Surprise Proposal at the Arboretum | Long Island Engagement Photographer

Surprise Proposal at the Arboretum | Long Island Engagement Photographer

I always feel honored when I am asked to photograph a surprise proposal. Not only does photographing this type of engagement session require the client to have faith in my ability to capture the moment, but he must also depend on my reliability during what is amongst the most intimate and joyous occasions that one can celebrate in life. Because I know how nerve wracking this process can be for a groom to be, my first priority for this type of session is to put the groom at ease and help him to feel confident in my ability to capture the moment. I do this by maintaining open communication throughout the planning process.

When I was contacted a few months ago by the groom to be, I knew that this engagement session was going to be really special. The groom concocted what just might be the most carefully thought out and intimate plan to propose to his girlfriend. The groom was planning his top secret proposal at Bailey Arboretum in Lattingtown, which is one of the best locations in the Long Island Region. As the arboretum is quiet, secluded and provides a wide array of botanicals, it would provide a perfect backdrop for the moment.

I recently had the privilege of being a part of a top secret surprise proposal. The groom and his family put together the ultimate surprise proposal plan that took place right here on the Boardwalk in Long Beach.  When the groom's sister contacted me to see if I could photograph the engagement, I was thrilled to be a part of it and I knew that it was going to be fun filled and momentous.

First Communion Portraits | Oceanside Children's Photographer

I remember my Communion like it was yesterday.  I can remember eagerly waiting t wear my pretty white dress and twirl like a princess.  A communion is an important sacrament and it is also a day when little girls get to feel like a movie star.  Here are a few from a recent Communion session.  Miss G was simply beautiful and the perfect model and I was in awe of the grounds of her church.  It was such a picturesque and serene location.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

First Communion Portraits | Long Island Children's Photography

We are currently in the midst of Communion season, which means that many of you moms are planning a special party for your son or daughter.    As a parent, I know how stressful it can be to host and prepare for a party, especially on the day of the event. I have been there many times. You ambitiously wake up at 6 am to finish the list of a million things you have to get done for the party.  You work frantically to get it all done before your children wake up because you want to get ready in peace and make an effort to look presentable.     You have to dress your children, and if you are like me, your husband will likely need your assistance too.   In the midst of all of these preparations, one of your children is likely to have a tantrum, the other child will lose a Shopkin that you must find at that second, you will need to play referee to your children, and you will trip over your dog, who is pacing at your feet because he needs a walk.  As a result of the morning chaos, you now have no time left for photos, so you quickly snap a few iPhone photos in which one of your children is crying, you appear tense, and no one appears happy and at ease.   

While I can't help you to avoid the morning stress, I can help you to get photos of your momentous occasion.  The easiest and stress free way to get photos, is to schedule your session before the event.  Checking this task off of your to do list before the party, will not only eliminate stress, but free up your time to enjoy the party.  So, let me handle the photos and on the day of the party, you can enjoy a nice glass of wine and breathe a sigh of relief.  

Here are a few images from a recent Communion Mini Session.  This sweet little girl is such a beauty and is just the sweetest little girl I have ever met.  I had so much fun photographing her and I just love her gallery of images.
