Catching up and stuff...lol.

My...my...my... I have totally forgotten how much work a newborn is...lol. My little boy is growing and thriving beyond my wildest dreams. And he is making sure his mommy is always busy :o). In the past two months I have been busy with Holiday sessions. The early bird special went fantastic. I want to thank all the families who gave me a call this November and December to schedule their sessions. I honestly had a blast with each and every family. Each session turned out beautifully!! I didn't shoot much in 2009 because of being pregnant most of the year and having Justin at the end of August. However; the families I did choose to shoot have made this year great.

There are big things planned for 2010 so jump aboard for tons of fun, specials, and amazing images. Since I haven't been on top of my blogging lately I'm going to share a few images from my last few sessions and then take a break (yes another break...lol) from shooting families (mine not included...lol) until January 4th.

and of course I had to add my two angels to this update. AJ is 7 and Justin is almost 4mos.

Email me at PersonalTouchPhotography@comcast.net if you'd like to be put on my mailing list. There will be some specials that will only be advertised by email, some by only by my facebook fan page and some by this website.
Warmest Wishes,

Angie's Sweet 16

Well October 1st was my first day back to business as usual, and on October 2nd I shot Angie's sweet 16. What a way to just jump back in...lol. Angie was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! The camera totally loves this young lady. She had her party at the Ariana's Grand in Woodbridge. Let me tell you, that place is really beautiful. They went all out to include Angie's colors into the decoration of the room. SIMPLY STUNNING!! And don't get me started on the cake. It was made by Sweet Sweet Sue's and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. OK now that I've told you how BEAUTIFUL everything was...lol, here are a few images from last nights FUN!!

Princess Karly

OK, it's official... I am now on maternity leave!! Today was my last session before welcoming my own little bundle in a few days (or weeks...lol). This morning I got myself up and packed my bag to go visit Karly and her parents for a family shoot. Talk about loving... You could see how Karly's parents just adored her and were willing to do all sorts of silly things to make her smile (and it worked...lol). Below are two photos from today.

Baby Corey

I had the absolute pleasure to see one of my old clients again today. I met Annemarie in 2007 when she contacted me to shoot a boudoir session as a gift for her husband. Today we photographed her newborn son!! I was so excited when she told me she was pregnant a few months ago and I was equally excited when she emailed me when he was born. Below is one of the many sweet pictures from the day.

Miss Lillian & Mr Andrew

This morning I kicked off my busy day by taking a ride up to New York to photograph these two little cherubs. You may remember Little Lillian from her December shoot with me when she was only about 2 or 3 weeks old. Look how big she's gotten. She looks JUST like her dad...lol. Andrew is her cousin and he was such a handsome and happy little boy.

Here are a few from today. I can't wait to go through all of the pictures.

Proud Wife!!

OK I'm going to play the doting wife right now...lol. In 2007 my husband self published his book "Find A Way To Make A Way", and it did well. Last year his book was picked up by Tate Publishing and will be released this summer as a second edition.

Please support his efforts to make a difference in someone's life. Take a look at his blog and show him a little love...lol.


PS - That is an awesome photograph, I wonder who took it :o)

This afternoon I had a great time hanging out with handsome and talented Dakarai. He called me a few weeks ago to scheduled his session. He told me that he wanted to update his acting/modeling portfolio and get some new head shots in the process. I was all set this morning to be stuck inside due to all this rain we've been having. Imagine my surprise when DK rang my bell and it was sunny outside. We immediately decided to take advantage of the suddenly beautiful weather and boy did we luck out. We took a nice stroll around the Sewaren and Perth Amboy waterfronts and got some really great shots. I can't wait to work with DK again in a few weeks. Here is one shot from today.
