A Newborn, a Daddy, a Guitar | Long Island Newborn Photographer

Newborn photography is challenging in and of itself….  but it is also so rewarding.  I love when the parents challenge me with ideas or bring in elements of themselves, their lives, their personalities and ask me to incorporate them into their portraits somehow.  It gets my creativity flowing and results in the parents getting a truly personalized session with personalized images that mean alot to them.    This was my second time photographing this family…in fact, you might recognize Dad’s tattoos as a photo of him and their newborn little girl had a home on my website for many, many months…  now it’s time to update it with this shot of her brand new baby brother… J&P, congrats again!

Speaking of snow… | Long Island Maternity Photographer

When S and I discussed what she wanted for her maternity session she mentioned that she wished we could go outside… Outside in Feb?   I was totally up for it.  The truth is, after being cooped up indoors for all my sessions since October, I was itching for some on location outdoor shooting.   And then I got lucky.  With a big snow storm looming in the forecast for our session day, I knew that even if we just got a dusting, it would be enough for some great outdoor shots.   And that’s just what we got.  As I trekked up her snowy and slippery walkway in my boots, clutching my camera for dear life, I looked around and quietly cheered for more snow.   I rang the doorbell and was greeted by a tall, slim, gorgeous blonde.  Whoa.  Lucky again.    So we got some indoor work done… quickly and easily… it was effortless for her…  My 5’4″ self stood on a chair for most the session.  Ok fine, 5’3.75″ =)   We hurried outside and I instantly saw her face light up and her eyes sparkle…she told me she loved the outdoors and evidently, the outdoors love her back.  The camera picked it right up too… 







What I love about these two shots is the great eye contact in the one on the left – shows off her great eyes, but the connection is in the one on the right – she’s looking at her husband.  =)
