I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason. When I needed to build my portfolio for studio sessions and practice that art, I reached out to a few friends to see if their daughters would model for me. One of those girls, Sadie, was a dream to photograph. she was up for anything, let me style her however i wanted, never complained and put up with me for a few hours. We created some incredible images that are some of my favorites to date and went on to be published several times and win me some awards. When a friend of Sadie’s mom reached for a session with her daughter, I was excited. But even better was we *should* have known each other from our younger years in the clubs, but somehow we never met! Ripley turned out to pretty much the exact same person as my Piper! They loved all the same things! Ripley was also completely obsessed with my dogs and was SO happy to get Hudson to cooperate in pictures. When Piper came home from soccer in the middle of my session, her and Ripley pretty much hit it off instantly! They went and played together and basically became best friends! We even had their whole family to our beach cabana in the summer, because we all became friends! So, yes, sometimes, things all happen for a reason!
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.
