Alaska and Long Island

Last night, I got to meet up with a beautiful couple, who call both Alaska and Long Island their homes.  We have known Ariana since she attended our youth group when she was in high school.  She and Shawn got married and moved up to Alaska for his job and it’s nice to have them back on Long Island when they come back to visit.  As they walked down the beach for our session, I had to stop them to capture a nice silhouette sunset shot.


In an exciting turn of events, Ariana’s pregnant!  So I got to capture what might be one of their first “family” portraits at our session.


The beach was absolutely perfect for our session last night.  I have a feeling that as the summer draws to a close, my beach sessions are getting more and more limited as far as nice weather goes.


But I’m so glad that I got to meet up with this beautiful couple and capture some special memories with them while they are back.  Thanks so much to Ariana and Shawn for a fantastic evening!
