Kids of Queens – Portrait session at Hunter’s Point Long Island City

Documenting my friend’s kids is so rewarding. I get to watch them grow up, see how they change over time and experience the world around them.

It was a particularly gloomy day when we decided to take pictures but I wanted these kids (and their golden hair) to shine bright like the sweet stars that they are. Grey gloomy overcast can be good for certain moods but not for bubbly happy children up for an adventure. So we brought the sun! With a small pop of light from my flash their big personalities shined bright and lit up the otherwise dreary, sunless afternoon sky.
