It was a beautiful and quiet morning filled with lots of snuggles, flower picking, toe-dips into the water and shoulder rides. It was such an honor to be the one to give the Rieken family snapshots of sweet moments with their newer addition at the place they now call home.

I’m so excited to share this fun session of Nicole and Jack. Nicole reached out to me and said she wanted to a have a session with just her and her son, Jack. I asked her to talk about Jack before our session and I was told he was sweet and kind, loved ice cream and they love hanging out together. To make the session about their bond and the things they enjoy together, we began their session at The Meadows Frozen Custard in Williamsburg. Nicole shared how much Jack enjoys paying for the ice cream when they go out and those were the small but honest moments she wanted documented.

I always love photographing kids being kids! They go by their own rules, they act more freely and if they're into the environment, they really let go! The Pierre girls were everything and more. It was a bit of a chilly day but they went straight for the water and watching them gave me so much life. Hearing them laugh and almost get taken out by waves yet still have the biggest smile on their faces was refreshing and inspiring.

Our time from beginning to end flowed effortlessly as the children guided the session.  We first hung out in the living room where sweet little princess Liv showed me a book that she was really proud of... as well as her favorite dolls and toys. Then we made our way to her room for more toys, tiaras and dolls and wrapped up our time in baby Julian's nursery.  I enjoyed every minute with the Franz family.
