Long Island Pre-Sweet 16 Photos

I am always excited to do a Long Island Pre-Sweet Photos session.  Turning sixteen is such a special time in a young lady’s life that it deserves to be honored with not just a beautiful dress and Sweet 16 party, but with beautiful photos that she will have to cherish and remember this special occasion.  And having a pre-sweet 16 photo session prior to the party has so many advantages.  

Stephanie is absolutely beautiful, inside and out.  So full of smiles, laughter and joy.  I loved meeting her and her mom. We all got to know each other quite well while I was taking her photos and we talked all about the party.  I learned that it was going to be a Disney theme.   When I heard this, I felt like a kid again.  You see, not only is Stephanie a huge Disney fan, but so am I.  She wore a gorgeous pink gown and tiara.  Just like a Disney princess.  We started her pre-shoot by taking some photos in a pretty white and blue summer dress and then quickly moved on to the pink gown.  We took some indoors and then went to one of my favorite parks and finished the shoot over there.  Here is where Stephanie got to dance and twirl in her big gown.   I was excited about the party, as was she and was happy to be the one that was going to capture the photos for what I knew was going to be an awesome party.  

I really love doing these pre-Sweet 16 sessions, because they are such a beautiful season of life for these young girls.  If your daughter is having her Sweet 16, I would love to document this time in her life with a session like this one.  Contact me today if you are interested in having this special session, or if you are looking for a Sweet 16 photographer to capture the party.

Brooklyn Wedding Photographer/Brooklyn Winery Wedding Photos

I was so excited as the Brooklyn Wedding Photographer at Rachel & Scott’s Brooklyn Winery Wedding in Williamsburg, NY.  After photographing Rachel & Scott’s engagement photos, I knew that their wedding was going to be a blast.  These two are so joyful and are always laughing.  Their goofiness and love for each other just made photographing them and their loved ones such a pleasure.  It ended up pouring buckets of rain on their wedding day but we all know that a little rain on your wedding day brings good luck.  Fortunately they chose to have their getting ready photos at the  Garden Vale Residence at the William Vale Hotel — a suite with a covered terrace the size of most  apartments in NY.  Despite all the torrential downpours and wind that day, the terrace stayed dry enough for us so that we could stage their first look and have their family and bridal party photos taken.  

After that we headed over to the Brooklyn Winery for their wedding ceremony and their reception party. There were plenty of tears and laughter and it was certainly a very emotional day for all.  We captured some great moments from their day, moments that they will look back upon for many years and remember them as if it were yesterday.  Congratulations again Rachel & Scott!  It was such a pleasure capturing this special day for you and your families.  May every married day be as lovely as the first.

Long Island Pregnancy Photographer/Roslyn, NY

This gorgeous mother to be was looking for a Long Island Pregnancy photographer to capture some photos of her pregnancy with her family and two adorable pups.  What I love about maternity and pregnancy shoots is that it can be styled however you want and include whomever you want.  A maternity photo session can not only be taking glamorous photos of a gorgeous momma to be, but it can include some romantic photos with the daddy to be and/or the whole family.  There are no rules and specifics as to what style of a maternity session you can have.  I have had clients who just want to have some maternity glamour photos of themselves.  Other times they want the maternity session to be conducted as an engagement/couples shoot.  If they have children already, they choose to turn it into maternity/family photo session and include the kids.  Or, as in this example blog post, I was asked to do a triple combination, i.e., glamour, couples shoot and family shoot all in one.

Here are some photos from a recent shoot that was a little bit of everything.

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.
