It’s that time of year. I’ve opened my fall mini session calendar to new clients. I have a few slots left so if you’d like to book, please contact me as soon as possible!
It’s not always easy to capture your child’s stages on a regular basis. If you’re like most busy parents, it can be hard enough making time to see the doctor when you’re sick — regularly scheduled portraits can be the last thing on your mind. But then the years speed by and the next thing we know, the sleepy little newborn nestled in blankets is a speedy little toddler racing around the house.
We are all overloaded and on the go. If you’re like me, you look at your calendar and wonder when you will have a free moment to eat dinner before racing off to another activity. Between the endless activities, school work and sports, free time is a luxury. We do our best to capture what we can with our phones and personal cameras — the soccer goal, their first school play and the rest we store away in our memories.
As quickly as this summer came and went, so do the early years of our children. Memories are poor albums. Iphone pictures rarely leave the hard drive. It may not be feasible to schedule sessions to capture all their milestones but if you can make the time, I recommend it and not just because it’s what I do for a living. The older I get the more I value my printed history. It’s not just my story now. It’s my daughter’s story and my son’s story and our family’s story and it will only live on in pictures.
A few weeks ago I had the chance to photograph this gorgeous Oak Knoll student for her senior year. I don’t get the chance to photograph seniors often but when I do I love it! This beautiful girl brought along some special items to include which made the session even more fun!
If you are looking for a nj senior photographer, make sure you contact me!
I couldn’t pick just one look for this little girl. I had so much fun with the faces she made for me when we played peek a boo. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. If you’ve never been to the town of Oldwick in Hunterdon county, I highly recommend it. It’s a quaint little town right off I78 filled with antique stores, a great farm for apple picking and lots of rolling hills. A short drive north and you are at one of my favorite places for cheese — Valley Shepard Creamery!
A note on Fall booking — I am off to a brisk start this year and have very few weekends remaining in the early part of the fall. If you are interested in a session, please contact me as soon as possible for your desired slot. I will be limiting travel as well but I am happy to introduce you to some of my favorite local spots!
I can’t say enough about this session and how enjoyable it was for me. I’ve had lots of sessions with little boys lately and they always have one thing in common — their energy! As a mom to a boy, I can appreciate their ability to move from one thing to another like the energizer bunny. They just keep going and going (until they don’t but that’s usually around nap time or bedtime).
This little guy was no different. And I was amazed by the variety of images we were able to capture. I love capturing families where they live because it tells their own particular story. I hope you enjoy reading this. I have a few NJ family photography sunset sessions remaining for the summertime. I’ve also opened my calendar up for the early fall. I have some beautiful locations picked out so if you are interested in booking a session, please contact me. Peak weekends go quickly!
