a family grows in brooklyn | park slope lifestyle photography

My recent trip back to New York was a hectic one—but knowing that I would cap off my four-day visit with a session with Katie and her family in Park Slope made the whole solo excursion that much sweeter.

I first met this incredible mom of three (going on four this fall!) last year at a photography workshop—Katie hosted us all for the day in her beautiful home, and her gorgeous crew volunteered as our models for a live shoot. After a long day of learning and conversing and bonding, we really hit it off over tacos and beer and stayed in touch leading up to our move to LA. And the days when we didn't meet for coffee or text or email, I drooled over each and every candid yet perfectly composed post on her Instagram feed (which I highly recommend you follow if you don't already). I've been a fan of Katie from the moment I walked into her home, and her warmth, incredible eye, and gift for motherhood make her one of the most magnetic women I know.

This is all to say that it was a complete delight to have the chance to come back to New York and photograph her family during this incredibly special time as she awaits the arrival of baby number four. Biggest hugs and much love to you, Katie—I can't wait to meet yet another incredible little human you've created.
