K’s First Communion

It amazes me how time quickly passes, but what’s wonderful is the fact that we get to experience beautiful milestones during the time we have no matter how quickly it passes.  In a beautiful dress and adorning a beautiful smile, she shines bright for her parents and family to be so proud of her.   I know her day was just as wonderful as she looked on her First Communion day.  May she always be blessed!

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!

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.

C&M Engagement Photo Session

These 2 are tying the knot in 2017!  Can’t wait to be a part of their special day.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.   –Corinthians 13:4-8

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.

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.

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.

Marcantonio Family Photo Session

 

Again, another familiar family and I am so glad they came back around as I love to see how every one has grown along the way.  The kids had fun and I did too.  You can see the love that this family has as it emanates.  It was a huge pleasure to be a part of their evening. I look forward to another time with them again.JR-9561 JR-9574 JR-9583 JR-9586 JR-9588 JR-9617
