  • Well, hello!

    Thanks so much for being here! My name is Amanda and I love to take photos. LOVE. I actually love to deliver photos; to see the joy that gorgeous images can bring to people who love the people in their lives.

    I have 2 boys, who are the loves of my life (you'll see them here if you poke around enough). My husband, kids, cats Jemima and Fabienne and I live in Merrick, NY and never plan to leave.

    I shoot anything involving emotion. You will mostly see images here of newborns, kids and family, but I also love to shoot maternity, birth and small weddings/stylized events. I'd love to hear from you! Use the contact form (above or below) - I'm more than a little chatty.


Happy Birthday to Brian! • long island cake smash photographer • amanda saldarelli photography

I love seeing my cuties grow up! I haven’t seen Little B since his newborn session 1 whole year ago and I wouldn’t even recognize this little man! He is a DOLL. Brian came to the studio to celebrate his upcoming birthday. He gave me a few sweet smiles, but mostly when Mama and Daddy were verrrry close at hand. He didn’t love his cake. That’s okay! I felt so badly because his Mom really wanted him to go to town, but quite honestly, most baby photographers will tell you that cake smashes can freak the little ones out. Most of them don’t like it all that much. And while I hate to see my little friends look scared or sad, I have to say it can still make for some really cute pictures.

Happy, happy birthday, Little B! I can’t believe I’ll see you back in the studio in a few weeks when you become a big brother!!!

Happy Birthday to Aiden! • long island cake smash photographer • amanda saldarelli photography

The first time I shot this cutie, his tush (and most of the rest of him) fit inside a baseball glove. They grow up too quickly for me!! Aiden had a ball (geddit??) with his cake. His hilarious big sister was on hand for extra smiles (check out her amazing mani!) and their champ of a Mama hustled smiles out of these cuties the whole time they were here. Love these kids. Aiden, I hope your first birthday is a home run, touchdown and slam dunk all in one!
