Family photos in DUMBO Brooklyn

'Tis the season for vacation and travel. You could say New York City has its good points in any season, but the holiday season in December is pretty spectacular - the lights, the shows, the festivities - the chaotic pace doesn't lessen just because the temp drops. This lovely family, visiting from Alabama, decided to visit NYC for their vacation, and although these images may appear as though they were taken on a beautiful fall day, I assure you it was coldy, cold, cold outside (for another family session that was shot in chilly weather, check out this post). Sadly, this family got a true New York experience: a terrorist threat that sent the subways, and the city, into chaos - it saw us meeting some hour and a half after our scheduled shoot time, but the girls were blissfully unaware, or bounced back super quickly, and mom and dad's spirits weren't dampened at all. For all of you reading, I hope you have as much fun viewing images of these two very spirited girls, as I did at this family session
