Still So Lovely | Long Island Baby Photographer | September Blue Photography
Last year, about this time (give or take a month), I had the pleasure of photographing my friend’s long awaited newborn baby girl. To this day, her session is still one of my best lit newborn sessions… I walked in to the house to find a sunroom just bathed in warm, beautiful natural light. I was in heaven. Before I knew it, we were planning her 1st birthday session… we were all about the location. In the meantime, beautiful baby Annabella was developing a little aversion to grass. Yes, grass. Did not want to touch it, have her bare feet on it, lay on it with a blanket - nothing to do with it. So what? She’s a baby – it’s new, it’s green, it’s itchy, there’s dirt under it - quite frankly, I don’t blame her for not loving grass at first sight. So we found a gorgeous location that gave us lots of beautiful backdrops… sans icky grass. And she was a happy girl.
Check out the daintily pointed toes – how adorable is that?
Did I mention her handsome big brother was there too?
Such a ham…
One for the wall…
A personal favorite… she was so exhausted after a long day of modeling…can you blame her for knocking out like this? =)

Beachy Keen | Long Island Family Photographer | September Blue Photography
A fun family beach session to share today… getting outdoors in the summer sun, with a cool ocean breeze and their adorable toddler. Family beach sessions don’t get old for me… especially with a family this fun. Check him out in that last shot – he is positively soaked! They had been playing in the surf, jumping waves, and just plain goofing off. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

And the winner is… | Long Island Newborn Photographer | September Blue Photography
And the winner is: Dean! Well, actually, Dean’s mommy. She won one of a few prizes I donated to the lifamilies.com Bridal Luncheon this year. When I donated a complimentary newborn session – I had no idea it would go to someone already expecting – so I put an expiration date of 2011 on the gift certificate. I was absolutely thrilled to find out it went to someone already expecting and very deserving. J & V, you are a lovely couple and now a beautiful new little family – congratulations again!

Brother & Sister | Long Island Baby Photographer | September Blue Photography
So happy to finally share this session with you … meet Mac & Peyton: brother and sister, about a year or so apart. I love seeing siblings this close together in age because you just know how close they are going to be growing up together. Mac was so adorable, grabbing a hold of my hand almost right away, we ran off to play together and had a blast during this session. Mom joked with me about how he would’ve gone home with me. I loved capturing both their blooming little personalities.
Warning to future clients: I am currently obsessed with white – you will probably hear me recommend white something during your pre-session consultation - don’t know how long this will last, but I am just loving it…
I love, love a classic headshot. Crisp eyes with solid eye contact, a great smile – creamy bokeh in the background…. there is something so timeless about it…
And really, there aren’t much cuter things in this world than a baby grabbing toes… irresistible cuteness! But it’s her eyes that really draw me in here…
You can’t help but smile right along with him here…
Again with those eyes!
And finally – some sibling fun!
Twice as nice | Long Island Maternity Photographer | September Blue Photography
You read that right. She’s expecting TWINS. Yes… there are two babies in there. How, I don’t know… but she tells me they are in there. Can I tell you how excited I am about these babies? They’ll be here in just a few short weeks – identical boys – and I get to do their newborn session!
I literally squealed out loud when I read the email telling me she was having twins… you see, she’s been my client for a long time now and has become more than just a client… You might recognize her seriously adorable daughter (who’s always all over my website – and my samples!) from past work… it’s been so fun watching her grow up and now to see her become a big sister to two little brothers – well, this is one of the perks of being a family portrait photographer that makes it so worthwhile. I get to be there for this family to document momentous occasions in their lives… toddlerhood, holidays, pregnancy, and soon – two new additions to their family.
Anyway, back to how fabulous she looks…
Loved this color combo on her…
Just a couple more… I can’t help it! Two babies people. Two. See you in a few weeks D!!!

Dillon | Long Island Newborn Photographer | September Blue Photography
I was so excited to meet baby Dillon. I did his Mommy’s maternity session in January, when we were lucky enough to get a few flurries for her outdoor shots. It was just so fitting that he was a Spring baby with those snowy Maternity shots! Dillion definitely got his parents long, long legs. He still curled up so adorably for me in my green wrap. He ate and slept like a champ for his newborn session and with all that eating – we certainly had a few laughs over all the resulting…er…. incidents. Dad got the brunt of it, but he handled it really well. I always tell my newborn parents – the accidents are inevitable – I expect it and plan for it. All we need to do is have some paper towels and wipes nearby, we handle it and move on. After wiping away the tears of laughter, of course! As you can imagine, I’ve got some pretty hysterical stories and most new parents can definitely appreciate and relate. You won’t have to ask, I usually cheerfully volunteer to recount them!
Anyway – again another shout out to Dillon’s Dad on this shoot – I absolutely loved the suitcases and other props (some of which Dillon was too big for!) that he had ready to go!

Five weeks early | Long Island Newborn Photographer | September Blue Photography
My jaw dropped when I opened the email that said “well, my son came about 5 weeks early…” I’ve gotten my fair share of early newborns but 5 weeks definitely wins the prize for earliest. Baby C was a healthy 6lbs 4 oz at birth and as strong as any full term baby. But he was putty in my hands, so cooperative, and a complete pleasure to photograph. Congratulations R & T on your beautiful baby boy!
My husband and I went on a quick weekend getaway a couple of months ago to New Hope, PA. We stayed at this excellent B&B and I picked up this vintage cranberry crate while exploring the local antique shops… it’s a new favorite for sure and Baby C was so awesome to let me try it for the first time. It’s now my new gallery wrapped canvas sample (photo of that coming soon!)
He was also really good in my twiggy basket…

Sweet Chub | Long Island Newborn Photographer | September Blue Photography
It’s been a whirlwind month – is April really over? Where did it go?! Oh yeah… to the chubby feet and squishy faces of the all the newborns I was lucky enough to photograph this month! With only a minute to blog tonight – here she is… all of 19 days old, my “oldest” newborn yet: Miss Layla. (Love that name!) Look at all that sweet chubbiness… M & C, it was so nice working with you and M – my thoughts are with you! Thank you so much for letting me into your home to photograph your gorgeous newborn baby girl.
Bella Familia | Long Island Family Photographer | September Blue Photography
Bella means beautiful. In Spanish, in Italian, and in these photos… beautiful family, beautiful little girl! K booked me for this session last year and it seemed SO far away (to both of us) but it got here before we knew it and now she’s got these family portraits, full of genuine emotion, real smiles, and memories of a fun day, that she can look back on for years to come. We know that one of the moments captured from this is session is getting blown up and going on their wall. And this…THIS is why you hire me. You see, like most Moms, K is the one doing most of the picture taking, most of the time. Which makes for great shots of her little girl, and her little girl with her Daddy - but hardly any of her with her daughter and even less of the three of them. Now she’s going to have a hard time choosing what goes on her wall and how big. =) To the P family – I looooved our session – enjoy your few extra sneak peeks, your gallery will be ready soon!
