Robert Moses/Long Island Photo Session

Robert Moses/Long Island Photo Session

I did a fun Robert Moses Long Island Photo session with veteran NY Jets cheerleader, Jackie.  We started our photo shoot  by the boardwalk and took advantage of the beautiful golden setting sun as we walked  to the lighthouse.  Robert Moses is a great place to have photos taken as it has so much to offer with so many great scenes, including a lighthouse, beach and a bay.  The walk to the lighthouse takes about 15-20 minutes.  Along the way there is a nice long winding boardwalk that is surrounded with all that nature has to offer.  Sometimes a deer or two may surprise you.   Along our walk over to the lighthouse, we stopped along the way to take some creative portraits on the boardwalk.

The sun was quickly setting and it was very windy on the beach side so I opted to go by the bay.  I then got Jackie to show off her strength and athleticism by doing some huge leaps into the air.  Here is one of them.

Here is another take, this one using flash.

Two completely different looks of the same scene.  Which one is your favorite?  The top one using the natural available light or the bottom one using  flash?

We finished up our session by taking a couple of quick photos by the lighthouse.

Long Island Bat Mitzvah Photographer: The Sands Atlantic Beach

Long Island Bat Mitzvah Photographer:  The Sands Atlantic Beach

What a beautiful day it was for this Long Island Bat Mitzvah celebration at the Sands Atlantic Beach.  I had the great opportunity of capturing Lauren’s bat mitzvah celebration and the Sands offered many great photo opportunities.  I loved that we were able to take advantage and photograph some of Lauren’s portraits and family photos outside by the beach.  I absolutely love the ocean blue doors by the white boardwalk out in back of The Sands.  Even the inside provides for some great photo opportunities including a piano and staircase. 

The family was so nice to work with, and Lauren, the Bat Mitzvah girl was one of the sweetest 13 year olds.  I just loved her pretty coral pink dress.  It really matched up perfectly with the beach theme!  I had a great time capturing these portraits and all the special highlights of her birthday party.  Congratulations again, Lauren!  It was great being part of your special day.

If you would like to speak to me about your daughter or son’s bar or bat mitzvah or any other special event please contact me here.  I look forward to hearing from you!

NYC Senior Photos:Photo Session in Central Park

NYC Senior Photos:Photo Session in Central Park

NYC Senior photos allow seniors to capture a memorable moment of time in their lives through fun and creative pictures. A senior photo shoot in NYC is quite different from the graduation photos that are taken at school.  Having a senior photos taken in NYC can be quite an amazing experience.  NYC has so many landmarks and backdrops that offer many opportunities to create some creative and unique photos.  NYC has tons of streets and buildings that make for great urban backgrounds, and it also has Central Park, which is one of the biggest and most beautiful parks of the city that is right in the middle of Manhattan.  The opportunities in Central Park alone for photos are endless!  

These are  some photos I took of Aaliyah last fall.  We did her senior photo shoot in Central Park.  We got to capture some really creative photos of her around Bethesda Fountain, a very popular spot in the park for photos.

New York Prom Photographer: Prom Photos in NYC

New York Prom Photographer: Prom Photos in NYC

Having Prom photos taken in NYC can be really cool.  Especially when your prom is being hosted at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.  Stephanie wanted some pre-prom photos taken back home in Long Island, NY before driving into the city to meet her boyfriend at the Waldorf where her school, Bronx Science was hosting their High School Senior Prom.   As the students were making their way in, I took some quick portraits outside of the couple before heading in to take more creative photos inside the lobby of the Waldorf.  The prom was about to begin and we literally had only a few minutes left to take the photos.  The couple as well as everyone else just wanted to go and party!  Stephanie was quite happy with these photos.  They certainly were not the average typical prom school photos that are usually taken on a plain backdrop by a contracted school photographer.  They are definitely unique and provide way more variety.  You can read more about what Pre-Prom photos are in my previous blog post.  You will also be able to preview some of the images that I took of Stephanie, her friend and her family before heading into the city.  You can contact me here to book your  prom photos or to learn more about creating a customized and unique prom photo package.
