  • Welcome to my blog! I'm Shira, I'm a wife and mom to 2 gorgeous little girls. I love to photograph spontaneous, adventurous families just having fun! I want you to let your children be themselves and have fun. Don't worry about whether they are behaving or smiling, just enjoy being with them. Life is stressful enough, I want you and your kids to enjoy your photo session!

I'd love to hear from you! 



Sweet Newborn E | Long Island Newborn Photographer | Shira Z Photography

It’s so crazy to me that I’m posting images of this gorgeous little girl. Her mom and I went to high school together and it had been years since we last saw each other.  It was so great to come together again at such an exciting time in her life and catch up!

I’ve actually been contacted by several people from high school and college recently to photograph their weddings, families, newborns and its really sooo nice to be there at these special times and capture these memories for them.

Little E was a great model. Mom was convinced she wouldn’t cooperate but we proved her wrong! I posted this first image on facebook after our session. I can’t take credit for the idea though, it was all her Mommy’s!

mush!

got a little smile from her here… 

Mom had to have some photos of her Christening dress. She bought this in Europe before she was even pregnant!! I can’t blame her though its really gorgeous.

I love how she is smiling for the family photo!!

Jill so good to see you again!!!!!:)

Brother & Sister | Long Island Children’s Photographer | Shira Z Photography

I thought I’d actually post one of the many family sessions I’m trying to edit in time for holiday cards! This was my first time photographing these guys. The kids were all about the camera for the first 10 minutes and after that they really made me work for their smiles. But thats ok because they are sooo cute!:)

Fun on Mom and Dad’s bed

their backyard had the prettiest leaves on the ground!probably my favoritethese next two make me laugh. Here J is listening for the ocean in his shell.. 

How freaking cute is she!??!

A little different | Long Island Children’s Photographer | Shira Z Photography

I know I have been majorly slacking with my blogging. Holiday season is rough!  I thought I’d do an all black and white post for a change. I love color so much I sometimes forget how much I love the simplicity of black and white photos. When I took my first photography class in high school, I thought black and white photos were the coooolest thing.  I think they tend to bring out the emotion in an image.

I’ve photographed this family several times already and this was by far the most difficult session! Probably because their son is 20 months old, their daughter is about 4 months, and we were indoors!!  And I thought photographing Talia was challenging!!
