THE CUTE LITTLE FACES OF 2014

Each little face in front of my camera this year has brought me a tremendous amount of joy and I am so excited to see those faces and new faces again this year, 2015.
To all the parents, thank you for letting me capture your children’s expressions and precious moments.
Here are just some of the cute little faces I was able to photograph this year, in no particular order.

Mecionis Family Photo Session

A new family! They were so cute!  These 3 kiddos are so sweet and funny.  The weather was especially nice this day and we were able to get some really great images.  It’s a good feeling when you like what you do and you like who you meet.  Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you all again!

Strickland Family Photo Session

These two have a beautiful baby girl together and they enjoy every moment with each other, you can sense their appreciation for each other which is a wonderful feeling.  It was a frigid Fall day and we snapped away what we could with a break in between for the little one to get warmed up, but we did get some images of the family together enjoying each other.

Brenna’s 5th Birthday Session

Happy Birthday to YOU!  Happy Birthday dear Brenna!  Happy Birthday to YOU!  I love happiness, birthdays, celebrations, kids, and anything that just makes you smile!  I am so glad I was called back by Brenna’s mom to do just some every day fun shots of her.  Brenna is full of happiness and you can tell.  I cannot even believe she is 5 already, I am glad I am part of watching her grow!  I hope she has many more birthdays filled with family, friends and lots of love!

Child Quality Time

Every day is a busy day and we all go through it.  Always wishing there was more time in the day to do all those extra things in life.  Well, this time around I decided to capture some moments of my littlest love painting and enjoying her activity.  I was even able to get myself in some shots, that’s a first.  We all need to take a moment though and capture those little bits and pieces of our lives that a occur and mean so much to us and especially the people in it, it keeps the memory alive.
Have a beautiful day!

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!
