New Jersey Family Photographer | summer fields

This morning I met up with William and his little sister Julianne for their summer portraits. We were a little worried with the weather, but mother nature was kind and we managed to get some amazing pictures. The simplicity of the color palate mixed with their beautiful faces makes me so excited to share!

 

 

Connecticut Family Photographer | family fun with Alexander

My last shoot of the day was with Alexander and his parents. The special thing about this shoot, was that I photographed his parents wedding 7 years ago. Catching up, meeting their baby boy and talking about life was really a wonderful way to finish off the Connecticut spring portrait day. Its always an honor when I get to document these special milestone. Thanks for the fun, guys!!

 

Connecticut Family Photographer | Ruby and Tyler

Today was my Connecticut spring portrait day in Stamford, CT. What a gorgeous morning we had! My first shoot was with these two adorable twins. Its crazy to think an entire year and a half has gone by since our last shoot...so many changes have taken place. Between their personalities, smiles and toddling- I was in picture taking heaven!

 

New Jersey Family Photographer | Cherry Blossom Beauty

We headed to Branch Brook Park, in Newark NJ the weekend of the cherry blossom festival. My intention was to photograph my daughter for her second year birthday portraits at this park. I figured it would be a nice way to celebrate the season she was born in, plus pink happens to be her favorite color. So we packed up and headed out at sunset (a very bad time in our house considering we have a 2 year old and a 6 month old). But we went anyway because I'm a photographer and I needed to get the best shot. Scarlett was a difficult subject to say the least. I was sweating and bribing her with everything I had. In the end, the bubbles kept her mildly entertained and I was able to capture a few shots I love. But when I got home and looked at them all, I though she just looked "off." Turns out she was on the brink of a very bad cold. So all I see when I look at her face is a sick little girl. But still, the lighting- the dress- the trees- are too breathtaking. I'm compelled to share! Hope you enjoy this little snippet in to my original idea for her "second birthday portraits."

New Jersey baby photographer | Charlie at 1 year

Today I met up with baby girl, Charlie. A whole year has passed since we saw each other, and what a personality this little lady has! We chose to do the shoot at Branch Brook Park since the cherry blossoms are finally in bloom. What better than to celebrate her birthday while capturing the seasons blossoms, right? So happy with the outcome!

 

 

 

Connecticut Family Photographer | fun in the garden

This weekend I met up with one of my favorite families for their annual portraits. Love spending time with these guys, and I was so touched that they were willing to drive to ME this year since I'm pretty pregnant and a trip to Connecticut would be a tad much. As always I'm loving their session and all of the wonderful memories we captured. Hope you enjoy my blog selections!

New Jersey Family Photographer | sunset in the spring

I believe my favorite type of shoot to do is an outdoor spring shoot at sunset. Last night was totally magical, the light was so amazing, and the colors of the grass made everything that much better. I had a blast catching up with these guys, the last time I saw them, their son was just a couple years old...and now he's so tall and has a little sister! Overall, I will say last night was definitely one to remember. Hope you love the pictures as much as I do!

Connecticut Family Photographer | Reese turns 1

  Over the summer I met with Reese and her parents for her 1 year shoot. Its crazy to think a full year has gone by already. Being able to capture her as she walked around and explored the arboretum was priceless. She's such a cutie pie. I couldn't resist posting these shots of her on the Adirondack chairs and the one of her with her parents swinging her. Truly adorable!

Connecticut Family Photographer | Mother's Day Gift

This past weekend I met up with some friends for a family shoot at Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford, CT. The shoot was a gift for mother's day, but we opted to wait until the summer was over and things were less hectic to schedule the session. The day was perfect, the grounds were in full bloom and I'm so happy with our outcome. Its a true celebration of family and fun!
