What better way to beat the winter doldrums than an exciting winter/spring photo session!

The images you see here are from a shoot done last week to mark the milestone 5th birthday of this beautiful big sister. That couldn’t wait until it was warmer outside.Remember our motto, …life as it happens!  Sessions at this time of year are amazing, from the incomparable light of winter to the early days of spring—it’s a great time to capture great images of your children. It makes you appreciate these cold wintery days! Sessions that take place at your home are especially lovely now because I am able to capture your children where they’re most comfortable and in their own environment. And, of course, we can make 5-10 minute visits outside to take those wonderful snowy pictures. As the winter turns into spring, we’re able to incorporate the outdoors even more.

Year 7, or is it 8 with the J Family {Connecticut-Long Island Family Photographer}

This session is the first of three upcoming families that are all related and have been with me since I first opened my business.  They truly feel like family.  I can't wait to see them every year and marvel at how much they have grown over the years. 

It started with big brother P when he was the only child.  We met in Central Park and the session was magical.  Then came the twins but unfortunately they had moved south because of a company transfer.  Happily that didn't last and they were back before the twins turned two.  Then came baby H.  Oh baby H is such a charmer and isn't a baby anymore! 

Mom and Dad, thanks so much for allowing me to spend this time with you over the years and create memories for you and I both to treasure forever.  

And, thanks a million for the beautiful birthday flowers!

Be Still My Heart {Long Island Children's Photographer}

Here are two perfect examples of heartbreakers in the making.  These boys are breathtakingly handsome.  I love working with kids this age.  The spirit and new found independence of the three year old and the seven year old who is now a boy, not a little boy anymore.  A wonderful age to capture so it is not forgotten.

A Rainy Day in Montauk {Long Island Children's Photographer}

This beautiful family with 2 sisters and their cousin was a session done on a family vacation in beautiful Montauk, NY.  It was also a gift for the girls grandfather and the only day the session could be done turned out to be a grey rainy day.  Thankfully the beautiful house they had rented had huge windows and great overhangs on the decks outside.  It also stopped raining for a little while before we were done and we hurried outside to get a few images on the beautiful lawn.  It wasn't easy but I think we got some wonderful images!  Life as it happens...

Sibling Love {Long Island Children's Photographer}

Oh how I adore these two!  Always fun in the studio when they are here.  Big sis was a Year One baby and now it is her little brother's turn.  He is now sitting and on the verge of crawling.  One of the best times to capture in that all important first year of life!

The Year One Collection is designed to record your baby as a newborn, between 6 and 9 months when they can sit on their own but still not crawling, and around their 1st birthday, where we might just capture their first steps?  All the magic of the first year captured and presented in a beautiful album, art canvas and in gift prints.  The Year One Collection is the ultimate gift for new parents that will be treasured for a lifetime.  Using our Baby Registry is a wonderful way for family and friends to contribute to this most meaningful of baby gifts.  Please contact the studio for details.

Those Eyes! {Long Island Family Photographer}

The G family and I had a bit of a difficult time getting together.  Between hurricane Sandy and a bad haircut, life was getting in the way.  Well all I can say is last weekend we did it and it was worth the wait!  And the best part was all the grandparents got to be part of the day so as I always say, all things happen for a reason.  I had such a lovely time with this sweet beautiful family!  Enjoy this little sneak peek.  Your gallery will be up soon.
