Marlie Lately

It’s been a long time since we have posted photos of Marlie and our Labradoodle Maggie.  Marlie is an official toddler.  Her trademark characteristic these days is independence. She wants to do everything by herself with little to no help from mom and dad.  She likes to feed herself with big girl utensils which results in 3 outfit changes a day. She loves to put on her own clothes even if it means two legs wind up in one pant leg or her arm and head are both through the neck hole.  She loves to hold Maggie’s leash and fortunately Maggie has a soft spot for Marlie so she will walk by her side for at least a few minutes. Marlie is amazed by the world around her.  She gasps with shock and wonder at fire trucks, trains, birds chirping outside.  She also uses her gasp of shock to tattle on herself when she does something wrong.  It is an absolute riot. Our days are filled with daily discoveries around the house and yard, singing all the catchy little toddler tunes, and talking with Marlie because she sure has a lot to say (apparently we understand more than the average Joe but it’s crystal clear to us).

Shooting season is in full swing and we are off to an amazing 2011.  One wedding was at the Jones Beach theatre which was super unique. Engagement sessions and portrait sessions are filling up our weekly calendars. We are hosting meetings for all of our sessions and soon to be clients during the days and some evenings.  It’s amazing we even have time to spend with Marlie.  Somehow it all works, with the support of our amazing nanny and the extra help from our parents, we are forever grateful. We count our blessings that our work and life are so fulfilling and everything just seems to fall into place.

Happy Wedding Season!

Marlie won this Dora at the local carnival. She totally expected that she could hold Dora’s hand and Dora would walk next to her. We are still trying to help her understand this one.

She absolutely loved the rides with Daddy. I’m not into spinning so Eric has to step up for this kind of thing.

Jamie & Jason’s Wedding photos in Hoboken, NJ

We had the extreme pleasure of photographing portraits for the talented photographer Jamie K and her husband Jason. When she asked us, we were completly honored. How great it is to be asked by a fellow colleague to photograph them, right?  No!  This good feeling was quickly surpassed by our nerves.

Regardless of the pressure, the shoot was a blast. Jamie and Jason were incredible and so much fun to shoot.  They are madly in love and were just ecstatic to be getting married that day.  They were completely present to eachother and enjoying the shoot, yet quick to laugh at themselves.

I can’t help but bust her chops, you would think that a wedding photographer would be on time for her session? Nope! she was held up by hair and makeup.  Go figure!

Best wishes for a life full of love and happiness together.  Thanks for the session, it was a lot of fun!

Be Creative Photography Mother’s Day Special

Mother’s Day is only 1 month away (May 8th). Do you have a gift for your Mom yet? A gift certificate for family photography is the perfect way to say “Mom, you are amazing! Look at this beautiful family you have created!”.

We are giving away 3 discounts to the first customers who book
a spring photo session or purchase a gift certificate for Mother’s Day.
Hurry and email us or call 201.540.9779 to receive a $200 print credit.

The spring landscape is luscious, colorful, and the mood is just right for capturing beautiful moments of your family. Flowers fade away as quickly as they blossom so there is no time to wait. Spring was our absolute favorite time to shoot last year which is one of the many reasons we are so anxious to get outside and do what we do best! Not to mention the cabin fever we are all suffering from over the longest winter EVER. We discovered amazing new locations including mansions, gardens, farms and forests that are glorious in the Spring. So please contact us for a fun photo session.

If you did not receive our newsletter and wish to sign up please let us know via email and we’d be happy to add you to our list.
