Red, White & Blue | Long Island Children’s Photographer

I had wanted to do a field of flags shoot with my girls for their July 4th pictures for years. A school in our district always has a great one, but they take them down before July and I never remember to do them earlier. This year, one of the elementary schools in our district had an amazing display of flags. Various circumstances like family medical issues, end-of-school activities and non-cooperative weather kept getting in the way. We finally had a gorgeous evening with great light so I dressed the girls up, grabbed the camera and went to the school. As we pulled up, they were literally dismantling the display! I wanted to cry. This was my only vision for this year’s pictures! Thankfully I found out a nearby museum had a small display still up so I ran over to check it out. It wasn’t great, but I know I can create magic pout of practically anything, so I called my husband to bring the girls over. They were super happy, cooperative, in good moods and most of all, enjoyed a photoshoot! When we finished, Zoe said, “That was a fun photoshoot!” and I replied, “They can all be fun if you just cooperate…” They were being silly posing themselves and each other and I just snapped away and got some really great images. And with Zoe having just lost her top 2 teeth, I was So excited to capture that awesome toothless smile!

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.
