Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Communion Season 2009 April 3, 2009

First Holy Communion season is right around the corner.

Have you considered formal portraits of your child prior to that special day?

What about having a professional photographer at your party to capture the special moments that only happen once in their lifetime?

If you’re interested in booking my photography services for your child’s 2009 Communion portraits or party photography contact me at:

Below are a small selection of photos taken during the 2008 Communion season:


My First Customer Photo Book with Blurb December 12, 2008

I just completed my very first Blurb book for the “S Family” of “N’s” First Holy Communion – from back in May!

I loved making it and I can’t wait to work on more customer collections in book form.  It brings back my graphic design days that I really enjoyed!

I’m also looking forward to making my own Blurb Books for 2007 and 2008 if I can ever get time!

Congrats to L & N – Dancing At Disney! July 28, 2008

This is just a little something I wanted to share because I love the families I’ve had the pleasure to work with for my budding photography business!

Mr & Mrs “S.” (featured back in April for their daughter’s communion party) had the wonderful experience of having both of their girls dance on stage in Disney World through their dance classes at American Dance Studios in Fanwood & Westfield, NJ.

Mrs. “S” shared this photo with me of the girls on their Disney Adventure and I thought I’d highlight it here:

Here they are back in April at the Communion Party:

CONGRATULATIONS L & N on the wonderful opportunity you had!!!


Family Portraits at Farrington Manor May 22, 2008

When I photographed the “S. Family” Communion party I was given the opportunity to take some of the families outside on the beautiful grounds of the Farrington Manor and do family/children’s portraits.

Even though the families had under five minutes each – I think I was able to capture their personalities in the selection of photos that I provided them.

Here are some favorites of each of the families:

You Couldn’t Even Stage Moments Like These If You Tried! May 21, 2008

Final photos to share of the “B. Family!” I’ve completed all of the work from their session with me.

Thanks to the B. Family for letting me spend a couple hours in your lives. You have a great family and you can tell by the interactions and love you see in the photos. Thanks for a great session! As I mentioned to “M” – this is why I do what I do!
