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!

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.

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.

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

Christina and John’s Wedding

As you know, I generally work on children and family photos, but I ventured out and took on my very first wedding. I had the opportunity to photograph this wedding for two pretty awesome people.  It was a beautiful day, an awesome celebration, an insanely attractive wedding party, a handsome groom and a simply stunning bride.  Here’s to them!  Wishing them happiness, love and laughter for many years! Christina and John you looked amazing!  JR-0395 JR-1-5 JR-1-3 JR-1-4 JR-0737 JR-0043

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!
