Another Park Slope Photo Session

I love me some fashion shows.

Particularly when the ‘models’ are under 10 years old.

And ridiculously adorable.

Like this one.

This session is a perfect example of my work as a ‘lifestyle’ children’s photographer.  Rather than unnaturally posing children in a studio completely foreign to them, I love capturing the details and beauty of their unique worlds, loves and lives they genuinely are at this precise time in their lives.  This keeps everything completely natural, absolutely immediate, and uniquely personal.

By photographing children in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes and known environments, the authenticity of their personalities shine through and landmarking memories are instantly and beautifully created.  And those go straight to the heart.meredith-zinner-photography-children-familymeredith-zinner-photography-children-familymeredith-zinner-photography-children-familymeredith-zinner-photography-children-nycmeredith-zinner-photography-children-nyc-park-slopemeredith-zinner-photography-children-topmeredith-zinner-photography-children-professionalmeredith-zinner-photography-children-top

Brooklyn toddlers!

I cannot believe it’s taken me so long to blog (been so busy shooting, getting ready to introduce new products (!!!!), new site and more) but here is one of the most adorable happiest 1 year old boys I have E V E R met!!!!!!

When I arrived he was still sleeping (as I NEVER recommend waking a sleeping child… i can always walk around the block, hang out, work on my iPhone, etc as we all know a cranky kid never wants to do much) and I absolutely love the range from sleepy ‘dad feeding him a bottle’ to his gorgeous endless exuberance that lasted the entire rest of the session.

I cannot wait to see him when he turns 2!!!!!MeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraitureMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nycMeredithZinnerPhotography_children's portraiture_nyc

Park Slope Toddler Indoor Shoot!!

Who says you can’t shoot gorgeous natural light photographs in the middle of winter?  This MOST DELICIOUS little dumpling was photographed when it was less than 30 degrees F (and ridiculously windy) and you would never know it as their stunning apartment had the most fabulous afternoon light!!!  Hooray all around!!!

And, um, hello cheeks!!!!! And she SHIMMIES too!!!! I nearly ate her.  Oh mah gahds….. LOVED her and am already so looking forward to watching her grow… and of course continue to shimmy  🙂

Brooklyn, NY- Pet Grace Photography Session

The Amazing Emily, a gorgeous wee Yorkshire Terrier.  I received a call from Emily’s owner, saying that her days were numbered and her family realized they had never appropriately documented her in all her splendour.

Granted she may no longer be in her ‘prime,’ but her spirit and charm were immovable and it was crucial she be captured for her family to hold her both in their hearts and minds throughout all the years to come.

I clearly fell head over heels in love with her upon first glance.

Now her family have photos to reflect on her fabulousness forever.

At home in NJ!

I’m often asked if I travel outside of NYC. The answer is YES! And was I ever glad that I do when I met this gorgeous family in New Jersey! They were so wonderful and vivacious AND they have dogs so they had me at ‘is it ok that we have TWO?????’ One could immediately see the joy and love and beauty in all of their faces (parents included) as soon as I walked in their door. It was such a terrific afternoon! (And who doesn’t love newborns in fuzzy hats?!?!?) Hooray!!!

“You are amazing! These are the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen!!!! Thank you so much Meredith. You are so incredibly talented.”- A.F.

Glorious Park Slope Photo session!

mzphotography_childrens_photographers_nyc_brooklyn_UESOk. This girl. OK?
LOOK. AT. THOSE. CHEEKS!!
Those eyes!
That smile!
O.M.G.

She had me at her shy ‘hi’. Then after about 5 minutes, she’d decided that only I was ‘allowed’ to play with her (an honor of honors to behold) and promptly grabbed my hand and marched me to the playground where we swung on swings (well she did all of the swinging), played on the slides and jungle gyms and ‘discovered’ a ‘secret’ flower garden! Oh not to mention crouch crouch crouching and then tip toe tip toe tip toeing to chase any and every pigeon we could find!

Then back to run and cuddle and more playing!

The absolute BEST way I could imagine spending an afternoon in Park Slope! Have I mentioned how lucky i am? Or how much fun we had????
