Beach Maternity Session | Sunrise Photo Sessions

Beach Maternity Session | Sunrise Photo Sessions

Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman's life and although it is draining, it is also a time when women look absolutely breathtaking. At the time, those few months may feel like they last forever, but long after your baby is born, you will realize that all went by in the blink of an eye.  

To encourage my newborn clients to capture their pregnancy, I offer them the option to add on a maternity mini session.  It is important to capture this time and my goal wit these sessions is to show mom just how gorgeous she is.  I want moms to look back at their maternity photos and realize how beautiful they looked and how special that time truly was.

Boho and Rustic Maternity Session

Boho and Rustic Maternity Session

Oh, how I wish more women would schedule maternity photo sessions for themselves during their pregnancy. There is nothing that can surpass the beauty of an expecting mother; as cliche as it might sound, the natural glow of a pregnant women is simply unsurpassed. Sadly, so many women do not see themselves as beautiful during this momentous time in life. Many women tell me that they just don't feel their best during their pregnancy and, consequently, shy away from the camera during those nine months. I completely understand and I too felt this way about myself during both of my pregnancies. Although I did not shy away from the camera and took my monthly photos of my bump, I never scheduled a photo session with a photographer and I still regret it to this day.

Spring Family Session | Long Island Maternity Photographer

Last week while driving along Park Ave, my four year old daughter suddenly shrieked, "Yay, they are back!" She was squealing in delight because the Cherry Blossoms had bloomed.  I shared those same feelings of glee because this is one of my favorite times of the year.      Those vibrant bubble gum colored flowers make the dreary landscape look like a brightly colored painting.  These bursting blooms are a sign that Spring has arrived and a reminder to take a moment to appreciate the fragile beauty that surrounds us.   If you adore bright and bold colors as much as I do, then you will love this  family session that I shot under the blooms last week.  

Mom booked her Spring session wth me back in November.  She wanted to have family photos taken before the arrival of baby number three.  I am so glad she booked with me because this gorgeous trio was a pleasure to photograph;  love simply abounds in this family and I couldn't help but smile at their joy.    The big sisters, Miss G and Miss C, both had bubbly personalities and were the perfect models. They were eager to talk about the arrival of their new baby brother/sister.   Can we also take a moment to acknowledge how absolutely amazing mom looks in her maternity portraits?    The beauty of a pregnant woman is truly unparalleled;  women simply are amazing beings.  

I ended this session with photos of mom and dad together.   Many couples have not had their photo taken together since their wedding day.  So much changes in the years that follow the nuptials, especially once you start a family and they change for the better.   It is so important to document how your love for your spouse continues to flourish and grow.  Before I babble on forever, here are a few of my favorite images from the session.

A First Birthday Session Filled with Laughter | Breezy Point, NY Cake Smash Photographer

This adorable little boy was all smiles during his first birthday photos.   We started the session with some classic portraits and he was a natural born model, laughing, clapping and hamming it up for the camera.  His aunt made him a beautiful home made cake for the cake smash.  He happily dove right into that icing.  I could not stop laughing during this session at his giddiness and when I was editing these birthday portraits, I was smiling ear to ear because this little man looks adorable in every single photo.  Can we take a minute to make note of the insanely cute outfit mom dressed him in for the cake smash?  Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

Long Island Family and Children's Photographer/ That's a Wrap 2016 & Lifestyle Session Sale/ Long Beach, NY

There were quite a few things that occurred in 2016 that were less than desirable; in fact, I often questioned whether or not I was living in an alternate universe.  On the other hand, 2016 was a great year for me personally.  I entered a new decade in my life and, consequently,  I started to reassess my life and commit myself to accomplishing goals that I set for myself many years ago. My business grew this year and I was lucky enough to meet so many wonderful families. I was honored to photograph each and every family and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.  I truly love working with each family and being able to capture precious moments for them; it just makes my heart whirl and yes, I know that is cheesy. 

I am committed to growing my business in 2017 and will be offering more package options for my families.    I have some creative ideas brewing and will be announcing them throughout the year here and on my Facebook page.  Scroll down to the end of the post to see my first announcement of 2017.

In honor of 2017, I am offering a sale on all winter Lifestyle Sessions.  Lifestyle sessions are an hour in length or an hour and a half for Newborn Lifestyle Sessions.  The session is done in the comfort of your own home.  The focus of this type of session is you and your family and the connection that exists within your family.   These sessions are my favorite to photograph because they eliminate the pressure of a formal portrait session and you get images that are authentic and capture your everyday moments; the ones that you want to remember.  A lifestyle session is perfect for a newborn session too because you get portraits of your newborns, but also photos of you interacting with your new baby.  You can see a recent newborn session here.

Lifestyle Sale:  12/31/16-1/3/2017 at midnight.  Take $50 dollars off Collection One and Collection Two and $75 dollars off Collection Three.  The sale is for lifestyle sessions scheduled January 1st through March 31st.  The session fee must be paid in full at booking time.
