Snow Snow Go Away

I think we are all thinking the same thing today…… really, snow?! Is someone going to jump out of nowhere and yell “Sike!”. Yup, the snow is really out there and yes we are all fed up.

On a brighter note, today I am posting an outdoor session because I am going to will the sunshine to come ASAP!

This was one of my favorite sessions, they played, tickled, squeezed, and all around had so much fun with each other. I got to partake in their family dynamic and create images that they can look back and say hey I remember when…

The light, this family, and the joy of just being all came together for this beautiful gallery I share with you today. So lets all will the sunshine to come out and stay!

I give you the wonderful Gelman Family:

Boys will be boys…..

Daddy’s arms are where its at….

Getting the sillies out with mom….

So very very loved.

Shah Family Fun

The Shah Family

In-home sessions are really something special.

It’s your here and now, the place you are creating memories in at this moment in time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this lovely family. The smiles, the simple glances at each other, the pure joy that beamed across their faces when they looked at their boy.

Remember now, remember then, this time is fleeting and we have these images to remind us of these brief moments in time.

 

You are so loved little one.

We even got both grandmas in on the shoot and fun too!

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

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…
