Pet Portraits on the Beach

This was such a fun session for me. First of all, I am an absolute dog person.  Love me some puppies – I have two myself and definitely see myself in the future with more space, more time, and many more dogs.  I come by it naturally, since at one point my mom had 5 […]

Formal Studio Portraits

This shoot was a bit of a departure for me, but man, I sure love it! It felt good to do something different that stretched me creatively, and make this mom’s dramatic vision come to life. On a technical level, to get the images to be both dramatic but still maintain a softness, I had to […]

Hempstead Lake State Park Family Photos

I cannot with this family.  Mom is gorgeous, dad is handsome, and the boys are little models!  I barely even deserve any credit for making these photos so great, because they just ooze charm and glam.  Those young men are such charmers.  They always have fun ideas for us.  I love it when kids want […]

Madison Square Park and the Flat Iron Building Family Photos

Do I ever get tired of shooting photos in the city? Nope. I am always fully reminded that I am a mid-west girl from Indiana when I work in the city.  The wonder of it all never wears off! I particularly love Madison Square Park because, well, the Flat Iron Building becomes a backdrop.  That’s pretty […]

Fun Mini Session at Local Park

This family. I can’t get enough of them. I love them so much, and appreciate that they are one of my legacy families. We worked together for the first time three years ago, when their little one was just a baby, and it was love at first sight. This young family is so warm and […]

Long Beach Family Photos

This shoot was so much fun, and one of the easiest ones I have ever done. That’s because Mom and Dad brought along a secret weapon…this very special and secret weapon was the best tool any parents has ever used during a shoot to keep a toddler happy! It worked every time I even pointed […]

Big Sister’s Third Birthday

This is the second time this cute little gal and I have gotten to celebrate her birthday with gorgeous photos. But this year was extra special and important, because it was the year she became a big sister to twin little brothers. As you can imagine, twins occupy quite a lot of mom’s time, so […]

Morning Family Photos | Long Beach

There are rarely any takers on the early morning sessions, but when there are, it is the families with little ones. On one hand, it makes sense, because toddlers and babies are early risers! Up until age 12, mine would jump out of bed at 6:30am, because they were ready to go for the day! […]

Nassau County Family Photos

You’ve already had photos at a park or two, you are not really beach people, or maybe you just want something a little different?  I got you!  How about a random parking lot under the LIRR in Lynbrook? That is what we did for this adorable and fun family.  Let me mention that this family, […]

Fancy Beach Photos

My goodness. Another family’s plans for a bat mitzvah was cancelled due to COVID. When will it end?! As Ross on F.R.I.E.N.D.S reminded us, we “piv-ot!” This was not the original plan, but mom sure did her thing, and after all the many months she spent planning were cancelled last minute, she planned a brand […]
