All the wonderful mommas – Mother’s Day 2017 – Port Jefferson, Long Island NY Photographer

I wanted to share some of my favorite images of mothers that I have captured over the past few years. They are the reason for why I do what I do! From maternity mommas to be to seasoned moms of many.

I asked a couple of the moms what they loved best about being a mom and got some wonderful responses. For me its the never ending love and affection from them no matter what – even if I have been “mean mom” they always love to love on me. Im never without a big or kiss or snuggle every day. More answers below from some of the beautiful mommas I’ve captured.

Happy Mothers Day to all the mommas out there

Witnessing all the firsts. 
Watching the brain grow, milestones, developing

Tiny kisses and hugs full of love

The simplest answer, both the best thing and the saddest thing is that especially at this age, she wakes up a different person every day. More aware, more in control, more engaged, but less and less of my tiny baby. I can’t wait to see who she’s going to be tomorrow, but it sucks saying goodbye to who she was yesterday.

Sometimes I even get to photograph grandmas with their sweet grand babies. 

It’s a Girl! – Fresh 48 Session – Stony Brook University Hospital, Long Island, NY

I met Nicole at my event back in August at our local baby boutique, Cribs n’ Bibs, and we hit it off right away. She brought in her beautiful daughter Mable and told me she was expecting in October. She love the idea of a fresh 48 session since they were still doing renovations on their house and it would be a mess for a at home session.

We were set and ready for her section date in October and she was not finding out boy or girl until the birth! Which is pretty exciting for everyone. I was away in Nashville doing a newborn session for a childhood friend and only expecting to hear from another mom due the previous week. When I returned home and was able to get to my email I saw that she had emailed me – she had gone into labor on her own and IT WAS A GIRL. I was able to shift some things around on the calendar and get to the hospital the next day. There I met baby Ada – alert and absolutely as cute as a button. Aside from my two very wild children I had never had such an alert baby – let alone one that was 3 weeks early and only 29 hours old! After a little time with just Ada big sister Mable and Dad arrived. I just adore how this session turned out. long-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-yorklong-island-fresh48-lifestyle-newborn-photo-session-stony-brook-hospital-port-jefferson-suffolk-county-new-york
