Hello everyone! It’s been a crazy week so I apologize for not posting last week. Summer has officially begun and I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on and what my future plans are.
I had the opportunity to photograph my friends for their engagement photos! Here’s a preview from their shoot.
I collaborated with Island Strong for a fun print and t-shirt giveaway over the weekend. They do a giveaway every Saturday so definitely check them out on Instagram to catch the next one!
I have a few planned shoots coming up that I’m really excited for. A friend of mine is launching her makeup line later this year, and I have an Etsy shop owner who needs some images of the jewelry she sells. I’ll be sure to share those when they are completed.
I’m also planning on visiting Lavender by the Bay here on Long Island to photograph the lavender fields in a couple weeks, weather permitting. I missed this last year so I hope I can make there before the blooms are harvested.
I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for reading! 🙂
When you go to the beach as much as I do, you are forced to see things in a new perspective. As beautiful as a shot of the sunset over the waves can be, sometimes you need to get in and take a closer look.
I really enjoy taking these close up and extremely zoomed in shots and usually take a couple during a sunset session to mix things up. I either shoot from afar or hold my camera close to the ground and make a run for it when a wave comes in. Getting the golden light from the sun along with a shallow depth of field really change how these small scenes would normally look.
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!
