samson’s first trip to the city.

on monday, we took a quick day trip up to new york city as a family. it was samson’s first time and i think he liked it. ;) i had forgotten just how easy it can feel to travel with a newborn over a toddler. all they wanna do is sleeeeep. eleanor on the other hand? if she wasn’t chasing after the 789th dog she spotted, she was walking up to complete strangers trying to take their hand and walk off with them… a little too friendly that one. we have some work to do there.
it was great to be back in the city for a few hours. see a few good friends. eat some good food and enjoy the city as a family of four. new york, we love you. until next time….

  2. Saskia

    Lovely family!

  3. Aw, I love these joyful photos. There's nothing quite like showing your new baby the city (or showing the city your new baby), is there.

  4. Aww!! This post just melted my heart! LOVE.

    I love the way Samson is staring at all the buildings around him (or maybe he is just looking at you adoringly). I think NYC would be a very exciting place for a newborn with all the lights.

    Your photos are gorgeous!

  7. Tawny

    Yes, lovely as always!

    Where did you buy your hat? It's exactly what I've been looking for.

  8. thanks everyone!

    hat is from jcrew from a few years ago and shirt is from madewell.


  9. Can I ask where you got your hat? It's perfect.
    Sweet, sweet family.

    Apart from all the oh-my-gof-your-kids-and-your-whole-family-are-so-adorable (which is self-evident): I love your shirt, the hat and the way you wear your hair!

  14. The biggest reason I visit your blog daily is because of your stunning photos.. goodness, girl, you know how to work that camera (both behind it and in front of it!) I'm smitten with your photo processing.. I'm wondering if you ever divulge your editing secrets (actions you love, etc?)? If so, please shoot me an email and fill me in! :) [email protected]. I know you're likely crazy busy, so obviously no pressure if you can't or don't want to, but if you do, I would be over the moon!

    (also, I love love love that hat/shirt combo. And your freckles. That is all :)


  15. I'd love to know where you got your hat…
