Couples Portraits Sessions

Defining Imagery couples photography portrait sessions are so much fun! Jo Anne especially loves working with couples. She is amazing at creating beautiful, natural looking poses to showcase your unique relationship. Love know's no boudaries. It is beautiful and limitless. Diverstiy is to be treasured! Jo Anne has the skills to properly capture a range of skin tones, without overexposing the palest, nor losing detail in the darkest. She also is highly adept at gender-neutral posing with her gay and lesbian couples, who appreciate this rare ability amongst professional photographers.

On location around Long Island, in your favorite romantic places... on our beautiful beaches, in the lush green parks, or in her West Babylon photography studio, your couples portrait session will become a treasured memory, in itself, as well as the incredible photographs the two of you, in albums and artwork to adorn your walls, as "Your Life in Fine Art"(c)

Jo Anne is truly gifted at making people feel comforatable in front of the camera, enabling her to bring your inner beauty to the surface, even if you're  camera-shy or think you're "not photogenic"! Check out her simple steps that make this easy and fun for you!

Couples Glamour & Boudoir Sessions

There's nothing more romantic than gorgeous portraits that portray the bond between you and your sweetheart. Surprisingly, the guys really do get into these sessions! A Defining Imagery couples glamour portrait captures your relationship as "Your Life in Fine Art"(c)

All Dressed Up with Someplace to Go?

Headed out to a wedding or big social event and planning on looking gorgeous? It's the rare occasion you're getting him to put on a tie? Schedule your couples portrait session for the day of the big event and capture the two of you looking fab together! And as you see... "bad" weather can make for great images!

Couples Maternity Sessions

Maternity sessions aren't just for the mom-to-be, so don't be shy about including both partners! This is such an incredible step in your relationship. For decades to come, your child will be living with those images on the walls, and seeing the love between their parents who created them, as well as how much they were wanted and loved before they were even born!

Couples Boudoir Sessions

Not too naughty,  but definitely very nice! What a truly special way to pay homage your relationship. These gorgeous intimate masterpieces make the perfect decor to adorn your bedroom walls.  Surprise your partner with a session for their birthday, or as an anniversary gift. You'll both be looking and feeling so amazing, you'll be ready for a night on the town afterwards, to celebrate the occasion!

Valentines Portraits

Not that you need an excuse for an occaison or holiday to schedule up your couples portrait session... but if you do, a gift certificate for a couples portrait is the perfect Valentines Day gift to say, "I love you!"!

Sneak Away from the Kids!

Doing a family portrait session? Bring Grandma along to watch the kids, so we can get in a bit of alone time for the two of you! Then we can even create some 3-generatioal shots with you, Mom, and your children, and also some "Grand-ma & Me" shots of her with the kiddos! Now that's a great way to make the most of your session time!

Portraits on the Beach

As a photographer, there's just something so special about doing a couples portrait session on the beach! Long Island's beaches are absolutely gorgeous, and endless! Throughout Nassau and Suffolk, on the north shore or the south, there are countless opportunities to create beautiful images of you and your special someone. So playful... so romantic!

Portraits in the Park

If formal studio portraits aren't your style, we can shoot your portrait session in the park, on the beach, or anywhere that suits your relationship and tells a little about your story together.  Posing too, can be much more casual, candid and even photojournalistic, if you'd like. It's all about you!

Same Sex Couples Portraits

Jo Anne loves working with same-sex couples, and her gay and lesbian portrait and wedding clients are thrilled with her amazing images that capture the essence of their incredibly special bond. Love knows not the boundaries of ethnicity, color, nor gender, and there is nothing more beautiful than letting that love shine!

BFF Forever Sessions!

Celebrate your most treasured friendships with a Best Friends Forever photo shoot! Elva and Christine have been friends for 40 years. And although Christine now lives in Florida, the girls still skype every day. This session meant so much to this inseparable duo, that Christine was willing to travel all the way here just for the session! Who is your bestie? You don't need to wait 40 years! LOL!

Anniversary Portraits

It's not uncommon for a couple to have not been professionally photographed together, since their wedding day. It would be a beautiful thing to mark each wedding anniversary with a couples portrait, but few think to do so. However, the significant milestone anniversaries are the perfect time to celebrate with a session! Every 5 years would even be nice, but certainly each 10 year milestone is something special to celebrate  - not just the 25th and 50th wedding anniversary.

The Perfect Wedding Anniversary Gift!

Silver and golden anniversaries are wonderful opportunities for the couple to recieve an anniversary portrait gift certificate! It makes a great group gift when all their children chip in, or even make it really special gift from all the grandchildren! We can even include the whole familin in on the session!
