Family photos in Midtown Manhattan

It’s really wonderful getting to meet adventurous families. And this family fits right into that category. I was lucky enough to be asked to document a few memories during their annual vacation to New York from Luxembourg – they visit each year right around this time of year. Despite the weather being on the chilly side, we had a hoot. Both mom and dad know their way around town having both lived in New York City for about 10 years some time ago. I think this family epitomizes all that you want from a great family session – they were super relaxed and rolled with whatever their kids did (not easy with a 1 and 3 year old) and the backdrop for our session was great – the streets of Midtown Manhattan (for an in home session I did recently in the area, check out this post). This mom and dad know that you can make fun anywhere and it’s about capturing that love and connection, which can reveal itself in any setting – you don’t need to be in front of the most iconic building in NYC to have that happen. I suspect it’s not long until this family grows, I’m just sad I won’t be around to meet their new addition, but I very much hope we cross paths again the next time they vacation in New York. To the rest of you, check out these too-cute-for-words kids!
