Here are some images from A&J’s winter engagement portrait session in New York City’s Central Park.
After days of relentless, wintery weather, A&J and I were looking forward to mild, mid-60s temperatures for our engagement portrait session in Central Park. Unfortunately, the seasons had one more switcharoo in store for us and greeted us with one of the coldest, windiest days of the year. Brr!
We began our afternoon at Bethesda Fountain before making our way under the bridges toward the Conservatory Water. After that, A&J bundled up and snuggled to stay warm near the Turtle Pond and Belvedere Castle. As we passed by the swings, A&J laughed and told me how they had recently requested old photos from their parents and how, coincidentally, each set of parents delivered photos of the kids on swings. Naturally, I had to stick them on the swing set as adults. 🙂
As we began feeling like frostbite was a very real possibility (holding a 10-pound metal camera in sub-freezing temps is akin to the tongue-stuck-to-pole scene in “A Christmas Story”), we ended our day with a beautiful sunset over the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. It was a fitting conclusion, given that A&J live mere blocks away and run along the trail each morning.
