Fall Family of Five

On the eastern end of Long Island is a wide assortment of parks, camp grounds and golf courses. Many photographers collect in popular locations with wheelbarrows of props for fall sessions, maneuvering through paths and foliage to get to the best locations where they photograph their clients.

I don’t have props. While I love the look of some of the images that result from creative additives, I’ve been fortunate enough to have families that know how to both dress and pose themselves in order to be the center of attention. This family was such a family.

While situated in front of a beautifully soft rolling background of green autumn grass, this family posed in color coordinated - though not matching - clothing that both represented their personalities as well as set them apart from the typical family. I wish I could hire this mom to give you all tips on your next session! I’ve never seen pink work so well in a fall setting, and I would love to pick her brain on what her thought process …

"I have no idea how she does it, but Adrienne Brand gets the shot every time!"

Call it my relentless need to get the photo that my clients are hoping for – I happily trail my client's peanuts until I get their perky little faces "on film." I've known this little lady since she was just a baby, and now she's running like a champion. We poked around the grounds of the Cutting Arboretum on Long Island until she tired herself out, stopping by a tree to poke at some "chachkies."

You can't get moments like these back, and I'm so honored to be a part of her life. Welcome to Willow's 2016 Fall Outdoor Portraits!
If you know Willow, tag friends and family to the image so they can see all her shots!

Voodoo Jungle Band

Voodoo Jungle Band is a premier cover band that plays across Long Island throughout the year. If you were lucky enough to catch them on September 30 in Williston Park, New York, I'm sure you enjoyed a great show. Check out their calendar online at and meet me at the next gig!
