Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Change July 27, 2009

It’s very unlike me to NOT have a blog post almost everyday so I thought I’d give a little update on what’s new.

The reason you’re accessing the blog through the WordPress.com address is that—-> COMING SOON to Jen Rinaldi Photography is a new FRESH FACE for the blog!  I’ve been working very hard on it and I’m very excited for the unveiling – SOON!

I’m moving this week into a new home so things will be quiet on my end for a bit as I disconnect my computer & pack up my things and head out!

It’s been a really long couple years for me and I’m happy to finally be moving on to better things!

HOME SWEET HOME!

Sadly, my last day at my Full Time job at Johnson & Johnson was this Friday.  I was at my operating company almost 8 years with almost 10 years of service in total.  It was really hard to leave but since I didn’t have a choice I just have to roll with it!  Unemployment here I come!! It gives me time to work more on my photography, take a little break from life, and then pound the pavement looking for my new career choice!

I’m going to miss all of the amazing friends I made over the years.  😦

After I move this week I will be taking some time to head to North Carolina and enjoy a little time off from the “working world.”  I can’t wait to go and enjoy some of my new found time off!

I’m still working diligently, every spare moment I have, on all of the sessions I have that are unfinished!

I also have some session that are completed that I haven’t been able to share with you on the blog yet.

Below are some of the sessions that are COMING SOON on the blog:

Baby “S” Newborn Session

Ken & Moira’s Wedding:

Terri & Donovan’s Engagement Session


Happy 3rd Birthday E!

Keep checking back!  🙂

 

Morning at the Beach | New Jersey Children’s Portrait Photographer July 21, 2009

You can’t help but love this sweet little one with the stunning blue eyes.  She has grown so much since I last photographed her in October!  She’s the cutest little model to work with who had the cutest little expressions.  She’s going to be a big sister at the end of the month and I can’t wait to meet her little brother. 🙂

“Just Jack” | New Jersey Children’s Photographer July 8, 2009

Oh this lil guy steals my heart!  Look at those big blue eyes and that lil personality that shines in person and in his photos!

I was there to photograph his new baby sister but I couldn’t resist sneaking photo after photo of him.

I told him that he was my photo assistant and made him test my lighting, wear one of my mom’s winter hat creations, and I let him make lots of funny faces for me!

Used and HDR-esque look on the next 3 photos:

Giving baby sister a sweet kiss on the head…aww!

Modeling the hats!

The glazed-over-TV-face!

And reading his book.  Love seeing children in a curious fashion!

Mischevious….

…and the funny faces!


 

A Great Family + A Great Location = An Amazing Result | New Jersey Family Portrait Photographer July 6, 2009

What do you get when you mix a fantastic family, an awesome location, and a beautiful day?

You get a most perfect mix of ingredients to create an amazing set of portraits!

I couldn’t have asked for more than my two favorite things:  Family portrait shoots and an amazing location like Princeton University to take the photos.

With it’s amazing architecture, rich with history, Princeton University made for a perfect unique backdrop for family portraits on this lovely May day!

Thank you to the “S. Family” so being so flexible to trying different poses and being so pleasant to work with!  We loved working with you!
