To begin with – It is so many times that I have been to Prospect Park. In fact this is one of the reason I moved in to the area. Morning runs, weekend biking, occasional bbq-ing with friends. The Prospect Park is a landscape mastery in every pice. Created in 1867 has all the improvements after the Central Park was done. With that said you can find all you wish for in Prospect Park. It is ideal for family photo session. I have been emphasizing the importance of the different backdrops for photos and this park has it all within close proximities.
With this in mind you can take photos with the boathouse in a background and move to the park through the tunel. Nearby The Ravine area will do best as little forest with paths to hike and stone bridge in case you would look for more nature surrounding. Obviously another great place is The Donald And Barbara Zucker Natural Exploration Area. Your kids can to play and explore and you gone to have great action family photos? Believe me – I can’t say enough of how I think the Park is versatile and yet underestimated among photographers in New York is Prospect Park. For even more spots check out the map
It is a great time every time. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Family photo session has it’s own rights – I have learnt it fast. You can plan all you want but at the end everything will happen with it’s own time. That is the beauty of it. Children will show you where they want to go and what is most important for them at the time. Your only job is to setup the backdrop for the family, give them some very general directions and wait ready to shoot. The whole situation will unfold it’s mood and little story right before your lens. I took my time to plan this family session in Prospect Park I also let my self go of any time slots or restrains. Therefore it was a happy time with thees three – fourth to come soon. I had a great time watching parental love and care. The little boy – no matter the drizzle – just wanted to be with his parents and play the whole time.
Now I know that weddings is one of the time I meet happy people in the best time of their life. Photographing family and watching the happy moments to arrive, seeing smiles and affection is where I want to be. In fact I will be happy to do more and more of photo sessions like this one. I hope to see you guys soon. Probably for a baby session first, then for a family session again. I will be very happy to photograph this family and wacht it grow. I have already heard form you that you are wish to take some photos during snowy winter. If your are plan to be close to Prospect Park or any where else in New York area reach out to me. Let your family have great photos and moments to remember. Make sure to talk to me prior to the photoshoot will talk over what is most important to you so we can have best result for the time spent.
