christmas eve family photos + a giveaway! [closed]

see MORE


when katherine and luke, of the soon to be max and friends, reached out to us last fall about possibly taking some family photographs over the holidays, i got really excited. katherine and luke have such a special way of documenting life through their lenses.  since they both had cameras, they ended up capturing two perspectives of the same moment but with different details or unique emotions.  we are so thankful they made time for us on their holiday visit to nyc!

we met up with the couple at madison square park and spent an hour or two playing together and eating burgers and fries before heading home to warm up and prepare for our christmas eve traditions! it was a great afternoon. here are a few of my favorite images…

ps. details on a giveaway with katherine and luke at the bottom of this post!

0104 031506 05 0917 07211308 12 katherine and luke are giving away two portrait sessions to two lucky readers, too! the only glitch is they are los angeles california based.  so one portrait session will go to a reader who is in the LA area, and the other to a reader in the NYC area who has availability this coming october (nyc reader must be available oct 1-3 or 5-6 2014.)  i know these locations exclude many, and i try to make sure anything we share is accessible to all, but i still thought it might be worth a shot for a few of you! please specify in your comment if you will be in the LA area this coming year or if you are in new york city area and available during the dates given above in october.

good luck! and thanks again to katherine and luke! we love these images so much.
