Ahh, Charlotte. She showed up JUST in the nick of time for me, and was (bittersweetly) my last NJ newborn. I arrived for her session on her 5th day (thank you, Mama!) and she was a little angel!  Mom requested a bucket setup, and I just love how tiny and sweet Charlotte looks in it. Mom also wanted to incorporate a bunny theme into a few images, so we used my little knit bonnet (one of my favorites) and a cute plush from her nursery. I really love this session not only because the images are personalized and pretty, but because I had such a wonderful time getting to know Charlottes parents and grandmother. It’s a special one 🙂

Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to catch that smile she threw for mommy!

Taylor was such a gorgeous sweetie. Her mom had her childhood ballet shoes and a tutu that she wanted incorporated. These images are going to be such a special keepsake for years to come! When I came back for their ordering appointment, mom and dad were surprised and delighted with every image because they didn’t watch while I worked. It made things extra fun!

Thanks again, K family!

I was lucky enough to meet baby Ava and her sweet moms before I left NJ this summer. She put up a little bit of a fight at first, but of course…we won, haha. I love the way our rainbow shot turned out, and Ava was happy to be curled up like a little bug. We had such a nice time getting to know each other, I just love being welcomed into my clients homes. 🙂

Congrats again, A+K!

I can’t believe I haven’t shared Arabella’s session yet! She was a little doll way back in April of this year.  Mama wanted to incorporate daddy’s Army fatigues into a few images, and I’m so pleased with the way it turned out.  I love how soft and feminine Arabella is against her Dad’s worn cam0, it’s just the sweetest thing. These new fam of three was a ball, we had quite a few chuckles and I know her mom lovvvved the images at ordering 🙂 Best part!

This little lady was one of my most anticipated babies of the year. She belongs to my very good friends (and my dentists) in Jersey City, Dr. Jen and Dr. Ari. Lucia is six weeks old today (thanks for the post, Mama) and since I’m finally settled here in Charleston, it’s time to share!

She was a little feisty at first, but once baby girl finally dozed off, she let me do my thing and even gave up a cute smirk! Isn’t she a beauty? But really, was there any chance she wouldn’t be? #nope

I’m sad I can’t barge…errr….pop in and see my friends now that I’m 800 miles away, but I HAVE to photograph Lucia before Christmas, so visits are mandatory 🙂 Love you Jen&Ari!

This session is going to be special to me for a very long time – it’s my first in Charleston! Mount Pleasant, specifically. Gorgeous sunset views like we had that night from Alhambra Hall are just part of the reason I decided to relocate to Charleston, it was perfection.

A little aside; people keep asking me why I’m moving to Charleston, so, in a nut shell, I’m simply Jersey’d out. I’m looking for a quieter, warmer (beachier), friendly place to call home and I think this is going to be a great fit.  The timing is right, I’m very excited to start fresh and even though I’ll have to do some rebuilding for my business, it’s going to be worth it. I think my style of family and newborn photography will find its’ own niche, no problem.

While I was apartment hunting back in June, I was able to do a session with the ‘A’ family. We had lots to chat about and the kiddos were adorable, I really had a great time getting to know them.

Alhambra Hall is going to be one of my favorite locations – with view of the Ravenel Bridge in the distance, plenty of water, and just enough tree cover to provide a bit of shade. Of course, who can resist a little wading in the water? By the end, little Miss Caitlin was ankle deep, hehe. I can’t wait for the next one!

Hello Charleston!

This family session I did in Jersey City last spring is one of my favorite examples to show when I say “indoor-outdoor” session, and I know my new Charleston clients will love it as well.

We started in the G family’s home with a studio setup for the kiddos, and boy were they adorable. I love how the two backdrops coordinate for both baby brother and big sister, the images will look so nice displayed together.

Later, we walked to our local park to catch the sunset, and it really worked out perfectly. The soft, diffused light adds a painterly element to the images.

I can’t express in words how important time of day is for your own family shoot, so I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

Devin was as good as gold for me back in May. His daddy is one of my oldest friends, so it was extra special and fun for me to meet this little sweetie. I especially love his parent images. He was so cozy, and you can really see how much he already looks like his mama!

Take note of those dimples and cleft chin…swoon ❤️ Congrats again Chris and Kate!

This was a fun one and a great example of how I we can achieve different looks in one location. From summer 2016…

Two-year-old Shea was so chatty and sweet during our shoot that she really turned a “meh” weekend into a completely lovely one for me. Allowing her tramp around in the dirt among the flowers right at the start of our session was pretty much the cutest thing ever. We counted them and looked at the colors. She was happy as a lark and totally comfortable as mom and dad watched nearby.

As the sun dipped and the light became nice and soft, we headed closer to the water to capture some sweet family moments against the pastel buildings across the river in Manhattan.

I’m so thrilled that the M family will have these images in print to decorate their new home in their new city very soon! Thanks guys!

I am going to miss my semi-annual sessions with the F family. I have loved this location in Manhattan, and of course, getting to know how wonderful they all are! Maybe I can come up again next Fall, Vanessa!
