[Family Beach session Brick, NJ]

I’ve been photographing this little one since she was a newborn and it’s been so exciting to watch her grow! For her nine month photos we headed out to the beach! It was absolutely adorable seeing her interact with the sand and stand in it to take pictures! But the best part was when her and big brother were playing in the sand together! So cute!

I’ve done 4 sessions with this awesome family, and at the next one, little Addison will be 1 year old! Another special part of this session was when mom took out a hockey jersey for Addison to surprise her dad with some photos with his team’s jersey! As if this little one could get any cuter, add in a hockey jersey!

I can’t wait to see how sweet her 1st birthday session will be!

[Patrick’s 1st Birthday Island Heights, NJ]

I remember when this little guy was born so it was so crazy to get to do his first birthday photos! Time sure is flying! We took pictures at one of my favorite places, Island Heights! We did have to fight with the wind a little bit but we didn’t let it stop us!

Patrick, along with his big sis and mom and dad was so cute during our session. Whether he was snuggling up with big sister and looking at the water or hanging out in the wagon on the boardwalk, he was a star! I think one of my favorite parts of our session was when Patrick wanted to crawl towards the water and big sister held onto him tight and said “Nooooo!” Such a good big sister!

I always love working with this awesome crew because we always have so much fun! It’s been so special to see these adorable kids grow up! Happy birthday Patrick!

[Aubrey’s Communion, Allaire State Park]

I’ve worked with this awesome family before so I was so excited to take photos for Aubrey‘s communion! Aubrey was absolutely stunning with her beautiful dress, high heels and headpiece! She loved exploring Allaire State Park to find the best places to pose!

As always, Allaire had some gorgeous places to take photos but the best place to take photos for this communion girl…in front of the church! It was so sweet to have Aubrey posing with the church behind her! We caught a glimpse of her future wedding day!

I think the best part of our session was when Aubrey got to do some twirling to show off her incredible dress! She was giggling and twirling and it was absolutely adorable!

[Baby Announcement at Holland Ridge Farms in Cream Ridge, NJ]

I’ve known this adorable couple for many years now so when they asked me to photograph their baby announcement I was SO excited! I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session a few years and now there’s a baby on the way!

I had never been to Holland Ridge Farms but I had seen photos and was so excited that we were going to do the session there! It was incredibly beautiful and it was the perfect backdrop for photos.

We started with some photos of mom and dad to be along with the sonogram and then we were joined by their families to take a few more photos. There were some emotional moments for all of us (as I’ve known the dad to be and his family for over 27 years!) and it was just so special to see how excited everyone was!

I can’t wait to meet the baby in October…stay tuned!

[At home family session Brick, NJ]

This was my third time working with this awesome family and we had such a great session! Addison turned 6 months old and since there was snow on the ground, we did the session all inside!

We had a really sunny day so the light coming in the windows was perfect! Addison had the cutest outfits and it was so exciting to see her sitting up on her own! Such a great milestone to capture!

We did some photos in the living room before popping outside in the snow for a quick few photos with big brother! After an outfit change we took photos in Addison’s bedroom which was absolutely adorable! One of my favorite parts of this session was when we put Addison (sitting up) in a crib that she was laying down in during her newborn session! It was so sweet to see how much she has grown!

[Family Photos Spring Lake, NJ]

I knew this was going to be a great session when this cute family got out of the car in their perfectly coordinated fall outfits! We started our session in one of my favorite spots, Divine Park in Spring Lake. We explored the bridge, collected some sticks and said hi to the ducks…and tried to get some photos too!

We then drove up to the beach and even though it was a little windy, it was nice and bright outside and the beach was the perfect backdrop for some more photos.

After running around on the sand with big brother, we rallied everyone together to stay warm for a few family photos! This was one of those sessions where I was up and down and running around but we got the cutest photos so it was totally worth it!

[Family Photo Session Spring Lake, NJ]

This was my second time photographing this sweet little family this year with one tiny difference…a new little brother! Earlier this year we had done photos on the beach in the summer before this little man made his debut. But once he was here, of course we had to do more!

Along with their cousins, we headed to my most popular spot this year for photos, Divine Park in Spring Lake. Although these were technically “fall” photos, it was such a warm day! We had the perfect sunshine and the perfect backdrop for photos.

After taking some photos in front of one of Spring Lake’s iconic bridges, we headed across the bridge to see what other fun spots we could find! We were able to squeeze in a few more before our little ones had enough but it was such a fun session!

[Family Photos at Divine Park, Spring Lake]

I had met this adorable family earlier this year when sweet little Addison was born and I was so excited to get to do more family photos now that she was a little bit bigger!

We had this session at Divine Park in Spring Lake like we had done her newborn sessions a few months prior but this time it was fall and it looked completely different!

We started with a few family photos then jumped into photos of Addison and her big brother! It was the perfect fall day to explore the park and find the best spots to take photos!

[Family Photos Atlantic City, NJ]

It’s always so much fun when I get to photograph this sweet couple and their adorable Dalmatian, Montego, so when they asked me to do a session at a fire house I was so excited!

We met up in Atlantic City and Montego was ready to go! The staff at the fire house were awesome! They pulled the truck out of the fire house and let us use real props in our photos!

Montego was truly the star of the show and everyone that walked by commented on cute he was! He was such a good boy and of course got lots of treats!

[Family Photo Session Spring Lake, NJ]

I’ve worked with this awesome family before so I knew we were going to have a great session! The only difference this time (besides the kids being so grown up!) was the addition of their new dog!

We started photos on one of the famous bridges in Divine Park in Spring Lake and took our time walking through the park to find the best places for photos! It was actually pretty warm for being a “fall” day so it was even better taking our time and enjoying the weather!

I think my favorite moments during the session was when the family would refer to each other by their nicknames! I had no idea who they were talking to until mom explained to me that they have funny nicknames for each other! I thought it was really cute!
