Be Creative Photography Kids

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any personal photos on the blog. I thought I’d kick off the summer with a snippet from our recent trip to Jamaica. This trip was a “Happy Mother’s Day Trip” to me and I enjoyed every second. My wish was for no cooking, cleaning, social media, email or iPads. Many thanks to my husband and kiddos for making my wish come true. I read two books, I ate too much, I gushed over my two children. We snorkeled, sailed, ate, played in the pool, and ate some more. We left the kids at the Kids Club so Eric and I could have some romantic walks and swims on this beautiful beach. We don’t get to do vacations like this often but when we do, we never regret it!

We did not take many pictures at all. We were focused on being present and not ruining our phones/cameras in the water or sand. I was ok with that during the week, but now that it’s over I wish I had more. We did take out the Nikons for a quick session on the beach and I’m so happy we have these. Through these photos I can feel the air, sand and sea. And I’ll always remember this time, the innocence of my children, the unconditional love, the joy and laughter.

So here they are. Marlie (6) and Miles (3). Marlie is a spunky little Kindergartener who recently lost her first tooth. She loves dance, soccer, T-ball, the outdoors and art. Miles is a happy little three year old. He loooooves his big sister. He is rapidly learning his ABC’s, numbers, colors and new concepts that surprise me every day. He’s very proud that he has recently learned to use the potty. He literally says, “I’m so proud of me”. I’m proud of him too and so happy I will never have to buy any swim diapers for him! I’m sure many moms can relate to this excitement. These kids truly are the best of friends. I can’t even begin to describe the joy it brings when I see them together like this.

Evan’s Newborn Photos in Northern NJ

Stephanie and Mike are the loving new parent’s of adorable baby Ethan. We photographed their wedding at Tappan Hill Mansion years ago. Recently we had the pleasure of reconnecting to capture their newborn session in Northern NJ. Baby Evan was about 10 days old and full of personality. I love his cozy sleepy photos but it’s his personality shining through that really touched my heart. Plus the wallpaper and decor in his nursery is to die for! He is the perfect little baby and we couldn’t be happier for Stephanie and Mike. To see more images of babies, head on over to our gallery of kids and babies on our website.

Beautiful Baby Girl Charleigh’s Newborn Photos | Ramsey, NJ

Excited to introduce a sampling of baby Charleigh’s newborn pictures. She was such a sweetheart!  A total mush, she loved to be in the comfort of mommy’s arms.  Charleigh’s mom and dad received a gift certificate for their newborn session. What a lovely gift! I was thrilled to be a part of this super sweet present for the new mom and dad! You can purchase gift certificate’s for friends by contacting us through the website.

I love how her sweet little hands are resting on her cheeks. Big blue, open eyes make for adorable newborn photos.

Fast asleep in her rocker. This is one of my favorite scenes for a newborn photo because before you know it Charleigh will be sitting in that chair reading stories. I love to see them grow.

Charleigh’s mom had this beautiful hair tie. It’s always nice when my client’s think ahead and purchase some special accessories for their babies’ photo shoot.

A new home for a growing family! We braved the cold for this shot but it was so worth it!

Spring Break Special, Be Creative Photography Wyckoff, NJ

Dear Friends,

 

Spring Break is here, YIPPIE!  Don’t suffer from stay-cation boredom.  We have some great ideas for you and the little ones. How about a picnic at a beautiful arboretum with trails, bridges, fountains, gardens and more? Or a nature adventure at a gorgeous botanical garden with plenty of trees to climb, fields to run free, flowers to wow, and butterflies to chase?

 

We’d love to take you there for a fun afternoon that will be sure to delight you and the kids. And the best part is that we will document the whole adventure by taking beautiful pictures along the way.

 

So make a date with us, pack a blanket, your sun hat, butterfly catchers and LETS GO!

 

Best part about this invitation is that with these photos you will have a jump start on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts for your loved ones. Your husband and wife will love how you chose to spend a day of your vacation!  And the memories will be priceless.

 

Now, the not so good news.  Spring Break was like yesterday. There are only so many days in a weeks vacation so please don’t hesitate to call us and book your session as there are only a few spots available!

 

As if all of these reasons weren’t good enough to book an afternoon with Be Creative, here is one more!  The Spring Fairy has dropped off three $100 gift certificates that we can’t wait to give away.

 

We hope to hear from you soon and we can’t wait to reveal our Spring Break destinations. This offer expires April 20th!
Sunshine and Good Times!
