Central Park Children's Portraits | Mia

Mia is vivacious 5 year old who is so curious about the world it made my heart ache. We all know how much I love kids and sharing a "play date" as she put it, together at the Harlem Meer was a lot of fun. She's very comfortable in front of the camera, obviously, just look at her images! Mia's recently been signed to Wilhelmina so I don't think this is the last you'll see of her. 

Can you guess which face is Mia's "thinking face?!"

Kissena Park Family Portraits | The Kormos Family

After a little hop skip and jump over to Queens, with just a minor hiccup in my faulty travel, I was able to meet and shoot the Kormos family. I am so flattered that they didn't mention beforehand that Dad was, himself, a Children and Family Portrait Photographer, otherwise I may have been too intimidated! 

Kissena Park is beautiful and scenic especially on a crisp, summer evening. The Kormos brood is beautiful, especially Lilly, who was making us all work very hard for a smile. It was all worth it because we got one!

Faces of Harlem: Austin | Harlem Portrait Photographer

Austin is "fun, fresh, and fit," or so that's how he described himself to me during our time together. I'm a believer! Also referred to Faces of Harlem by Christina (and Earnest), he is a social media mogul on the rise and has been in and out of Harlem since his early days of college at Columbia University. You can see more, including slide shows at Faces of Harlem's new home, Please email me at ilene {dot} squires {at} gmail {dot} com if you are interested in being featured for this project or know of someone who is. 

Santa Monica Pier Family Portraits | The Salmeron Family

If you remember Sebastian, Fernando and Lupe from last year, you'll be ecstatic to see their new family portraits taken this weekend at the Santa Monica Pier. Sebastian is a year older and total charmer! Lupe and Fernando couldn't be more tickled by this, either. 

It was the perfect day for photos and we were fortunate enough to see the sunset over the Pacific. Some times I have no idea why I live back east! Thanks for making me your de facto family photog, Lupe and Fernando. I'm lucky to have clients like you!
