Owen’s Newborn Images

These are my Owen’s newborn images.  I am having a rather nostalgic moment.  My third bubs is about to be 1.  ONE!  I keep asking how in the heck did a year come and go already?  It is almost like this year flew by my nose.  I knew when I was pregnant with him last year that I was going to do Owen’s newborn images.  I was so happy that I was able to do them.  I captured every single essence of his newborn squishy phase that I wanted.  He was so big and fat, weighing in at a whopping 11 lbs and 2 oz.  Not only was he fat, but he was a huge snuggler.  I swear he ate all the time too…but he was a newborn and we forget so quickly how much they eat in those early days.  Luckily I had some help with my nursling.  We had some issues at first.  It was painful.  Im not going to lie, the first week of him nursing was like super painful.  We had a lot to work out.  Owen and I were establishing a relationship.  We literally just met earth side and here I am thinking that nursing will be a breeze.  It isn’t, it is hard.  Nursing is hard and sometimes frustrating and painful.  This is where good help and advice comes in handy.  If you are nursing your newborn and you are having issues, please contact your local lactation consultant.  They will help you and advise you to do things that will increase your likely hood to nurse your baby with success.  If you  are in NJ contact your local la leche league or you can also use Keystone Lactation Services.  They helped my sister in law out tremendously.  Please don’t be afraid to ask for help, sometimes in order to make it a successful nursing journey you need a second set of eyes.  As new moms we are constantly worried about so many things and help is amazing for us.  I always say those first few weeks are the toughest with a new baby, there is always so much going on.  You can make it through them!  I promise.  And once you do and look back you will be like me….wondering where in the world did the months go!?

I must give a shout out to my amazing vendors.  Newborn reindeer bonnet is from: Oh so fleeting!

    These are adorable! I especially love the hands & feet pose. As the years go by (too quickly), parents forget the sweet moments that melted our hearts. You’ve captured it perfectly!ReplyCancel

Janelle’s family session

I love to photograph families and their extended families.  Family goes beyond right?..we have mom, dad, brother, sister etc. What about the grand parents?  They like to be in pictures too.  Not only that but, its nice to have them in our family images as well.  Everyone loves to look back through the images and see that their grand parents were able to partake in a session.  I loved that about Janelle’s family session.  Actually, there were several things that I loved about their family session but I promise Ill get to those later.

She had her mom’s parents come to the session, along with her mom and brother. We had so much fun photographing them at the National Seashore in Ocean Springs MS.  We braved the hot humid weather and met up to have their session.  Her son and daughter did amazing!  I even snapped a few images of the grand babies with their grandma and the great grands.  Those images will be special for many many years.

Parents sometimes get frustrated with their own children during their sessions.  Photographers are looking through a viewfinder at a different world.  We see eye contact, facial gestures, the flow of the breeze through hair.  Not all images need to have a “cheesing” child in them.  Sometimes it is the serious expressions that tell us a thousand tales.  Yes, a smile is nice.  No, kids do not always want to smile.  Yes, this is totally ok.  Photographers just roll with it.  We are capturing moments for our clients.  Trust us, we are artists. 😉

Janelle’s photo shoot was really awesome.  Like myself, she believes in extended breastfeeding, so of course we took some gorgeous images of her and her sweet daughter nursing.  There is no time like those moments when you are nursing your little one.  They are only so little for such a short period of time.  Sometimes it is extremely hard to embrace the parenting realities when our children are so small.  They need us so much.  We are their first everything.  We become so much to them, their mother, father, nurse, refferee, pacifier, teacher, friend, helper, caregiver, and the list continues.  It is exhausting.  Before I ever considered having children, someone once told me, “Parenting, it is the hardest job you will ever love.” My gosh they were so right.

If you are interested in more information regarding breastfeeding, your local La Leche League is always a great place to start.  For information on extended breast feeding, LLL is a great resource along with this page.   If you live in New Jersey, here is a list of LLL groups within the state.  And if you live in Pennsylvania, here are the LLL groups.

The Laux family wanted to have their family pictures done at the Memorial Rose Gardens in Allentown, PA.  If you have never been to The Rose Gardens, you need to go, stat.  They are gorgeous.  They have pavilions for picnicking, a trail to walk along, a creek to play in and of course the rose and flower gardens.  They are gorgeous.  It is a majestic place to have pictures taken.  The rose gardens are set up with trellises and then off to the side they have a flower garden that has tons of petunias and really interesting gardens to meander around in.  You can walk around and let the kids run around and cross over the creek.  When you are done at the gardens, you can take the family over to the amazing park, Cedar Beach Children’s Playground, right down the road from the Memorial Rose Gardens or you can visit my Alma Mater, Cedar Crest College.  With it being a city, Allentown has a lot to offer if you are driving in to have your pictures done.

As you can see from the images below, we had a great time and captured some really beautiful moments.  I love this family, actually, we are family in a way, and that just made this photo shoot all the more special.  Sometimes when I am really close with my clients, I let my hubs and kids tag along.  The Rose Gardens were perfect for them to tag along as Hugo, my hubs, is a Rosarian.  While I photographed Hugo took my 3 Rose Buds and explored.  It was actually perfect because we did their photos and then all the kids were able to run around and explore for a bit afterwards.  Once they finished exploring, we went over to the cedar beach park and played for quite a while.  It was the perfect end to a fabulous family photoshoot.

Laughlin Family Session

The Laughlin family session was so much fun.  Even though it was super hot, we still had a great time and got some wonderful images.

Early in the summer, my family moved from the Gulf Coast of Mississippi to the East Coast of New Jersey.  Throughout my journey, I was blessed enough to stop and visit friends.  Teal and I have known each other for over 30 years….weird right?!?!  I was excited to stop and have the opportunity to visit with her and her family in Greensboro.  Of course I couldn’t resist the opportunity to have session with them!  So we trekked off to the local Botanical Garden on what felt like the hottest day ever.  It was so worth it tho.  I captured some amazing moments between the Laughlin Family.

One of the things I love most about photographing families is snapping my shutter during those real life moments.  A sweet kiss being exchanged, an embrace, movement and even silly faces.  Actually, when I’m shooting during my sessions, I always have my families make a silly face.  It tends to lighten the mood and get rid of nervousness for those who do not really care to be photographed.  There are also a few other tricks I like to bring out to get emotive/emotional images for my galleries.   To schedule your family session contact me!  I also love to help out with wardrobe styling and picking out the perfect place to capture your family.

Kristins Maternity Photos

Kristin’s maternity photos are amazing. In studio maternity sessions are so much fun!  When I found out Kristin was expecting her second baby, I knew I wanted to capture these moments for her.  Right before I moved from the Gulf Coast to Milford, NJ, I reached out to her and she came to the studio.  It was exciting and a great session.  I even had my daughter there to help with the gown tossing.  Amelia tends to help me out and she really loves to do so.  She is a great gown tosser and she always seems very interested in pregnancy; maybe she will be an OBGYN or a Midwife when she is older.

I was so excited when Kristin came over to have images taken of her baby bump.  I first met Kristin when we were both pregnant with our sons back in 2013.  She had just moved to the area and I was expecting my second baby and we hit it off right away.  Our sons were born exactly 2 months apart to the day.  For the longest time, when they were little they even kind of resembled each other.  It was really cute.

I loved being able to capture these moments for her.  Crazy to think that our sons are both 3!  Time really flies.  She looks amazingly gorgeous pregnant!  Kristin maternity photos show just how much of a variety we can get in studio. And I absolutely adore my maternity gowns from Chelsea Celeste Gowns.  I love how dramatic the black and white images look.  She had her baby, a boy, they named him Samson and he is adorable and fully of squish!!
