Mable & Ada’s beach session – Port Jefferson , NY

I wanted to share Mable and Ada’s beach session on this gloomy rainy monday morning. The last bits of summer are slipping away and fall is in the air. Leaves are starting to fall and pumpkin everything has hit the shelves at stores. But lets go back to just a few weeks ago when I got to run around West Beach in Port Jefferson with these girls! I have been documenting these girls for almost two years now. I met Nicole while she was pregnant with Ada and did Ada’s Fresh 48 session. We’ve done so many sessions since then i’ve lost count! Nicole wanted to capture the girls at the beach playing and having fun, the weather was warm and perfect during our session and the golden light was amazing.

I love watching families grow and change over the years and I can’t wait to capture many more years with these sweet girls.

enjoy!

– Springtime front yard session – Port Jefferson, NY – Jessica Michelle Photo

Springtime is here and I’m so excited! I’m ready for the warm weather and to be outside enjoying the sunshine. All last week everyone in the house was sick, except for me, of course! So once everyone was feeling better on Monday we decided to venture outside and do an impromptu little photo session once the sun peaked out and the grass was still tall. I put Emily in these pretty pink velvet overalls that I had since the fall that I had planned on using for her birthday photos that we never got around to. For Edward we dressed him up in a charming blue button-down and jeans; he decided to add his cool plaid hat. It’s been a staple for his look for the past few months I think it’s pretty darling. Easton wasn’t feeling great so we only snuck him in for a few shots. I’m so glad we were able to capture some cute springtime photos even though not everyone was feeling great.

Enjoy!

These two fight like cats and dogs but are also the sweetest with one another – I can’t wait to see how Easton mixes in.

2017 California Favorites – Jessica Michelle Photo – Long Island Family Photographer

Again this October over the Columbus day weekend I had the pleasure of getting to go back to California from Long Island and see all of my favorite west coast families! This year a majority of the sessions I did were shot at China Camp Village in San Rafael. I can’t believe I had never shot there before! It was gorgeous and truly picturesque at all hours of the day.

It was so much fun to catch another year with all of these great families and meet a few new families too! I’m already thinking about and planning for 2018 – where I’ll have a new little assistant with me helping out, or just looking super cute. Any suggestions CA families on where we should shoot?! I’m thinking Stafford Lake in Novato, A Nicasio location or Cavallo Point in Sausalito – comment below and let me know what you think!

NOW here are my 2017 California favorites from the sessions that took place this year.

Ada’s Fall Themed 1st Birthday Party – Stony Brook, NY – Jessica Michelle Photo

Ada had her adorable fall themed first birthday party last month at Old Field Club in Stony Brook. Big sister Mable and her were dressed in rose gold and white coordinating outfits that were just the cutest! It was so fun to see how much Ada had grown up since her Fresh 48 session I had done when she was just born, Mabel too! Mom really went all out with the festive pumpkins and fall themed center pieces to the amazingly done cake that looked like a basket of apples. Ada had a great time celebrating her first year of life with all of her wonderful family and friends.

Addison’s First Year | Marin County Newborn Photographer | Jessica Michelle Photo

I have been long awaiting to post this beautiful girl. I photographed her whole first year from newborn to 3, 6, 9 months and one year with a cake smash! She was the best little poser one could ask for. So sad to see that they were moving to Houston the day after her first birthday session. She will be missed!

Radio Silence – Jessica Michelle Photo – Marin County Child Photography

Man how easily I had forgotten how hectic newborn life was … let alone life with a 2 year old too. Combine the two and you see where I stand. Slowly but surely things are picking up here and I’m finding my work flow. I want to make myself post here at least once a week with some beautiful shots from the work week. Stay tuned to see if I can keep up with that. He is past the newborn stage and already four (4!!) months so hopefully I can do it.

To keep you entertained for now here is some shots of Emily – my darling two and a half year old. Playing outside while said little brother naps. She has had this dress since she was 11 months old and wore it in her first birthday photos. At this rate she could wear it until she’s six as a shirt. She petite and lanky but boy does she make up for it with personality!!

Playing outside and doing her ballerina moves.

Until next time – Jessica
