Communion Portraits on Long Island

February 24, 2024

The snow is merely in patches here on Long Island, Spring pops in a few short weeks, and then the race is on! To trim the garden (a very large tree fell) and make ready for outdoor portraits starting around mid-May. Though most (99%) of my clients prefer in-studio sessions when it comes to Communion Portraits; classic, formal, painterly... gorgeous = ).

A side note; January marked the 40th year since the studio opened in January 1984. I applied for the DBA for June Jacobsen Portrait the first day the county office opened after New Year's Day. What is it we often say? "I could write a book". = )

So, Communion Portraits! It’s the combination of great lighting, appropriate propping and background, excellent posing, and directing the expression of the child that produces images that are what I call… Wall Worthy, and not just 8x10s (or social media, yikes!). They are painterly, artistic, evocative; perfectly creating a piece of art to commemorate this milestone in your child’s life.

 

 

Most of my clients prefer the look and styling of in-studio portraits for this event. A few over the years have chosen to work out in the garden later on in Spring or Summer for a more casual look. Either is fine by me, and the outdoor sessions typically begin in late May, as the garden and greenery are coming into their own by then.

Please check out the Communion Portrait Gallery on this website for more ideas for your child's special occasion portrait!

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous Winter’s End!
