  • Penny - Wonderful pictures of the boys and their dog. Merry Christmas to you and the family.

  • Simon - I love the shot you used for this. Brilliant.06/22/2012 – 11:22 pm

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.

  • Lynne - Fun for the photographer and the family!! You captured such a variety of priceless expressions! Especially enjoyed the happy expression on the little brother (4th photo – 2nd line on right). His energy bursts forth in all the colored photos. What a dapper and handsome older son.11/22/2011 – 1:30 pm

  • Molly - What a classy session. Love both the color and black and white. And is that last black & white the perfect family photo, or what!11/22/2011 – 3:25 pm

  • april todd - Oh my goodness…these images are lovely!! Each and everyone of them. I love the editing and light as well, just beautiful!!11/22/2011 – 5:20 pm

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…

  • Penny - These children are all beautiful, such great pictures. They look like they are having a good time. Very nice.11/02/2011 – 6:44 am

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…

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!”

In addition to catching up on beach sessions, I have lots of newborn sessions from the summer that I’ve neglected to blog.   So stay tuned –  in the next few weeks, I am going to play catch up.

I’ll start with this beautiful little boy… he surprised us by arriving a bit earlier than expected, but was a good little sleeper, which always makes things go more smoothly.   Mom was a great help, especially with the hammock shot, which we were both determined to get.   And I just love the sepia-toned image of him in the little flyer hat…what a little sweetie!

  • Molly - Your photos are so beautiful. They reflect his fragile perfection. I love looking at them over and over again.10/02/2011 – 8:15 pm

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…
