Maternity Session at an East Hampton Beach by Nina Drapacz Photography

We were all set, lots of outfits, a special goldendoodle brother to be and gorgeous parents to be…. Dad was proud of his sympathetic weight gain which seems to be on par with mom’s. They were so relaxed and we all had a blast, especailly the puppy! To make the session easy, we took the SUV onto the beach for easy access to clothing and a place to change. Two hours later after this amazing session, we found that we couldn’t get out! Stuck in the sand for quite awhile until help arrived!

Engagement Photo Shoot In East Hampton! Nina Drapacz Photography

With the New York Times photo deadline approaching....weekends of terrible weather drove the session indoors to my studio. Always planning for an outdoor engagement session, East Hampton made sense as the bride, my future daughter in law, spent almost every summer there since she was small. Since Paddy, the family's adorable golden doodle, isn't invited to walk down the isle, we needed him in these engagement images. Yes, snacks were involved for this pooch as seen in his profile after devouring his biscuit...

Next the beach, which at 8:30 am was too bright so the parking lot served as the backdrop here.
