A few weeks ago I made my way out to Robert Moses beach on Long Island and even thought it was a bit of a ride it was sooooo worth it. I had never been out there before but believe me I have made it out there since. Joe, Jasmine, Violet & Luke have made an appearance on my blog when I photographed their holiday session (you can see it here). So naturally when they wanted to do a family session to celebrate their little guy's first birthday, I couldn't resist. The session was a dream! Violet is a great big sister! She has such a big heart for her little brother and has a thing for narwhals, which we tried to find with no luck (but we did spot a bunch of deer on our way back to the parking lot!). Luke is a little ball of energy with lots of personality and constantly needs running after. I really enjoy photographing this family and I love getting to know them a little more each time I do! Here photographing more milestones in their lives! And if you want to see more beach photos, stay tuned for a gorgeous maternity session that I'll be blogging soon!
