I'd love to hear from you! 



Pete & Ashley’s Wedding | Long Island Wedding Photographer | Shira Z Photography

I photographed Pete and Ashley’s wedding last month at Bridgewaters in downtown Manhattan. I really love this venue, it has tons of windows and a great view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Ashley was an absolutely stunning bride and Pete was quite the handsome groom. Last time I shot a wedding at Bridgewaters it was for Josh and Raji’s wedding back in August of 2009.  It was 90 degrees and sunny then, this time around it was snowing and freeeezing! Luckily Ashley and Pete toughed it out for a few outdoor photos. I love when clients are willing to suffer a little for better photos!:)Anyway, here are a bunch from the day because with weddings its so hard to narrow down…

Madeline | Long Island Newborn Photographer | Shira Z Photography

One of my oldest friends just had her first baby and I still can’t believe its a gorgeous little girl! I really thought it was going to be a boy since the last 2 babies in our group of friends were girls. The doctor kept telling her the baby was going to be big and she came out a huge 6 lbs 13 oz! ha. She was an angel. She slept the whole time and didn’t even poop or pee on anything!  It was sooo wonderful to see Mom and Dad so happy and in love with their little girl. It makes me a little emotional to think about it. Ja, you were born to be a Mommy, I’m so happy for you guys, and I hope our girls grow up to be great friends:) 

First Birthdays | Long Island Baby Photography | Shira Z Photography

A baby’s first birthday is a really special occasion so its no surprise I’ve been photographing a bunch of gorgeous one year old kiddies lately. I know I’m cheating a little by posting these all together but I figure its better than never posting them at all. I’ve photographed some of these cuties as newborns and being able to see them grow over the year is so awesome.  I love that I get to help these parents hold onto these moments that pass by way too quickly.

ooooh Teddy Graham lol.
