Because Girls Just Want to be Mermaids | Photo Session | Long Island | Shannon Lee Photography

When one of my favorite repeat clients contacted me and said that their daughter wanted a mermaid session for her 13th birthday I was all in. Long Island has so many different beaches, that I wanted to make sure I picked the perfect one for her magical birthday mermaid session. Not only did we get a beautiful setting and sunset, we also captured a beautiful double rainbow. What more could a photographer ask for? For a behind the scenes of the shoot, check out the video at the end.

Those blue eyes! They get me every time I capture her.

I captured a few traditional portrait, and then we let the magic of the mermaids take over.

 This one is one of my favorites because I used ninja skills and was teetering on the edge of a 4 foot rock to capture it. Her mom captured some pretty awesome behind the scenes shots of that. "You were everywhere and it was amazing!"

 It started raining which added some extra magic to our shoot. I just love the simple details, sometimes those are the best shots.
