I first photographed Anabella for her communion portraits in 2014. She was so fun to photograph and has just the right amount of spunk. A few years later, I got to photographer her older sister Angelina for her 13th birthday portraits. Angelina wanted to be a princess and her session had her wearing a huge pink skirt and a crown and we shot in a beautiful garden. I was so excited when Anabella’s mom reached out for her 13th birthday portraits. She old me that Anabella wasn’t girly, which I quickly realized was not true at all, as she is tall, has legs for days and hair to match! Her makeup was done perfectly and was soft and feminine. And does this girl know how to pose! She was an absolute dream to photograph and I barely had to give her any direction at all! We were blessed with a beautiful fall evening with amazing light.
I absolutely love photographing girls at this age! And I’m always amazing at how cool they are! They know how to dress, do their makeup and pose! Seriously, bring me all the tween and teen girls for photos!
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.
