Best Family Photographer Hunterdon County, New Jersey

My amazing best friend in Frenchtown just happens to have an amazing location behind their NJ home.  Not only is the location gorgeous, but her family is pretty beautiful too.  We are lucky, our kids are in school together and they all really love each other.  Our eldest girls are best friends and can never seem to hang out enough with each other.  They are really one of the best families out there.

We took advantage of their outdoor space to take their family pictures and the lighting and trees were amazing for them.  I always do posed and life style pictures for almost all of my sessions.  With families I love to say silly things like “make a mommy and daddy sandwich!” or “fuzzy pickles” to get some real genuine laughs and smiles.  It is also fun to just let the littles be little and run around and capture them as they play with each other.

Being a parent myself, I rarely find myself in front of the lens, generally I am on the other side snapping away, even for my own family.  So when I have a family session, I encourage mom and dad to get together for a few pictures without the kids.  Sometimes the children will be running around in the background and I love to capture that as well during a loving embrace.  The best part is that mom and dad are both always really happy to have not just updated pictures of the whole family, but a recent picture of  just the two of them too.

Sometimes I go off to the side and tell them to tell each other jokes for funny stories, I always love the expressions captured for those pictures and the kids always love to do this.   Best Family Photographer in New Jerseypin it

Fall Family Farm Mini Sessions NJ

I just adore fall family pictures here in NJ!  The fall is the best time to capture the beauty of our area with all the oranges, yellows and reds.  Fall is always a huge time of family festivities too.  Can we say camp fire and s’mores??  One of my Favorite things to do is pumpkin picking at a local pumpkin farm with the kids.  There is a huge maze there and if you look hard enough, you will see a hippo in the farm pond!  You can also peruse the farm area and visit with their chickens. We always take a hay ride up to the patch and pick the best pumpkins. This is the place we always go to if you want to check it out: West Portal Pumpkin Patch 

This year I am offering fall family farm mini sessions on my sisters private farm in NJ.  We are booking now and spots are limited.  I only offer mini sessions once a year, so if you have been waiting for these, now is the time to grab a spot.

The dates for fall farm minis are Sunday October 15 or Sunday October 22.

These mini sessions will run 25 minutes each and include the following:

• A mix of classic posed shots + interactive, natural family or kiddo shots – as much as we can muster in 25 minutes!

All sessions will require a non-refundable full payment to hold your spot as these are limited times. Sessions will be considered booked upon receipt of this payment. Don’t miss out on this one time seasonal event!!

Time slots will be chosen as we get closer to the date, they are being held outside so I have to time it right with the sunset but they will most likely start at 3:30 or 4 and run on a 30 minute interval to allow time for families to arrive and also gather up and leave.

Within a week of your session, we will meet up for you to choose your images from your session.

Frenchtown NJ Maternity Photoshoot

Living in Frenchtown NJ definitely has its perks especially for photo shoots.  When this momma contacted me to photograph her maternity pictures, I knew we needed to photograph them at a local creek.  One of the perks of having me photograph your maternity session is the client wardrobe closet.  I have multiple dresses that I allow my maternity clients to use during their maternity session.

Once you book your maternity photo session with me, we discuss locations to photograph at throughout Hunterdon County, NJ.  I love living here and showing off the true beauty of our garden state as a backdrop to your photo session.  Once we choose a New Jersey locations for your pictures, I have you come to my studio and pick out your wardrobe from my client closet.  We discuss what you and your spouse will wear along with older children.  I love helping my clients pick out their wardrobe for their photo session.  I always incorporate regular clothing from your closet along with the maternity gowns from the client closet.

Maternity photo sessions are one of my favorite kinds of sessions.  I love to incorporate posed along with unposed images.  I really try to enhance all those special moments of your growing belly and family.  I say it a lot, but as a mom to three littles, time flies by with them.  I love to look back on my maternity pictures that I had done during my third pregnancy and really regret not having those done for my other two pregnancies.  It brings back so many memories of those first baby flutters that you feel when you aren’t sure if its a kick or something else.  Even towards the end of pregnancy when you get super uncomfortable and impatient, maternity pictures help you remember how exciting life was while you were waiting at that time.  Babies bring so much amazingness to our lives and it really starts from the moment we find out we are pregnant.

This momma was so radiant at her photo shoot.  She really blew her maternity picture session in Frenchtown, NJ away.  Not only did she just look amazingly radiant, but she and her family were so much fun to work with.  It was definitely hard for her to narrow down her top choices at her ordering session but she picked some of the most gorgeous pictures from her Maternity Shoot.

Take a look at this sweet family’s Fresh 48 session here from last month.  Sweet baby Payton was born and she is adorable!

I am now booking Maternity  Due Dates for October, November and December.  Contact me to schedule your photo shoot.  (908)752-1622

Morristown NJ Fresh 48 Newborn Baby Session

When Kim contacted me to do her maternity pictures and we talked about what her vision was for them, I was so excited.  They were also lucky enough to book a maternity session with me during a special sale for Mother’s day in May and they also received a complementary Fresh 48 Session.  I was also equally excited when she told me they would be having there new baby in Morristown at the Morristown Hospital in NJ.  Most of my Fresh 48 sessions are photographed at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington NJ so it is always fun to go to a new place and experience it.

My knowledge of Morristown, NJ is not huge.  It is nestled amongst some gorgeous little towns like Bernardsville, Far Hills, Mendham, Parsippany and a few others in Morris County NJ.  Morris County is located right in the middle of Sussex and Somerset.  My goal for this year is to explore more of Morristown.  It really looks like such an adorable area and its definitely not that far from my studio.  I bet the fall foliage along 287 is gorgeous so I will definitely be taking my family there in the fall.

I have to say I was highly impressed with Morristown Hospital.  It is huge and overwhelming yes, but the staff was very friendly and willing to help me find my way.  The maternity ward has signs up to encourage visitors to be quiet as new families are welcoming their newborn babies and getting to know each other. The waiting area for mommas and daddies to welcome their newborn baby is equipped with toys for those who have other children and is located right near the nursery.

This Fresh 48 hospital session was just precious.  Big brother Tyler arrived to Morristown Medical Center shortly after I did, so I captured some great sibling moments also.

I could not help but notice how protective Tyler already is of his little baby sister.  He wanted to be right there with me while I photographed her.  He was so cute and even shared his fire truck with his baby sister too.

My favorite thing to capture are these amazing raw moments families have as they grown and learn about becoming bigger family together.  It is almost like you can see everyones heart burst from emotion these first few days.

Payton is adorable.  She came a few days before her actual due date and pretty quickly too from her momma and daddy’s birth story.  She is one of the most precious little newborns ever.  She barely made a peep while I was there.  I mean look at all these wrinkles on her feet!  And those baby toes are just perfection!

Right as I was finishing up, big brother wanted to sit on his mommas lap.  As the three were sitting there together, I couldn’t stop but thinking about how I remembered this moment after my second was born.  It was like the perfect moment in time and I wish I had a picture to treasure it like Kim does.  Its that moment you wonder how we ever lived without these sweet babies in our lives and how much we love them from the moment we learn about our pregnancies.

Newborn Baby Hospital Pictures

Newborn baby hospital pictures are the greatest way to start my day!  I love capturing all of Hunterdon Medical Centers newborn babies in Flemington, NJ.  I am always left so excited when I get the heads up that a baby is about to be born.  Living in Frenchtown, NJ the hospital is a quick trip through part of Hunterdon County to Flemington.  I am at the hospital so frequently for Fresh 48 sessions that the staff is always welcoming and very inviting when I walk into the doors.

I had the opportunity to photograph this family’s maternity pictures as well.  We had a super hot day for those images but we were able to capture some amazing images.

Baby Owen was born just a few days prior to his due date surprising his momma and daddy.  He weighed 8lbs and 15 oz and measured 22 1/4″ long.  Needless to say when I met him, he was so adorable!  For a newborn baby he was so alert and had lots to take in while I was there.  I love when babies are little chunkikins, they are so super squishy.  I also love when I first meet these newborn babies because so much is happening and there is always a rawness to all this newborn newness.

Being behind the camera for me is an amazing experience.  I get to hone in all all these special moments that seem pretty normal in our lives on a day to day experience.  I capture and freeze these fleeting moments for families all throughout New Jersey.  These are the moments that my families from the fresh 48 sessions will cherish for years to come.

I love capturing all their wrinkly skin those first few days before they start to fill out.  Their tiny toes, wrinkly foreheads and the constant search for food like a baby bird.  Everything is such a blur when a baby is born.  This new relationship is coming to fruition and mom and baby are trying to get the nursing down along with all the other new  baby cues.  My heart just melts when I see these images of Owen grabbing his daddy’s finger and holding it tight.  Do you remember when your baby was born and how strong their grasp around your finger was? It is so amazing the strength these newborn babies have in their hands!

I had baby Owen’s daddy swaddle him while I was there.  I swear the nurses in the maternity ward at HMC must take an extensive course on swaddling because they are always baby burrito-ing those newborns up.  I am not the best at swaddling but I would say Owen’s daddy is definitely tackling that task!
