Here’s a sneak preview of a family session I shot last Sunday in New Jersey! Hello, handsome! Hunter, who is almost one, was in a fantastic mood for our session, even though my presence was definitely mixing up his routine- a bottle BEFORE a fruit snack? Standing in the crib when it’s not naptime OR bedtime? Big portrait lights magically appearing in the living room while he was getting a diaper change? A bath in the middle of the day- what? what? what? And yet, he’s such a happy baby; he took it all in stride. Now I’ve got to get back to editing the rest of our shoot. Thank you, cuteness.

Today I got to shoot Heather and Dan’s Christmas-y wedding at the Round Hill House in Washingtonville! This was the first wedding I’ve ever been to where lots of my old high school besties and Joel’s and my contemporary New York friends combined for one awesome party. Their wedding announcement actually made the New York Times, which was so exciting, and yes, that IS a picture of the bride running around a gas station parking lot in her veil and hiking boots. Have a wonderful honeymoon in Argentia, you guys! Congratulations!

Earlier this summer, I had the BEST mother-baby session with little Sophie and her mom Frederique. Sophie was a little slow to warm up, reserving her best smiles for a little while, but oh, once she got going? The smiles were pure sunshine.

I have to say, in a couple of years when Joel and I are ready to start a family, I hope I find a new mom’s group as cool as Teran and Freddy’s.) These ladies have been so great, and I’ve been having so much fun with the bebes. I’m so appreciative of the way they’ve been passing my name onto friends and family, including Freddy’s sister-in-law Eleanor.

Joel and I went down to Sea Girt for our anniversary weekend earlier this month, and we shot the session on the beach, a nearby park and around Spring Lake, NJ. Thanks so much for letting me photograph your kids, you guys! I’d love to see you all again. (And oh, I will have more stickers for bribes. Oh, yes. 😉

On Sunday, I shot Emily and Jeremy’s beautiful wedding in upstate New York. For those of you keeping score, yes, that’s THREE weddings in one week. Emily and Jeremy celebrated in their own unique way, with a ceremony they wrote themselves and a wedding party who got to choose their own dresses. The highlight for me, however, had to be when the best man toast gave way to a water gun ambush. The brother of the groom gave the happy couple a gift during the toast. When they opened it they found two water guns and a note that said, “Defend yourselves.” Awesome!
