When I decided I wanted to start offering Fine Art studio sessions, I knew I need to build a portfolio of gorgeous image and practice and hone my studio skills. I have only ever worked outdoors, on-location and use only natural light. And the space I’m using for these sessions is really small, so using lighting is just not an option, so I really needed to perfect natural light in my space. I took pictures of my own girls, but really needed to practice more, so I reached out to some friends who daughter’s I knew would be amazing in front of the camera. Sadie was my first session and then shortly after, I had Carmen in the studio. I knew Carmen’s unique features would really be incredible, with her beautiful curls and piercing green eyes. To say Carmen blew me away would be an understatement. Once again these sweet girls have such a soulfulness and I love capturing that! Carmen was game for all the outfits I wanted to use and all the poses I requested. She was a true professional and I loved getting to take her pictures!

Peanut and Pip Photography is a Long Island based, natural-light, on-location and studio fine art photographer. We also love to travel and service all of New York City and the tri-state 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.

    Sweet Evelyn and her mom came to the studio for a Fine Art session. I’ve had the pleasure of taking Evelyn’s pictures two times before and she was always amazing. But she really took it to another level in the session. She loved Sadie’s studio session. Like, LOVED. And even requested to wear the same yellow dress Sadie wore. Mom didn’t think we could pull it off because it the dress was huge on Evie. It was even big on Sadie!!! But I love the images of Evie in that dress! Evie was totally up for my styling and posing directions and loved wearing the big fancy dress at the end. It always amazes me the soulfulness a 7 year old can possess. You can see the old soul in her eyes. Yet, she can be silly and goofy! Evelyn brought along her two favorite lovies, who protect her while she sleeps. I adore the set of images we got with them. I always try to incorporate something very personal in the sessions, especially for girls of this age, where they are still little but reaching into the world of growing up.

    I LOVE when moms get in the pictures too! It is so important to be in pictures with our kids. I really adore that set of images and I know they will both treasure them for years to come.

    I really love these Fine Art studio sessions!! Book yours today!

    This image was created by subtly layering in digital background from Summerana. It really helped achieve the dreamy and ethereal look I envisioned in my head. Summerana loved it and actually published it in their June magazine issue, was all about Fine Art! EEEEK!!!

      Senior photography is a huge market across this county. But for some reason, not here in the New York metropolitan area. So whenever I get the opportunity to do senior sessions, its because clients have traveled from other part of the country to NYC and want portraits taken in our great city. I have had clients form North Dakota, Missouri and several from Texas. Senior photography is huge is Texas! I did have 2 clients that lived in NJ and 1 in NY, but they were both originally form Texas! ironically, I have never even been to Texas! Every single one of these seniors have been a dream to spend time with (as well as their moms who always accompany  them and are often here for a girl’s week/weekend!) I love finding ways to sprinkle their personalities into their sessions, especially because they are no where near home!

      Bethany’s mom is a teacher and one of her students was another client of mine, Sarah, and she kept my information for 2 years, waiting until her daughter was a senior to bring her to NYC specifically to have me take her pictures! How amazing is that! She loved Sarah’s pictures we took on the Brooklyn Bridge, so we started Bethany’s session there too. But when she told me Bethany was a HUGE Gossip Girl fan, I knew we had to venture in Manhattan at take some pictures at the Lotte New York Palace building, as the exterior was used for Serena’s residence.

      But before we headed into Manhattan, we walked over to Jane’s Carousel, as I love using it as a backdrop. I was surprised to see the lights on, as we were there shortly after sunrise. Then I realized there was a maintenance worker inside. We asked if we could take a few pictures inside. He told us it would cost us $20 and I’m pretty sure that was the best $20 a client ever spent. I was in photographer’s heaven, having the entire carousel to ourselves for a few minutes. We also borrowed a random man’s puppy for a few pictures, I got to show off my incredible parallel parking skills, stood in the middle of busy NYC streets and visited the Bryant Park holiday village. It was a great session with a beautiful and sweet girl and her amazing mama! NYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shootNYC senior photo shoot

        3 months ago, Piper turned 7 in January and a few days before her birthday, I decided to try to take pictures of her inside, studio style, since it was cold out. Also, without snow, Long Island is really not very pretty in winter! I wasn’t very inspired to attempt outdoor pictures and really wanted to practice my fine art indoor sessions. Piper was a total professional! She loved changing into the different outfits and when I told her I wanted to include her guitar, she was all over that! She had been begging to take guitar lessons for a few year and we finally started them in the fall. While she doesn’t love to practice, she lover her guitar lessons and her instructor is really cool! He teaches her songs from Nirvana, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, while also teaching her chords and how to read music. Its so cool to see your child learn something new and do it so well.

        We even got one of our whippets Hudson into a few pictures. He apparently loves getting involved and he sat on a tiny little chair so well! Our other whippet wanted nothing to do with pictures and she ran away when I tried to get her involved.

        I was really impressed with how much Piper was into this session and followed all my directions, considering she doesn’t do anything I tell her, photo shoot or not! Piper is FULL of personality, all the time. She is a force to be reckoned with. I love her so much, even though she drives me crazy! She is silly and smart, cute and crazy, spunky and spontaneous, sensitive and silly, messy and manic, inventive and insane! I always say her mind must be a really interesting place because she comes out with some really fascinating things. She is so beautiful, but often such a beautiful mess. And while I say she is the reason I drink (no really, sometimes I really do need to drink because of her!) I don’t know I would change much about her. I know she will move mountains.
