Cutest Cousins | Long Island Children’s Photographer | Shira Z Photography

Be prepared to see ridiculous amounts of cuteness in this post! You may recognize the little guy from my website and the contact page on my blog.  I can’t believe he is already 2. Mom wanted me to come photograph him with his sister for her 1st birthday and their gorgeous little cousin who was also turning 1. They are sooo cute together!! Seriously check out this first shot its one of my favs, little C amusing the ladies…

how much do you just want to pinch big bro’s cheeks!?

and their gorgeous cousin who had me cracking up throughout the session. She doesn’t crawl, she scoots her butt around with one hand like a little monkey. Cutest thing ever. She’s got so much personality,  just wait till you see some of her cake smash.. 

Look at my teeth!!:)

how gorgeous is she? love those eyes.
and the cake smash! A and C’s Mommy is a pastry chef so these lucky girls got extra lucky!!I had to share a few more great moments… 

Happy Birthday gorgeous girls!!! xoxo

These children are adorable! The little boy has the most yummiest cheeks EVER and the girls are super sweet. I absolutely love the blue eyed beauty and the shot of her against the grass. The last one looks like an angelic pose. Simply perfect and always impressed!

James & Justine’s Wedding Day! | Long Island Wedding Photographer | Shira Z Photography

An orange cake. A photo booth with costumes.  A candy table with goody bags. Masks at everyone’s seats and a pumpkin on each table. This wedding was Halloween heaven!! I was really impressed with all the little details they put together. Justine and James met on a blind date set up by Justine’s mom!!  Crazy right? And  apparently they both knew they found “the one” after their 2nd date! I love that story. They are really a great couple and its obvious everyone of their friends and family members felt the same. Everyone was so laid back and happy, it was an AWESOME party. Here’s a little sneak peak of the day.

loved her purple shoes!!

and matching purple birdcage veil!!

the gorgeous bridal party…

Groomsmen and the best woman!

check out the swords and wands the bridal party is holding…

The grooms sister made their cake topper and it is AMAZING, looks so much like them!

17 Months old! | Long Island Baby Photographer | Shira Z Photography

My baby is already 17 months old! I don’t know where the time went!! All anyone asks me lately is when I’m having another and I feel like I just had her, its insane. I haven’t really done a shoot with her in a while because she’s been so difficult to photograph since she started walking!! Well, today I got my new studio light and figured I should test it out and I’m loving it!! Now all I need is a studio and I’m set!! lol. One day hopefully. Anyway, here’s my Talia!!

I resorted to bribing her with a cookie, hey whatever works!!

she loves these ugly rain boots we bought at Target, I love this shot. 

my crazy lady!

her hair is at an in between stage so its usually a big mess. I can just put it into pigtails but she usually pulls them out within minutes!

a natural!;)

Daddy’s home! (and needs a haircut desperately!! lol)
