New Jersey Family photographer
Although I am missing the snow, this weather is rather ideal for portrait sessions outdoors. Yesterday I met up with 3 super cute boys for a shoot at Frelinghuysen Arboretum. They were able to explore and run around and in between we got some great photos. Enjoy!
This weekend we headed up to Rhode Island to ring in 2012 with our good friends. Since Sunday was such a nice day, we decided to go outside and take some family photos. What perfect timing since their baby boy just turned 1!
I must admit, sixth month baby shoots are a favorite of mine. The babies are always so alert and smiley, they can usually sit up on their own...and you just can't get a bad shot. I think this shoot with Abigail is proof enough, and her cute little face makes it hard for me to not smile!
Today I met up with Charlie Keene and his parents at Allaire State Park for an outdoor session. We lucked out with some really pretty light and mild temperatures...60 degrees in December! We had a great time exploring the park and we finished off with a giant birthday cupcake. I'm in love.
Today I met up with Xander (4 months) and his parents for his holiday portraits. I feel like the luckiest girl because I always get to shoot the most gorgeous babies, and today is proof of that. We did some holiday looks and then some every day looks. Hope you enjoy!
Yesterday afternoon I headed outside for a holiday portrait session with Lexi and Brielle. We had such a gorgeous afternoon- and the colorful leaves added the right touch of autumn fun. Enjoy the preview!
Last night I met up with Luke, William and Matthew for their yearly portraits. We decided that a beach setting with cozy sweaters and rubber boots splashing in chilly waters would be really fun. The choice of clothing and colors add a classic, yet soft feel to the photos. Here's just a sampling, so many to choose from...hope you like my selections!
Here is my latest shoot with Sophia (2 years old) and Tavey (10 months), these 2 worked it like professional models in front of my camera. I was so grateful to have another nice day to shoot outdoors, and the outfits these guys wore really worked beautifully against our surroundings. Enjoy the cuties...I bet you'll be smiling as you look at the shots, their smiles are contagious!
Last night I met up with an old friend to photograph her family. We decided to use Trump National Country Club as the backdrop for her shoot...figuring the green grass would really pop against the bright colored outfits everyone was wearing. We had an awesome time together and I think we got some really great results. Enjoy the sneak peak!
Last night I met up with Noah, Josh and Natalie for a sunset photo shoot. The moment I saw these guys (and their parents) I was super excited. I loved how their mom styled everyone in summery, fresh looks. As I scouted their yard for a place to shoot, I noticed a beautiful field across the street that was being lit by the setting sun....so obviously we HAD to use that as our backdrop! In the end, I am very happy with our results...enjoy!
Yesterday afternoon I met up with Brad, Colleen and Bridget for a fun shoot in their backyard. I've been photographing them for the past few years-and its really pretty cool to watch the progression of them as they grow and change. Love hangin' out with these guys!
This morning I met up with Noah and his parents for a shoot on the water in Hoboken. It was a pretty cool setting, the fog was laying thick on the river, making the skyline look like a hazy and muted color-scape. The greenery in the park had a rain forest vibe too, which was neat. We did a full lap of the area before the rain started to fall, and in that time frame Noah was able to explore and play and we got lots of great pictures. Enjoy!
Today's family shoot with my very good friend Becky (we've been bestie's since 2nd grade) and her brother and mom. Becky is in town from Colorado and her brother is in from Florida - aka - the perfect excuse for a family photo shoot! We headed down to Lake Mohawk in Sparta, a place that has tons of good memories for everyone. I was so happy that the rain subsided, and we were able to get lots of fun pictures. Enjoy the preview!
Today I met up with an awesome couple who's wedding we shot back in 2008. It was great to see them again, and to meet their adorable baby boy. He was such a happy little guy, posing and rolling over and laughing away. Here's a little peek in to the time we spent together....
The other day I met up with Jemma for her first photo shoot. She's only a few weeks old and has the most beautiful big blue eyes (just like her mom). Not only was it fun to meet Jemma, but I also got to visit with her older brother and sister (twins!), whom I have been photographing since they were newborns. Its really something special to watch my client's families expand and grow, and an honor to be the one photographing these special milestones. Enjoy the preview!
Yesterday I headed down to Hamilton, NJ to visit good friends + to photograph their beautiful twin boys. Its crazy to think that it was over 2 years ago, we were doing their newborn portraits. The park we took pictures at yesterday was super pretty, I was shocked at how many flowers were in bloom (definitely more than up here in Hudson County!). Here are some shots from our time together....
Today we headed north to hang with some good friends and their 2 beautiful kids. I brought my camera "just in case"....but who am I kidding, I can't resist taking their picture! So we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful day, and I snapped away. Here are some shots from our time together...
Today I met up with Mason and his family for his 1 year shoot. The day was perfect, not too cold and not too sunny. We were able to get lots of happy, natural smiles and I'm loving everything I've looked at from our time together.
I can't believe that it was this time last year he was just born and we were scheduling his newborn shoot. Happy birthday!!
Yesterday, I woke up and had the urge to do a shoot with shades of pink against turquoise skies. I was heading to Sparta to visit my family, so I thought I would email my friend who lives in town that is an artist. I knew if I told her my initial inspiration she would come up with something special, and she did. Unfortunately, it was so cold and the snow was covered in a sheet of ice, so we only lasted outside for about 15 minutes. But within that time we laughed and froze and I was able to capture what I envisioned.
