Joann and Neil are just around the corner from a new chapter in their lives (and one of the best!)- PARENTHOOD! They adore each other and it's easy to see, that they are going to adore the sweet baby they bring into the world. Boy or girl? Who knows! Either way, there will be love, and a whole bunch of it. Congrats Joann and Neil! There's nothing better than a sweet baby to call your own! Sit back and enjoy their maternity session photographs taken at the beautiful Smithville Mansion, in Mt. Holly, NJ!
Blake is turning one today, and to document this special time, we met at Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly to get some great shots of him and his awesome mommy and daddy. We had a great time exploring and finding fun spots to entertain a one-year-old. Blake is a totally happy, smiley guy- which makes my job easier! To make him the happiest little guy ever- we ended with a cake smash! Didn't his mommy do an awesome job coordinating his outfit and this adorable cake?! Happy Birthday, Blake! Keep smiling :)
About one year ago, Lauren contacted me to take her maternity photographs. I was delighted- she was an absolutely stunning momma-to-be! Who would have thought that almost a year later I would be photographing her 9-month-old and I would be the pregnant one?! Oh the irony! Meet Autumn. She's nine months old and JUST as happy and smiley as her momma! She's a photographer's dream- happy and keeping constant eye contact with me- unheard of!
Seeing how adorable Lauren, Tony, and Autumn were made me sooooo excited for my little girl! What more could you want except a happy little family?
About one year ago....
This makes my heart melt
Holden is turning two. Feels like just yesterday I was photographing his first birthday- turns out it was a year ago :) This year, he moves much faster, talks more, and is even more adorable with his cute little hairdo (if that's possible!). We met at Cooper River to have some fun, which included: playing with a trash truck, a soccer ball, a chalkboard, and let's not forget chasing me around like a dinosaur. In conclusion- a totally fun evening! Holden is a happy little guy and I think we totally captured that!
On a Saturday morning, I went over to Alaina's house to capture her adorableness at two-years-old in her backyard. Alaina is a sweet little girl who loves her mama, pups, and playing with her dad. I'm so thankful for sweet little girls like her because it helps me imagine what my sweet pea could be like- and it's so comforting! We got some shots on a turquoise chair that Candice (Alaina's mom) thrifted and painted- absolutely adorable! We had fun blowing bubbles, playing with a chalkboard, and playing with the pups. Enjoy!
As you might have noticed, I have quite a few nieces and nephews. Today, my youngest niece turned one! I cannot believe how quickly time flies by! A couple of weeks ago we went to Cooper River Park for a one-year-old session. The best sessions always get a little messy at the end with a cake smash! Happy Birthday, Andria! <3
Maci Claire entered this world when she was good and ready. A week past her due date and friends and family could not wait a moment longer. Turns out she was well worth the wait! I've been friends with Maci's mommy (Kristina) for a couple of years now and to see her become a mommy was absolutely awesome. Kristina and her husband, PJ, are thrilled to have Maci in their lives and I'm sure Maci feels pretty lucky too!
You may have seen Katelyn on the blog before... I photographed her about a year ago when she was just born (and just a teenie little babe) and also this summer in LBI. With Christmas was upon us, we got some shots of Katelyn in her Christmas pjs near the tree. Then we ventured outside for sunlight and playtime. There was a gorgeous blueberry farm behind us and her favorite two pups running around us. It was the perfect backdrop! Enjoy!
I first met Kevin when he was just a newborn back in April. Life at six months is a little different now. Kevin is moving around, holding his bottle, and playing with his best bud- Cooper. Kevin's parents, Heather and Steve, might be the happiest parents I've ever met. We had a chance to sit and chat while we were waiting for Kevin to wake up from a nap and the way they talk about him is so adorable. It was even more adorable when Kevin woke up and I got to see Heather and Steve in full-on parent mode. They are such an adorable, smiley, little family. Here are some shots we got to celebrate Kevin turning six months old. ...and check out Kevin's adorable Halloween costume! Enjoy!
Gorgeous Lauren, is expecting her first baby in less than a month. Lauren, her boyfriend, Tony, and I met up at Cooper River one evening to get some maternity shots. She was so cooperative and willing to get great shots- a photographer's dream. Sit down, stand up, lay down- Lauren, thank you so much! Tony was such a gentleman, helping her up, making sure she was okay- totally adorable couple! Lauren is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see her little cutie!
