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!

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 🙂

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!
