Golden Light With the Guzmans

They were truly magic.

This little family of 3.

Tons of laughing, running around, swinging, singing, snuggles, and enjoying the moment together.

This crew holds a special place in my heart. I’ve been photographing them since they were just a couple…..marriage, pregnancy and an adorable little boy a few years in and here I am grateful to be a part of their journey.

A beautiful journey indeed.

Between the sun flares, greenery, and well let’s face it, this perfect little family, I attempted to just simply scratch the surface of sharing their magic with you all.

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.

it was incredible. they were incredible.

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…
