NYC family photos in Hudson Heights Manhattan

It’s no secret – I love photographing my friends (see another blogpost where I made a similar comment here). I met this beautiful mom in my mother’s group and it was impossible not to fall in love with her. She’s warm, kind and fun-loving. And in the world of new momhood where trying to find new mom friends can be as difficult as dating, there’s not an ounce of this mom that makes you feel that awkwardness. Late night texts with sleep issues (and tears about said sleep issues), teething, sickness, first steps and words – we’ve been through it all together. The only thing bigger than this mom’s heart is the love she has for her family… it’s infectious and you can feel it from miles away – there is nothing this mom won’t do for her family. It is my great honor to call her my friend. These images from our session in Bennett Park represent but a fraction of the love I have for this family, and it's capturing families like hers that make me know I belong behind the camera
