Every photographer loves the golden light toward the end of a day. Michael and his beautiful ladies didn’t really need any help looking fantastic, but nature couldn’t resist. By the time Michael got home from work, the light was glorious but we had to make sure to take advantage of it quickly before the coveted “golden hour” left us. The beautiful backyard proved to be a perfect backdrop, as well as other nearby locations.
I have known Michael and his eldest daughter for a while now and have photographed the stunning jewelry for his Michael F Diamonds store on 47th street in Manhattan. Getting to meet the entire family this time, along with their beautiful home and property was a real treat. Being able to photograph such an incredibly good looking family was even better and should almost be outlawed :). But luckily for us….. it’s not! Natalia was especially excited to be around such style, because she is a fashion junkie and this group certainly didn’t disappoint. We love clients who put so much thought and care into their photo session!
After the sun went down, we took some more formal shots in the living room and a few fun shots downstairs in the basement, which houses a fantastic bar and entertainment room. As if this was all not enough, Natalia and I were treated to a fantastic family dinner and drinks on the outside porch. Who is jealous ;)?!
Michael and Sveta – We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to “invade” your home with all our photo gear and for your incredible hospitality. It truly was such a pleasure to meet your family, see your beautiful home and spend an evening capturing your love and beauty. We hope you enjoy the photos!
I think Elina looks especially stunning in the photo below !!
