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 hello@tricialaponte.com

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 ❤

The R Family!!

Oh HAIII!!

Two posts in one week!  It must be a Christmas miracle!

Speaking of miracle, after all the craziness of Hurricane Sandy, I miraculously squeezed some family photoshoot goodness into the schedule!

I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest had his christening.  I love to see families grow and how adorable the kids get.

I love the little lip thing, both brothers do it 🙂

mama love ❤
weeeee 🙂

LiAnna

So, yeah, is this little lady GAH-OR-GEOUS?  She shouldn’t need an introduction since I’ve been photographing her since she was born, (here, here, and here) but here she is!  LiAnna!  This time she wasn’t willing to sit in a basket, she wanted to RUN!
I let her do her thing and just tried to keep up 🙂

Six images down…can you believe that face?  Like a porcelain doll, and the last 2 frames, my absolute favs!

WOO!  I had a workout from this session but it’s always great to see that little face and how much she’s changed!
