Porches, yards, stairs, spacious rooms…what does an ex-Brooklyn family do with all this square footage?
When the leaves are this green and lush (thanks buckets of rain!) the browns of the buildings really pop. It's hot out for sure, but July in the city is awfully pretty.
Big sister is waiting...
I'll admit, I have a soft spot for sessions that are held at home. Incorporating a family's daily environment, where so much time is spent, adds a layer of meaning to photos that aim to capture "who we are right now." NYC has no shortage of interesting and beautiful locations, but sometimes the most interesting and most beautiful are the playroom, the kitchen, the front steps, the street you live on, etc. I photographed this family after they moved from Brooklyn to their new home in The Rockaways. We also made it to the beach down the block. DOWN THE BLOCK!
On a lovely street, in a lovely part of Brooklyn, I made a new little friend. Or maybe my camera did? So much eye contact!
