The City :: New Jersey Family Photography
Every year I make the same trek east. I leave the relatively quiet life of Indiana and head to New Jersey to hang with my brothers and their families and to see the rest of the relatives. My mother had been here in Indiana for seven years, but now that our kids are grown and we are traveling back and forth to our home in Arizona, we packed her up last fall and moved her back to New Jersey. So besides my brothers, nieces and nephews, my momma is also there. Not to mention really amazing pizza!!
The beauty of growing up in northern New Jersey, and there is a HUGE distinction between north, central and south Jersey, is its proximity to New York City. The Big Apple. Although if you’re from New Jersey we just refer to it as “The City”. You would never say, “we’re going to visit the Big Apple”…you’re just going “into the city”. Very similar to saying, “I’m going down the shore”:-) This summer we’ll have a few extra people along for the ride as my kids bring their girlfriends along. Gone are the days worrying if we are doing too much walking around the city…we’ll have a blast exploring with a bunch of 20 year olds!!
Now for the good stuff!! I would love to incorporate 2-3 family sessions in the city during our time out East. We’ll be heading out on July 25th and heading back home on August 1st. If you would like to meet in the city for a few hours and have a fun “city session” it would be a blast! I’m putting together an awesome package of an album and digital images. If interested, shoot me an email…you can find my email link at the bottom of the post. This entire session that I did with my brother’s family a few years ago was completed in about an hour, in a two block radius of the Flatiron Building. Of course there is always Central Park, Times Square, Battery Park, The Brooklyn Bridge….you get the picture (pun intended!) There are so many places to shoot in the greatest city on Earth!
Hope to see you in the city!!
