New York's Newest, Through a Classic Lens

null In case the traditional approach of planting your child in front of a dull-colored, plastic background for his first portrait doesn't appeal to you, we recommend checking out Classic Kids Photography. The studio, created and run by former tax attorney Julie Floyd, opened its first Manhattan location about a week ago on the Upper East Side (1182 Lexington Ave at 81st St; 212-396-1160, classickidsphotography.com). Floyd's approach is based on a highly artistic vision, and the resulting black-and white photos thus stand out as candid and imaginative. These kids appear to be caught in a comfortable moment, not forced into an artificial pose. As a result, they are much more pleasant to keep on your wall for years to come, and aren't likely to cause embarrassment when your child grows up.
