• 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.

Can you guess what Hannah and Brielle are so excited to announce? (OK, well Brielle was excited, Hannah wasn’t sure what was going on then ran off the set in true photogachild fashion…lol).

You guessed it! They are going to be big sisters!! We are having another baby girl this July! At 2 years old, they aren’t fully aware of what’s to come. All they know is that the baby lives in mommy’s tummy. We can’t wait for them to meet their baby sister!

We had family over for a gender reveal cake a few weeks ago and were shocked! Anyone want to help us out with baby girl names??

Long Island Children Photographer | Christine Melissa Photography

I met these boys for the first time while photographing the little one’s one year session. I knew he was a very photogenic little ham, but I found out his big brother is too. How handsome are these 2 boys? I think Santa and everyone else who receives one of their Christmas cards will agree.

Family Photographer in Long Island |Christine Melissa Photography

This family was such a beautiful, fun, energetic family. With twin one-year olds, you sorta have to be energetic. We had fun being silly, singing and climbing. (well, the kids climbed, not me..lol) And we had the most gorgeous fall night for our session. I love being a Family Photographer in Long Island because we have the most beautiful light and fall foliage here! These photos are going to look awesome in the families home and on their holiday cards!

Here are some favorites from their session.

Baby C loved to smile. He was a natural. Sometimes I had to wait for it, but I caught a few. As a newborn photographer, I’m used to waiting. Waiting for baby to get cozy, fall asleep then fall into pose.

Long Island Newborn Photographer | Tiny Princess

Baby A reminded me so much of how tiny my own girls once were. They grow so quickly! It is so important to capture them so tiny so you have the memories to look back on. Her session also brought back memories all the advice I received in the early months. (some unsolicited, some solicited, some good, some bad). Mom, Dad and I were talking about different parenting tricks and all the advise new parents are given. Most of which new parents take with a grain of salt and figure out on their own. Every baby and parent is different and what works for some, may not work for others. We all do our best for your little ones and that’s what makes us and them unique in the end.:)
