Mommy + Me

I LOVE LOVE LOVE little boys.  Maybe it's because I'm the proud mom of two boys myself, but there is just something so very special about the love between a little boy and his mama.  What a fun and special session I had with this sweet mama and her favorite little man.  I was so excited that we had such a gorgeous Wyoming evening to play in.  xoxo

 

Mama you know I love you from the bottom of my heart
To the depths of my soul
You'll always be the first woman... I ever fell in love with - Donnell Jones

Lake | Cheyenne WY Family Session

 

So many beautiful locations I've been able to visit with this family. I've felt so blessed to have had the chance to capture them throughout the years.  Watching them grow has been such a joy!  I look forward to hopefully seeing them whenever I'm back on the East Coast, as there is NO way I could stay away!!!  

It's like a diamond ring
It's a precious thing
And we never want to lose it
It's like a favorite song
That we love to sing
Every time we hear the music
 

Cole | Cheyenne WY Family Session

I may be a tad biased, but I totally believe I have the most beautiful clients ever!  This adorable little family was such a joy to photograph.  We had the best time, and little mr. man just happens to be the cutest thing this side of the Mississippi...or both sides for that matter!

There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart
Our dreams

Ben | Cheyenne WY Welcome Baby Session

Happy New Year friends! It's hard to believe that my little family has been in WY for over a month now.  We've been so busy settling in, and getting acquainted with our new home, that I realized how many beautiful sessions, I still have yet to share with you.  Welcome baby sessions have quickly become some of my absolute favorite sessions.  I absolutely love experiencing the nervous excitement, and reverent awe that these new parents have for their beautiful blessings.

I am SO excited to share more of my beautiful sessions from 2016, and I can't wait to meet new families (and new babies) here in WY this year!

Weinberg | South Jersey Family Session

My absolute favorite season of the year has officially begun here in the Mid Atlantic.  Pumpkin picking, hay rides, pumpkin spice ANYTHING, fuzzy sweaters and my absolute favorite Fall Family sessions!  I was so excited to have the chance to photograph this beautiful family again before I move out west, (whenever that will actually happen).  It really doesn't feel like work when you get to catch up, sing silly songs, laugh and oh, take some photos in the in between times.  I'm so lucky!

I have just a few spots remaining for October, and will be opening Nov spots the first week of October.  

You're the heart of me, oh, sweet love of mine

Smith | Long Beach Island, NJ Family Session

I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss those beautiful summer evenings at the shore.  And to have one of my final shore sessions be with one of my favorite families...

It just can't get any better than that!

Life is grand, life is great, life is good
Life is beautiful

Hines | South Jersey Family Session

If there could be a list of the most amazing families in the world, this family would be right up there at the top!  They hold a special place in my heart, these four.  I'm so blessed that so many of my clients have become such wonderful friends.  I wish I could just pack them up with me and move them with me.  I'm sure they'd love Wyoming....right?!

As fate would have it....I will be here a bit longer than I planned, so I am taking FALL sessions throughout October!  I'd love to see you all soon!!

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that Id like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

Kelly Turns 3-0 | South Jersey Smash Session

My beautiful...and Amazing friend Kelly, decided she wanted to something completely out of the box for her 30th Birthday, and knowing me...she knew I'd be game for something a little crazy!  So we came up with this adorable...and totally 30th birthday worthy smash session!  Heck, you only turn 30 once right???  Though...I just reused my 30th Birthday candles...for the oh...7th time.  

But who's counting....

Each session will be 20 minutes long, and will include 8 high resolution digital files with print release, and a set of  4 x 6 keepsake prints so you can look at them wherever or whenever!

Simpkins | South Jersey Family Session

 

Can I just say, that Fall in NJ is beautiful.  As a Colorado girl I never really thought any fall could rival the stunning autumnal colors of the Rocky Mountains, but I have to say, that here in Mid Atlantic, the falls are just a beautiful, with all the different shades and hues.  Add with it, how amazing the weather was this last fall, and voila...perfection.  I loved meeting up with this sweet family on a particularly beautiful  day.  This was their first Fall here in the Garden State, and I think we were able to capture it quite nicely!!!  These 4 were SO much fun...and I hope I get to play around in fall leaves again with them this year!!  xoxo

Being here right now
Is all I want to do
In my life
When you smile

Hurst | Moorestown NJ Family Photography

Beautiful day....check.   Beautiful family....check check.     Amazing memories captured....check check check!   I always get excited for January, because I finally get a chance to share (hopefully) all of the stunning sessions I shot over the fall.  I always have a word that sums up my previous year, and I think the word that best describes 2015 is "connection"  I really feel like I was able to really capture so many beautiful connections between families, which is numero uno one of why I LOVE this job!!

I could ramble on Forever about how much I enjoy what I do, but instead, I'll just share this AHMAZING session from this last fall!  These three were SO much fun to work with, and the love they have for each other was tangible!!! xoxo

2015 | Year in Review

2015 was a banner year!  SO many amazing beautiful families I had the pleasure of working with this year!  I AM SO excited for what's in store for 2016!  I want to thank ALL of you for allowing me the honor of capturing your special memories this year!  I wish you all much love and happiness in the New Year, and I hope to have the privilege of seeing you all again very soon!!!

People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything

is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that.

A Beautiful Beachside Christening | Cherry Hill NJ Photographer

It was so very special, that I was able to photograph sweet Primrose's christening a few weeks ago.  Prim and her family are SO very special to me, and I have loved being a part of so many special moments over the years. Originally I was going to be on vacation, and wasn't able to attend, but through some finagling of dates, I was able to come home early from my vacation, and headed to Long Beach Island!   It was such a beautiful day, and an equally beautiful ceremony performed by her grandpa, and witnessed by those who will love and support Primrose throughout her life. I am so so happy I was able to be there, not only as their photographer, but as their friend, andI am so excited to share these beautiful and special moments with you all!  xoxo

Beautiful Scott Arboretum Family Session | Swarthmore PA Photography

I absolutely adore getting to see this family!  Every year we find the most amazing places for their family sessions, and this year was no exception.  We headed out on a beautiful August morning to the grounds of Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore College.  It was magical!  I loved everything about this session, capturing the joy and love that they have for each other, it's infectious!  I especially loved just being able to spend a beautiful morning with a special and dear family!! BEST part about this job! 

I'm all smiles, darling
You'd be too
If you knew, darling
All of the smiles were for you

Margeson Family | South Jersey Family Session

I love so very much creating such special relationships with my clients.  Having the opportunity to watch their families grow, capturing these special moments.  But, on the flip side, I get so sad when their stories take them to somewhere else, and I no longer will be there to see them every year.  I've been so blessed to be able to photograph this beautiful family for over three years now, and I've so loved watching those two sweet babies grow.  I'm SO excited for their next journey, but I'm so sad that this was my last session with them. I will miss them, and wish them well in all that is to come!  xoxo

I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

Snyder Family | Long Beach Island NJ Family Session

God, I'm lucky!  Beyond blessed to be able to do what I love everyday for a living.  I love every family I meet, every session I shoot, every gallery I deliver, and EVERY moment I capture.  I LOVE this family, and I love that the as world wide as the military is, it's a small world, and that this crazy life we live, brings us amazing friends from all over the country if not the world.  And though we all leave at some point, we always have these moments, and these friendships.   I have been so blessed to have met Hannah and her family, and she is such an amazing wife and mother, and she is as beautiful on the inside as on the outside!   And even though I know they won't be here in NJ forever, it has meant so much to have her as a wonderful friend!   I have to admit, I got a wee bit teary eyed editing their session....obsessed is an understatement! 

 

You must believe me, believe me when I say
These are our finest days
I want to hold you, as tight as I can

Introducing Annie | Mt Laurel Lifestyle Newborn Session

I always think I'm lucky in getting to do this for a living, but there are days where I feel like this job just can't be real.  Spending time with this amazing family, definitely fall under that category.  They were one of my very first clients when their first daughter was born, and I have been so honored to now getting to help welcome their third beautiful baby!  To be able to be there for so many of life's amazing moments with this family, has been an honor and a privilege.  I can't wait to capture more memories for them as their babies continue to grow!  xoxo
