The Moskal Family

The Moskal Family

We went back and forth for a few days trying to figure out if the rain would put a delay on our shoot. We chatted and planned for using umbrellas and raincoats  if need be.

But, guess what?! We didn’t need those umbrellas or raincoats because it cleared up for us!

We had wayyyy too much fun that day. Lots of laughs and giggles were shared.

So here they are, The Moskals, a beautiful family, with 2 amazing girls, and clearly a mom and dad who love them deeply. You can see it, I could see it.

These are the moments we will cherish forever.

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!

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

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…
