Variety and Fun!

March 11, 2016

We entertain

and cajole

and jump

and giggle

and shhhh

and yell

and have so much fun in our photo sessions. It’s why getting a plethora of perfect images seems so easy. And why after a taking pictures in the studio, it’s impossible to choose.  I STILL can’t decide which are my favorites from this sibling session. And that’s narrowed down from my top 50 favorites.E_049025_150616_1_3.5x5_4a E_048802_150616E_048951_150616_1_3.5x5_2aE_048846_150616E_049010_150616 E_048979_150616
  It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

Soulful Sessions

September 2, 2015

We are so excited to announce our Soulful Sessions colorful mini-shoots, running now through September 12th! A fantastic way to commemorate the beginning of the school year.

These sessions are all about capturing your child’s inner beauty through our art. There is something captivating about the soft, innocent expressions we capture with our new studio styling.

Take a look and see what you think about these Soulful Sessions. We hope that you enjoy this new look as much as we do!

Julie Floyd, our Grande Dame, visited our studio recently. We couldn’t help but to capture a moment of her and her son using our new soulful look! What a pleasure to be part of a company that has a founder who we can call a friend. <3

Juno Who?!

January 29, 2015

So, I got a little restless when the big SNOWMAGEDDON  in NYC never came! I left the deserted studio, found a few friends who were sledding in Central Park and snapped some photos…

A photographer’s work is NEVER boring! Right?!

The rest of the photos (I took over a hundred!) are at the studio, so if you want to see the rest…call me! 212.396.1160  There’s a bonus if you order a print before January 31st too!

Here is a sneak peek of a few that I took. It was so hard to narrow down to JUST these.

Be Our Valentine!

January 14, 2015

The holidays are over and hopefully a CALM has settled back into your lives.  We love this time of year!

If you didn’t get a chance to take photos, and need a great excuse….you can do a special shoot for those you love celebrating Valentine’s Day!

E_072057_140923

We are doing 30 minute photo sessions including really cute mini Valentine’s Day classroom cards.  Only $150.00 (Extra subject fees may apply!)  There is also a special 20% discount for custom, full-sized Valentine’s Day cards to mail out. This ends Feb 1st, so call ASAP to get your spot.  We have only two saturday sessions left available! eek!

These two girls were the best sisters, and so photogenic.  They have such great personalities.

E_072236_140923 E_072219_140923

In even the shortest of sessions, there is still time to make artwork for your wall at home. I always encourage being in the photos with the kids.  You’ll be SO happy you did…even if it’s 20 years from now.  Like fine wine, the photos will get better in time. :)

Three generations of loveliness to make beautiful art.E_072208_140923

The End of Summer Girls

September 27, 2014

I’m always a bit wistful at the end of summer. It’s so hard to say goodbye to the wonderful weather.

It’s also really hard to see our clients grow up!!!!

We have known all of these little ladies since they were babies…It is amazing how the time flies.

Here’s a last look at some beautiful beach photos, to remind you all to enjoy every moment.

Free To Be Me

July 19, 2014

Being yourself is easy when you are a kid.  “The sky’s the limit!” “You can do whatever you set your mind to!” “Be true to yourself and people will love you!”  There isn’t any judgement. It’s actually rewarded!

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” – “A dinosaur hunter!” – “Ohhhhh…isn’t that great!”

“What a great painting! What is it?”

“I picked out my outfit today! Isn’t it cool?!”

We all grow up, and out of the ability to express ourselves whenever we FEEL like it.  Especially in the teenage years, our creativity in self-expression comes with labels and name-calling and sass.  Some of these feelings stay with us forever.

Classic Kids and PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center  are teaming up to help start the conversation that being judgmental starts early…and often.  It’s learned behavior.  It really is time to let our kids be THEMSELVES with just whatever that means to them.

Like this little girl who came to her photo shoot in her “bride’s dress” because her mom couldn’t talk her out of it:Fawcet_E_3set

Or this guy who wears his cape SO much that his mom needed it documented. Because, well, it’s HIM at this age:E_011894_140221

Or this guy who CLEARLY is going to be a firefighter when he grows up:E_066894_131031

Or our little princess who just HAD to have a princess party for her birthday:E_020793_140409screen

Or these guys who had a fun picture day at their school and got to pick out WHATEVER they wanted to wear:

SO….we are paying it forward.  Encouraging others to let their kids be kids! Mini Sessions for 195.00 and 100% of the session fee will be paid to PACER and we are having these fun shoots through August 31st! See the details below! I’d call soon, because we’ll be travelling a lot to the Hamptons for photo sessions, so our spaces are limited!

P.S. When I was little…I never EVER wanted to take off my leopard bathing suit. My parents still talk about it, fondly, even though I still remember getting into an argument about it (yes I was too big to wear it at that point)–so the suit was an epic moment in my life.  Here’s a pic of me and my big sister for your enjoyment:188498_1888349289257_5516396_n

Gentlemen Wear Hats

April 19, 2014

….and they look REALLY CUTE while doing it!

We love creating unique photos every day.  It would be terrible to have someone say, “I have that same shot!” so we always try to think outside the box here at Classic Kids to really show JUST how special your family can be.

e_044968_130906

 

Clearly this kid has STYLE.  He and his mom “get it” when it comes to having fun and being in the moment!  And, listen, when we hear that you love wearing a hat?!

We go with it!

Here’s one more photo to leave you with on this lovely NYC weekend day… just a cool Urban Cowboy, resting from his long day herding taxis and wrastlin’ with tourists….

Twin Photos are AMAZING!

April 10, 2014

Twins are so amazing.  You get a built-in best friend for life.  Lucky!!!!

Personalities come in all shapes and sizes…and twins give you a moment to stand back and really appreciate how quickly those personalities develop.  Believe it or not, these guys came in a little shy, but had each other to rely on!  Plus, Jenn, as the assistant was able to figure out their tickle spots pretty quickly. :)

With every great photo session here at Classic Kids, it’s just so hard to narrow down to my favorites.  That’s why a set of four is so much fun!!!! 4set_1
