New York Botanical Garden Wedding | Sarah + Jon

Its crazy to think that seven years ago my  husband and I started photographing weddings together, and that this past weekend we shot our last and final wedding. Its bittersweet since we truly love documenting such special day for our clients- our friends...but at the same time I am ready to focus solely on portraiture. What a fabulous way to finish off the end of such a chapter in our lives by capturing a new chapter in the lives of Sarah and Jon. Not only are these guys totally awesome, but their friends and family are too. Having so many special people supporting them on this day made it magical to watch. The gardens where in full bloom, the weather held out the entire time we were outside shooting and the results are breathtaking. Enjoy!

 

 

New Jersey Family Photographer | Matteo's 1 year shoot

Yesterday morning I met up with Matteo and his parents at Hamilton Park in Jersey City for his one year shoot. It seems like just yesterday I was doing maternity pictures for these guys, let alone his NEWBORN pictures!! Here's a little snippet in to our time together, I'm loving the color combo Matteo's mom picked out for their family portraits-very fun.

Album Love

I had to share my latest album before I ship it off to my client...it's handmade by a book binding company based out of los angeles called Cypress Albums. In my opinion, their products are the most beautiful, unique + artistic out there. However, since they are made by hand-they are also the most expensive...but its sooo worth it in the end. Every client that has opted to have a Cypress album made has been beyond thrilled with their decision once they get their hands on the albums (and I am always sad to let them go since they're so pretty!).

The Cypress album shown is also available for regular portrait sessions. You can create an album from any portrait session we've done together. If you prefer, we can make it a collaborative piece with portraits we've done throughout the year, or years. If you are interested in prices, please send an email.

Fun find: Style Inspiration

Last night I stumbled across a very fun clothing designer, TeenyBunny on Etsy. Her dresses for little girls are vintage inspired and like nothing I've ever seen before. The moment I saw the yellow dress (featured above) I felt the need to share some of her pieces with you. If you are considering booking a shoot this spring or summer, I really think one of these dresses would be amazing in pictures.

The dress (above) would look so sweet against an old white barn in the country --or at the Van Vleck house in the spring running through bright green grass. Even on the beach, with bare feet splashing in the water! If you want to make the dress look more casual, I think a pair of mid-calf black rubber boots would be adorable. To go directly to the dress listed above, click HERE.

The retro-style dresses (above) would work well in a city setting with yellow cabs in the background or on a simple cobblestone street in Hoboken. I'm so happy I found this designer and hopefully one of her dresses will help inspire you for your  little ones shoot!

New Jersey Family Portrait Photography | The Cavanaugh Shoot

New Jersey Portrait Photography

On Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot one of my best friends entire family at the place we grew up-Lake Mohawk in Sparta, NJ. When we showed up, it was misting out (not ideal for a shoot!), but within a few minutes a rainbow appeared and the rain stopped. The end results are totally fun, and I loved the color combo they chose, it's totally them!

Vivique Shoot

Last week I had the opportunity to work on a new clothing line  - Vivique (www.viviqueapparel.com).  They have designed the clothes to fit women before, during and after pregnancy. The best part of the bottoms is that there is no annoying belly band at the top of the pants. They actually look like normal pants, which expand and contract as you do. So amazing!  This way you can wear them as you grow, and after the baby arrives, they still will fit you as you slim back down. Their line should be available online and in stores this fall. In the meantime, here are some of the pictures I shot for their marketing campaign:

The shoot consisted of 2 pregnant models and 1 non-pregnant mode, showcasing how the exact outfits looked on both body types!
