Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

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!

 

Sneak Peek: The “S. Family” @ Princeton Univ | New Jersey Family Portrait Photographer June 29, 2009

I spent a beautiful May day with the “S. Family” at Princeton University.  I really enjoyed working with them!

They were up for all my pose ideas and I think that allowed us to get some UNIQUE photos.

We enjoyed all the campus had to offer for great portrait settings.

There are so many things on campus that provide such a great backdrop for a photo shoot that make me just love it there!

One photo in particular (below) is one of my favorites from the shoot:

 

The “G Family” Full of Smiles | NJ Family Portrait Photographer June 25, 2009

All the waiting has come to an end!

Below are the results of my family portrait session with one of the best families around!

Just to refresh your memory of the teaser I posted on 6/1 regarding the shoot:

“I must say that this is one of the best families around…and I’m not just saying that because Lee has been one of my greatest friends since High School.  :) Lee and his brother Scott decided to purchase a portrait session with me as an anniversary gift to their parents.  I was so excited to do it!  We met close to sunset at his parent’s house which is in a beautiful community that had a nice lake and gazebo as well as a great lake view from their backyard to work with.  We even included the doggies (you’ll see!).

Lee’s family was so wonderful to work with.  I laughed the entire time we were involved in the shoot (especially at his Dad’s jokes!!) and had a great evening as I joined them for the 2nd evening of their Passover celebration.  I tried Brisket for the first time and had 2nd a helping because it was sooo good!

Thanks to all of you for making me feel like part of the family!!”
