Brother and Sister {ny - long island child photographer}

These adorable twins stole my heart. They are beyond sweet and so friendly. They made me the most delicious mud soup and when it was time for me to go home they wouldn't let me leave with out the most perfect white shell found on the beach and a beautiful rock smooth from its long journey. I actually met the beautiful Miss. G and handsome Mr. M when they were not even two. I have not seen them in a couple of years and once again, I am amazed by the story time has given them. They are about to have their 5th birthday and to top it off, start Kindergarten in just a couple of weeks. Mom and Dad you should feel so proud. You have done an amazing job preparing these precious twins for the ride of their life...hold on tight I have a feeling it is going to be a blast! ;)

Twice as much love...{ny - long island baby photographer}

"No earthly joys could bring more pleasure then two little girls to love and treasure."

This past weekend was perfect...beautiful weather and gorgeous six month old twins with their wonderful Mommy and Daddy! Of course I have a special spot in my heart for twin girls and the day brought back a flood of memories for me from when my own girls were this small. I could almost hear the belly laughs that filled our home and I saw their sweet toothless grins all over again. Precious Miss J was so much like my Emma so sweet, funny and full of smiles, and Miss D an angel much like my Lily...seeming to be a bit more serious but behind that such a deep little thinker with a huge heart too. I am so excited for these sweet babies parents and all they have in front of watch them come into their own and surprise them at every turn. The bond they share will never stop amazing you...embrace it and embrace the girls for who they are, similar yet oh so different...completing each other in the most special and unique way.

Thank you for such a great day, for allowing me into your lives for a short time and for giving me the gift of reliving some very special memories! Here are a few teasers...more to come soon! ;)

only as high... {ny - long island child photographer}

“Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.”
~Karen Ravn

Thank you again F family for another fun session that left me smiling the whole day. Your boys are beyond wonderful. You can always tell how amazing parents are just by hanging out with their children for a while! ;)
