Prepare for cuteness overload! This weekend I headed out to Long Island City to photograph a lovely couple and their absolutely adorable 4 month old husky puppy, Maverick! I couldn’t wait to share some of the photos from this shoot because Maverick was not only so much fun to photograph, but a highly photogenic pup to boot! As for the location we made great use of Gantry Plaza State Park, located right on the water in Long Island City, Queens. It’s a beautiful spot with incredible views of lower Manhattan. Now onto the cuteness!
I love superheroes. Always have, always will. When I’m not working on my photography I still love to sit down with a good comic book. So I recently sat and thought, what better way to combine two of my favorite things than to photograph superheroes!? So I’m happy to announce an ongoing series in which I hope to create some really great photos of various heroes. And I’m starting things off with…
I was inspired to create this Aquaman composite from a photo I took at New York Comic Con in 2012. This is by far the best Aquaman costume I’ve ever seen, so I felt it needed an appropriate setting without all the background clutter of the con floor. He is the king of the seas after all!
Here’s a little preview from a two year old birthday party I photographed this past weekend!
Adorable little Lucy celebrated the big *2* with her mom, dad and older sister, and a bunch of family and friends!
They made excellent use of the Gymboree Play & Music space as they climbed, crawled, jumped and slid on all the great play objects. Then it was pizza and cupcake time which did not disappoint!
Happy birthday Lucy!
Here is a photo I’m very proud to be showing after quite a lot time of work!
What you see here is the Haleakalā Observatory in Maui, Hawaii. The photo itself is a panorama stitched together from 9 photos which in turn were made up of 27 separate exposures.
At an elevation around 10,000 feet the observatory sits atop one of the highest points in Maui and as you can see, rises even above the cloud cover. It was one of the most amazing spots I’ve ever been in my life, and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you!
As was mentioned previously I showed some of my photos in the recent HPA/OVEREXPOSED photography show in Ashawagh Hall, East Hampton, N.Y.
The show was wonderful! I had such a great time showing my work and meeting and seeing the work of other very talented photographers. The turn out for the event was great and I even sold one of my photos! I want to send a big THANK YOU out to Hamptons Photo Arts and Framing for sponsoring the event and Laurie Barone-Schaefer for putting the event together! Here’s a couple of photos from the event:
A Glyn Dewis Inspired Self-Portrait…
I recently discovered the work of UK photographer and retoucher, Glyn Dewis. Part of being a good photographer is always seeking out the work others have done for inspiration. Another part is using what you find and like to practice new skills to hone your own style.
Glyn does a lot of amazing work, but some of his stuff that’s most fun to me is his cartoony style portraits. So a few days ago I gave it a shot and did similarly styled self-portrait. It came out a little goofy (which is good), and my wife says scary, but I really like it nonetheless. I’d really like to do a set of these in the future with some wacky characters. What do you think?
A Facebook Milestone…

I’ve had a little extra time lately to put some work into the site, so it’s been slightly revamped over the old version. Mostly the changes are little fixes and pretty-ups here and there. However there has been some bigger changes, for example all new portfolio galleries. I have changed the system over to be a side-scrolling gallery with much larger image thumbnails and the ability to click on any photo to see a larger version. This is something I’m really excited about as it’s now much more user-friendly and really showcases my work nicely.
The other big change is a revamp to my logo. While the “Pete Labrozzi Photography” text remains the same, I added in an extra colorful graphical element and my new tagline which I think sums up both my photography and myself nicely; “Vibrant. Fun. Photography.”
There’s also lots of little functional changes, like the little icons on the bottom right which link to my Facebook Page, Twitter Feed, and many more. So please feel free to join me if you see the logo of your favorite social network! You can also now comment on any post using your email, Facebook or Twitter account. And share any pages or photos you like on those sites as well as Pinterest and many more.
There’s still more changes to come, but please check out the site and let me know what you think! And as always, thanks so much for stopping by!
I joined this newly engaged pair downtown at Battery Park the other day for an engagement photo shoot.
They were such a sweet couple and we got a lot of great shots at some fun locations around the southern tip of Manhattan.
Please join me in wishing them well as they prepare for their wedding day!

Question. What do you do when a nice photo of mom and dad is suddenly intruded on by a small yellow elbow?
Answer! Photoshop to the rescue!
After a bit of time I’ve restored the missing portion of mom’s leg, the rock and the water. No more distracting elbow! Photo saved!
God, I love Photoshop…
Just wrapped up on the edits for this shoot and thought I’d share this photo.
I really like this one. I’m a little partial because I love this fountain. But I think this is also a very sweet capture of mom, Susie and daughter, Savannah.

Well, it’s snowing like crazy outside thanks to the most recent nor’easter. So what better time to post this then?
Taken at Weed Orchards in Marlboro NY, this has me remembering fondly just a few weeks ago when there was significantly less horrible weather. Hopefully this photo will make you feel a little warmer too!

If you want a bright shiny moment on a seriously cloudy day, then nothing beats a fantastic photography session with an amazing family.
Meet Archie and his mom and dad! We rolled the dice and headed out to shoot despite warnings of rain and got lucky! Of course I contribute a lot of the success to Archie who was not only a total ham when it came to taking photos, but his great expressions also have had me smiling ever since!
For this fall photo session we walked all around Fort Tryon park, which I can’t wait to go to again, especially in the Spring. But the Fall day treated us well enough and my little friend was a real trooper while we got some great photos!
It’s been a rainy weekend here in NYC, but Friday evening I got in a fantastic shoot with a wonderful family on an absolutely gorgeous evening!
Little Savannah, her parents and grandparents joined me in Central Park to capture some nice family portraits! Savannah was extremely cute and quite a spark-plug! You had to keep your eyes on her because she could really move, and move she did!
I love especially her little umbrella and a very lucky capture as she was chasing pigeons!
Instagrams September 2012, a set on Flickr.
Here’s my Instagrams for September 2012. They include photos from trips to Governors Island, The U.S. Open, Chinatown, and Margate N.J.
You’ll find some random ones of my pup Gus in there too!
My favorite for the month was "The Unisphere" from the World’s Fair in Queens, NY. You can see it here: flic.kr/p/d5rKbS
