A’s Bat Mitzvah Photo Session

What a beautiful day for photos of this lovely young lady as she prepares for her Bat Mitzvah!
The dress, the day and the girl were stunning.
I loved being a part of her special day.

 

Sophia’s 5th Birthday


Sophia is now 5! Sophia is now 5! SOPHIA IS 5?!?! Really?  Where did the time go?  She lost a tooth and now she is 5, what is going on?  Well, we took some fun shots of her for her 5th birthday, just so she can express her personality and what she is currently into.  Don’t mind some of her expressions and poses, I let her just go with the flow because every time I tried to pose her, well, she just did her own thing, and what better way to capture someone then actually just letting them be.  Not every hair is in perfect place, not every wrinkle is straightened out and not every pose is perfect, but that’s OK, because this is real life and this is who she is and this is who I LOVE HER as and why I LOVE HER so.  Leave it to Soph to keep it real! <3  This is who she is, this is what she loves, and that’s what I am going to love about her!

Happy 5th Birthday to my courageous little ninja turtle power girl! COWABUNGA DUDES and DUDETTES!  sorry no booyakasha here…let’s keep it old school.  🙂

Evan’s 3rd Birthday

Happy 3rd Birthday Evan!  It’s great to see friends and watch their kids grow.  Well, this party was full of color and amazement thanks to mom.  There was cake, there was bounce time, piñata time and then it was all topped off by a little sidewalk chalk art from the artist formerly known as Daddy-O, j/k, but yeah his dad did do some Pocoyo chalk drawing.  🙂  It was a great and colorful, fun time!

Britt’s 3rd Birthday Session

It’s nice to just see a kid in action, doing what they love to do, playing, running, chasing, just plain ol’ having fun.  That’s what I got to do when I came to take Britt’s photos.  These photos are more of a representation of catching him in the moment and being able to look back at the things that he enjoyed doing as he turned the wee little age of 3.  Happy 3rd Birthday Britt!

Elyse’s 1st Birthday Session

I am back again with another 1st birthday photo session with yet another cutie pie.    I actually can’t believe how quickly Elyse has grown since it feels as though just yesterday I photographed her baptism.
Well, for this session, we met at the boardwalk and got to taking some shots right away.  I am pretty sure she couldn’t wait to get to the cake smashing part because as soon as we got to that part of the session, she was ready to go before her mom and I even were.  🙂  This cutie loved diving into her cake and tasting that great frosting.  I wish Elyse a wonderful 1st birthday and many more to come, hoping that I see her many more times as well.

Happy 1st Birthday Elyse!

Eliana’s 1st Birthday Session

I absolutely love meeting new people and I am so glad I was able to meet this lovely family.  We met at a park to have Eliana’s 1st Birthday photos taken.  She’s a well-behaved, serious little girl, but I did manage to grab a few snaps of her smiling.  As we got to the cake smash part, she was ready to dive in, but once she got a feel for the cake, there was some apprehension, she wasn’t quite sure what to think of the whole thing…Was she really able to do this?  Get messy with no one telling her not to, but yet encouraging her to?  A couple of touches to the cake, some looks at her cake-filled hands and she was off and about ready to run around.
It was an absolute pleasure photographing this little one and her parents! A very beautiful family who is surely blessed.  Happy 1st Birthday Eliana, and many more!

Leanna’s 2nd Birthday Party

The day of Leanna’s 2nd Birthday party came and went, just like that, in the blink of an eye!  I can’t believe she is already 2.  What a great day spent with our little girl.  She was so excited for her Minnie and Mickey themed birthday party. The planning and preparation was well worth it just to see her face light up.  Now I hope this year goes a little slower so that it doesn’t feel as though she is growing too quickly and that way I can spend these precious moments with her.    ‘Til the next party!

Leanna’s 2nd Birthday Photo Session

I am absolutely amazed about how much this little one has grown and I honestly can’t believe she is already 2!  It’s amazing, the gifts that you are given in life to have such a precious being be a part of that life.  Although she is my third and just a child, she has taught me a lot.
Well, Leanna absolutely loved taking pictures with her Minnie and Mickey and she was so excited to sing Happy Birthday!  Giving hugs, kisses, and sharing secrets with Minnie and Mickey was all in fun! I look forward to this and many other precious moments I will share with her along the way.  Happy Birthday to my tiniest love!  May everything in life be as wonderful and magical as you!
