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.
