back in november, katie rain (who took these fun photos of us in central park over the summer) was in town so we got together to snap a few family photos for our family’s christmas card! the weather was amazing and warm that day (this winter, you guys! it’s so backwards!) so i felt like we should really take advantage and head someplace fun, like the brooklyn bridge. only problem was, i didn’t calculate how windy it’d be in the middle of the bridge compared to everywhere else in the city. it was crazy windy! i feel like the morning couldn’t have been more of a disaster in so many ways…. horrible wind, which means my hair was having a super horrible day) plus a moment where conrad accidentally poked my eye and i couldn’t open in for like ten minutes in the middle of shooting (it was truly hilarious!) and trying to be respectful of others walking or biking or also taking photos on the bridge was just a lot! along with trying to get a shot with all 5 of us looking decent. katie is the best though, and while i left the shoot certain we didn’t get a single shot, i was blown away with what she sent over. she’s amazing. thank you so so much, katie!
a few of my favorites below…
taking a minute for a banana break! my kids are banana monsters!
samson wanted superman in our family photos, so he brought him and placed him in his coat pocket! haha!
all of these faces here crack me up so much! ah! i love my people like crazy.
thanks again to katie rain for taking these photos for us! christmas card season is my absolute favorite! ps. if you’re in new york city, katie will be back in april if you want to book a session. she’s the greatest and makes photos so easy breezy with kiddos just letting us be us and do our thing and capturing it so candidly. we love her.
PS. my jacket is a vintage find. pink blouse from reiss (old). and skirt from maje. shoes from anthropologie (also old, but they do have a few similar styles.) eleanor’s sweater is from wunway kids, tutu skirt from crewcuts. samson’s blazer also from crewcuts and saddle shoes from here. conrad’s button down from zara.
