If you have been following my blog, you will recognize my friend Jenn and her two sons. This was the second shoot in their back to back session, and this is also a preview for my 2017 Holiday Minis! Yep, we’ll be using my “new” old Dodge all decked out for the season! There are only a few spots left for these already, and I imagine they will go quickly once this post goes live. This field is right around the corner from my house, near the train station. I have been eyeballing it for a while now. Every time I was stopped at the stop sign, there is was, practically begging me to come and utilize it. So I did. Glad I followed my instincts because it is definitely a new fave. Jenn and the boys were so patient during this shoot. It was the second one of the day and the boys were getting tired, but they were such troopers. I am so pleased with this session. I love this family. I love my truck. I love this Holiday set-up. And I love-love-love my job. I am so lucky to be able to say it every single day.
I met little Luciana when she was just a newborn! This shoot was for her second birthday, but my goodness does she have an old soul. Luciana, Mom, and Mom’s sister all met me at Batsto on a pretty weeknight last month. Luciana was dressed in her finest tutu from Wraredoll, but was not at all happy to be there! That is, until she found a puddle. In her immaculate ivory dress, Luciana played, stomped, splashed, and sat comfortably in the muddy Batsto rain puddle. Happy as a…well, a two year old in a mud puddle! Luc has modeled for Diapers.com, Osh Kosh, and many other companies, so I knew she was not stranger in front of the camera. But sometimes it is the unpredictable that makes a session so beautiful. I hope you had a happy birthday Luciana, you sure did make me smile!
I have not blogged about it yet, but recently I bought a new prop. A big one. With four wheels. A 1983 cobalt blue Dodge pick-up truck that I found on Craigslist! So, needless to say, I was super….no….MEGA excited to use it but I knew I needed the perfect clients for the shoot. The more I rolled it over in my brain, the more I thought of Jennifer and her two boys. I know Jenn through the wedding industry. She owns Happily Ever After Hair, an on-location hair service for special events, and she is extremely busy. She is also a super-hero-level single mom to her boys Braden and Nick. So I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for Jenn, the truck, the boys, and me! I mean, it was an ideal idea….if I do say so myself lol. During the shoot I literally wanted to crawl through my lens and be a part of this experience. It exceeded my expectations. The love you see here is 100% true. These boys love their mama and she loves them right back- big time. I was so excited about these images, that I actually shot their Holiday Session right after this one! This truck was what initially excited me about this shoot, but very quickly the truck became secondary, and this beautiful family was all I could see.
This could actually be the cutest couple I ever photographed. Meet Danielle and Carl; friends, fiancés, fabulous. They are set to be married next year at Brigalias, and its going to be so fun! We decided that this engagement shoot had to be in OC. When Danoielle and Carl
showed up in their Mr. & Mrs. shirts from Etsy, some Converse, and rockin’ some Ray Bans I knew it was going to be awesome. Wonderland Pier and the classic boardwalk were a perfect backdrop for this slightly nostologic yet very current couple. These two were a find through some Hammonton friends, and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know them. We had a great day together, we ended up at the Music Pier and went out of the jetty too for some amazing shots. When we were out there on the rocks, a surprise wave came up and got us soaked- and that would definitely annoy some folks- well not these two, they thought it was hilarious, and I did too…. if the water would have hit my camera tho, well now that would have been a different story lol! Counting down the days to this wedding next year. In the meantime, I hope you and this happy couple enjoy the results of our fun filled session.
I have done lifestyle sessions for a few of my clients, and I always get questions as to what exactly that is, and I wanted to share a recent one with you all. A lifestyle session is when a client chooses to host the shoot in their home. Simple as that! It’s not my studio or a location, it is very personal to the family. I always feel pretty honored that someone wants to let me into their personal living space. I have worked with this Franklinville family previously, but that was before the arrival of Olivia. Actually, in our last session mom was pregnant with Olivia, but just didn’t know yet! So this past Spring, Mom contacted me with the big news and we booked a date. I shot for about 2 hours. We used some of my wraps from my collection and I even got to shoot in the nursery- which I LOVED. It was inspired by a Restoration Hardware spread. Mom fell in love with the Sharon Montrose animal prints, and ordered them directly from the artist. Big sister Maddie was full of loving energy, curious and proud. I think shooting lifestyle sessions makes clients feel natural and comfortable. They are surrounded by the comfort of their own home and that can make a big difference, especially with children. Enjoy!
There is nothing more beautiful than seeing love right in front of our eyes. Capturing special moments with my lens is my job, and being a mother has greatly impacted this work.
My photos express innocence & intimacy, love & light, and pure moments of joy. Basically- I document love.
