Hudson & Logan

Well my holiday season is slowing down as we get closer and closer to the big day. I had a great time with Logan and Hudson tonight at their house. Mom wasn't sure if both boys would behave, but they did a fantastic job! They even got a treat at the end of the session!!

I'm sure Santa won't mind if they taste tested his plate of

Baby Aiden

I met Aiden's parents at the baby show I did a few weeks ago. I was so thrilled when Aiden's mommy called to tell me she had him and was ready for a portrait session. This little guy is only 8 days old. I love love love it when mommies call me to photograph their babies that young. That way the baby sleeps through most of the session and we can get some really cute shots. Here are some of the photos from Aiden's session.

Kingston & Azaria

Two sets of twins in less than a week, this must be my lucky month. I guess I should go play the lottery huh? I met Kingston and Azaria's mommy at the baby fair I did a few weeks ago. She entered my drawing for a free session and viola; she won! Like most mommies she was a bit nervous about how her children would behave, and they were angels. No really, TOTAL ANGELS!! Not one tear, not one fuss, not one whimper, not one drop of unease. Both children were content and happy. I'll take no smiles over no tears any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Here are a few images from this afternoon's session.

Maria, Sophia, and Matteo

This afternoon I met with Maria, Sophia, and Matteo (Oh, and their parents too). I was excited to shoot with them but expected total chaos. I mean Sophia and Maria were only 9mos old and Matteo is 21months. That's THREE children under TWO!! But to my surprise, the session was AWESOME!! Everyone one was under control, no meltdowns, and very little tears. We got three children and two parents photographed in just over two hours. Here are a few from today.

Mr. Austin

Today's playdate was with Austin and his parents. I drove over to their home for some fun holiday pictures. Mr. Austin was a bit cranky but pulled through like a champ. I can't wait to see this little guy when he gets older.

Little Miss Gretchen

The three things I hear at EVERY child session is this:

1. I don't think I could ever do your job
2. You have the patience of a saint
3. You must really love your job

Well I honestly have to say two and three are totally I met Gretchen's mommy a few weeks ago at the Edison It's A Baby expo. We finally got together today for little Gretchen's photo shoot and guess what? Little Gretchen was having none of Mommy was worried that we wouldn't get any good images but I assured her that I'll come through and I sure did. Here is one of their family photos and two of "Little Miss Sunshine"

Here is the ONLY sleeping photo we got of Little Miss Sunshine.

And as I was putting this post together, Gretchen's mommy sent me an email saying that she fell asleep in the car and is PASSED OUT. It

Miss Mia

Wow, what are the odds of me photographing two beautiful little girls with the name Mia? Today I met with Mia and her mommy. I had an AWESOME time. Now I know I say all little babies are cute, but look at those cheeks!! I just wanted to eat her up. She was sooooo good, and let us buzz through a few sets before she put her foot down and demanded a nap. We only got a few smiles out of this little beauty, but her serious face is still to die for. She was such a little doll, I can't wait to see her again.

Mi-Be and Gi-Ni

I was so excited when after almost two years of talking on Facebook Jen (aka mommy) and I decided to do a session for her girls. Jen is the talented crafty lady who made the headbands for the fairies in July. I feel like I've been right there with Mia as she grew this first year, and I can't wait to read all about Gianna's life too. Mia was in a bit of a mood, but we were able to get a few. Miss Gianna was an absolute doll! Once I got her to sleep (literally only about 10-15mins) we were able to manipulate and mold her exactly how we wanted her.


Without further delay, here are Mia Bella, and Gianna Nicole.

It's A Baby Expo

This weekend I had the pleasure of being a vendor at the It's A Baby Expo in Edison, NJ. I've never done this type of show before so it was a learning experience. Overall I had an AWESOME time. I got to see what business owners offered as well as lament over all the stuff I wish I had when Justin was a There was something there for every one's needs. I got to walk around really quick before the show started on Saturday morning and say "Hi' to the other vendors. There were so many great things to look at I wish I took a picture so I could show you.

I'd like to thank all the mommies and daddies who came out and visited my booth. It was a pleasure to meet each and every one of you. Please take the time and browse my blogsite and then head over to my facebook page and fan me to find out the new "magic word".

Here are a couple of pictures of my booth from day 1 and day 2. Next year I know what I'd like to improve upon but I'm still very proud of my company, my work, and my booth.

Remember to book your holiday sessions soon!!

Frank, Angela, Lillian, and Charlie (oh my!)

I look forward to seeing this family every year. Angela and I met by chance when I did some work for her and it's been a great relationship since then. It's been my honor to watch their family grow from two to three to four. They are truly one of my favorites to visit. Here are a few images from today's session.
