I was on a four year streak of doing pet portrait programs at the Middle Country Public Library, until last year (I think you know why we skipped a year haha). Even though the pandemic is not over yet, we're getting back to it with an outdoor program this Spring! On May 22nd from 11am-2pm I'll be photographing pets and their families outside in the library's Nature Explorium!
This year instead of first come, first served, photos will be taken by appointment. COVID-19 protocols will be in place, so please come wearing your mask and practice social distancing from others. Pets should be clean, well-behaved around other animal, and in a cage or on a leash to attend.
Get more info and sign up for your time slot here.
I'm so excited to be doing this program! Not being able to do photo events last year was a huge blow to my business. I really missed meeting so many pets and people. Hope to see you there!
Spring has sprung here on Long Island, even though most days it doesn't feel like it temperature-wise! I've been feeling more and more hopeful these days about the state of the world, even though we aren't out of the woods with this pandemic yet. I hope you're all staying safe and healthy and enjoying your Spring holidays! We're celebrating Easter here at Laura Pea Photography, so I brought my nephew Seth into the studio for some Easter photos. We didn't get around to taking them last year with everything so crazy at the beginning of the quarantine, so we were eager to do them this year!
I love photographing Seth, but as he gets older, I'm reminded more and more why I chose to specialize in newborns and pets. 2 and a half year olds are crazy little balls of energy and they don't fall asleep like newborns and they don't sit and stay like dogs! Luckily he still finds it funny when I pretend to sneeze a stuffed animal off of my head, so I was able to get some beautiful smiles out of him.
Here are my favorite photos from Seth's Easter shoot! (Wait until the end to see a behind the scenes shot of how the studio looked after Seth was done with it! 😂)
