No matter how much I love the south or long to live at the beach, I was a raised a city girl through and through. Black fabric wins out over bows or monograms any day of the week. When I saw the Batistas cutting across the park on the day of our fall photo shoot, I squealed when I saw them walking my way dressed almost entirely in black. A family after my own heart. So perfectly styled. So perfectly NY. Home, this is home.
It’s not every day I get to shoot in NY, so I was beyond excited when my childhood friend and neighbor, Amanda, mentioned she was interested in doing a family shoot together while I was in town. Amanda radiates a grace and beauty that is truly exquisite, always has, and well, to get the chance to photograph her and her adorable little family was an absolute dream. We had the best time together in Central Park last month, and though I live nowhere near her anymore, I’m already scheming ways to get her sweet little family back in front of my lens on future trips. World, meet the Batistas. You’re welcome. xoxo
