It was the best of both worlds – combining a lifestyle session with a studio set-up.  Not only were we able to capture these boys in their natural environment at home, but also commemorate this younger brother’s first birthday with a cake smash session!  Mom did a great job with his outfit and cake, and watching him discover frosting for the first time was priceless!  I also just love lifestyle photography and I think it’s so important to capture your children in their natural environment right at home.  If you’re considering a session with me, think about combining both styles – it’s a wonderful pairing.

Such a pleasure to meet this beautiful family…it threatened to rain all day, but we decided to go for it anyway.  We got most of the session done before the shower started, but if you look really close at the shots with the wooden airplane, you can see the raindrops.  And we still managed to have some fun in the rain and get some more great images…which I love!

Beautiful Family Portraits - NJ Family Photographer Christine DeSavino

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.

Well, with Hurricane Irene upon us, I thought we could use some sunny beach pictures to brighten things up…  These boys got so big since the last time I saw them for a newborn & big brother session.  Look at them now – all kinds of adorable.  And what a change in just eight months!

Beach sessions for children are some of my favorites.  Mom and Dad dressed them in great beachwear and brought colorful, wooden beach chairs which made for awesome props.  At the end of the session, we were joined by the whole family… for a beautiful finale!

I love that I get to encourage laughing on the job!  It doesn’t always work, but it certainly did for this session.  These four kids were awesome…they were engaging, interesting, and just delightful.  They laughed easily, especially the girls, which not only makes my job easier but more fun.  And I’m all about fun on the job.  These portraits are a surprise Father’s Day gift from their mom to their dad and I just love that idea.

It’s always fun for me to try to capture each child’s unique beauty and I think you can see the different personalities shining through in these images…
