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.

 

L Family Maternity Session

Anyone who truly knows me would know that when my friends and family are happy, I am truly happy.  In some cases, I feel like I am happier more than they are at the time of their happiness. The sheer joy that I feel for someone else’s happiness brings me to tears at times.  I know, I know I am using the word “happiness” a lot!  Well, I am grateful for wonderful friends and growing families.  It’s amazing to be a part of someone’s life and share in such momentous and celebratory occasions.

Many blessings to this beautiful family for this well deserved LOVE that continues to grow in their life.

S Family Photo Session

Each year I get to take this family’s photos and each year I think to myself how great it is to be a part of their life and experiences.
I look forward to watching little Z grow up to be such a big girl.  Her eyes shine so bright when she is with her parents.  There is a love there that grows and grows and I am so happy to capture that.

Thank you!  Enjoy the memories.

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.

Sophia’s 6th Birthday!

Another year gone by and another year older!  That went by super quick, feels like just yesterday I was taking Ninja Turtle themed photos of her.
Well, this year she wanted to dive right into SUPER HERO action.  She wanted a mask, a cape and some kicks to go with it.  We hit the streets caped crusader style to take these photos and she absolutely had a BLASTif you can’t tell by her facial expressions. With a WHAM! POW! KABOOM! we finished these pictures up in FLASH!  It was hard to pick which images to post because I truly loved them all due to her energy.
She is honestly ALL the things I LOVE wrapped into a tiny bundle.  I can’t wait to see what SUPER amazing stuff she will do in life.  

Happy SUPER 6th Birthday, Sophia!  I hope you had a blast.

L Family Photo Session

Fall is here!  Love it!  …and I am loving the fact that I had the chance to meet up with this beautiful family.  3 beautiful girls, what a lucky couple!  The kids were great and the family was wonderful all together.
The great thing was I got to see the family 2 more times that weekend.  🙂  I am so appreciative for the families I get to meet and I love to see the interaction and love that other families share.
A big Happy 7th Birthday to Nylah!

Sophia Laurel

Quite frankly, I love taking photos of children, because I envy the fact that they live carefree and have such an innocence to them.
Little Sophia Laurel(not so little anymore) came back for another photo session and I was so in awe of how much she’s grown since I have seen her last.  Of course, she has great style because her momma dresses her and makes her look quite chic.  I was surprised though at how much she liked to run around, explore and play with DIRT!  Sophia! It’s all good, because today was a day for her to be one with nature and she was!  Looking forward to many more sessions with her again.

Sophia Laurel Photo Session

One of my favorite little girlies was back again.  I am so happy to see her grow.  We went right into it and she was, as always, a little model.  Snapped away taking many candids of this little chica in action. Also, got some images of mom and daughter together.  She really is a little model.  Can’t wait to see her again!

Stugis Family Photo Session

I was so happy to see this family as I’ve watched Chloe grow up and now Max is getting big so quick also.  Where does the time go?!
We had a very cold morning, but we managed to snap a few shots in hopes to finish up and warm up with some hot chocolate afterwards.  I absolutely love the kids’ facial expressions.

Olmeda Winter Session

The holidays are quickly approaching and what best to do than cozy up next to your love, have some cocoa and smell the fresh pine in the air.  We have so much to be thankful for and these 2 are showing it, right here, having fun and anxiously awaiting the Holidays to celebrate life, love, family and spread good cheer.
