Studio Baby Emmy Grace | Long Island, New York Newborn Photographer | Meridith Lynn

Meridith here!  So excited to share this session, the one I did for my own little baby Miss Emmy Grace!  I dragged my postpartum self to the studio 8 days after she was born to photograph her the same way I do all my little clients 🙂

Emmy was born right before Christmas so I of course had to do at least one holiday inspired  setup then moved on to the neutrals I love so much!

 

Caught a few little smiles along the way!

 

I was so excited to use this little camera prop…and so was she!

But of course it wasn’t all sleepy baby Emmy…she definitely gave me a run and had some serious awake time!  I took full advantage and captured all of her very expressive faces 🙂

The next day I brought her sisters in for their turn!  They are so in love with their little sister and couldn’t wait for their chance to hold her for a picture.  It was beyond adorable and I am so happy to have these memories of my own babies forever.

You know I will be documenting Miss Emmy as she grows so stay tuned here and of course on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/maxmeridithrachel and on Instagram @maxgreystudio

xoxo, Meridith Lynn

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?!

 

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…

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…
