I love shooting urban locations – the vibrant pops of color, the rich textures, the interesting compositions. Another image heavy post because these kids were just so fun… you may recognize them… it’s Ava, Jack, & Lori Marie of AvaJackPhotography! =) !
Oh it’s been awhile and so much has happened! An intensely busy Summer 2011 season, an even busier Fall 2011 season, some ups and downs, a pregnancy, and then… the birth of my third, a little girl! And here we are and it’s almost the Summer season again! In that time I had the privilege of photographing so many gorgeous families, so many unique and precious newborns, and lots of gorgeous moms-to-be. If you were following me on Facebook, you caught glimpses of my work as the months went on, but I have so, so many amazing sessions that I want to share. So many images that deserve to be seen bigger, and so many beautiful clients that deserve a little spotlight!
So, now that I am back from maternity leave, I plan to really catch up around here. I will be showing my work from the Summer 2011 and Fall 2011 season here on the blog, updating my website and blog with fresh work, and my Facebook page will still show my most recent sneak peeks as they happen. So stop by the blog every once in awhile to check out what new “old” stuff is up!
In the meantime – I will share just one of my sweet little Leia Madison…definitely one of my most challenging newborn sessions because it’s so difficult to photograph your own newborn. Not just because of the c-section but so many other issues when it’s your own! Anyway, I did manage to get a “few” I’ll share her full session later. For now here is one of my favorites: simple & pure, no fancy headbands or hats, no flashy props…just sweet, sweet, baby.
The beach, a blonde, and some backlight | Long Island Maternity Photographer | September Blue Photography
A gorgeous blonde mom-to-be and beachy backlighting… a recipe for a stunning maternity session that apparently raised someone’s eyebrows enough to report her image and get me banned from posting images on Facebook for several days. Doesn’t take one bit away from how stunning this session was.
Rieley was a sweetheart to photograph. She gave us so many expressions and so much of her sweet little personality.
Back in April, I hosted a 1 on 1 newborn workshop with and for another local photographer (Tatiana of www.tinyclicksphotography.com) and I fell in love… with macro. Now - I’ve always tried to capture those sweet little baby parts and I’ve always loved them (especially baby feet, love baby feet!) but I never knew love like this before. And this first image was the shot that made me fall in love… As you might have guessed, a Nikkor 105mm 2.8 VR has found a permanent home in my camera bag! Below you will find baby Colin and baby Maja, our two adorable workshop models.
Another gorgeous newborn girl…I’ve had so many newborn girls in the past few months and so few newborn boys.
This little girl was quite smiley…and let me try lots of fun new stuff.
The busy outdoor season is officially in full swing (yay!) and so blog posts will get a bit shorter, but maybe more frequent as I try really hard to catch up, and you’ll see lots more fun outdoor work which I am excited to show and even more excited to shoot.
This is beautiful baby J, yes she is definitely indoor… with a touch of the outdoors brought to her session. This prop is real and I love it for that reason. It makes it that much more unique. It weighs a ton but again, love it. It’s currently undergoing a metamorphosis of sorts as it gets dried and treated for future use. While I looove the rich bark texture, I can’t wait to see how it’s going to look when it gets it’s new look!
That’s what this maternity session was all about. K & K’s connection was so easy to see and this mama to be’s connection to their soon-to-arrive baby girl was clearly there. Her confidence, happiness, and pregnancy glow were all there. And I loved capturing it.
