South Street Seaport: New York, NY: Jen & Dan's Family Session

One of the best parts of working with an amazing family like Jen & Dan’s over the course of many years, is that not only do we really get to know them but we also get to explore with them. We have photographed them in Central Park (returning to the spot where Dan proposed for a maternity session with their first son), in Connecticut during the snow when Jen was pregnant with their second son, in their neighborhood in TriBeCa on the cobblestone streets and with their extended family so multiple generations could be captured at once. We always know a session with Jen & Dan is going to be a good time because spending time with them (with or without a camera in hand) always is too.

This past October, Jen suggested one of her favorite spots in New York for their session: South Street Seaport. With the large ships, distinct streets and views of Brooklyn Bridge it was the perfect spot to display the boy’s personalities and capture the essence of what it looks like to be a young family in New York.
