Two locations for the cost of one! We started at home to get the initial images pre wind, humidity and lolly pop bribes materializing too soon… I was almost sure the beach would’nt work, it was also dinner time, but we were all pleasantly surprised! The very last image was from two years ago.
When I arrived, this gorgeous girl was watching her father and brother playing basketball. She was dressed to go and they ran into the house to change. I met this the family when the kids went to Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club Camp a few years back and they all keep getting more beautiful each year.
Freezing the moment is what good photography is all about. Here are various kinds of tosses mastered by this Dad.
I recommend squeezing the last drops of golden light available when it comes to beach shoots. This family started inside and when we got to the beach, just steps away, we had about 10 minutes. This being said, once the sun set, there was a lovely soft dusk that set in, shadowless and wonderful!
These images show how much fun these sibs were having!
We are all waiting patiently for this mild but very long winter to end! Looking forward to summer fun in the Hamptons catching moments like these.
A new website with a ton of new images to show off! Mention "new website" when booking a session starting today through Father's Day, June 19th for a 10% discount on the portrait package.
I photographed this family both inside and outside. Both have different advantages. Outdoors the scenery is beautiful and placing children and families in nature can be creative depending on location and sunlight. Indoors offers a level of comfort. Children are familiar with their surroundings and moms can change their clothing easily during the course if the session. Their is also the wonderful natural window light that can light up a face so softly...
Tweens are the years right before teens, so about 9 to 12 years. Its a time in a child life that marks the last of the innocence and the impatience to independence. Many of the tweens I photograph are children I had been photographing since they were babies. I had the pleasure of seeing them grow up which is special.
It was the perfect time of day when the sun is low and golden. Two gorgeous girls who I have photographed for a few years greeting me at the door, the rest is history! A fun photo shoot for the girls, the parents and me! I had a hard time choosing my favorites for this blog - I don't know how their parents will choose the images for their holiday and wall!
There is nothing quite like the summer in the Hamptons. This is my third year with these beautiful sisters at their wonderful home. The beach isn't always the best place for photography. The sun goes down so late, making photo shoots start at 6:30 when children are hungry and sleepy. I always encourage photographing at homes. Im always taken by the beauty of the summer greenery there. The summer is going fast and Im almost fully booked for August! Please book soon to get on our calendar.
