A Mom and Her Men: New Jersey Family Photographer

We had a stretch of beautiful, warm, late-October weather in these parts this year, which made for some pretty perfect conditions for family photos. This lovely mom and her three favorite guys joined me on one of those perfect weather days to capture some special, fun family moments. What’s more, we got to mark an important milestone — the littlest man’s very first birthday! Big brother is so caring and attentive with his little bro, and did his part to make sure that the birthday boy was happy, giggling, and smiling for the camera. He did a great job for sure. 🙂 Here are a few highlights from a fun time with this sweet clan:

A Sister and Her Brothers: Sibling Session – New Jersey Family Photographer

What a treat it was to photograph these three! These kiddos are just gorgeous, inside and out. Even just being around them for a little while, it is easy to see that. And, from what I could tell, they are more than just siblings, they are friends too — which is pretty awesome. It was a bit of a chilly day when we went out to shoot, but these guys came ready for action. They had awesome smiles and fun poses ready to go, and even came up with their own shot ideas on the fly too. With Mom there to help us along, it made for a really great session — super-sweet and too much fun.

Family of Three on a Fall Afternoon: New Jersey Portrait Photographer

Fall family photo season is here once again, and I am so happy to be back to doing what I love, at what just so happens to be my favorite time of year.  I got to work with another really wonderful family and capture some happy memories for them (that’s the best part, and I feel truly blessed). We met on a gorgeous afternoon at a quiet park where we watched their little guy run, climb, and explore as much as he possibly could. He is so full of energy, so happy, so carefree, and is very obviously the apple of Mom and Dad’s eyes. It was a joy for me to photograph a few moments of this time in their lives together. Here are some highlights from our session:

Three Generations ~ New Jersey Family Photographer

There were birthdays galore and smiles all around during this wonderful family session from earlier this month. Grandma and Grandpa were visiting from out of state, and everyone gathered to celebrate multiple July birthdays, which several members of this family just so happen to share. In fact, the matriarch of the family explained that her daughters arranged the photo session with the whole clan as a gift to her for her birthday. How special is that? The closeness, love, and laughter this family shares is apparent, and I am honored to have been asked to capture a little of that for them. It was a lot of fun to work with all of them too. Here are a few highlights:

Summer Morning at the Park – New Jersey Family Photographer

A few weeks back, I got to spend a pretty summer morning at the park photographing this beautiful family. With every session I do, I feel so incredibly blessed to get to meet and work with such wonderful people — and this time was no different. Through the warmth and the sunshine of that early summer day, the little ones were just as sweet and smiley as a photographer could hope for. Big Sis is little natural on the other side of the lens — her poses made me grin. And, Baby Sis is a happy little doe-eyed bundle with a smile as big as the sky. Mom and Dad are pretty great themselves :-). Thanks so much to all of you for letting me capture a few special moments for you. Here are a few highlights from our session:

Mom, Dad, and Their Girls – Springtime in New Jersey – NJ Family Photographer

It is a joy for me to be back after a bit of a break with another family photo session post — just as it was a joy for me to get to photograph this lovely family a few weeks ago. We met at a vast and glorious park in north/central New Jersey. This state, you may be surprised to learn, is home to many really incredible, expansive parks, which make awesome backdrops for photo sessions and give the little ones tons of room to run (often a much-needed component in family photo shoots). As anyone who has ever pointed a camera at a toddler knows, it can be a bit of a challenge to get them stay still long enough to get a good shot, let alone to smile on cue. Trying to get the littlest member of this family to do those very things made for lots of fun and laughs that day. Big Sis, Mom, and Dad all got giggles out of her — and out of me at the same time. It is obvious, even just being around them for a little while, that these four share a great deal of love and a sweet, happy, joy-filled life together. I am grateful to have been invited to capture some of that, and hope they enjoy their photos for years to come.

Big Bro, Baby Sis, Mom & Dad – New Jersey Family Photographer

This wonderful family was on the other side of my lens a few months back for baby sister’s baptism — a special day indeed! I am, of course, thrilled to have gotten to spend another special time with them (and Mickey too!) at their laughter-filled family photo session on a glorious fall afternoon not too long ago. These four are lots of fun and obviously share tons of love. And, big brother and baby sister already share a very special bond. He is an excellent big brother, and it is easy to see that even at less than a year old, she thinks he is pretty great. It is the kind of sweetness you wish siblings everywhere could share not just in childhood, but throughout their lifetimes. Here are a few highlights from our session.
