Hello! I am Claudette

“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”

For more than 10 years I have been capturing beautiful moments and freezing them in time for my wonderful clients in the Long Island area. Photography is my greatest passion and I treat every single client as if they were a member of my own family. Your photo session should be an enjoyable experience, one that you will remember fondly for years to come.

I love working with family and children. I have been working with families and children my entire life and I absolutely love doing it.

    • - I hold a masters in speech language pathology with a focus on early intervention and pre-school aged children
    • - I have been a dance teacher for more than 15 years – teaching children of all ages
    • - I teach musical instruments (including piano and violin) to children of all ages


I genuinely look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your family.

Services I offer:

Hello! I am Claudette, a passionate Long Island photographer. Life is full of beautiful moments and milestones, and my innovative and modern photography takes a natural, organic approach to capturing these moments. With more than 10 years of experience, I specialize in engagement photography, maternity photography, newborn photography, family photography and holiday photography. When shooting on location, I incorporate natural lighting and environmental elements to achieve my unique, artistic style, and elegantly capture the true essence of your special bond. For indoor on location studio shoots, I bring my top of the line studio lighting set up.

After exploring my love for photography as a hobby for years, I enrolled in a photography course and proudly launched a successful business. I have taken countless seminars and classes from the top photographers from all over the world and incorporate their teachings into my photography.

With more than 15 years of hands-on experience as a photographer, dance teacher, music teacher and speech pathologist, I am at ease working with families. I love taking photographs of almost anything, though I excel at creating a happy and relaxed environment for children during photo shoots.

When you select my photography services, I achieve beautiful, natural-looking images every time. I love capturing candid moments between parents and their children and between siblings which creates photographs that families will cherish for years to come. My photographs are relaxed and casual, exploring indoor and outdoor locations. Photo sessions can be held at the Long Island location of your choosing – including my photography studio and outdoor locations. I would like to invite you to learn a little more about my specialities:
