Great Neck Family of Three Portraits on the Beach

I have been so lucky to be the family photographer for this sweet, lovable family for an amazing seven years. Let me say that again; seven years! That’s what made this special, among other things. I met this beautiful young lady when she was just three years old, and it’s become so meaningful to me […]

Adventure Land Bat Mitzvah Portraits

It’s so important to capture the milestone of a Bat or Bar Mitzvah…it’s a meaningful moment for a young person and for their families. It’s rich with traditional and memories, and often emotional for parents and grandparents to witness something so special. I myself have shed a few tears at these wonderful ceremonies or parties, […]

Family beach photos with little boys

Little boys. Need I say more? Whether they are being sweet and cuddly, or running around with wild abandon, little boys kinda-always steal my heart during their sessions. They never fail to bring the energy and fun to a shoot, and when there is more than one? Forget about it, and let’s have some fun! […]

Mom, Mom and baby boy Family Photos

Funny story, I took these lovely ladies’ photos last year.  But what I didn’t know is that baby boy was already with us!  He was snug as a bug in mamma’s belly growing getting ready to be loved like crazy. My goodness, he is adorable.  You can tell he is doted on and loved to […]

My Little Cousins are Seniors

How did this happen?! My cousins are somehow seniors in high school, and time is a thief. I grew up in a town called Valparaiso Indiana. I moved away from my home town and all my family in 1998!  I have now lived in NY for as long as I lived in Indiana.  That’s crazy to […]

Sweet and Fun Family Photos in Long Beach NY

Little boys are so fun! A boy mom once told me that when you add boys to the equation, it’s not addition, it’s exponential. They feed off of each other and rile each other up in the best way.  Boys playing is a frenetic experience, with lots of movement. So what does that mean for […]

Grown-Up Kids and Parents Family Photos in Central Park

People often think that family photos are just for young families with little kids. Every once in awhile, however, I get a call from some grown-up kids who want to gift portraits to their parents. I absolutely love when this happens, because it gives me all the warm and fuzzy feelings about being a parent. […]

Birthday Studio Portraits Long Island

Listen, sometimes you just need to put on a pink fairy dress and lay in a bed of flowers, ok?  A girl after my own heart!  She and I are on the same wavelength.   It was her birthday, and mom wanted to do something fun to celebrate her as well as document who she is […]

Family Photos at Planting Fields Arboretum

Let me tell you, I looked all over Long Island looking for a free-to-the-public place with those beautiful blooming spring trees.  No luck.  Everything was behind a paywall.  So at the last minute we decided to go for Planting Fields Arboretum.  And you know what? It was the right decision.  That place is stinking gorgeous […]

Teen Guy Headshots Long Island

I just love meeting new people through this work, and especially love meeting the young people in these shoots. It’s rejuvenating and reminds me of all the potential in the world. I am also reminded how society can have such a bright future because these young people are the next generation of grown ups. I […]
