2nd Birthday Photo Session | Long island baby photographer | Michelle Behr Photography

So itโ€™s been two years since I have blogged. It is only appropriate that I start blogging again with the very family I left off with! Last blog, Aviana had just been born! Now we just had her 2nd birthday session! We always have so much fun styling her sessions. This one was no exception. A dreamy unicorn themed birthday session, what more could an adorable little 2 year old want?! I love the gold and blush soft tones of her photo session. These photos are made for a wall in momma’s home for sure!

First Birthday photography in Long Island, NY

I was so excited when little R came to the studio for her first birthday photos! I had done her newborn session and couldn’t believe it had been a whole year since then. Already a walker, little R did not want to stay on set! We were able to keep her still for just a few moments with a vintage doll cradle, where go got some very sweet shots of her! Part of the session was reserved for some very special portraits of R’s big sister. These photos are taken by each of the family members when they are 3 years old in a special navy uniform! Now this cutie’s photo can join the tradition!

Newborn session in East Northport, Long Island!

This wonderful family came to my studio in East Northport, NY, two weeks ago. They came with their 7 day old baby girl and their adorable son. The session was filled with inspiration. Mom brought along hair clips that had adorned her hair on her wedding day. Of course we decided to adorn baby with them too! It’s such a sweet and sentimental photo. I also took a ton of macro photos as I am obsessed with baby parts! I love getting shots of baby eyelashes and baby lips, fingers and toes! Mom also brought a special hat made by her good friend at Double The Stitches. The hat was a girly replica of her son’s newborn session hat. Big brother B is so in love with his little sister. You could see how much he adores her from the photos! We got a great one of him leaning in to kiss her :melt: I always love when Mom wants to be in the newborn session. Mom is usually so sleep deprived and not feeling her best for photos, but when she has them to look back on later she is always happy she was in them! This Mom didn’t need any convincing and I think she looks gorgeous! Baby Victoria even opened her eyes for that shot!! * Get the hat at Double The Stitches Blogstomp_0182.jpg Blogstomp_0183.jpg Blogstomp_0184.jpg Blogstomp_0185.jpg Blogstomp_0186.jpg Blogstomp_0187.jpg Blogstomp_0188.jpg Blogstomp_0189.jpg Blogstomp_0190.jpg Blogstomp_0191.jpg Blogstomp_0192.jpg Blogstomp_0193.jpg

Valentine’s photo session play date in Long Island, NY

We had a great time at the play date photo session here at Michelle Behr Photography! It was a Valentine’s Day theme and it was ridiculously fun! I have been wanting to offer a session like this for a long time and have decided to go ahead and offer just ONE of these a month! The new Playdate Photo Session can be on location or in my studio located in the Town of Huntington! I want to remember everything about my kids’ childhood and I’m sure you may feel the same way. Well, their friends are part of that! This is a way to get amazing photos of your kids candidly playing with their friends and posed shots as well! We can choose a theme together or just do it documentary style! I’m so excited to add this option to my child photography! Please email me for more details on this new photo package! Enjoy these Valentine’s Day cuties! Blogstomp_0174.jpg Blogstomp_0175.jpg Blogstomp_0176.jpg Blogstomp_0177.jpg Blogstomp_0178.jpg Blogstomp_0179.jpg Blogstomp_0180.jpg Blogstomp_0181.jpg

Belly painting art! A very cool way to celebrate the maternity belly!

A few days ago I had the opportunity to watch this gorgeous momma get her belly painted as beautiful artwork. The painting was done by Karen of Flying Colors Face and Body Art, located in Long Island. I watched as her belly was transformed into a total work of art! I could not help thinking that I wished this was something that I had done when I was pregnant. I also thought what a great idea to add to a maternity photo session! Art within art! Any mom that is having her belly painted would want to have beautiful photos of it to look back on as well.

Gender reveal maternity session…in the FREEZING cold!

This session was on an unbelievably cold day in November. We braved the cold temps and headed to the beach to do a gender reveal maternity session! I love how this mom-to-be coordinated all the pink to reveal her little GIRL on the way. The most amazing part is that the sky coordinated with her too! It was cold, but a gorgeous sunset and a beautiful session all around! I cannot wait to photograph their little girl due in just a few short months! Enjoy some of my favorites from the session below ๐Ÿ™‚

Baby Tate-Newborn-Session-NY- Long overdue!

I am terribly delinquent on my blogging! Here is a session that should have been blogged back in June! I’m photographing Tate’s baby blessing this weekend and could not let that date pass without having blogged his newborn session. I cannot wait to see him this weekend and see how big he has grown in the past few months. So today I am revisiting his newborns session! We got some great shots of Tate with his big brother! I also could not pass up the opportunity to get mom’s fabulous hair color in some shots (she is an amazing colorist!) and some of her tattoos too!
