cards, which is one of the conveniences of having a November birthday. The bright red they wore looked some great on this overcast late Fall day in Prospect Park. Dezmond's mom works in the Park, so she knows it much better than I do. She took us over to the children's garden part of the park, where there were some gorgeous steps for Dez to get his climbing practice in. My son is just a couple months old than Dez, so it was like a flash back to the milestones that Louis had just learned - the climbing, walking, and all that pointing. I love the colors and this kids blue eyes - they just pop! Check out this gorgeous little fam...
