bourne family: from holland to brooklyn

trust me when i say that pictures are the best souvenir ever! it could be the pregnancy hormones, but man, this shoot just made every part of me tingly with joy and love and excitement. whether you're living in the city or visiting the city, i want to capture it all- let's meet up!! i also want to add that one of the best parts of these sessions together is that the pressure is off. no holiday card obligations. no perfect outfit searches. no forced poses or meaningless locations. it's about your family- your time, your interactions, your reactions, and your experiences together. it's FUN.

yana & her family were visiting nyc from holland, and i was thrilled when they reached out and asked to meet up in brooklyn, letting me tag along as they experienced a little part of new york city. clearly, they're BEAUTIFUL, but my gosh, they were the absolute kindest, most loving, genuine family. complimentary and gentle, and incredibly hilarious (in both their interactions with each other and with me).
