The Ciampi Family

In-home sessions are everything.

Each family is so unique and so different from one another, from colors on the walls to choice of decor. I have the pleasure of creating galleries that represent exactly who they are at this very moment in hopes of allowing them to take this little piece “now” with them forever.

I got to document this wonderful family as they added another little angel to their crew.

As you will see they are FUN!

The spunk of big sissy had me laughing the whole time. I wonder what she will teach her little sis?! I’m sure she will teach her only the good stuff mom and dad (wink wink).

Mom nursed, big sis danced and twirled, silly faces were a must, bunny ears were necessary, family laughs, cuddle sessions, and all the shenanigans!

 
can you even with these sisters?!

this was something special.

from belly to safely wrapped in mom and dads arms.

there’s a lot of hustle and bustle that happens right before the birth.

prepping, cleaning, collecting, nesting and waiting.

awaiting the arrival, filled with awe, and wondering what it will be like to have her here.

what feels like waiting forever…..

until finally you meet the littlest human who steals your heart in just a moment.

and just like that this is their forever.

day in the life | long island new york family photographer | photography by rachel gray, max grey studio

i spent the day with them.

i adore watching the dynamic of a family. the beautiful messiness of it all. the perfect imperfection of it.

how wonderful it all is.

theres so many facets to a family. i think the best way to describe the valente crew is in one word

MARVELOUS

defined as extaordinarily great

so here it is…..just a little piece of their greatness…

poetic newborn. the custom ‘ride-along’ workshop. | long island new york in home lifestyle newborn photography | photography by max grey

For as long as I can remember, newborn photography has been a constant evolution for me. I started out strictly posing, to meshing in some natural looks with parents, to throwin’ in a variation of visuals of the home, then to just a “lifestyle” look ( <—– not a fan of that word), to now doing what I like to call a, goody-bag-‘o-pictorial-poetry.

Although I enjoy reading novels, I actually always loved “reading” picture books with no words as a child. I still encourage my children to make up their own story from what they gather from the images.

 

It is far more interesting and creates a powerful imagination, and never gets old, or can be recreated.

 

that is exactly how I run my sessions.

each family has a story, that need not be written in words. the pictures say it all.

I would like to unveil this pictorial poetry technique within a newborn/family session…
