[Baby’s First Christmas Edison, NJ]

I got to photograph two Christmas sessions last week that were the baby’s first Christmas and it was so exciting! For this session, I went up to Edison for Luke’s first Christmas photos! His adorable mom had the house decorated, had the best Christmas props and of course the sweetest outfits for little Luke!

We started our session with Luke in his Christmas sleigh! It took a few tries to get him sitting up right, but any way he was sitting in that sleigh, it was going to be adorable. I must have been boring him or tiring him out because after the sleigh, he went right to sleep, and it was honestly the cutest thing ever! He slept so contently as I positioned him on his blanket and took hats on and off his head and when he woke up, he was happy as ever!

We finished our session with Luke, aka the baby reindeer, and if you thought the session couldn’t have gotten cuter, you would be wrong! Basically, no matter what we had Luke doing during this session, it was adorable!

It’s always exciting to take Christmas photos but it’s especially exciting when it’s the baby’s first Christmas! Although this little Angel was a bit skeptical of having her photo taken, she was still absolutely adorable!

Whether she was snuggling with mom and dad or asleep on the couch, she looked beautiful! She even let mom and dad change her outfit during our session, because double the Christmas dresses, double the cuteness!

After this session, one thing was clear…all this cutie wants for Christmas is snuggle time!

[Christmas Photos Spring Lake, NJ]

Last year when I photographed Angelina and her dog Snowball for Christmas, we picked the coldest day of the year and we were on the beach! This year was a little less cold and she had a new furry friend, Charlie to take pictures with. We went to a beautiful spot in Spring Lake, which is going to be my new favorite place for sessions, and had so much fun taking pictures with both dogs!

We went from the bridge, to the lake and to a really cool looking tree to take pictures and of course mom and dad were there to help get the dogs to look at the camera! If only we had pictures of three adults trying to get two little dogs attention with treats and silly noises! No matter how crazy we might have looked, it was well worth it!

[Geralyn + Patrick’s Beautifully Elegant Wedding New Hope, PA]

I am so excited to finally share this beautiful wedding with you! In the beginning of November, I had the privilege of photographing Geralyn and Patrick’s wedding and it was absolutely perfect. Geralyn and her family have been very good friends of mine for quite some time, so getting to spend the day with them, and Patrick and his awesome family, was the best ever!

Our day started bright and early at Geralyn’s childhood home which was decorated for the big day by her sweet mama! From bows on the stairs, to “Love” signs and candles on the dressers, everything was wedding day ready. It was a busy morning of hair, makeup and getting dressed but it was so much fun!

Geralyn and Patrick were married at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by their friends and family. Following their ceremony, the couple was greeted by everyone with bubbles and a champagne toast! We arrived at the Hotel du Village in New Hope for some family and bridal party photos, and then it was party time!

There was a really fun set up at the Hotel du Village where everyone ate dinner in the amazing dining room, listened to the great toasts and watched some really special first dances! After dinner, the guests were brought into the dance room where there was an awesome live band, dessert and plenty of room to dance! One of the biggest hits at this wedding however were the fire pits and s’mores making stations outside! It was a really pretty space to enjoy the fire and to make some sweet treats!

Patrick and Geralyn had such a beautiful wedding day that I was honored to be part of! Congratulations to this amazing couple and best wishes for everything that the future holds as husband and wife!

[Christmas Cousins Toms River, NJ]

Last week I got to photograph one of my favorite families that I nanny for! I had the best summer ever with these cuties and it was so much fun getting to take their Christmas photos with their new baby cousin!

The girls all started this session looking absolutely beautiful in their Christmas dresses! After the fancy photos, they got comfy in their Christmas jammies! The big girls cuddled up with their baby cousin, singing to her, reading to her and finally watching as she fell asleep!

It was so sweet to see the girls interact with their new cousin and it was so much fun to take little Codi’s first Christmas pictures!

[Family photos Island Heights, NJ]

Last week I got to photograph a beautiful family at my favorite place ever! Yes it was super windy and yes it was super cold, but this family rocked it and it was totally worth it! I’m lucky enough to nanny for this awesome crew so it was a lot of fun to get to photograph them!

Big brother, Brody, was the best little model ever! He was ready and posing every time I picked up my camera. He was such a great helper too when it came to getting his little brother and sister to smile! We’ve been trying to schedule a session for the longest time, but the weather always had another plan! I’m so glad that we stuck it out through the cold because these guys looked so amazing!
