Communion / Long Island Family Photographer / Northport NY

A professional portrait holds a very unique value. It's not only about the beautiful piece of art that you get to display on your wall, it is also about the experience. A day you have set aside for your child. It's a day they will forever remember and treasure. At Zoot Shoot Photographers my goal is to get to know, understand and capture their true essence. Communion portraits are available in my Northport studio, Northport Harbor, at the Vanderbilt Museum, the Cutting Arboretum or anywhere you desire.

Sweet little Jillian

I love doing newborn portrait sessions, mostly because I love kids! The session was at the families home, and as soon as I walked in big brother Joey wanted to show me his magic tricks. I have to say he was pretty good at the Sword and The Stone. Although he showed me how he did it I still made sure I couldn't remove the sword. By the time I was set up Joey was ready to rock and roll and show off his new baby sister. And such a sweet little girl she is!

April showers bring May....

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Are you looking forward to the warmer weather as much as I am?

To be honest, I was convinced we would be basking in the sunlight by now,  but I’ve come to realize it was just a dream!  

Even though it’s not as warm as I would like, I am pretty confident that this Spring will end up being much warmer than it was last year.

Which brings me to...

May

May is one of the most beautiful times of year! I have a bunch of photo shoots scheduled for the Harbor and surrounding parks as we wait for the trees to bloom.  All of these shoots are taking place during the week because we are all too familiar with how crowded parks and the harbor can get on the weekends.

Since

Not all families can get together on a weekday, I have booked 2 all inclusive dates at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum.

The Arboretum is coming into bloom and May is the time to be there!

I’m looking forward to capturing you with all the new colorful blossoms that decorate the beautiful grounds.

Looking for the best family portrait to display proudly in your home?

You know the one that captures the love and dynamics and of course those special moments. Like a sweet whisper in your child’s ear or the loving embrace and giggle after you just shared a secret? It’s those moments that you want to embrace and keep forever.

Come meet me at the Arboretum!

We'll have fun and together we will capture those magical memories!

Communion / Long Island Family Photographer / Girl

Look how sweet this little girl looks.  We photographed her in the studio and did a few outside since the weather is shaping up.  This is the perfect time of year to get outside and embrace the blue skies.  Outdoor family sessions are so much fun!

Family / Long Island Family Photographer / Celebrate Motherhood

Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.”   ― Donna BallAt Home on Ladybug Farm

I found this quote and wanted to share and inspire everyone to hold onto these magical moments.   Happy Mothers Day!

Family Portraits / Long Island Family Photographer / Beach Sessions

All of the family portraits below were taken on the North Shore of Long Island at local beaches right around Northport.

 

Communion / Long Island Family Photographer / Boys

Here is a little guy that came in a few weeks ago for a traditional Communion session.   

Communion / Long Island Family Photographer/ Girls

There is nothing like photographing little girls all dressed up looking like little brides.  

Loving the new studio space.  It gives me the opportunity to take my clients outside and photograph them on the porch which has an overhang for those not so sunny spring days.

Capturing traditional and non traditional communion portraits gives parents more options.

Business Headshots / Long Island Headshot Photography

How many times have you said I need a new headshot or I need to update my online presence with a professional more current look.  Here are a few images of Lou Pagnutti, owner of Decks Unique in Commack.  He hired us to spend an hour with him at his location to truly capture his personality in his environment.  Corporate head shots are a great way to update the look of your website and your social media presence.

Let Us Inspire You / Decorating With Photography

While Jen & I were having our Tuesday morning creative pow-wow we started talking about "the final product".  We discussed how our clients absolutely love their images but get overwhelmed when it comes to choosing HOW they will display them in their home.   What usually happens is they leave the studio after dropping at least $500.00 on 8x10 and 11 x 14 print orders with no plan on where to hang them.   We have decided to make this process easier for you by starting to share pictures of wall displays that we could all have in our homes.  It just takes a little more planning.  The good news is,  we are here to help you! 

We created an inspiration board in pinterest.  Check it out...http://www.pinterest.com/zootshoot/portrait-presentation-ideas/

Look how you can use 1 large black & white photograph to fill the wall for impact.

How great is this?  Enlarge one great shot of each of your children.  Let each of their personalities shine!

Decorating with Photography

Creating the "Wow Factor"

I am in love with large photographs. I happen to be someone that believes “less is sometimes more” and when investing in professional photography, why not make an impact in your home with 1 or 2 large pieces that tell a story, as opposed to a bunch of smaller prints that usually end up in a drawer. I also know that those small prints add up in cost. It’s scary to go large, but what if you had someone holding your hand throughout the whole process, from start to finish. Wouldn’t it be so rewarding to see what could be created when clothing choices, location, mood, composition and color were all considered before the actual photo shoot?

Think of it as if you are hiring an interior designer to complete this daunting task. I know from my own experience after being in my house for 3 years I have a vision for my walls but to make that vision happen a commitment to the project needs to happen. I believe that we can eliminate the fear and the uncertainty that comes with committing to a large piece by offering an in home design consult even before you schedule your photo shoot. Trust the process, trust your photographer.

All you have to do is this:

1. Look at that empty wall you have been staring at for years and commit to making an investment to decorate it.

2. Call the studio and let us know you are interested in having an in-home design consult. 3. After that, we will create something similar to a “storyboard” that will incorporate the ideas we shared.

4. After approval, we will then schedule your photo session and start the process of helping you achieve our vision. Filling that empty wall that you have been staring at for years! Wardrobe, colors, mood, composition and home decor are all considered beforehand. This will ensure you are left with a custom piece of artwork on your wall.

The wow factor!
