When people get in touch with me to photograph a first birthday session for them, it usually involves cake and a toddler. This session, however, was going to be a little different! Karen got in touch with me to photograph her dog Schatzie's first birthday! She wanted to get photographs taken with her and her daughter Kayli! We decided to hold our session in Port Jefferson because it's close to both of us and such a dog-friendly town. We started at the park on the harbor and worked our way down to the dog beach next door.
Schatzie is a beautiful German Shepherd and she was very well-behaved for a young pup! She had a ton of energy and was up for anything we asked of her. She even let her mom tie balloons onto her collar for some festive birthday photos. She was also happy to share the spotlight for some photos with her family on the beach at the end of our session.
Here are some of my favorite photos from Schatzie's big day!
This is the part of the blog post where I usually say "Book your session with me today! Email me blah blah!" BUT unfortunately I'm not taking sessions at the moment. Due to this crazy pandemic, I'm not allowed to shoot sessions for clients right now. It's been a really rough go not being able to work and I would love nothing more than to get back to serving my clients and photographing the babies and furbabies of Long Island. I really wish I could tell you when I could get back to booking sessions, but I have no idea. All I can say is I'm so looking forward to getting back out there and capturing memories for you. What I can tell you is I have gift cards available. If you've been wanting to book a session with me and you have that government stimulus check burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to purchase a gift card to use at your next session. You can purchase in any amount starting at $15.
I hope you're all staying safe and healthy out there!
