I have been photographing this family for a long time. The first time we did a shoot, I wasn’t feeling great (it later turned out I had the flu) but we were right at the beginning of peak foliage in the fall and I wasn’t about to take the chance of missing that. The boys were SO good and loved posing for me. They were so cute and had me cracking up, coming up with their own poses and everything. The following year, we did a session in Montauk, where their family has a house and we vacation every summer. I found a little inlet and again, the boys were amazing to photograph! We laughed SO hard during that shoot! This time, mom promised it would be a family shoot. Erin reached out to me via email, while were finished up a last minute trip to Montauk and asked if I could find time to do their session in the next 7 days, as she was scheduled to start radiation for her very recent diagnosis of cancer. I was heartbroken, but since I knew the weather was going to be really nice that evening, I told her we would shoot that night, as were heading home anyway. We had gorgeous weather, a simple but beautiful location and I was thrilled to finally meet her husband! As usual, my face hurt from smiling and laughing during their session. The boys loved on their mom, Erin was never without a smile or laugh and Jason made sue everyone had a great time.

Erin went on to successfully complete her treatments and is doing really well. I know this time right now, during the Covid-19 outbreak, is super scary for everyone, but it is especially scary for those that are immune-compromised and even worse for those with lung conditions like Erin. As much as I miss all my clients and having sessions, we all need to stay home, wash our hands and look out for those in our communities who need us to stay healthy for them to stay healthy.

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.

    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!

      The Portrait Masters is an  accreditation program, explicitly for portrait photographers of all genres, is a recognition of ‘high professional standard’, not something that awards merit only. Portrait Masters accredited photographers can ensure clients they are working with the true professionals of the industry. Points accumulate each round and never expire. Every image is reviewed by 5 judges and an average score is given. Images that receive a score of 70 or higher have met professional standards and receive either a bronze, silver or gold merit. If your image earns a bronze, silver or gold merit, you will receive points toward becoming an Accredited Portrait Masters Photographer. The judges are some of the top portrait photographers in the world, including Sue Bryce, Richard Wood, and Susan Stripling, just to name a few. 

      For this round, I submitted 6 images and 5 were awarded Bronze status. Last year, I submitted 4 images and 2 received Bronze awards. All the images that scored bronze this year were all scored higher than last year’s bronze images. I’m really proud of the scores I received and look forward to pushing myself further next time.

      Score: 75

        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!!!
