Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

“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!

 

Oh, The Little Yawns! | New Jersey Newborn Photographer July 5, 2009

I LOVED this session.  She was such a sweet little doll!

She was so tiny and adorable and she slept almost the entire time.

She made the cutest little expressions and big yawns that were so precious!

Hand-crafted hat by my Mom!  (Yarn’in to Please)

Just look at the little smiles in the next two photos!

…and the tiny, tiny little hands!  Precious!

 

The Sweetest Expressions | New Jersey Portrait Photographer July 2, 2009

Isn’t she the sweetest little gal with the cutest expressions??

I couldn’t get enough of her!

I didn’t direct her at all…she came up with all her own poses and expressions! 🙂

Blowing Kisses to you all!

 

Sneak Peek: Newborn Session With Chloe | New Jersey Baby Photographer June 30, 2009

Sweet little Chloe arrived 5 weeks early!

Chloe is the 3rd child to my good friend Sue and her husband Marty.  They have 2 adorable little boys (who I’ll be sharing photos of in the near future as well).

I love her!  She was a pleasure to spend the day with and I told Sue I wanted to take her home.

I’m looking forward to sharing a selection for this session with you this week but for now here is a sneak peek because I just couldn’t wait to share her!

 

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:
