New {ny - long island newborn/family photographer}

New. A simple word that can mean different things depending on who you ask. This year...I hope it means only the best of things to each and everyone of you. I know to this sweet family New is a beautiful double blessing. : ) You may remember these handsome twin boys from earlier this past fall. Introducing their gorgeous twin sisters...

Touched by Grace {ny - long island newborn photogrpaher}

"...At last I stroked each newborn face, I knew my heart was touched by grace. My hands now full- as most will say, Yet my life never richer than today..."

Thank you to another wonderful family!! It was such a pleasure spending some time with you and your precious newborn twin girls. I am so excited for all you have ahead of you; and thank you too for sharing them with me for a few hours!


Five years ago to the hour I was being transported up to my room in the maternity ward and holding my babies for the very first time. I had them at 1:03 and 1:05pm and because of complications was in recovery for 11 hours with out even getting to hold them once. Seeing them for a short minute was amazing enough...but to hold them in my own heart times two...I have tears now just thinking about it. I have tried many times to put into words the feelings and emotions that awaken inside of you the moment you become a parent, but I have not gotten it perfect yet. To put it lightly it was one of the most breath taking, heart stopping, happiest life changing moments in my life, and one I would love to travel back in time to experience all over again.

Emily Isabella and Lily Anjolie. They are the most amazingly sweet, smart and beautiful souls you could ever meet. As different as they are the same. Complimenting and completing each other all at the same time. They amaze me. I am blessed in new ways every day. I can not believe how fast 5 years can go by and only wish, as ever other parent out there, that I could slow time down. For now I will have to let pictures freeze those moments we may always remember and so they can look back one day and see for themselves, how wonderful they have always been.

Happy Birthday Emma and Lily...mommy and daddy love you more then you could ever know....but we will never stop trying to show you just how much. xo

Gift to the Heart {ny - long island child and family photographer}

"A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life."

These gorgeous twin sisters stole my heart! They were so much fun and brought back some amazing memories of my own twin girls. Miss Snow White and Miss Belle have such a sweet spirit that just glowed from deep within. They are at a wonderful age of wonder and imagination and it warms my heart to think about all they have ahead of them...together as sisters, as twins and as individuals. From one parent of twins to another, you both are doing such a beautiful job. And knowing first hand that parenting twins can bring on challenges that one would not normally think about, the rewards are even greater and the most amazing blessing I could ever imagine. Thank you for sharing your wonderful family with me and I can not wait to get you the rest of your images!

Brothers {ny - long island child photographer}

I adore photographing brothers! They have such a fun, unique and special bond that is always so uplifting to witness. You can not help but smile, laugh and just imagine all the fun they must have together and all that lies ahead! With no words at all they break out into a full on wrestle and come out in the end smiling and completely understanding the other. I LOVE it! And I love these two handsome brothers. I did a session with them last year and boy have they grown....amazing! And a special thanks to their mommy too for so many reasons! ;)
