When Angelina turned 13, she asked her mom for a photoshoot. I had done her little sister’s communion session a few years prior and now it was Angelina’s turn to be in the spotlight. She loved the TV series “Once Upon a Time” and wanted to feel like a princess for her session. My head immediately filled up with so many ideas! I love getting to play dress up with a teen girl! Like my own life-sized Barbie dolls! I went through my studio wardrobe and knew this pink top (which was actually a dress we used as a top!) and my long, pink skirt would be perfect. I also pulled a bunch of accessories like crowns, flower crowns and cool masks to play with. Angelina was up for all of it! The location we used as our backdrop also had a fairytale vibe to it and was the perfect setting for her session. Angelina was a dream to photograph and she very quickly got used to the camera on her and after a little bit of direction from me, she posed like a veteran. I also loved that I was able to go further with my editing, since we were going for a fairytale feeling and I could be a little more creative with it. We were able to create a perfect mix of innocence, sassy, fantasy and fairytale! I photographed quite a few teen girls last year and while each session was different, they were all incredible in their own ways. I cannot wait for Angelina’s little sister to turn 13 and shoot her session as well!

Peanut and Pip Photography is a Long Island based, natural-light, on-location photographer. We also love to travel and service all of New York City and the tri-sate area. Our style is classic and timeless, with a bit of whimsy. Our goal is to preserve this moment in time. We strive to capture the magic and wonder of childhood, the dreams of teens and seniors and the love between families with beautiful, breathtaking and timeless portraits. Every session is customized to you and your family. My works stands out because it is a collaborative effort between my clients and me. I find a way to integrate both of our visions. I often joke that I have crazy ideas, but my clients always trust my vision because they know they will get something unique in the end. I don’t see the world the way everyone else does and that is reflected in the art I create. My ability to create on the spur of the monument is part of my magic. While I always have my go-to locations, I rarely shoot them the same way each time I go there. I get bored of the same things very easily and no two sessions are ever the same, even when shot at the same locations.

    These sweet cousins were so much to photographer. They are super close and were the silliest, happiest and funnest little girls! I was laughing so hard during their session because of their antics. Its no secret I love shooting little girls and styling them with fun dresses and props like flowers, wagons and cute strollers. But even just standing still, or at least attempting to to get them to stand still, was just hilarious. Apparently they both just love to dance and were really just having the best time together. I dressed them both in the dresses I keep in my studio wardrobe for clients. I loved picking out coordinating outfits for them and finding pretty flower crowns to match. What’s better than secrets between cousins as close as sisters, surrounded by flowers?

      Montauk is The End. Its the eastern most point on the south shore on Long Island. Technically its part of the Hamptons, but Montauk has its own unique vibe. Its way more laid back than “The Hamptons” and is more of a surf town. Its a lot more casual than the other Hamptons, yet still beautiful and sophisticated. For the past 5 years, we have gone there every summer. We always stay in a different place. We’ve AirBNB’d, stayed at the famous Montauk Manor, rented a house with my in-laws, and stayed at some of the hotels in town. Staying in the town is great because we can walk to the beach and the town. We’ve never had a bad meal in Montauk and love trying new places and visiting our favorites. We buy sweatshirts every year and I have amassed quite a collection! This family tradition is extremely special to us, as my husband and his sister grew up visiting Montauk as kids and my mother-in-law had a second home there in her childhood, as her father owned a restaurant there. What was The Flying Fish, is now Rick’s Crabby Cowboy Cafe (and some place we absolutely must visit every time we go to out there! We highly recommend the corn fritters!) So to now bring this tradition to our own girls, has been something really special to all of us. I’m also not sure who looks more forward to our annual trip; the adults or the kids! We have so many great memories and we love creating new ones every year.

      So when my local client saw the MTK sticker on my car, she asked if we frequent Montauk. We then realized its super special for both our families and she said she’d love to coordinate our visits the following summer and fit in a session. I was so thrilled when we realized we’d be there the same time and set up a session for her boys. I scouted out locations, looking for quintessential Montauk and anything off the beaten path. I stumbled upon a little spot on the lake and it turned out to be right by her parents’ house! We had a gorgeous night with a perfect Montauk sunset for a session with her two boys who are sweet as could be. I laughed the entire time and loved everything about their session. And we discovered a little boat on the shore, I knew we were int he right spot!

      Today we set off for our annual family trip, staying at yet another new place, right on the beach and figured it was the perfect time to share this special session.

        Last fall, just before it turned cold, I was able to do an amazing session with a repeat client. The year before when they had their session, Conor was barely sitting by himself. Now, he was walking and if you photograph kids at that age, you know how much more work it can be! Especially once they realize they can run! Thankfully, Conor was pretty good, but getting to sit at all was nearly impossible. He did stand still a little, which is always helpful, especially when you need to capture him with his doggie siblings! And it as equally important when the dogs will sit still too! So yeah, an 18 month old boy and 2 dogs….and I managed to get an incredible image of them all standing.still! Like the year before, we did this session out in Southampton, which is such a beautiful place. It was a warm evening and we were still able to go on the beach and not freeze! the sunsets in the Hampton are always amazing and they did not disappoint that night. I love having the opportunity to watch my little clients grow and see how their personalities  change over time.
