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!

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

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!

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.

Holiday Cheer!

This holiday season was filled with much cheer.  I was able to meet many families and be a part of keeping their holidays Merry and Bright.
What a great time to celebrate in joy with family and friends.  Here’s hoping that everyone spent the holidays with the ones they love.  Happy Holidays!

M Family Photo Session

I’ve been taking photos for this family for the past couple of years and I can’t believe how much their kids have grown, they are already almost taller than me, although an easy feat given my size, but really accounting for their age and grade their in.  Either way, I am so thrilled to have been asked to take their photos again.  To enter into someone else’s world is a wonderful experience and the opportunity to capture the small moments in their life is just that as well.

Thank you for reaching out to me each year to enter into your world even if it’s just for a small subset of a day.

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!

Family Photos at Lockridge Park

A trip out to Pennsylvania to meet up with this beautiful family.  Celebrating a little boy’s 2nd birthday and wonderful wedding anniversary this week, there’s just so much excitement how can it all be contained?!  WE all got through this hot day, hopefully they were able to enjoy some well deserved water ice afterwards.  Happy Birthday! and Happy Anniversary!
