Christmas!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my neighborhood, so my kids asked me for a “Christmas Magic Photo Shoot.” My sweet little angels have typical photographer child syndrome, meaning they absolutely hate taking pictures, but every once in awhile they ask for something specific, a “magic” picture, and they get so excited. I decided to post a couple before and afters for you to see.

I asked them what kind of photos they wanted. My son wanted a Santa image, and my daughter requested a silly image. So we put their Christmas pajamas on, grabbed the camera had started snapping away.

For this first image, I told them to point out the window to a specific part of the power line. Since they are 4 and 6, they didn’t do exactly as I said, but we made it work!

For the next image, I told them to pretend to make snow angels and then hopped on a step stool. I needed a super fast shutter speed to get these pictures, since they refused to lie still. They were flapping their arms and legs as fast as they could! At least they had fun!

If you live in or near Brooklyn, NY and want to schedule a magic photo shoot or Dream Maker Session, as I call it, contact me today! I love coming up with new ideas, plus the kids always love them!

Baby A – New York Newborn Photographer

I loved every second of this precious angel’s session. She was a couple weeks past her due date, but she was absolutely worth the wait! She was such a sweet baby. Check mama’s maternity session in October. ChrvalaLovewmChrvalaCollage1ChrvalaBlog-9ChrvalaCollage2

First day of pre-school – Orange County NY Photographer

It seems like just yesterday she was a tiny baby. These 3 years have flown by so fast! So, of course, we had to do a first day of school mini session for her first day of pre-school. This was just a quick 10 minute session; however, I think I captured all of her moods, serious, silly, happy, annoyed, bored, and sweet. Good luck sissy! I know you are destined to do great things!
