2015 Recap (This was a busy year) | Long Island Photographer

2015, what a damn year! I feel so lucky to have booked more sessions this year than in 2014. It's really been a blast. Filled with lots of travels, meeting new faces, new challenges and successes. Even though getting this blog post together takes me a few hours, I love doing it every year! It makes me really realize how amazingly grateful I am to do what I do, and how lucky I am to have been able to see different places. I am so grateful for everyone who has given me the honor of photographing them in 2015, and can't wait to see what 2016 has in store! Happy New Years everyone! Grab a cup of coffee and relax while you scroll through the highlights of my 2015... it's going to be a while, filled of cats, travels, clients, and fun (some of which has yet to even grace the pages of my blog or website).

Holy macaroni, am I in love, love, love with this engagement shoot with Steve and Alicia. This one hasn't been blogged yet, so consider this a preview of some of the awesomeness yet to come. Can I please do more engagement shoots next year?! I have an idea that involves a park, multiple long exposures and some bioluminescent friends. 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-engagement-photography-0084 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-engagement-photography-Collage 20 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-engagement-photography-0087Here's a few more travels, adventure and fun.   2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-0050-22015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-Collage 282015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-0053-22015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00542015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-0055 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-0057 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00562015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00702015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00732015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00712015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00722015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-00742015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-Collage 21

I'm leaving you with this series of digital tintype photos. This project meant a lot to me and has a whole backstory to it. When I have a few minutes I'm going to write up a whole blog post with the process and the details of how I made these. 2015-recap-long-island-fine-art-portrait-photographer-Collage 30
