Sunkin Meadow State Park Family Session | Long Island Photographer

My husband and I moved to Raleigh, NC almost two years ago.  However, many of you may not know that I actually grew up in New York, on Long Island.  My whole family is still there so we travel back up a few times a year.  It's always so much fun to be able to shoot in my home town when I come up to visit family, and this time it was an extra special session!

Cara and I were best friends in High School.  We shared in all our teenage ups and downs and our little group of friends had such a great time together.  As with most high school friendships, life brought us all our separate ways and distance and time eventually caused us to drift apart.  However, there is always a special place in your heart for your childhood friends, and whenever we do get to see each other, it's like nothing has changed! <3

I was so lucky to get to photograph Cara and her beautiful little family when I went home to Long Island for a visit a couple of weeks ago.  Her and her husband are such a cute couple and they created the most adorable (and spunky!) little girl named Hannalee.  We had so much fun shooting their session at Sunkin Meadow beach!

After sending her their gallery, I received to most beautiful message from her thanking me for the photos and telling me how much they loved them.  It's things like that which are the reason I do what I do.  Hearing her all choked up over these photos made my heart happy!  I have the best job in the world!

If you're on Long Island and are interested in a session with Lauryn Alisa Photography, please let me know!  We can set something up for the next time I'm up there!
