Children Melt My Heart [Long Island Child Photography]

Today I had the absolute pleasure of photographing two little boys. Siblings. Two separate sessions to allow sufficient time to capture the personality of each.

The first one was a very cooperative 3 month old. We shot him in his baptism outfit and then we played! We attempted a baby cocoon but he was a little long for it…then we tried a petal mat – BEAUTIFUL!!! And then we show him in a simple diaper cover with a white background. LOVED IT!

So, some time later, after he’d had enough of being our little baby doll, mom took him home and came back with her 18 month old who was a pip! He ran all over the studio here and there, checking out my lights, pointing to each strobe and examining the softboxes (this one’s gonna be a photographer by the time he’s 4!) and occasionally he would sit or stand long enough on my seamless for me to grab a shot. But then we discovered something! Fruit snacks! They turned out to be quite a hit and he’d do just about anything to get another one, so I squeezed some shots in as he assured us that “YES! YES! YES!” he wanted more fruit snacks! Once he’d tired of moving this stool all around the studio, I got these adorable shots of him on it!
