Shira Z Photography Blog bio picture
  • 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!

    Please take a look at around the blog and contact me with any questions.  My most recent work can be found here and on my facebook page. I'll also be posting updates, promotions, and tons of photos of my daughters :)   So feel free to check in every once in a while to see what I've been up to!  There's a comment section below each post where you can leave any questions, or thoughts on what you see. I'd love to hear from you!

Baby, let’s go! | Long Island Baby Photographer | Shira Z Photography

’cause we gonna rock this club,

we gon go all night

we gon light it up like its dynamite!’

I knew I loved this kid when mom started singing him Taio Cruz lyrics to get him to smile!! I was dying. Most parents tell me their kids favorite songs are the wheels on the bus but nope he wanted Dynamite. ha! It still makes me laugh. It totally fit him, this little 8 month old (or maybe almost 9 months) already had the biggest personality. His expressions were awesome. I can’t wait to photograph him again to find out what his new favorite song will be!

Here are a few favorites from our session at Point Lookout Beach. It was one of my last beach sessions of the year. The houses in Point Lookout are all really different and so cute and beachy. Their friend happened to have this cute yellow door on their house that I had to get in a photo…


look at this face!

definitely singing some Dynamite here lol.

Funny Face | Long Island Baby Photographer | Shira Z Photography

This little guy was the winner of my funny photo contest that I held over the summer. He is sooo cute and smushy. I’m always calling my daughter smushy mushy because I just want to smush her and I just got that feeling from this cutie. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see his famous funny face that day but his two teeth smiles definitely made up for it.

He had me at hello… 

I kind of love this

mom’s good friend came along to help make him smile, she did a good job!


Smushy!!!
