Earth & Skye Photography | Long Island, NY Family Photographer bio picture
  • Welcome to Earth & Skye

    I'm just a girl with curls that lives on Long Island. I have two scrumptious boys, four chickens, a frog and a cat. You can always find me either with my camera or in my garden or cooking. I like to keep things really simple and laughing is top priority. Mr. Earth & Skye is the rock behind it all. He may poke fun at all my craziness but when it comes down to it, he supports everything I do. I couldn't ask for more than that.

    We live a peaceful, happy life and welcome you to a little piece of it.

Favorite places to shoot? | Long Island Child Photographer | Earth & Skye Photography

I’m always drawn to the light, the smell of lavender, and the calmness and sometimes craziness that goes on in the tub.

A place to zone out.


Role play.


Make up stories upon stories.  Some silly and some interesting.

I see such an enormous amount of beauty in my children.  They have hearts of gold you see.


Is there a spot in your home that you are drawn too?  Is the light just right at a certain time of day? You don’t have to be a pro photographer to answer this.  Everyone sees but do you actually look.

I challenge you:  look around your home and see what looks beautiful.  Share it with me, I’d love to hear.

When walking into this couple’s home, I knew immediately that we were going to have a great session.  They were warm and comfortable and made me feel completely welcome.  We incorporated his love for music into some of the shots and then strolled in the local park afterwards to complete our day.


If you wonder what a session is like… is me, coming over and laughing with you guys for a couple of hours.  It is light, fun and easy.

In the end, you get photos that you will treasure forever.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.      - John Muir


Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.      - John Muir


The power of imagination makes us infinite.      - John Muir


A much needed walk in the woods with my little one.  Three days till Spring and I’m feeling rejuvenated just thinking about it.


2014 is here | Long Island Newborn Photographer | Earth & Skye Photography

New year

New beginning

New inspiration…

The boys started back at school today.  Cubby came home with his new (getting ready for) Kindy workbook.  He is all excited!  I still can’t believe that this will be the year that two kids will get on the same bus in the morning.  Monsta is due to come home soon so that leaves me about 20 minutes to blog  a little.

Do I have goals for the new year?  Sort of.  I have plans for my basement getting a rework.  I have some things I would like to accomplish business-wise too.  Exercising and eating right is always a given.  I veer off the path but I get back on.

I made my first batch of homemade ice-cream this past weekend.  It was totally off the charts.  Dark chocolate for the Mister.  He loved it.  There will be more of that for sure.

Cubby hasn’t napped for the whole two week vacation.  He just couldn’t last.  He decided the couch was his place today…

Darling, isn’t he?

Yesterday was also my first shoot of the year.  A sweet boy named Domenic.  Six days old and completely content.  He was a pleasure to photograph.


Have you given any thought to some new year goals?  Do you make your own ice cream?  I would definitely want to talk about that with you.  I just bought a vanilla bean from Fairway.  Never worked with one.  Vanilla with some fresh strawberries is my next flavor.


Metal Photo Ornaments | Long Island Photographer | Earth & Skye Photography

When we first started putting up a tree, I wanted each and every ornament to be special in some way.  Now, 8 years later, I love standing in front of that tree looking at all of our memories.  Whether it is a handcrafted owl I picked up in Maine for my son or the Walnut Santa I made in elementary school…..I love each and every one.

This year, Earth & Skye Photography is proud to announce that we will be offering ornaments and you know I will be hanging one on my tree.  Maybe even make it a yearly tradition.  Imagine….YOUR gorgeous photos hanging on YOUR tree or sprinkled around YOUR home?  You’re going to love them.


The most important part of the holidays is family.  Show them off.

The techy details:

Metal Ornaments are created using dye sublimation processing, they are waterproof, UV resistant, and manufactured from 100% recyclable metal. Currently available in five shapes.  Each Ornament is double sided, holes are pre-drilled, and a red ribbon is provided.


I just know they will become your holiday favorite!

Single ornament – $30
