LONG ISLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS/FRANK MELVILLE PARK

I had the opportunity to photograph Jackie & Nick’s engagement photos in beautiful Frank Melville Park in Long Island, NY.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons of the year. I love the cooler weather, the crisp air and the changing colors of the leaves.  It’s such a great time to take family photos and engagement photos.  The colored leaves whether they still are on the trees or if they have fallen to the ground makes for a beautiful backdrop.

Jackie & Nick both met in High School and after 9 years got engaged.   I could not be happier for a more sweeter couple than these two.   Congratulations again Jackie & Nick!

Long Island Beach Maternity Photographer

Long Island Beach Maternity Photographer

 

I was this mommy’s Long Island Maternity Photographer last year when she was expecting her first child.  She contacted me a few months ago and told me that she was pregnant again with her second and wanted to have this maternity session taken at a beach in Long Island.  But wait….here is the best part.  Since she was expecting her second baby sometime around the same month as she delivered her first baby last year, she wanted to schedule the maternity shoot on the same date as she did last year!  She explained that she wanted to be able to have the photos side by side.  I told her that this was a great idea.  The only thing that we had to hope for was of course good weather.  

On the day of her shoot, we met at Robert Moses State Park.  I absolutely love that beach.  It has abeautiful board walk that leads to the lighthouse and to either the bay or the beach.  I always have a tough time deciding between the bay or the beach.  Since the sun falls on the north side, the sunset is directly over the water on the bay side.  Since the beach side is on the south,  you don’t see the sun actually setting on that side, however you still get some of the remnants of the colored sky over there.    After taking some photos on the boardwalk path, we decided to go to the beach side.  I took some photos of the sun setting and then took some photos near the water.  Below are some of my favorites from the session.

I am a huge fan of silhouettes.  I just love these with the sun setting in the background.  This also allows me to get that warm orange and red in the sky.

The sky was quickly turning colors. It started as orange but then turned into  beautiful shades of pink and purple.

 

 

Back to the water and you can see the pink pastel undertones from the sky.  We clearly had a stunning sunset that evening and I am so glad that Gina got so lucky for this.

Long Island Sweet 16 Photography – New Hyde Park Inn Sweet 16

Long Island Sweet 16 Photography – New Hyde Park Inn Sweet 16

Stephanie’s  Sweet 16 party was at the New Hyde Park Inn in Long Island, NY.  I first met Stephanie and her mom when I captured her Sweet 16 Pre-Shoot.  I knew then that it was going to be a very special party.  She wore a beautiful pink princess dress and she decorated the room to go along with her Disney theme.  Each table was named after a Disney Princess, the cake was shaped like a castle and disney tunes filled the room during cocktail hour and dinner time. 

You can absolutely tell how wonderful Stephanie is just by looking at her photos. She is beautiful inside and out, always beaming with a smile, gracious, sweet and endlessly devoted to her family and her loved ones. From a special grand entrance, to an emotional toast by her dad that had her in tears, to heartfelt candle speeches, non-stop dancing, to a huge farewell hug at the end by all her friends, it was truly a magical night to remember.  I am so thankful to have met Stephanie and her family and to have captured this special day for her.  Stephanie, I hope your day was as amazing as you always dreamed of. Happy birthday!  Thank you all for being such a blast to spend the night with.

Venue:  New Hyde Park Inn
DJ:  CazzNY Entertainment
