Winter wonderland romance

Rob proposed to Karyn in a very romantic setting while they were traveling in Ireland during springtime.  We tried to find an equally beautiful setting in New York City for their engagement portraits.  Mother Nature was on our side when we got the first lovely snow of the season and transformed Central Park into a romantic winter wonderland for the engagement session.

We visited some of the landmarks of the park such as the Belvedere Castle, the Bow Bridge and the Bethesda Fountain for romantic backdrops.  Karyn and Rob were such troopers during the session even though we were all soaked by the end.  Had some fun throwing some snow balls, we spotted some wild life and some cute snowmen.

Congratulations to Karyn and Rob!!

Fall family portraits in Fort Tryon Park, New York City

I have met up with Esther, Josh and Toby on a beautiful autumn day in Fort Tryon Park in Manhattan for their fall family portraits.

We had a great time exploring Fort Tryon Park, its arches and stone walls and peaceful paths.

Fort Tryon Park is one of Manhattan’s highest point and offers stunning views on the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge and the New Jersey Palisades.

The 50 feet high arches, called the Billings Arcade used to be the original driveway to the Billings mansion and estate.  Unfortunately the mansion burned down almost a hundred years ago.

Fort Tryon Park is now the home to the Cloisters museum and the New Leaf restaurant.  One of the highlights of Fort Tryon Park, is, the 3 acre heather garden.

Central Park family portraits – Manhattan, New York City

Fall is one of the best seasons to photograph families in Central Park.  The colors and the weather is wonderful and the photographs make perfect holiday gifts and holiday photo cards to send out.  We used beautiful locations such as the Bow Bridge, Strawberry Fields and the Lake as the backdrops for the portraits.  Here are some of my favorite images of the families I have had the fun photographing.

Springtime cherry blossom portraits – Central Park, New York City

Springtime and cherry blossoms are my favorite time of the year.  I have been photographing my daughter with the cherry blossoms since she was born.

This spring we found a beautiful spot in Central Park where several cherry trees created a beautiful, enchanted pink haven.  Emily had a lovely time collecting the pink petals from the ground, walking barefoot on a soft pink carpet made of petals and dancing, twirling among the cherry trees.

Cherry blossom festivals or as the Japanese call them Sakura festivals are popular in New York City and around the world.  I have visited the Brooklyn Botanic Garden many times in the past to enjoy the cherry blossom season.

Many cherry trees have a short window of time when they are in full bloom and I am happy I was able to enjoy them this year at their peak in Central Park, New York City.
