Fall is finally here!! With cooler temperatures and colorful foliage, here are some of our favorite locations for capturing holiday portraits!
Central Park: Located in the heart of Manhattan, Central Park offers a beautiful blend of natural settings uptown and cityscape backdrops downtown. People tend to spend more time indoors and holiday shopping in the Fall months, which means the park is far less crowded than usual. Not to mention, earlier sunset times means happier babies (who aren’t out past their bedtime) and amazing photos!! Large open fields allow children to roam free and act like the silly kids they are! We love to also incorporate iconic settings such as Bethesda Fountain and The Mall. For visiting client who wish to capture the NYC cityscapes and Fall foliage, we always recommend Sheep Meadow for the best of both worlds!
Gantry Plaza Park: Located just across the bridge from Midtown Manhattan, Gantry Plaza Park is a hidden gem! It’s far less crowded than Central Park, and offers lovely boardwalk settings with modern benches and stunning views of the NYC skyline. We lovephovtographing here at golden hour for the most beautiful glow, and even once the sun goes down as all the lights come on in the Chrysler and Empire State buildings!
Brooklyn Bridge Park: Shooting in the trendy neighborhood of Dumbo Brooklyn is always a fun adventure. Perfect for residents of Lower Manhattan, the beautiful skyline views are the perfect backdrop for family portraits. The beautifully restored Jane’s Carousel is always a favorite amounts children of all ages. As an added bonus, there are epic views of both the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge to add some fun NYC flair to portraits!
Coney Island: The creative possibilities here are endless! You have the boardwalk, the amusement park, the beach, and all the fun surrounding areas! Coney Island sessions are wonderful for older children who can get playful with a giant lollipop, cotton candy or even a New York classic Nathan’s hotdog! Coney Island has so many fun and colorful settings to really make your session unique!
