Pretty In Pink | Long Island Newborn Photos

When I found out this gorgeous newborns’ mama was pregnant I was so thrilled!! She had been recommending me to her friends for years and I was finally going to make photos of her beautiful new family <3

I miss those first few crazy weeks after coming home with my girls so much. I wish I wasn’t so busy crying and stressing out, so I could have taken more photos of that time. I guess that’s why I love doing it for others so much 🙂

Best Friends | Long Island Child Photographer

I love photographing these gorgeous sisters every year. They remind me so much of my girls in so many ways! They are almost exactly the same age, are best friends, and have the most amazing heads of hair!!! You can see their beach session from the previous year here and little sister’s newborn session here! 🙂

I love that I get to capture them growing up, it goes too fast!!

Baby Girl | Long Island Newborn Photographer

I’m going to do a little blog catch up in the next few weeks before busy season! Check out this tiny gorgeous newborn girl that I photographed this past December. So pretty in purple,  I’m so jealous of those gorgeous eyelashes!!!<3

Mom and Dad were obviously so in love already, I loved photographing them with their little girl. Of course their first baby had to get in a few photos too!

Newborn E | Long Island Newborn Photographer

I’m so grateful to have a job that reconnects me with old friends. I was so thrilled to hear an old college friend was having a little girl and even more thrilled when she asked me to come photograph her! I think E was just as excited because she did not want to sleep one bit!! Apparently that hasn’t changed much, Mom told me she’s not a very good napper. She’s lucky she’s so cute!! I can’t believe she will be 1 in just a few weeks! It goes way too fast.

Many photographers will turn down photographing newborns if they are older than 2/3 weeks old. They are considered too old for the sleepy, curled up newborn images.  While I do recommend scheduling newborn sessions within the first 2 weeks, I will photograph any age. Mom wanted to capture this time while her third little boy was still a newborn.  I let her know that at about 5 weeks old, it would probably be difficult to get the typical newborn poses. As long as she was ok with a more lifestyle type of a session, I was happy to capture this time for her and her family.

I could have photographed this ball of mush all day he was so adorable!!!
