Baby C's Big Day - Long Island Infant Photograher

I was lucky enough to photography Baby C when he was first born.  He was an angel that day!  Can you believe I got lucky again when his Mom asked me to do his Christening shots?  I arrived around 1:30 pm in the afternoon and he decided to take a little nap.

First, take a picture of his sweet Christening outfit:

Here are some of my favorite shots I got of him in his outfit while he was sleeping:


About 45 minutes later he woke up and flashed us his amazing blue eyes.  Here are my favorite of Baby C when he was awake!


Thanks so much again Jessica and Charlie for allowing me to photograph your extremely handsome little man!!!  Can't wait for the big party!

Summer smiles - Long Island Family Photographer

Recently I was able to photograph a stunning little girl.. She was only 18 months but she acted like a pro in front of the camera.  It was about 90 degrees and really humid but Mom, Dad and Sweet Baby R did great walking around a local arboretum for their family portraits.

Here are a few of my favorite portraits of the day:

Adorable Family Session - Long Island Photographer

Over the weekend I met up with my girlfriend and her family at local beach on the north end of Long Island.  I had never been to the beach, but I can tell you I will be back.  The backdrop was perfect and smiles were in abundance!!  It was really hard to pick my favorites from the session, so this post will be a little picture heavy, but I actually scaled it down, I was going to put up more!! :)

Thanks again Lori for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family!

Precious Baby Boy CTB - Long Island Newborn Photography

Recently I had the opportunity to take photos of my beautiful friend Jessica's newborn son.  Little CTB was my first newborn photo session.  I was anxious, excited and very, VERY nervous.  

Now, don't get me wrong, I read a ton.. studied a lot..practiced on my focus..but I was still a bundle of nerves and truthfully you never know what to expect with a newborn.

When I got to her home Little CTB was WIDE awake which was fine because it took about 20 minutes to set up. Here is what I brought:

A mini heater
Backdrop holder
Bean Bag
Towels
Blankets
Hats
Backdrops 

Little CTB was not happy getting undressed, and for about 15 minutes he was fussy but we soon realized the little man was a little hungry.  Jessica nursed to him to sleep and he was AMAZING the rest of the photo session.

We were even lucky that his sweet, beautiful little cousin stopped by for the photo session.  She joined Little CTB for a few shots.

Here are a few of my favorite from the session:

Two collages I made of the photos (the backgrounds are not pink, just how it uploaded):


 

This little bear hat photo is my favorite from the entire day (look at those little lips!!)

Thanks again Jessica and Charlie for allowing me to spend some one on one time with Little CTB.  He is a perfect little angel.

Giving Back - Part Two

Last Monday I did a post telling you all about the Think Pink Photography network.  They help give back to fight the evil we know called Breast Cancer..

This week I want to share with you another really important photography network I belong too.  It is called The Single Parent Project - Turning lemons into lemonade.  I first heard about this network when they were just launching, on a photography board I belong too.  I literally jumped up and down to be apart of this network.

Quoted from the site:

"The Singe Parent Project - turning lemons into lemonade is a non-profit organization founded in February 2009.  This organization, while small right now, strives to become a huge nationwide group of photographers, that provide free or reduced rate custom photography to single parents around the world."

Growing up in a single parent household I saw how hard my mom struggled to give my sisters and I anything nice.  I don't care if it was a pair of socks, my mom struggled to make it the nicest pair of socks we ever wore. 

I watched all of my friends get awesome family portraits, or school photos while we passed because we needed food instead of photos.  I clearly remember the two times my Mom spent money on family portraits, once when I was about ten and then the other when I was about 19.

Those pictures still hang up on her wall.

Then there are my two baby sisters, both single parents.  They provide their kids with everything they could possibly need, but family portraits are not on their top priority because it is a luxury cost to them. 

With my family it is easy to give back.. I love to take pictures of my sisters and their boys.  And my sisters are MORE than willing to be my photo subjects.  (anyone meet my sister Jenny? she loves the camera)

In a nutshell, parenting is hard work.  It is hard when there are two parents in the home, let alone being a single parent.  In my own life I am trying to show my boys that giving back is super important in how the world works.  Giving back feels good.  It makes me truly appreciate all the wonderful blessing I have in my life.

The Singe Parent Project is just another small way I can give back.  If you know anyone that could benefit from their services, pass along their name.  (please remember I get nothing from mentioning them either, I am just getting their name out there!)

If you are a photographer and are interested in becoming apart of this network their application is HERE.
