Elizabeth found me on Instagram and asked if I’d be up for a family session in Williamsburg for her 8 month-old, her baby daddy and herself. “We’ll be the heavily tattooed couple with a baby… Can’t miss us”. Hmm, yes please!
She told me she liked skyline views, so we opted for East River State Park at sunset. Domino Park is right next to it and its fun colors make it a cool location for a family session in Williamsburg, too. Her boyfriend Eddy is a fire fighter and despite Elizabeth’s efforts, he did not wear his uniform during the photoshoot (Haha. Go figure^^)
Right when we met I could tell they were laid back people and that we would get along great. And their little Sebastian is the sweetest! (I know, I know – cue a Parks and Recs joke here). This handsome guy likes to play peekaboo which got me some pretty adorable smiles and laughs. His one little curl on the side of his head is also the cutest thing! It made me die when editing the photos!
We walked by the water, sit down on the grass, twirled, played, and the session just flew by. Really for a family shoot you want to have as much movement as possible and not necessarily accumulate “poses”. Candid little moments make the best photos anyways!
