[Family Christmas Photos Allaire State Park, NJ]

I’ve known this awesome family for many, many years…way back when I was as young as these two cute boys! So of course I was very excited to get to photograph them at one of my favorite places.

It was extremely cold the day of our session, but this family toughed it out and the boys were on their best behavior! We walked all around the park and collected a bunch of giant leaves along the way! We even got hot chocolate at the end of the session to warm up for the ride home. The boys kept us all laughing and it was worth every minute of being out in the cold!

[Kids Session Island Heights, NJ]

I am obsessed with Island Heights! It is just adorable, the river is beautiful and it always provides a perfect backdrop for photos. I was so excited to do this session at Island Heights and the lighting and scenery did not fail! Not the mention, the kids looked absolutely perfect!

As the sun was setting, we took advantage of the perfect light and we explored the boardwalk to find the best places for our next picture. These kids and their mom were so awesome to work with and it made for a great session at my favorite place!

[Family Christmas Photos Seaside Park, NJ]

I always know it’s going to be super cute when I get to photograph my beautiful peanut and her beautiful sisters! Gabriella is the little girl that I nanny and I just love her and her sisters. This is our second year taking pictures for Christmas and it’s so fun and exciting for me to see how much these girls have grown!

We decided to head to the beach and bring along all of our Christmas spirit. Even though it was chilly, these cuties snuggled up together and gave me the sweetest smiles. They made each other laugh, they made me laugh, and best of all, mom was doing all kinds of silly things to get them to laugh! Overall, it was a great session to celebrate the holiday season!

[James Jr. Baptism Toms River, NJ]

I knew there would be more of this sweet baby and his awesome family in my future! It was such an honor to be able to photograph James’s Baptism a few weeks ago. Dressed in his dad’s Baptism outfit, and surrounded by his family and friends, baby James was absolutely adorable. And not to mention, he took getting water splashed on his head like a total pro!

James was Baptized at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and he was the star of the show. Whether it was snuggling with mom during the ceremony, or staring up at dad while being Baptized, little James was calm, cute and precious the entire time!

This little guy took a quick snooze at the start of his party, but once he woke up, he was ready to go! Hanging out with his family, meeting new friends or just having a bottle, James’s celebration was perfect. Congratulations on your Baptism, James!

[Fall Family Photos Double Trouble State Park, NJ]

I’ve been going to Double Trouble State Park since I was little. The trails are beautiful all year round, but it’s pretty special in the fall! I had so much fun photographing one of my favorite families there last week.

I was lucky enough to babysit these two cute girls this summer and we had the best time! It was so fun taking their family pictures because they loved posing and being my assistants too! We did some hiking and exploring of the park and stopped plenty of times along the way to take pictures where we found the perfect background.

I just love everything about this session; the color of the leaves, the beautiful light, and the perfectly coordinated outfits that mom picked out! This session had been rescheduled so many times because it kept raining on the day we were supposed to shoot! Luckily, the weather held up this time and it ended up being another perfect fall day for pictures!

[Baby Max, 4 month old photos Somerset, NJ]

I’ve never been to Colonial Park in Somerset, NJ and man was I missing out! I made the journey up north to photograph sweet baby Max on a perfect fall day! It was one of those days where almost everyone in the park was accompanied by a photographer for fall photos!! The best!

Max, along with his mom, grandma and cousin was perfectly dressed for the fall season and despite some crying, he was absolutely adorable! But then again, even when he was crying he was still so adorable! Max was most comfortable in his mom’s arms and when he smiled, his whole face lit up!

I was so glad that I got to explore a beautiful park with a beautiful little baby boy on the most perfect fall day! Get ready for the cuteness!

[Family Christmas Photos Toms River, NJ]

I was so excited when Nina asked me to do her family photos for Christmas! It wasn’t my first time photographing this awesome family, but this time, I was photographing a family of 4!!! Baby James made the most adorable appearance along with his equally adorable big sis for a fun family session to celebrate the holiday season.

Nina had the perfect ideas to show off her little ones; first, dressed in their best, ready for Santa and second, snuggled up in matching pajamas! Are they cute or what?! It’s always so fun when I get to work with this family and this session had plenty of holiday cheer to get me ready for the season!

P.s. Baby James, I don’t think your big sis will really send you off to Santa! She loves you too much!

[Noah+Toni’s Perfectly Rustic Wedding at Masso’s Red Pine Inn in Glassboro, NJ]

October 1, 2016 was such a great day! I got to spend it with some awesome people photographing my second wedding!! From the moment I got to the hotel in the morning, to the moment that I left the ceremony, Noah, Toni and their friends and family couldn’t have been nicer. Is there really a better way to spend a saturday than photographing a beautiful wedding?! The answer is no, there really isn’t!

Noah and Toni’s wedding took place at Masso’s Red Pine Inn in Glassboro, NJ and despite some rain, the day was still perfect. Toni spent the morning, along with her mother and bridesmaids getting ready at the hotel with yummy mimosas and plenty of funny filters on snapchat. We met Noah at the ceremony space for the couple’s first look, and it was absolutely adorable. After some awesome portraits with the bridal party and Noah and Toni’s family, it was showtime!

The ceremony took place in the beautiful Grand Wooded Falls, where the falls are absolutely the spotlight…that is until the bride and groom arrive 😉 The ceremony was super sweet and it was perfectly ended by the bride’s mother and the groom’s parents introducing the newlyweds for the first time.

Finally, it was party time at the Red Pine Inn! This reception was so rustic, I couldn’t contain my excitement! From the handmade card holder, to the succulent center pieces, everything was very natural and it was seriously the best! The newlyweds spent the night dancing, enjoying their friends and family and having a blast in their homemade photo booth! Like I said, this was a pretty sweet day! Congratulations Noah and Toni!
