I love getting requests for family sessions in the summer. There are so many beautiful parks and beaches on Long Island that make absolutely stunning backdrops. The O'Brien family chose Frank Melville Park in Setuaket. We got beautiful backlight during their session, and I could not have been happier with the resulting images!.
So excited and proud to say I have my first engagement shoot in the books! I couldn't have had better clients for this shoot. Elyse and Alex warmed up quickly in front of the camera and we got some really sweet moments while shooting in a beautiful Brookhaven nature preserve.
I always get so excited when I see a message from a client requesting a beach session! I absolutely love shooting on the beach. The glow the earth takes on just before sunset is just gorgeous and adds beautiful detail to every photo.
Chris + Maddy's session at Smith Point was one of my favorites to date. We were able to explore much of the park in just one hour which gave our shoot so much variation. I want to do more sessions like this one. If you'd like to book a session with me, message me today!
The first event I was asked to document was a sweet 16 celebration, and today it is still my favorite type of event to capture. This Sweet 16 princess, Erin, had a patriotic party theme. The attire, decorations and favors were all beautiful shades of red, white and blue.
Graduating from college is a monumental event in every college student's life. It's a ceremony that commemorates hard work and dedication.I love bring a part of my clients' celebrations. It's even better when my clients are friends.
I met Sarah my freshman year of college in a required statistics class. She's smart, relatable and just fun to be around. How lucky am I to call her one of my best friends? She just earned her Master in Teaching and it was an honor to capture her graduation portraits.
Summer's here and it's party season! Last weekend, I did zap photos with Tommy's Tunes for Maddie's Sweet 16 at East Wind Long Island. Two hours before the party, Maddie and I explored the gorgeous gardens and visited the carousel at the Shoppes. The images we captured together are some of my favorite portraits to date.
I've booked thirteen parties for the summer so far, and I'm looking forward to all of them. Here's to exploring new venues, experimenting with new techniques and enjoying every moment!
Last month I started doing Zap photography for DJ entertainment company Tommy's Tunes. As a zap photographer, my job is to capture shots throughout an event and project them onto the plasma screen TVs by the DJ setup.
Tommy's Tunes specializes in weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, sweet 16 celebrations and corporate events. My most recent wedding with Tommy's Tunes was the Rehberg Wedding which took place last weekend at the Watermill. Here are some of my favorite shots from the night.
It's been a long winter here on Long Island, and now it's finally spring. The past few days have been absolutely gorgeous. Long Island went from temps in the 40s to temps in the mid 60s in a matter of days. If you ask the Regan clan though, they'll tell you it was freezing.
The Regans are from Florida and came to Long Island to visit family. During their visit, they scheduled a multi-generational family photoshoot with me at the West Islip Marina. The marina overlooks the Great South Bay and has plenty to offer its visitors. The playground was Little Finley's favorite feature. We took some time out play and I was able to capture some sweet moments her on the swings with her family.
I grew up as a Toys R Us kid. A good report card would earn me a trip to Toys R Us with my mom, where I'd pick out a toy or two to bring home for my hard work. Last month, Toys R Us announced it would be closing many of its stores in the US. While there will always be a way to buy toys, there will never be another Toys R US.
I saw a number of photographers offer Toys R Us mini sessions, and I wanted to jump on the band wagon. I recruited my boyfriend's goddaughter, Charlotte, and her sister, Ryleigh, for this session. This was hands down the most fun shoot I've done to date. If you'd like to have a Toys R Us session done, send me a message!
Caitlyn and Thomas got engaged in July in Santorini and celebrated with friends and family this past weekend. The two threw an engagement party for their friends in family at a fire house on the south shore of Long Island.
Caitlyn and Thomas will tie the knot on June 28, 2019 at Giorgio's in Baiting Hollow. Thank you so much for including me in your special night. I hope you enjoy looking back at your photos.
