The Pooran Family: A Morning at Home | Long Island Family Photographer

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting this family for the first time. This in-home session was a Christmas gift for mom, who was looking forward to being in the frame with her kiddos.

I documented a lovely, relaxed Saturday morning at their home - playing, drawing and eating lunch. It was wonderful to talk about the power of "story" with mom and dad over lunch - about photographs that have meaning, rather than just being pretty pictures.

It is so affirming to me when I meet other families who "get" what I do, and recognize and understand the significance of family documentary photography.

I hope this snapshot of their life at present proves to be a treasure in the years to come, when cribs and crayons and high chairs are a thing of the past.
