A family session at Brooklyn Bridge Park NYC

One thing you never tire of in this line of work is seeing the love that different families have. This session was a special occasion, as this cute little guy had just turned 1 and his parents, who used to be New York residents, are here for the summer. They chose the Brooklyn Bridge Park area for our session, which is a really fun space to play in - the options are endless with no shortage of great scenery. Some of the extended family joined in for the session too. I get the sense that family time is rare in this family because the respective family members live across Europe, India and the UAE. The fact that they were all able to get together for this little guy's milestone birthday was incredibly sweet and I image no small feat. Kids grow so quickly that I really do hope these images serve as a reminder of that time they were all able to get together in NYC
