Gary and Elsa are almost ready to celebrate Aman's first birthday in November and decided to book their first family portrait session. I met them in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn to shoot some photos inside their home and around their beautiful neighborhood. We finished at Saratoga Park, in the bed of brightly colored fall leaves.
I shot the Bierbaum’s family portrait in Battery Park City, a lower Manhattan neighborhood that I’m quickly becoming familiar with. I love this area’s mix of gorgeous parks and glinting urban streets. And it didn’t hurt that this family brought serious style! Those yellows!
Photos taken in Prospect Park.
I’ve only been living in Brooklyn for a year now and am still discovering all the places that families live, play, and thrive in this city of cities. I shot family portraits of the O’Briens in Battery Park City, where they reside. This neighborhood includes tall apartment complexes, a stunning shot of the World Trade Center, a park cove along the Hudson River, and the intense wind that soars off the water down their streets. It’s beautiful!
