june was a month packed full of portrait sessions. july + august get so hot + steamy in new york, so it's good planning to do photos while the weather's still warm + not too miserable. being a new mom myself, i cannot believe how much babies change their first year... kristen contacted me wanting to do some family photos with their son, paul... now 8 months old + growing more everyday. she wanted to capture this time before it's gone all too quickly. we walked around their neighborhood of stuyvesant town + down to the east river on a lovely june evening. paul was an absolute charmer to photograph... such a ham for the camera!
