A Day at the Zoo (New York City Family Documentary Photographer)

Warning, epic blog post ahead. Enter only if you like giraffes.

When one of your favorite families asks you to photograph them at the zoo, it's a no-brainer. When you arrive and find out that you're tagging along while they have a behind the scenes, up close and personal tour given by the zoo director himself, well, that's just plain awesome. Experiencing the day through the eyes of these fun-loving kids (and their delightful parents) was a documentary photographer's dream. (And also, I got to pet a giraffe!)
