Rachel & Ed’s Wedding

Rachel and Ed are perfect for each other.  Its just a fact of life.  Like one of those things you just know when you see it, like that the sun is warm and flowers are beautiful.  You just know it.  The more you are around them, the more this feeling grows and grows.  It radiates between them and before you know it, you’re smiling too.

I am super excited to be offering Holiday Mini Sessions this year!  This is the perfect opportunity to get great family photos as well as those fun shots for Holiday Cards.  ​Break out the tacky sweaters and hot cocoa!  I will be offering a great holiday set up at Riverdale Elementary in Strawberry Plains.  If you haven’t heard of Riverdale, it’s a historic building that has been restored by Connie and Wayne Whitehead and is now available as a photography venue.  Its got a lot of character and I’m excited to be able to offer my clients a new location that we can use for Mini Sessions no matter what the weather is like.  Spots are limited so please contact me to reserve your time slot as soon as possible!

We all have our favorite moments at weddings.  Moments that make us tear up, moments that always make us laugh, moments that you never forget and moments that we wish we could capture forever.  That is the favorite part of my job, capturing all those special moments for you to hold onto.

I am so lucky to have these two in my life.  We call them Speed Racer’s adopted Grandparents.  They’re not Grandparents by blood but they have been an integral part of his life since he was born.  I have loved getting to know these two and being accepted as one of the family.

Leiah

IMG_1726

I absolutely love when my job allows me to reconnect with old friends and coworkers!  I was thrilled when Heather contacted me (we used to work together) saying that she had just had her new baby girl and would love some family portraits.  We had so much fun and it was such a privileged to meet such a sweet baby girl.

Leiah was born premature so she is just a tiny little bundle of joy.  We did these photos just a couple weeks after she was born so she was still sleepy, tiny, and precious.

Leiah’s Dad, David, is in the Marines so we had fun doing a lot of different shots with his uniform.  Amazingly, the uniform survived without any accidents!

After talking with Heather and David, they let slip that they had never had portraits done of just the two of them, not to mention as a family.  So while Grandma and Grandpa took a shift feeding Leiah, we snuck off to do just a couple pictures of them.

Just as a side note: I am a huge fan of making sure you have couple portraits taken at many stages of life.  This isn’t just because it’s what I do, but because everyone needs some photographs that show the love that you feel for each other.  It reminds us of whats important and gives us a visual reminder when times are tough.

David and Heather radiate love not just for each other but for Leiah too.  You can tell they are going to be fabulous parents!  Congrats you two!  I can’t wait to see Leiah through each stage of life grow in the loving environment you have created for her.
