The clouds on this night at the beach were so amazing. I love how the sky changes so much, and the sky on this particular night was just so beautiful! I have photographed this sweet family since big brother was a baby, and I love watching their personalities and height grow. Thank you for letting me capture your fun family again.
I realize that the last time I blogged was way back in July. Sorry for stepping away for so long but this summer was so busy. I was photographing two camps, plus trying to just enjoy summer. I really tried to take a step away from the computer this summer and take a break. I am glad that I did but also ready to dive back into my business and blogging and showing off my work.
Summer sunset beach sessions might be some of my favorites. Being at the beach in the evening has such a different vibe than being there during the day, it is quiet and so beautiful. You can see how much fun families have at the beach at sunset.
About once a year I have photographed a wedding. I don't photograph traditional, large venue weddings, but intimate non-traditional weddings, and I LOVE it! Witnessing two people devote themselves to each other is such a blessing. I love being able to capture their love and commitment to each other. If you are having a town hall, backyard or small intimate wedding, feel free to contact me, but if you are having the large venue traditional wedding, I am not your girl, but I can certainly point you in the right direction of a great friend and amazing photographer who is. Don't get me wrong, I love traditional weddings, I had one myself. This amazing couple I met a few years ago through my good friend. She told me when the time came her sister wanted time to photograph her wedding, so I waited. I waited for her to get engaged, then I waited for her to set a date and destination (because that is what she thought she was going to do) and then plans changed and they asked me to photograph their wedding at the Town Hall, and I couldn't wait! Jackie and Jamie are such an amazing couple with the cutest son! Watching their son get to see his parents get married was adorable. He gave a huge "WHOOP" when they were finally pronounced married.
Living on Long Island you are never far from the water, and I absolutely love being able to shoot at the beach. This family is one of my favorite client families. I have been shooting for them since their little boy was born and I hope to continue to be able to watch them grow. This day was super windy and gray and at first I was disappointed that we would not be able to get any sunset pictures, but then I saw how amazing the clouds were and how great they would look in black and white with the contrast.
As I sit in my office and it’s only 20 degrees outside, I figured I could blog one of the beach sessions I never had a chance to blog yet. I absolutely love doing beach sunset sessions, the light is just gorgeous! I feel myself warming just looking at these.
