Let’s face it, our kids won’t be little forever; the only true way to preserve memories of them is to capture their childhood in photos. Luckily, these days, almost everyone has a smartphone that can snap a quick shot. But tackling the family photo, the perfect newborn shot, or even the picture for the holiday card requires skill, and equipment that a cell phone camera just can’t match; and not to mention require a lot of patience too! The photographers listed below are all local professionals, many who are Long Island mamas themselves.
These multitalented photographers offer a variety of packages at prices to fit almost every budget. So be sure to check out each business’s website to assess their style before booking…oh and don’t forget to SMILE & SAY CHEESE!
