Here’s a bit from Sarah about the shoot:
Alexa and Sylvie were enchanting! We had an early morning shoot at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and it was as if the stars aligned – the weather was perfect, Sylvie was all smiles, and the former ballerina Alexa managed to make chasing and carting a baby look graceful! The light was magnificent, and we had a very inspired shoot.
Names: Alexa & Sylvie
Neighborhood: Boerum Hill
Ages of Kids: Almost 1 – her birthday is on October 5!
2 Favorites Places in Brooklyn to hang out with your kids: Cobble Hill Park with a blanket, picnic and friends on a sunny day (though it was more relaxing before Sylvie started crawling and now walking), and Music for Aardvarks class at Gumbo.
Special interests / hobbies / passions (of yours): Art – I run a gallery, and I’m just starting my own consulting business to share my passion for art with friends who might be intimidated by the “hoity-toity art world”. I also love to travel and can’t wait to get Sylvie her first stamps in her passport! And our whole family is passionate about good food! Sylvie’s current interest is waving and smiling at everyone she sees.
Anything you would like to say to your kids? Thank you for being such a happy, friendly baby, it makes my “job” taking care of you easy and fun. And I am constantly amazed by the person you are becoming, and I can’t wait to explore the world with you!
