Central Park Family Photos by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

New_York_NYC_Family_Photography-13.jpg

A cold but fun New York family photos in Central Park. The Yedlowski family from Rhode Island wanted memories of their visit to NYC and what better way to photograph them but in Central Park. We first stopped by Bethesda Terrace so the kids can play with the snow, addition to getting classic photography by the terrace arches. We then walked through Bethesda Terrace to walk down Literary Walk and Amphitheater. New York City has so much beautiful areas to take photos, even in the coldest of days. Enjoy the rest of the winter everyone!

New York City Newborn Photography by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

New_York_NYC_Newborn_Photos_Photography-8.jpg

Beautiful Ava, with her brother and loving parents, was welcomed to the Upper West Side, and there's no better way to commemorate her arrival than with a New York City newborn photography session in their home. Yes, I do travel to the family's home for newborn sessions (anywhere in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Tri-State area including Long Island), which is part of the service paid as part of the newborn package. With various backdrops and props to choose from, we photographed Ava along with her family. Of course the young lady was exhausted and had to be fed in the middle of her session. Newborns are the boss after all and what they say, or don't say, goes! Newborn photography isn't just about the props, but capturing the small details of the baby. They are tiny only for so long so getting photos of their fingers, toes, is also important.

Marie & Don - Central Park In-Love Couple's Photography

DonMarie_NYC_CentralPark_Photo_Session-Ideas-Couples_002.jpg

When couples are in love, it just shows through the camera's lens. The way a couple can just be together and forget all about the world is just truly magical, and Marie and Don can teach us all a few lessons in love. They're both from Canada, but NYC and Central Park has a special meaning for them. Don surprised Marie with a trip to New York City when they first started dating. Marie had always wanted to go to NYC and experience what it had to offer so when they can they visit the city. It's hard to get away at times especially when you're running a school back in Canada, but love is patient, love is kind...and love will always be there when it's true as it patiently waits for a weekend of fun to just celebrate life. This couple's in-love NYC photography session was actually a gift for Don, who tends to be behind the camera so there isn't a lot of pictures of them together....what a great gift! I definitely feel the same way! :-) I just enjoyed this session so much and was very glad and thankfully blessed another wonderful client referred Marie and Don to me. To meet them and other couples, enjoying their company, learning their story, and finding out more about how they met and what their life is like definitely makes a full day's work worthwhile. It doesn't even make it feel like work, just all of us strolling through Central Park taking photographs by Bethesda Fountain and Bow Bridge and having fun on a beautiful winters day!  They were actually back in NYC this past Valentine's Day and in a few weeks they're off to Barbados to celebrate their anniversary...Don proposed to Marie at the Crane Resort! Yes, for those that has been following my blog, I was just there shooting a destination wedding...what a small world! Thank you Marie and Don for a fabulous photography session!

Brooklyn NY Maternity Session & Newborn Photography by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Brooklyn__New_York_Maternity_PHotography_Ideas_0007.jpg

Congratulations to Pauline and Simeone! They had their gorgeous baby girl, Virginie, and she was such a sweetheart to photograph. I met Pauline on the N train from Sunset Park in Brooklyn, NY heading into the city. She turned to me and ask if I was a photographer. I was carrying gear and looking at images on my Canon Mark III. After I confirmed she smiled and happily said she was pregnant! As you can see, Pauline is gorgeous and tiny and she did not look pregnant at all! We started talking and she hired me to do her NYC maternity photography session in her Victorian home in Brooklyn, New York. We planned on shooting their baby's Brooklyn NY newborn photography session as well. At the time they didn't know if they were having a boy or a girl. On July 2, 2012, Virginie was born! She is such a beautiful angel and was such a good girl. She loved the attention and was comfortable with all the attention. Below are a few images from the maternity and newborn session. Congratulations once again! I am so happy I took that train in that moment since I met such a wonderful couple and gorgeous little girl as a result. Hope everyone enjoys the images!

Savannah, Joseph, Sabrina & Sophia's Children Photo Session - Brooklyn, NY

These children are just too remarkable for words! Joanna, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your children! They are beautiful, sweet, and very precious and definitely one of the best children photography session I have done! We traveled to my old neighborhood by Gravesend in Brooklyn, NY. Specifically we had the session in Marine Park and the location was perfect for what Joanna envisioned. Loved how each of the children's outfits were chosen and everyone was definitely stylish. Just look at each of them! If you ask me which picture is my favorite, I honestly cannot choose. I love them all and I <3 these kids! Here's a sneak peak at their session:

New York City Maternity Photography - Central Park

Recently did a New York Maternity photo session with Vincent and Jeryl who is expecting any day now! We went to Central Park with just J and V and a red balloon...and me...and my camera which is basically my baby...and hundreds of others roaming Central Park enjoying the gorgeous day.Congratulations to the soon-to-be mommy and daddy! Had a great time and the weather cooperated even on a February. The sun was shining and the red balloon had a mind of it's own...it could be mimicking how baby is feeling inside mommy's tummy...but it could just be the red balloon trying to grab all the attention. In any case, the theme V + J were going for worked out pretty well. Caught some great pictures, along with blue skies, really just equalled many great shots. We started off in the upper east side in front of the Alice and Wonderland statue...which by the way is crawling with kids after 11 AM so if you want to get some shots get there earlier! I always forget that statue is huge and if I wasn't working I'd be climbing the statue and playing with the Mad Hatter and White Rabbit with the kids...Where was I? Oh yes, get there early! My fault...weekend and forgot trains do not like to run on weekends. Sigh. In any case, walked by the boathouse and Bethesda Fountain and along the way took some frame pictures and of course the Red Balloon..maybe we'll call him "RB".... took center stage everywhere we went in Central Park. "RB" really created the mood and helped form the pictures. Of course, V + J are just such a cute couple that you can't help but fall in love with them and wish them all the best when their new bundle of joy arrives! THis reminds me, I need to get Jeryl's advice since this lovely woman still has her figure and you couldn't even tell she is pregnant if you weren't looking straight at her! I just wish the power above will grant me the same fortune. Enough about me, hope everyone enjoys these pictures.  I'll post them also on my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/angelicacriscuolophotography. Thanks Vincent and Jeryl for allowing me to capture your maternity photography session! Too bad no one wanted to get "RB" and take him for a walk after our use...but it was enjoyable saying goodbye to him.

 

 

Portraits Are More Than Paper - Why photographs are very important and lasts forever....

Today I read a post by Jeanine Thurston, re-posted by so many photographers and non-photographers alike, and the letter that created the post stirred old memories that I too had to post it: http://fototails.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/a-letter-on-my-doorstep-portraits-are-more-than-paper/ After reading the letter, I cannot help but feel this person's regret of not understanding how pictures are so much more lasting than "trivial" items. Portraits and photographs  are more than a piece of paper, since it helps memorialize an event or a person or a special memory of a newborn being born or children growing up with families, a wedding, and more. From time to time I do get the "oh no! there she is again!" when I take out my camera and start photographing family and friends when we're together privately or out so I can capture those memories.  Many say their memories are in their mind and do not need photographs or videos of an event, but for me, personally, I love having a tangible visual of an event or memory with my husband, family and friends. Why do I do it? I do it because I know memories are fleeting. Getting older, my memory is not what it was years ago...and that is scary. How many times have we told ourselves I'll remember this moment forever...but later stumble upon a picture (maybe years or weeks later) taken by someone else and you truly forgot that moment occurred? I LOVE going through my pictures from time to time and remembering time spent with those I love. I have folders of digital images going back from 1999 with a miscellaneous folder where I added scanned images of older paper photographs.

Maybe some think that going overboard...and some may think its not...but each of us must do what feels right and capturing memories the way I know how feels the right way. I also take pictures because I know often time pictures are all we may have left of someone one day. A sad thought but true...and it was true for Karen L. who wrote the letter. Her letter has made this past hour an emotional roller coaster, leaving people wondering why I look like I've been crying...so here I am pretending to have a cold, but in reality I'm remembering the feeling of not having that picture I wanted and needed of someone who suddenly passed on. When my father passed away in 2007, I was creating a memorial board of him, and realized that the last picture I took with him and I alone was taken...well I couldn't find one. Honestly the last good one (not blurry or anything else) was from 2001 when I graduated college. There was one picture from my birthday party my dad threw for me at his house in 2005 that had me, him and my siblings together, and I had to cut out my siblings so I can frame that picture of me and my dad in my apartment. The picture was also blurry, but it was all I had standing next to him. Other pictures before he passed was of me taking the picture, or a group picture. Just remembering that realization made me panic. This was the eve of my father's wake and I'm scrambling to find pictures of my dad and me and I couldn't find a one.

Photographs of any event or a portrait of your family or pictures with friends are something that should not be taken for granted. For many they are not just a want or a need, but a priceless memory that can be passed on. If you haven't read Karen L's letter, read on: http://fototails.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/a-letter-on-my-doorstep-portraits-are-more-than-paper/

Thank you Jeanine for posting this letter. Karen L. and many more are in my prayers.

Happy New Year! from Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Ng Family Session - Planting Fields Arboretum - by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Meet the Ng Family!!! We went to Planting Fields Arboretum, which was definitely a great location to take family pictures in Long Island. The place was beautiful and the Ng's enjoyed the surroundings, creating a perfect backdrop and relaxing atmosphere to take these pictures. Such a loving family and Justin and Jaiden are lucky to have amazing parents such as Tina and Steve.
