family christmas card photos!

see MORE


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!

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.

    I’m truly impressed that there aren’t 1.2 billion people on the bridge taking selfies behind you. Did you go super early in the morning?

    To run rings round someone or like we in Germany say put someone in the pocket (Jemanden in die Tasche stecken. :)
    Lovely pictures.

  12. Fabulous fun filled photos. Made me smile and want to drag my kids and husband from Scotland to New York in April for a photoshoot.

  13. Haha my goodness how much I love these! You would never tell from those pictures how your perception of the shoot went but I love that you’re always so open and honest about things! My favourite is the third picture, the one with all of you and where Samson is pulling a funny face.

    Thanks again for sharing! <3
