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 being carefree! I want you to let your children be themselves and have fun. Cuddle and kiss them as much as possible so I can capture the love you all have for each other!

    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! 



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!!



Greg & Debra | Long Island Wedding Photographer | Shira Z Photography

It feels like I’ve known Debra and Greg for years.  I remember meeting them to discuss possibly photographing their wedding just after having my daughter. It felt like I was having coffee with old friends. Maybe it was their funny sarcasm, or our love for dogs, or the awesome story of how they met… Greg’s sister contacted Debra through Myspace telling her she thought she would be a good match for her brother and the rest is history!! Well that is the short version of an awesome story. I think their first date was a looong car ride to Florida, or from Florida. It’s so crazy, I love it.

We had a great time during their engagement session at The Planting Fields in Oyster Bay and their wedding at The Bellport Country Club was perfect.

Debra, I already miss all your wedding day countdowns on Facebook. Looking forward to the baby/due date countdowns;)

I’m trying out these new blog borders, aren’t they pretty??


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!
