From smiling to swaddling to teething to crawling to walking; there are seemingly millions of little moments in a child’s life that go by in a flash.
Parents try to capture each significant second either with the semi-permanence of a cell phone camera or the fleeting nature of a mere glimpse — but some moments call for a professional’s touch, an inviting setting and an expert’s eye.
With her comfortable studio and lens talent to spare, Plainview resident and photographer Mindy Useloff-Milano captures the ephemeral flashes of a child’s life through I Hope You Dance Photography; her own business venture that started with the inspiring smiles of her own young children.

Famous American painter Georgia O’Keeffe was the topic of discussion at the Plainview Old-Bethpage Public Library on Feb. 20.
Members of the audience were given an in-depth look into the life and artwork of O’Keeffe through a self-made and researched lecture and slideshow by art appraiser Louise Cella Caruso.
O’Keeffe lived for 98 years. Within her lifetime, she was granted the Medal of Arts by Ronald Regan, and in 1938, she was selected as one of the 12 most outstanding women of the previous 50 years. When she passed away she was accorded the honor of a first page obituary in the New York Times.
