So many of my sessions involve soothing newborns or coaxing young kids that I forget how wonderful it is to shoot willing models. These two were not only willing but each had a beauty that was unique and truly exquisite. And sure that makes my job easier, but even still, I think what I liked most was the way they interacted with each other. There was obviously a lot of love between them, but also enough teasing and kidding to make the results natural and fun.

OK…I know we just celebrated Halloween. And on top of that we had a major snow storm…in some places we got a foot and a half of snow, and many in my area are without power from fallen trees and downed power lines. Sooooo, I thought it only appropriate to inject some warm wishes into this cool, first day of November.
This beach session took place on the very last day of September…ya know, back when it was balmy. These kids were adorable, fun and photogenic! Mom chose some great outfits (love those dresses!) and as I’ve said before LBI as a backdrop just doesn’t get much better…

This little girl was, in her dad’s words… “spirited.” She woke up in between almost every pose and gave a good little cry. Luckily, her dad was so fantastic at soothing her back into a slumber, that we named him “the baby whisperer.” Mom and Dad actually came all the way down from West Point for their session …with a cadet uniform in tow! (It made for a great prop!) It was really fun collaborating with this sweet little girl’s mom on the look of the session and the various props. They also brought pink roses and hydrangeas for the session…I love it! And, as you can see in the last shot, big brother was also on hand for a handsome portrait with his baby sister. A beautiful family indeed and a fun session…

Wow…this summer really flew by. It’s been my busiest summer yet in business, especially with beach sessions down at LBI! Unfortunately, something had to give…and it was my blogging. My beach season started in April and believe it or not, I’m on my way to the beach this weekend for one final session and who knows, maybe I’ll even get some pictures of my own children.
But before the feel of summer totally fades, giving way to fall foliage and Halloween mania, I wanted to show some of my favorite images from sessions that I didn’t have a chance to blog this summer…

What do you do when you have a beach session scheduled and it’s really windy out? You start inside and gradually work your way to the beach…
I’ve often wondered what it would be like to have a sister, especially when I see girls as close as these two. And their parents were warm and welcoming from start to finish – you can just see it in these images.
We eventually made it to the beach for some candids by the surf…wonderful summer memories for sure!

This little girl decided to arrive early. So small and delicate, she was a dream to photograph. She slept for the whole session and barely fussed one bit. Just when we started the bowl shot, she started waking up – hungry! So I had to work fast…but she stayed still just long enough…

I truly enjoyed the afternoon that I spent with this beautiful girl and her family. She was sweet and relaxed and just lovely to be around, as was all of her family. We covered a lot of ground and managed to work with the very windy day we were given, but I actually love the results…her wind-blown hair looks amazing, doesn’t it?
Wishing you all the best for your upcoming senior year! I know you’ll shine…
This precious little baby girl was one of my first newborn shoots of the summer and let me tell ya, it was a hot one!! As babies tend to sleep much better in the heat, I asked mom to turn off the AC so we could get her groggy for the session. Well, she fell asleep and stayed in a deep slumber the whole time as I sweat bullets, but the results were well worth it. She is beautiful, just like her mommy, and I love the image of the two of them; we decided to get that pose at the last minute and sometimes those end up being some of the best ones! Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer girls…
