An NYC newborn session in the Financial District of Downtown Manhattan

I never tire of stepping into homes with new lives in them. There’s something about a newborn session with a family’s first child – everything is so new, so raw and so beautifully precious. I am constantly amazed at how easy first-time parents make it look when I meet them. Take this couple for instance – tired parents? Nope – they didn’t complain about sleep once during my visit. Life on hold while you adjust to a new baby? Nope – they were headed off on their first family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard shortly after our session. The session took place at the family’s Downtown Manhattan home (see another downtown newborn session I did recently here) and although they had only moved into their new home a week or so before, their place was entirely set up.
