Lisa & Jake's Sunset Celebration

Is there anything sweeter than an engagement session turned pregnancy announcement with the added cuteness of a goldendoodle? Let me answer that for you. There is not.

Lisa and Jake have so much to celebrate together. We had so much fun at our session waiting for the sun to set and ending it with a dip in the Barnegat Bay. Grover, their goldendoodle, was not only the cutest but the most well behaved boy which has me inspired to include more dogs in my sessions.

Wishes these two the best as they spend the next year planning all of the exciting things life has to offer.

Senior Dance Session

.There’s nothing quite like that first beach day when summer’s just beginning.

These girls and I headed to Atlantic Highlands last weekend for this shoot. It was a fun one, but an emotional one to look back on - these four girls are graduating high school this year, which is exciting and scary all at once.

It’s incredible to see the special bond these girls have made with each other. This shoot was a great way to preserve the memories they’ve made together. Senior year is such a unique time of a person’s life - it’s the oldest they’ll be as a kid, and the youngest they’ll be as an adult. It’s the time of the biggest changes of their life thus far. And the best part of it all is that they get to experience it together.

McComb Extended Family Session

I absolutely loved this shoot! I met with the McComb extended family last weekend for a photoshoot in Cranford. The setting was as perfect as could be. It was the perfect day for blowing bubbles, spinning around in the field, and taking photos.

My favorite part about the whole day was seeing how close all these adorable cousins are with each other. It was almost like they were all siblings. The girls had fun spinning around in their dresses together. The boys looked like professional models with how great their pictures came out. My favorite photo here is the shot of Nancy and Bob will all of their grandchildren on the bench.

When I take family pictures, my goal is always to make sure the everyone is truly having fun. I think I accomplished that on this shoot! I was able to capture the family in their moments of bonding and I was so happy to be able to do so. Maybe it was because I gave them candy, but the children all left with big smiles!

Heart to Vows

One of my favorite things to do as a creative small business owner is to work with other creative small business owners. I am always in awe of people - their ideas, passion and drive to put something into the world that isn’t there or make something that is already there even better.

Asha is a creative entrepreneur who is the founder of Heart To Vows - an all inclusive vow writing service with options of having a (word for assitant) create meaningful ceremonies based on the values of her couples. Asha has a way with words that sets her apart from the rest. As an english teacher and literary fanatic, she has the ability to listen to the meaning and create the words to go along with it. I would describe her process as nothing short of magical.

This brand session was the kick off to Asha’s business being introduced to the world. I know she is going to crush it. I couldn’t have been more honored to help bring her vision to life and be a part of her creative entrepreneur journey.

Hickens Family Session

When I heard that the Hicken’s family was expecting baby #3 I was so excited for them and even more thrilled that they asked me to capture this exciting time in their lives. We picked a day during winter break and got really lucky with the weather and my favorite spot in Morristown.

The best thing about family sessions is that we can document how families grow over the years. With every new member added to the family, and every milestone reached.

We set out to Loantaka for our session. It was a great day, just as winter was turning into spring. My favorite shot of all of these is the one of Ellie and Harper holding hands on the grass. How adorable are they? Imagine being able to fit into shoes that little. They are such sweet siblings and were fully ready to take on their new role as big sisters.

Shortly after this session, they welcomed a baby boy, Carter, to their sweet family. I’m so glad they have these photos to remember their last days as a family of 4.
