Follow the Light

About a week and a half ago before the rainy weather began, I caught a sunset at Robert Moses with some really beautiful light.

I explored all around the area in my usual favorite places – the beach, the path to the Fire Island Lighthouse and the Great South Bay. I also took another way off the lighthouse path and found a walkway to the beach that looks like a road, which made for some shots that I really love.

Enjoy and here’s to hoping the weather goes back to normal soon!

Colorful Captree Sunset

Captree State Park is the last stop on the causeway before Robert Moses. It’s an island that offers 360 degree views of the Great South Bay and is beautiful year-round. I’ve visited the island quite a view times during the day, to fly my drone and for some alright sunsets.

But this past weekend was a real treat – after a day of shifting clouds, a dull sky and the sun disappearing, the sky lit up in hues of pink and orange. The photos below are in chronological order to display the progression of the sky. The weather was also perfect, which made for a beautiful night with plenty of photos to share.

A Weekend in Boston

This past weekend I visited Boston for the first time! I was really excited to explore and check out a new city.

I had my camera with me most of the time but Saturday’s weather was snowy and rainy, so Sunday is when I took all of my photos while walking around the city. Besides checking out Quincy Market, Little Italy and other areas downtown I also visited the New England Aquarium and Harpoon Brewery. Of course plenty of seafood was consumed, including an incredible New England clam chowder.

Boston was a great weekend getaway and I look forward to visiting more cities on these mini-trips in the future. Enjoy the photos and have a good week everyone!

Edge of the Island

Montauk is one of Long Island’s most famous destinations and also a favorite place of mine to visit. I’ve been missing it a lot lately and wanted to share some of my past work from there. The lighthouse, the cliffs and the crisp blue water make it seem like another world. I can’t wait to go back and capture more.

Portraits in the Pines

For my latest portrait session with Gina, we headed to Prosser Pines Park here on Long Island. The pine trees and snow paired with golden sunset light made it a beautiful afternoon for portraits. Enjoy and contact me by email at info@ericamengouchian.com if you’d like to book a portrait session!

Sand & Snow

One thing I love about winter is the opportunity to visit locations that people don’t normally visit this time of year due to the cold weather. We had some snow here on Long Island the other evening and the next morning I headed out to capture some snowy beach scenes.

First I went to Captree State Park, a small island located in the Great South Bay off of the Robert Moses Causeway. I love it here and the 360 degree views of the bay are great any time of day.

Then I headed down to Robert Moses to catch a quick glimpse of the ocean before a walk along the Fire Island Lighthouse path. A chilly day but well worth it to capture these winter beach scenes.

Later that day I had a portrait shoot and will be sharing those photos in next week’s blog post! Have a great week!
