• Welcome to my blog. This is where you will find my most recent work. My name is Christine and I live in Islip Terrace with my wonderful husband and our twin girls, Hannah and Brielle (born October 2012). I am always photographing my girls to capture those fleeting memories. I want to capture those memories for you too! Your sleepy newborn with his tiny little features that will change ever so slightly within a month's time. Your 6 month old who just started to sit up on her own. Your one year old, standing and walking and being ONE! (where did that year go??). Your family together-smiling... giggling...being silly...being you.

Fall Family Portraits | Family Photographer on Long Island

The air is cool and crisp, leaves are starting to change to their gorgeous, bold autumn colors, we are all walking around in long sleeve shirts drinking our Pumpkin spiced Lattes. It’s the PERFECT time to have your fall family portraits taken! I have room for a few more sessions this September and October so NOW is the time to book.

Summer flew by so quickly, let’s not let the Fall fly by too!

Long Island Fall Family Photographer|Fall is on it’s way

I love everything about the Fall- apples, apple pie, apple crisp, pumpkins, pumpkin bread, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, the gorgeous fall foliage, crunching leaves on the ground, mums, Halloween, sleeping with the windows open! I love it all! Maybe it’s because I was born in the Fall, who knows. I do know I love it even more now since my girls are Fall babies.

My husband and I have had a tradition for years of going apple picking for my birthday. We would go upstate and bring back more apples than we knew what to do with. I make pies, crisp, apple fritters..er…yeah those weren’t so great. We won’t talk about those. (think Pinterest fail LOL)

Once our girls were born, we couldn’t wait for them to experience this tradition with us. We took them to Milk Pail in Water Mill for their 1st birthday last year. We all had a blast and they probably ate their weight in apples that day.

I can’t wait to go back! I see a lot of apple and pumpkin picking in our Fall family plans.

We will definitely be checking out some of these places: Apple Picking on Long Island

And yes, they are almost 2 and I’m just getting around to blogging these now. Today’s weather made me nostalgic. They were so wittle. They aren’t babies anymore:(

Long Island Beach Maternity Photographer

I love beach maternity sessions! I know mama’s-to-be are already glowing, but something about the light at the beach makes them look even more radiant. It helps that these 2 mamas (sisters) are absolutely gorgeous to begin with.
