The email was extremely promising that hit my inbox from Robin + Renee, a married photographer couple from Arizona: "We are looking to bring our kiddos out to NYC for a week in July. We have been searching high and low for a photographer with your style... We love the edgy, urban, grit vibe of your street photography and are hoping you’d be able to plop our family right down in the middle of it!"
Street + family?! HECK YES. What I didn't expect was it would turn out to be one of my most treasured sessions I have ever shot. When you shoot other photographers and their family it's nerve-wracking but MAN did they let me do my thing.
From Grand Central, to Time Square, all the way downtown to Chinatown/Little Italy (via subway of course!) we got a true slice of NYC life captured for their rad family forever.
Come, experience NYC with them!
(NOTE: the last shot was THE last shot I took. I was in awe of how much love and closeness there is in this family, to the point there was not one single disagreement that took place. I was thinking 'dang, I only have two kids and this is so not how it would go down.' And then, a gelato disagreement occurred and as one Mom got into it a bit with the daughter, the other Mom did exactly what we all feel when a little drama unfolds. Ahhhhh, yes. Reality. Best part? The Moms adore and APPRECIATE this shot and I'm pretty much betting it makes their wall!!!)
