‘Tis the Season: Professional Holiday Portraits in NYC


It’s that time again… ok, this isn’t an advertisement, but a bit about our holiday sessions. Every year, sometimes in late July, early August, Angela starts planning the holiday sessions. Naturally, she’s asking me which backgrounds I like; naturally, I answer “whatever you like”, which leads to something along the lines of “you’re no help”. Eventually, she chooses the backgrounds that will be used this year, then we pull out props we already own and start shopping for new props. Sometimes, we take a small drive to local furniture store and sometimes we cross 4 state lines to pick up new props. Once all set and done, we start having fun… Yes, even nearly 10-years of studio operations, it is still fun.

This year, we have three sets, here’s the little video clip that we have up on our Instagram page. The In-Front of Christmas store, is a general, neutral background that can be used for both formal and informal pictures. It offers opportunities to capture the child interacting . The fireplace, one of my favorites of all time, is more for formal pictures. It is a big background, easily photographing a family and can be use for formal and informal pictures as well. The cabin, Angela’s favorite, is more about those moments where it’s hot on the outside and warm on the inside. It is great for pajamas, offers the cozy environment and allows us to capture kids being relaxed.

With that in mind, we are blessed & honored to have returning clients and would like to share few images from all three sets from this session.
