2018 in Review

What a year! Although I didn’t post as much this year, it was another great year seeing previous and new families and children to photograph. As always, I am so very grateful for each and every one of you who support my passion even if you are doing it from the sidelines. I also can’t thank my family enough for their own patience and support throughout the year as I tackle my full-time work, motherhood, extra curriculars and this passion on the side.

I hope 2018 blessed you all in some way or another and if it didn’t, no worries, 2019 is ahead and I wish you health, happiness and prosperity!

See you in the ONE NINE!

See some photos below that were taken throughout the end of this year.

C Family Photo Session

Another beautiful day for a family photo session.  This was my first time meeting this family and it was lovely.  They have 2 beautiful girls who are happy as can be.
I hope to see them in the future again!


 

Family Photo Session

This trio is a happy one, always exuding a ton of joy and excitement!
The day was beautiful for an outdoor photo session and these kiddos showed it with those bright and wide smiles!


 

M Family Photo Session

An outdoor family photo session with a dog nearly my size.
It’s always great to see this family as they continue to grow and love each other more and more each year.


Summer Weather Fall Session

A trip to Bucks County, PA to take this beautiful family’s fall photos in summer temps.
At the end, the kids tipped me with small toys, some change, a Pokemon card and big smiles.   🙂

B’s First Communion

I’ve been around for a few years to watch this little girl grow and I am probably as happy and proud of her as her family is.
She looked so beautiful in her First Communion dress and I wish her and her family nothing but blessings!

O Couple Photo Session

When your dog is your first baby and you know that you just want to love her, hug her and dress her all up.  Fur babies are awesome.  You know what’s even more awesome?!  A love like the couple’s below, because through the good, the bad, the ugly and the funny, they’ve got each other’s back.  They know when to laugh, cry and be upset, but they do it TOGETHER!

May love continue to fill your home!

NJ Farm Shootout

A perfect Fall day to take photos at an NJ farm with some other fabulously talented photographers led to the product shown below.
Cannot thank Stephanie Lemmon and Mila Wells enough for the opportunity to participate in such an event.  This stylized shoot was fantastic.

Tooth #5

Tooth #5! I can’t bear it!  The tooth fairy is a frequent visitor of this house now and I am sure pockets are hurting.  🙂  To still see the excitement of putting the tooth under the pillow and checking under the pillow in the morning to find what special surprise might be awaiting is very exciting for me as well because I don’t ever want to see the magic of childhood disappear in this home.  Let’s see how and when we lose the next tooth…it’s loose as it is.JR-3010

Comfort of Training Wheels

 

Soon it will be time to let go of the training wheels, but right now she wants that support. Although, I want her to learn to go without the support on her bike, I know that this is extra time I have with her needing that comfort of knowing she is not going to fall.  When we move on to the next stage, there will be cuts, bumps and bruises along the way, but I know it will add character and strength to my growing little girl.

As she grows, she will know that I will be her training wheels until she is ready to spread her wings.  I have plenty of time before then and I am hoping to soak every last bit of her experiences in.  JR-2961 JR-2987 JR-2988 JR-2992 JR-2993 JR-2995 JR-2996
