A Winter In-Home Session | Garden City Family Photographer

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of meeting and photographing the Sweeney Family in their home in nearby Garden City. Mom Vera writes a popular blog called Lady and the Blog, and unbeknownst to me (until this session, of course!) she and her family live just ten minutes or so from me!

I spent the morning with them just a few weeks after Christmas, and they shared some of their favorite winter in-home activities with me: coloring, playing board games, making cookies and eating lunch as a family.

We had fun discussing some of our favorite local spots (we are both so excited to now have a Stew Leonard's nearby!) and Vera's husband Bill told me where to get the best local lobster roll (The Rex - which I did visit just a week or so after their session and can confirm: the lobster roll is the bomb!). 

I also loved hearing all about daughter Natalie's love of musical theater. She had just been to see "Wicked" and had plans to see "Phantom of the Opera" the week following our session. A girl after my own heart!

Thank you to the Sweeney's for a wonderful morning!

Here's a little peek at their winter in-home session:
