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!!!
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.
