Red Tree Photography {Lifestyle}

I approached Jill about photography because I had an idea for a newborn lifestyle session. Lifestyle photography tells a story with images. It documents the personality of the subject and creates a memory to reflect upon for years to come. Lifestyle photography is natural, emotional, and unscripted.
I have to admit, I was a out of my element with this type of photography. Forcing myself to work around lighting and becoming familiar with a home within a short period of time are daunting tasks. But, wow, was this mama amazing. I felt completely comfortable and right at home with this beautiful family. Towards the end of the session, I was pulling out blankets from the baby's dresser, and even had a chance to snuggle the little miss.
I hope you feel as much after viewing these images as I did while I was there.
If you love these images as much as I do, don't go far because I'll be photographing this beauty again soon!

Maternity- Sayville Family Photographer

There are elements of every photography session that come together in images to tell a wonderful story. 

During my time with this beautiful family, I was able to capture some wonderful memories, ones that told a beautiful story about their roles as parents, and also as partners. 

I'm so happy to have had the chance to connect, document, and explore. I wish the three of you the best, as you become a family of 4.

I don't like to get too personal on this blog. But I'll make an exception today because I'm emotional.

Kevin has Aspergers, which is a high-functioning form of autism... although they don't technically call it Aspergers anymore, they just call it autism.

A day in the life

When we look back at our lives, what will we remember? Will the pictures on our walls be a clear reflection of who we were? Will the pictures we pass from generation to generation show the true personalities of the subjects, or are they pressed, posed, and formal?

Today I didn't spend a "day" in the life, I spent an hour. We played with princesses, dressed up, talked about babies, and nursing, and winter clothes change outs. It's all a part of the process of really experiencing the whole story. Narrative photography.

Adventure Time

Today was a tremendous reminder that the winter is coming (totally a Game of Thrones reference). What better way to love on the cooler weather than to spend the day outside.

Simple pleasures

So often I forget about the simple things in life. There is so much to get distracted by; the running around, the chasing deadlines, the never ending to-do list. It's all so consuming.

So I spent a minute during pick up watching my boy; just soaking in the simple things.
