Benjamin–High Line–New York, NY

I met Benjamin and his parents on a gorgeous Friday morning at the famed High Line, an awesome elevated park located on the West Side of Manhattan.  Ben’s mom is an old soccer/hockey/lax teammate of mine from Loomis Chaffee, and it was fun to catch up and meet her little one.  The High Line is located on an historic freight rail line that ran from 34th Street to Spring Street until the 1960’s.  Recently saved from impending demolition, it was re-purposed as a public park which opened in 2009.  It has since expanded northward in stages, adding unique features including waterscapes, sun decks, open lawns, contemporary bird houses, and a funky amphitheater overlooking 10th Avenue.  Ben will be 2 in August and loved to explore all of these features during our shoot…so much so that we all ran after him, daring him to slow down and smile!  We didn’t get the perfect smile, but we did capture his fun spirit and some cute candids.  Check out a slideshow of our shoot to see what fun we had with water and bubbles.  We ended our session with a few photos on their beautiful stoop in Chelsea.  Ben, Jo, and Ted, it was so fun to spend the morning with you and I can’t wait to see where your little explorer takes us next!
