Forgive me, but I couldn’t help myself. During some downtime in the services, I snuck outside where parents were keeping their younger children entertained. I love photographing babies and young children. So here are two sneak peaks of two adorable boys. In a few days, I’ll post two of some pretty, young girls I got to photograph. Thanks again, to the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island for letting me be a part of such wonderful moments in peoples’ lives.
Anna and Gerard Succes are the parents of two adorable daughters. Alessia, their oldest, is one of Walker’s best friends, and earnest advocates. They met last year on the playground and they attend the same nursery school here in Astoria. They’ve been as thick as thieves since the first day they met. Alessia is an energetic, beautiful, strong-willed girl who knows how to enjoy life.
Ilaria, Alessia’s younger sister, is a delightful bundle of baby cheeks and giggles. She just started to walk a few months back. She has a sparkle in her eyes, and her giggle exudes joy. She’s a giving, bright young girl who’s easy to get to love.
I had the pleasure of taking Ilaria’s portrait to commemorate her first birthday recently at Rainey Park here in Long Island City, Ilaria’s family managed to get into a few of the photographs themselves. Both daughters are so fun to photograph. So are both parents. I’m hoping they invite to take their portraits some more. They are a great bunch of people and it’s a pleasure to know them.
