On a personal note....

Yesterday morning my husband was involved in a car accident. He is ok, but suffering from back pain. I'm sharing this with you for a few reasons.

1) when you see a police, fire, or emt vehicle coming your way DO NOT STOP IN THEIR DIRECT PATH!! Just move aside or step on the gas to get out of their way.

2) Not all police officers are jerks. I happen to know plenty of men and women who do their job with pride, professionalism, and heart. They take tons of abuse and do their best to help people in spite of that abuse. They truely have a thankless job.

3) Next time you stop to complain about an officer being a jerk, stop and think about your attitude toward him/her.

4) Every cop goes to work praying they come home to their families when their shift is over. Do you do that when you go to your nice desk job for the ABC company?

It takes a brave soul to become a police officer/fireperson/emt so stop complaining about how they are doing their job and just say thank you for them doing their job.

My big sister and my niece

Today I took photos of my niece and my sister. This was an impromptu session, but under the pressure of a silly 9yr old and an uber picky sister they were happy with the images.

Thanks for looking.

Busy Weekend!!

Well on Saturday I had the pleasure of taking photos for one of my favorite families. They are a fun and sweet bunch. For now they just did school pictures, but I'll get all 8 of them next month for Christmas shots. Here are a few to look at.

Today my mom came over to help me refinish my office and studio. I'm so excited about the changes we've made. I'll post pictures later this week when I'm finished cleaning and hanging up some pictures on my walls.

Good News

Today I was invited to put up a display at our local library. My display will be up for the entire month of December!! I'm very proud, honored, and excited about it. Once I get it up I'll take pictures to show you.
While walking Obi this week I took my camera and got some really nice photos. I will probably make quote posters out of them sooner or later.

Two more little boys!!

I was just surrounded by the cutest little "men" this week...lol. Today I shot these two handsome little ones. Kids are hard to shoot, but I do love it when nail the perfect shot that captures their personalities.

Sweet Little Boys...

Today I got to photograph two of the cutest little boys ever. Of course they had me running all over the place trying to keep them both in the same spot, but in the end I think mom will be happy.

Today Miss (soon to be Mrs) Ronnikiea came over to have me take her maternity photos. It's always a pleasure to have her in front of my camera. If she looks familiar, I took some model shots for her portfolio. I hope she brings that little prince she's carrying to me when he's born.

Artist Showcase

Today I spent the day outside (in the cold...lol) at my towns artist showcase on main street. I think it was a success event. I had a really good time dispite it being so cold. I wasn't there to sell prints, but just to show my work, pass out information, and coupons. I also got to see some of the other talented artists in the community.

If you were at the showcase and didn't get a coupon sheet, send me an email and I'll get them to you.

Autism Walk Day

Hey Everyone!!

Today was the North Central Jersey Autism Walk. We had a great walking team and a great fundraising effort. In total we raised about $2600 and still counting. We will be collecting money until the end of the year. It's not too late if you haven't donated yet, you can still help support AJ's Groovers by clicking the link on the right side of the page.

Here are a few pictures from today, and as you can see, every family member was expected to walk (or roll)...lol.

(This is Indy, not Obi)

(ok, this is Obi...lol)

I'm so proud...

For those that don't know, my husband has written a book. The book is about motivation and getting your mind right. If it weren't for my husband I wouldn't have my company, I wouldn't be a professional photographer, and I wouldn't be doing what I love. He is my reason and inspiration for being where I am today.
