Eyes that sparkle… | NJ Child Photographer | Bergen County New Jersey

This family was referred to me by a friend and former client who described this little boy as very special…and indeed he was.  His eyes sparkled and his smile was infectious.  His mother told me that they wanted a slice-of-life style session and so as soon as I met him, I knew that this “sparkle” had to be captured.  He was playful, energetic and almost constantly giggling or laughing.  He kept us on the go,  directing us in the games we were playing – hide and seek, superhero, etc…   He was a joy to meet and photograph, as were his parents.  Here is a sneak peek…

Hello again… | Children’s Photographer | Bergen County, NJ

Well, since the busy season has started, my intention was to keep this blog post short…but I just couldn’t help myself.  I have so many that I love from this session I just kept adding them.   I will keep the words short though…just want to say that I first met this boy when he was only 4 months old and his big sister was two.  Now he is one year old, running and laughing and is just adorable!  His big sister is three and is just as beautiful as ever.  Take a look and see for yourself…

We are family…. | Family Photographer | Bergen County, NJ

This family session was awesome….a beautiful expecting mom, a hilarious dad and check out this little sweet pea they have for a daughter…  She wasn’t quite into her photo shoot at first, but we eventually got the most adorable expressions out of her.   Oh what a few goldfish and toys’ll do!

Mom was radiant…and nothing but belly!  I love this one of her.

Beautiful boy… | Newborn Photographer | Westchester, New York

There’s nothing more beautiful than a newborn being held in his mother’s arms.  Or a sleeping baby…so pure and  peaceful.  Capturing these precious moments is what makes my job meaningful and I feel privileged every time I am given the opportunity…

Congratulations to this family on their beautiful baby boy…

City Girl… | NYC Child Photographer | Madison Square Park, NYC

I had the extreme pleasure of meeting the most adorable one year old girl and her family this past weekend.  She was celebrating her birthday that day…and man, was she on the go.  Apparently she just started walking recently and boy was she good at it!  Actually, she’s pretty good at running…as you will see below.  I love shooting in New York City…so many amazing sites and backdrops for photos.  Madison Square park has a lovely fountain and is close to the iconic Flat Iron Building…

It was wonderful meeting your beautiful family…  I hope your birthday party was a blast and that we didn’t wear you out too much during the shoot!

Boys of Summer… | Children Photographer | Long Beach Island, NJ

This family got rained out – twice!  So we had to reschedule for the only weekend available …Labor Day!   That’s right, just in time for Hurricane Earl.  Well that ended up being no threat at all, but it did keep us wondering…

It was my last beach session of the summer and I wanted to go out with a bang!   I could feel the enthusiasm over the phone with this family and their two boys were fun and full of energy, which makes for such a great beach shoot!   Of course, they’re being so handsome doesn’t hurt either!  I really love the variety we got…and I am especially fond of the last shot by the light house.  (Note to self>I need one like that of my family!)

Wonderful to meet you guys…thanks for a such a nice ending to a fun-filled summer!! 🙂

Siblings by the seaside… | Beach Photographer | Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Brother and sister…and good friends too!  You could tell after a few minutes that these two were real buddies!  They were constantly laughing and joking – it was awesome to see and made for some adorable images!  (They’re being beautiful doesn’t hurt either!)

This family travels all the way from Texas to vacation at the Jersey shore…I’m telling you, LBI is just that special!  It was really a pleasure to meet them all…they could not have been any warmer or friendlier…and two hours passed in a snap.

Towards the end of our session, we ran into some sea-creatures and this brave boy showed me how to put a crab to sleep.  Apparently if you flip it over and rub it’s belly it falls asleep within a few seconds.  That’s when he picked it up and showed it to me up close!  Eeeeew!  Well, it was kinda cool actually.  Can’t say the same for the sting ray we found…
