Family photos are a great way to capture important fleeting memories of your loved ones. However, in a energetic city like New York, you might wonder how you can capture great shots and also ensure your child’s safety. If you are based in Brooklyn, you have a lot of parks and more open spaces for your toddlers to run freely, especially if it’s summer! Instead of posing your family in front of a seamless backdrop (as you may have to do in the winter months), why not hire a family photographer to capture your family out and about in your hood before the weather gets cold! Here are just a few of the picturesque moments that could help you hold on to this time of the year.
Why Schedule a Photo Session With a Family Photographer
1. Capture the Summer Vibe
Most likely, you've been using the warm weather and beautiful days to your advantage and getting outside more often. This increase in physical activity and natural sunlight is a positive influence on your family’s health and happiness! Scheduling a family photoshoot will ensure the summer vibes are remembered.
2. Preserve Memories
Summertime in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is not short on activities. Your family will likely be hopping from rooftop barbecues to brownstone stoops, to hanging out at the Lefrak splash pad in Prospect Park Park, playgrounds and many other activities that let you get out and enjoy the neighborhood. Have a family photographer tag along to capture a day in your life when you know everyone will be naturally happy and having a good time.
3. Everything Is in Bloom
If you live near Prospect Park or the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, take advantage of the beautiful natural backdrops available this time of the year. You can take photos near most exhibits and floral designs at any point with striking results. However, keep in mind that the rose garden is only open until October and the water lilies and lotuses bloom until September.
4. The Weather Is Idyllic
Brooklyn is filled with historic neighborhoods, a mix of cultures and brownstone architecture. It is the perfect scenery for a family photoshoot, and summer improves your chances for lush surroundings and warm temperatures. It’s definitely shorts weather, and often into September, so get to your nicest summery dress, and your kid’s favorite t-shirts for a fun and beautiful family shoot!
