Fall Foliage Family Portraits, NJ

What happens when you schedule your fall foliage family session in advance?

You get first dibs on securing a day like this one!!!!

Last year we had the pleasure of photographing families on some of the most glorious fall foliage days of the year. Nothing beats the golden sunlight reflecting through orange and yellow leaves of the autumn trees. Now I sound like a photography nerd and I’m guilty as charged! If you are interested in a fall family or children’s session please don’t hesitate to call and secure your date. It’s not too early!

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.

These Kate Spade Wedding Shoes were a perfect touch to Danielle’s fall themed wedding. The giraffe brooch was Danielle’s mothers. It’ss a truly beautiful touch to add something sentimental to a bridal bouquet.

The guys taking a stroll towards the ceremony

They had a quote at the top of their wedding programs from Princess Bride: That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying, “As you wish,” what he really meant was, “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.

The readings during their ceremony were “I Love You”, by Roy Croft and “Desiderata”, by Max Erhmann. Desiderata in particular had a very personal family connection.

In their vows instead of saying I Do… they answered “As You Wish” to add a little unexpected humor to the ceremony.

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!
