Fall Rocks ~ NJ Family Photographer

A beautiful family in a beautiful setting…this was the epitome of a rockin fall session from last year.   I thought I would post it now that September is well underway and summer is fading quickly in the rear-view mirror.  (sniff, sniff)  I can’t fight it, but what I can do is get excited about some of the year’s most spectacular natural backdrops.   Fall foliage makes for some gorgeous family photos and peak season is approaching fast (generally mid-October to mid-November).  It’s a small window, and my most popular time of year for sessions, so don’t put off scheduling if you want to capture this special time of year!

If you would like to book a fall session, I have some lovely locations that really showcase the season’s gorgeous colors. And even better, I’m also offering a great way to save with my ‘Wednesday Specials‘…click here for details!














Beautiful Family by the Seaside! ~ Sea Girt Beach Photographer

I’ve had the extreme pleasure of photographing this BEAUTIFUL family many times during many seasons, but this was our first beach session.  And it did not disappoint!  The beach is one of my favorite back drops for a family session, because it has always been a special place in my life, and I love seeing families creating magical beach memories of their own.   This mom and dad are easy-going, fun and comfortable in front of the camera.  And I have to say, that watching these two boys grow from darling newborns to handsome young boys in what seems like the blink of an eye, only goes to reinforce just how treasured these images will become as the years go on…

Family time… | NJ Family Photographer | Ringwood, New Jersey

I loved this family…they were fun, relaxed and the conversation came easy.  The kids were adorable and we had no problem getting them to laugh and play and even strike a dapper pose or two.   The little guy was one and half, so when you put him down, he was on the go!  And I followed – hey, it’s part of the job description.  Then I finally smartened up and asked his brother to catch him, which made for some cute shots.

For this session, we visited the beautiful NJ Botanical Gardens, and this was before the freak snow storm wreaked havoc on many of it’s trees and plants. But our timing was good and the grounds were such a picturesque backdrop for this beautiful family…I just love the results.

Exquisite… | NY Child Photographer | Westchester, New York

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.

Warm wishes… | NJ Beach Photographer | LBI New Jersey

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…

Comfy and Cozy… | NJ Newborn Photographer | Bergen County New Jersey

In my continued effort to catch up on my blogging, I’d like to share this little beauty from the summer.  This little guy was only a week old and he stayed very comfy and cozy for almost the whole shoot.  Mom also had the cutest selection of props and accessories…like this owl hat.  Say it with me….”aaaaaaw!”
