I decided to enter a few images in the NAPCP International Image Competition, sort of on a whim. I had completely forgotten about it until I saw people congratulating the winners. I went to look at the images and I was utterly shocked to see that one of my images not only placed or merited but actually won 3rd place in the toddler category!

I loved this image of Jackson holding up my prop plane, looking up at it. I loved how he looked like he was flying through the air and could only imagine what he was picturing in his head. Jackson was not super happy during this session and when we deiced to give him the plane at the end, he came alive! He wouldn’t let go of his leaves and I love the element it adds to the image. It was pretty windy, getting cold and we were losing light, but my Sony A7III and my Sigma 135 ART lens were able to capture this moment perfectly! His dad held him up above his head for a few moments so I could make this image happen and I’m SO glad we did!!!

If you are interested in booking a session, go to shop.peanutpip.com or contact me info@peanutpip.com. I’d to hear about your vision and make it a reality.

Peanut and Pip Photography is an award winning 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.

    Its hard to create these year end videos and not include every picture in every gallery. 2019 was a great year. Once again, I had the most incredible clients and we created some really outstanding moments and memories. We had some really windy beach sessions, some super fun studio sessions, gorgeous fall backdrops, beautiful communion sessions, sessions that included the family dogs, lots of laughs, some tears and as usual, reschedules (thanks Mother Nature!) As I look back on 2019, I really proud of how much I’ve  grown as an artist and I can see that reflected in my clients’ images. I love seeing so many clients year after year and watching the little ones grow and change. And I love getting to meet new clients that I hope will become repeat clients.

     

    I hope you have a Happy and Healthy New Year and I hope to see you in 2020!!!

      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!

        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!!!
