Ryan and Gina Maternity Shoot

I had the pleasure of capturing some memories of Gina’s adorable baby bump at the Barclay Farm Museum. Ryan and Gina’s first babe will be the BEST Christmas gift, as he/she is due to arrive right after the holiday! I love that they are going to be surprised whether its a boy or girl (my hubby and I are doing the same!). The love between these sweeties was PALPABLE during their shoot, and I can only imagine how much love will be poured into their little babe! :)

Dave, Melissa, Ella and Emmy

Holy FARM HEAVEN! This shoot was one of my favorite to date! I knew that karma was going to reward us with a great session since the weather had this shoot rescheduled multiple times for a month! But this was even better than expected. This gorgeous couple and their SWEET, beautiful little girls were so much fun to work with, AND I’m a happy girl any time there are animals involved in the shoot! I got to meet their adorable, energetic 10 month old pup, Sam. And this majestic horse was nice enough to let us snap some photos of him engaging with the family ;) MORE FARMS AND PRETTY TUTU DRESSES PLEASE!

Rob, Kelly and RJ

I got to meet this sweet family in Elmer, NJ. We had plans to meet at Parvin State Park and while I was down there scoping out the lighting situation, I passed this ADORABLE little flower farm called Parvins Mill Flowers. The owner was sweet enough to let us use their gorgeous rows of zinnias for some pictures! And can we talk about this HANDSOME little devil, RJ?! I mean when you’re this cute, an ear infection ain’t got nothing on you! He was such a trooper for these pictures, even while not feeling well. Oh, and you’ll always score extra points with me if you include your 4 legged friend :D

Bob, Kelly and Mila

My husband and I have known Bob and Kelly for years as we all held summer jobs at the same swim club! It’s been such a privilege to watch their beautiful family grow, and the little angel in these photos is their 9 month old, blue-eyed little miracle, Mila! Is she not the CUTEST little pumpkin?! After a thus far gloomy and rainy autumn, the sun finally decided to peek out just in time for our shoot!

Joe, Randi and Cole

THIS family. They were the sweetest little bunch. I got to capture this precious bunch in Ocean City, NJ on September 16. Cole is a 6 month old, active little man who loved moving around and playing in the waves! Randi and Joe’s love for each other and Cole is glaringly evident in their facial expressions of every picture, and it was such an honor to capture this love.

Emmi in Brigantine

Is there anything better than family vacation?? No one stressing about work, no pressing timelines, just quality time and relaxing on the beach…and treating yourself to ice cream at night! :) Here’s a couple images I nabbed of Emmi enjoying her time down the shore.

Emilia Marian

05.07.18. The birth of my niece was one of the BEST days of my life. Being an aunt has truly taught me new levels of love. Even more amazing was seeing my sister slide right into her new role of motherhood as if it was always meant to be her path. Here are some pictures of Emmi’s first day in the world :)

Pacific Northwest travel photography

My husband, Chris, and I traveled to Seattle and the San Juan Islands in late August. Although it was chilly and the scenery was smokey from the wildfires in surrounding states, the views where unparalleled. Our favorite activities included hiking in Moran State Park on Orcas Island, whale watching in the Haro Strait, and exploring the public market in Seattle. It was such a great trip to wrap up the end of the summer and enjoy some time with each other before the craziness of the school year started!
