I first met Juliette’s family when her mom was pregnant with her. Nina brought her son Owen and their family dog Bolt to the first pet portrait program I did with Islip Public Library. Nina and I kept in touch on Instagram and then the second time the program came around, Juliette joined them! By the time I met her, I felt like I knew her because I’d seen so many of her photos! She was just as smiley and happy at the program. When Nina reached out to me to shoot Juliette’s rainbow themed 1st birthday photos, I was so happy. I knew she was going to give me great smiles, and being the aunt to a rainbow baby myself, I was especially honored to capture these special memories.
Big brother Owen was so good posing with his baby sister. He’s had a lot of practice!
Then Dad joined us and we closed out the day with some family shots!
When Mom came in to the studio to see the photos, we did a few more shots of a onesie we didn’t get around to photographing at the park. Juliette is such a pro at smiling! I'm so happy I've been able to get to know this special girl and her family.

My friends Dina and Mike are having a baby! If you've visited the blog before, you might have seen their other babies (the furry kind) Sandy and Jack. The baby coming in October is a human one, though, of the little boy variety! My friends and I are so excited for these two, so we decided to throw her a baby shower to celebrate her and the new little guy we can't wait to meet! I, of course, was happy to photograph the festivities.
Here we go!
We had such a fun day and a very beautiful moment to cap it all off. At the end of the party, when Mike came to pick up Dina and their load of presents, we gave them a very special gift that our crafty friend Lauren had made. Mike's father passed away earlier this year and it was an incredibly tough time for his family. Lauren spoke to Mike's mother the week before the shower and picked up a shirt that had belonged to Mike's dad and made it into a pillow for the new baby.
There was a good deal of eye-drying after that.
I'm so happy for these two. They're going to make amazing parents. I can tell you for a fact that this kid is going to have a lot of laughter in his life, because Dina and Mike are two of the funniest people I know. Keep a look out sometime in October for his newborn session. I can't wait!!
