Waiting for Baby | Maternity Photography | NJ Photographer

Early this summer I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Jessica, my son’s former kindergarten teacher, as she awaited the arrival of her beautiful baby. At the time, she and her husband had no idea whether they were having a boy or a girl. They both chose to be surprised, even though friends and family were dying to know! As it turns out, they had a beautiful baby girl! I could not be happier for them! That little girl has two of the sweetest parents I have ever known, and an extensive family that will shower her with nothing but love and affection.


Zumba with Cindy! | Long Branch, NJ | NJ Photographer

Over the summer, my amazing Zumba teacher and I took a trek to a little alley in Long Branch for a quick headhsot session. I’ve always loved the artwork on the walls, and I thought it would be the perfect place for the two of us to play around. Here are a few of the results. We both had a blast!

The Cannon Family | Family Photography | Philadelphia, PA

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing my dear friend Carey and her gorgeous family over Christmas this past year (yes I know, this blog post is far overdue!) We all met at her sister Kathleen’s house in Philadelphia, and had an absolute blast playing in and around her yard.  We never took ourselves quite too seriously, and while we got some stunning portraits, we had a ton of shots with everyone goofing off just a bit.  It’s no wonder I love the Cannon family.

The Grove | A Late Summer’s Eve | NJ Wedding Photography | Cedar Grove, NJ

This past summer I had the honor and pleasure of photographing the wedding of my dear friends Keith & Sylvine.   My husband was the officiant, and both the bridal party and guest list were made up of a close group of friend’s and family.  The ceremony and reception were held on a clear Friday evening at The Grove in Cedar Grove, New Jersey.  The Bride was given away by her father, who flew in from Paris to attend.

Keith is a musician, and has plays with several bands.  One of them came down from Boston to make a special appearance for the reception.  They are not normally a wedding band, but they had the bride and groom and all of their guests dancing for hours.  The next night, many of the guests made their way to the Underground Lounge in New York City for a Saturday night jam session with the rest of Keith’s bands.  Photos of that night will follow in the next post!

I am so proud to have been able to capture the evening.  Keith & Sylvine ~ I love you and wish you all the joy in the world!
