Wanted to try a cinemagraph for the very first time and Anton seemed to be the perfect subject for that
We placed him on the backdrop and he started his usual crawling, push-ups and swinging standing on all fours But then he suddenly relaxed and took this painterly modelling pose. We were quite stunned as he was quietly smiling at us and gently playing with his hand.
Being a commercial photographer specializing in family and children photography one could meet newborns on almost daily basis. But… Having your own child born is arguably always an extraordinary event! And so I do understand all the parents wanting to get their newborns photographed. Because believe it or not you have only about 10 days for that. It is that short!
It was a windy day on Fire Island and you would want to fly against that wind, I’m quite sure. It was real fun! I clearly remembered myself being a boy and doing the same Unfortunately I didn’t have ocean around.
It was a family portrait session in out local beautiful Juniper Valley Park in the beginning of November. I was caught by autumn colors and remembered my old favorite photo book by great Czech photographer Jan Saudek. He used there a technique by hand painting his B&W photographs in such a vibrant and rich, saturated colors. The book was titled “LOVE’.
So this particular picture reminds me of that book every time I look at it.
We definitely had great time together walking and playing along most scenic spots of Central Park on that gorgeous autumn day.
It’s getting to be that time of year again – that’s how Allison started her email asking when we can do another photosession with her family. I’m honored – it’s the 3rd year in a row I photograph this lovely family! I feel like I’m part of it, at least for those 2 hours we spend together 😉 And then I look through the images choosing the best for them and for my portfolio and recall how great they are.
First time we did a session when Alex was about 10 months yet and now he is almost 3 years old. They have relocated from Bronxville NY to New Jersey last year and they also got a new member of the family – furry Chelsea very playful and funny.
So we started to shoot around their new home in the backyard and then moved inside:
After that we drove to nearest park to get beautiful autumn colors in the pictures and to have fun in general
I admire Allison and James – they seem to me one of the greatest couple parents I knew – they are always caring of the family. And it is really easy to photograph them because there is no need for posing – I just observe and capture their happiness and love.
It was first time being in NYC for Carlo, but 4th for Eleonora. I was hired to photograph this beautiful couple around Manhattan’s landmarks.
The day we scheduled the photoshoot weather was quite tricky and nasty so we had to push it for another day. I saw that Carlo was kind of upset and confused because of that and I didn’t see the reason for that. I thought it’s not a big deal, we always depend on weather.
While we were walking to Central Park next day Carlo explained to me that actually he made a proposal yesterday! Damn, I missed this moment, now I got it! But they were so obviously in love, kissing all the time so I think I didn’t miss too much after all 😉
Another family photography session in Central Park on lovely summer day with a beautiful princess Aidan and her parents Melissa and Rob.
Need to admit she was extremely shy and we had difficulties to get her in front of camera But we played and did let her play her game 😉
As the result I believe we got plenty of catching images of this great family.
I photographed again a lovely family of Alex, Allison and James. It’s always great to know that your clients trust you, believe in you and ask you to save their memories in photographs once more.
Another family portraiture on-location photography session with great family of Noah, Sean, Ariane, Barry and David.
Gantry Park in Long Island City with the great view to Manhattan. They expanded park greatly and put a lot of cool things there. I just love this place even more!
