Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

NYCityscapes July 29, 2009

Mike Palmer was in NYC this week so I made the trip to meet up with him for our very own photo walk around the city.  We intended to take a class at B&H Photo but when we got there we decided to “ditch class” (Shssssh!  Don’t tell Mom I skipped school!) and instead we shop around B&H.  I had to control myself from walking out with a new lens and instead settled for a very small purchase of an SD card holder.  🙂

We did a lot of sightseeing, stopped in Times Square and had lunch at Hard Rock, then headed over to the International Center for Photography for the Avedon Fashion Photography exhibit (amazing work!).  We ended the day wandering around Central Park.  Despite the sweltering heat I had a great time!!  Thanks Mike!

I edited all of the photos from today but I’m going to break up the posts throughout the week while I’m busy moving out, moving in and unpacking.  After tomorrow I won’t have internet until Saturday (if I even have my computer set up by then!)  Then Monday I’m off to NC so I’ll be pre-setting up some blog posts of our visit to NYC so stop back for more!

And a good ‘ol cell phone pic!  (Just ignore my sweaty red face…it felt like it was 110 degrees!!)

 

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. 🙂

“Sleep Like A Baby” | New Jersey Newborn Photographer July 14, 2009

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous.

It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” ~Elizabeth Stone

This little angel “A” belongs to my oldest friend who I’ve known since pre-school.  She was so sweet and tiny and such a joy to work with.  She slept perfectly through the formal photos, just as I had hoped.  I loved her cute little lips and her little wrinkles on her back!  So sweet!!!

It’s hard to believe that a friend that I’ve known since I was only a couple years old now has a lil girl who is the same age we were when we met AND a new baby under a month old.  I’m so honored to be able to capture their lives as they grow through the years.

This session was also the debut of the first blanket my mom knitted for me for my sessions with newborns & babies.  It’s so beautiful & soft!  Thanks Mom!

Oh, and can you tell we were having fun with the hats (even if they were too big!!)? *lol* 🙂

*Stay tuned for more photos of “A’s” big sis “E” – coming soon!*

Fingers, Toes, Feet and Hands | New Jersey Newborn Photographer July 12, 2009

Babies are so precious!

Their tiny fingers, toes, feet & hands are so adorable and Baby “C’s” is no exception!
