The End of the Day – Westchester NY Family Photographer

I am woefully behind on blogging. So, in an effort to catch up, I’d like to share a few favorites from a session I shot for Tiffany and her family. They were gracious enough to also allow me to film it for the workshop I teach.

Rockwood Hall State Park

It was a postcard perfect day. Sun-filled afternoon skies. Wide, grassy fields. Old oak trees. A precocious four year old and her adorably cuddly little brother. They were ready to play and up for anything I threw at them.

When I photograph families with small children, I always look for space. For things to keep them interested and active, so that we can avoid stiff poses. I’m a person who loves movement in my images. Maybe even a little bit more than light.

Movement of hair…

Movement of hands…

And, always some sort of connection between the family members…

So, this particular day, when I played a few songs that I knew the kids liked, I got all of that movement married with beautiful light in just a few frames. Dancing in the park like kids, with the kids. It was perfect.

Chris is a hobbyist photographer as well, so he was interested in the method to my madness. I kind of geek out over this stuff, so any time someone wants to talk shop for a few minutes, I’m more than game. Particularly if it helps a dad of two such adorable babes feel more confident in his images.
