Golden Hour | Long Island Child Photographer | September Blue Photography

With the warm hazy sunshine of the hour just before sunset bathing them in beautiful, soft, golden light – Bella & Jacob stole my heart during this session.  It’s a little bittersweet to post this session just as Labor Day weekend approaches – the unofficial goodbye to Summer – because this session captures all that is the warmth and carefreeness (yeah, it’s a word – I checked) of the season.  

This was one of, if not the first frame of the session.   Ok, off to a good start.  A really good start.


Can I keep her?

Bella and I became good friends if you couldn’t tell… this is sort of an outtake – one of the cutest white balance shots I’ve ever captured… the sunflare is so dreamy and summery here…we got lots of shot like this.

But I also loved the variety we were able to get at this location… here’s little brother Jacob… 

I don’t remember exactly what happened here – we played lots of games during our session as is usually the case when I’m working with kids… we play & laugh a ton.  But I love her expression here…

OK, I could seriously just go on and on with this session so here is a collage…  it tells the story of our session in a little more detail.  Custom photography tends to lend itself to storyboards, collages, and cohesive wall displays.  Often the story of your session – and the moments of childhood captured at that time –  is best told by displaying several images together in either an album or wall display.

Ahhh…to be her in this moment…  taking that deep breath of ocean air,  feeling that cool breeze in my hair,  not a care in the world…  all our Summers should feel like this… hope you enjoyed yours.  If you didn’t do this yet – get out there and do it!

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!

Up for Anything | Long Island Maternity Photographer | September Blue Photography

This beautiful mama to be was up for anything – including  braving the waters of this huge pond.    I just found out last night that her baby girl arrived on Friday so I figured I’d better hurry up and blog her maternity before the newborn session!  See you soon T!

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!

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!
