Baby Margaret Lifestyle Newborn Session

After Margaret’s newborn session I felt as if I were indoctrinated into the family.  Within this family/friend unit I have photographed 3 of their babies, one extended family session and will be shooting a wedding this month!  Every single person I have met belonging to this group of people have been the most open/heartfelt individuals.  I am so lucky that they chose me, I feel like I won the greatest prize to have them as my clients!

Baby Margarets mom Liz contacted me about shooting her newborn session, she wanted to be able to capture all that newness in a relaxed setting and in their home where they started their family.

Baby lips and toes ❤

I love to get different angles and natural expressions and these guys did not disappoint.

Black and white and full of love

A special request, momma reading Jane Eyre to Margaret.

Happy Holidays! // Long Island Family Mini Sessions

Happy Holidays everybody!

Since I’ve gotten a bunch of cards in the mail, I’m guessing it’s safe now to post a few from my holiday mini session weekend a few weeks ago!  So glad we got them in while it was still nice out!

I’ve photographed these 2 since their parents wedding back in 2010!  I love seeing them growing up and getting more and more gorgeous!tricia-laponte-photography_162 The R family, first time in front of my camera!tricia-laponte-photography_163 The Campos Clan!  I shot their epicness a their house and around Huntington Village a few years agotricia-laponte-photography_164 I had the opportunity to shoot the D Fam last year when this little fire ball was just a few months old! Can you even stand her cuteness and pigtails?!!tricia-laponte-photography_165 Oh yes, the Morgans!  Sweetness multiplied. tricia-laponte-photography_166 And finally the V duo!  flying high and having a blast at this new location in Garden City!tricia-laponte-photography_167

Here at TLP I’m primarily a wedding, (and recently a lifestyle newborn photographer) I only offer mini sessions once a year, for one weekend, to ensure everyone has time to get their holiday cards.  I love giving this opportunity to families who wouldn’t ordinarily get family photos to have a shortened session at a discounted rate. If you’re interested in being on the mailing list for next year shoot me an email at

Amelia // Long Island Lifestyle Newborn Session

Lifestyle newborn sessions are one of my all time favorites.  Possibly because I can relate with the stress and exhaustion since having one of my own, and also because babies are so squishy and cute I can’t believe part of my job allows me to snuggle them and capture these fleeting moments that pass so quickly.

Mer and her family are friends and neighbors of ours, their son and my son are best friends…they share of love of Thomas the Train like NO OTHER!

But quite frankly, I don’t know if I can be friends with someone who looks this gorgeous after giving birth 😉tricia-laponte-photography_085 Oh Lo, you are such an amazing big brother ❤tricia-laponte-photography_086 Baby.  Details. Love.tricia-laponte-photography_087 tricia-laponte-photography_088 tricia-laponte-photography_089 tricia-laponte-photography_090 tricia-laponte-photography_091

Congrats you guys!  And thank you for letting me capture this amazing moment in your lives ❤

Annabelle // Long Island Family Session and Cake Smash


When one of your friends has a baby who has first birthday, you gotta smash the cake!

I got to hang out with the M family for a bit to capture the littlests first cake smash and a few family portraits.  Some people might think, ooooh 3 year old twins AND a 1 year old…that’s a challenge. Me?  LOVED IT!

The twins are spunky and smart, and Annabelle is just a ball of sweet mush ❤


I did get the “everyone look at the camera” photo as well…but this is real life and I love it and them. tricia-laponte-photography_070tricia-laponte-photography_071 tricia-laponte-photography_072 tricia-laponte-photography_073 tricia-laponte-photography_074 tricia-laponte-photography_075

S Family // Extended Session // Long Island Family Photographer

I got a last minute S.O.S from Emily for an extended family session at her in laws house…because everyone was flying in from EVERYWHERE and they had one shot to fit it in!!

I’m so glad I was able to capture this family all together since they live on opposite sides of the country 🙂
