I am so grateful that the Cho family took a risk hiring me three years ago to shoot their first family portrait. I'll never forget that shoot, in an apple orchard in central New Jersey.
Once the extended family heard of the shoot, everyone wanted to be a part of this special day: aunts and uncles, cousins, boyfriends, grandparents and great grandparents. It was a bit overwhelming for me because not only was it the first shoot for the Cho's, it was my very first shoot too!
That was three years ago. Last year, we took pictures in Brooklyn Heights, New York.
This year we met up in Chinatown, New York. I love everything about Chinatown and this location was the perfect spot to capture some very special family moments.
I'll write more about multi-generation pictures in another post, but I just have to say, having 4 generations eager and willing to take part year after year is a gift. These pictures will be here long after our loved ones no longer are and they will be powerful reminders of the love shared this side of heaven.
