Cameron turns 2! (Mahwah,NJ/Child Photography)

I just realized that the last 5 sessions I've blogged are all boys! So funny! They do melt your heart though, don't they?

Well, here's one more sweet boy that melts my heart...Happy Birthday Cameron!!

You would never know that we were being followed by some mean ass geese..:P

Christian (Newborn Session/Mahwah, NJ)

It was such a gorgeous day out, I am so happy we took Christian's newborn session outside. Bonus to being a summer baby! The fresh air had Christian nice and sleepy, no need for the baby shusher. 

It's always fun to see the relationships between new siblings during our sessions. It's an adjustment and sometimes a shock to new siblings that this new baby is coming home with you and staying forever. Watching Emily with her little brother was so sweet to see. She couldn't wait to hold him and was so gentle with him. She's a natural! :)

N. Family (Lifestyle Photography, Mahwah, NJ)

Right before Christmas, I got an e-mail inquiring about an extended family session. It would be the first time that this family would all be together and only for a few days. One son was in from Rome, another from Texas and they had just a few days to get this done for their parents. 

I am so happy that we were able to make the time to get together and to end 2015 with a pretty awesome group of people. They just had a great energy and that you could feel the genuine love they have for one another. Aren't they just a gorgeous group?!


You Fancy...

I had this whole session planned in my head for Marco & Olivia's 5th birthday..yea that never happened! 

Instead, I picked the kids up from school and headed over to check out this beautiful garden area for our holiday cards. The older the kids get they definitely have their own ideas of what they want to do and I love it. I know the day may come when they tell me to put my camera away, so I am going to enjoy it while I can.

Summer fun (Mahwah, NJ Photographer)

I forgot all about this day and these images! Marco + Olivia played in the water for over an hour. It was a perfect summer day. Kids playing in the water, just enjoying the simple pleasures of warmer days...glorious!! 

A Little Magic + Glitter (Mahwah, NJ Photography)

I had this whole set-up in my head for Olivia and her cute "have courage and be kind" leotard. She just looked too darn cute today! After dinner we took a walk and had a little photo shoot in this field we love. Played a little music and danced around. Have you seen the new movie, Inside Out? We LOVED the short before the movie, LAVA. Song has been playing in my head all day.

I can't believe how much Marco + Olivia have grown up in the last year. I just want to freeze them at this age. Everyday that baby face seems further away but I love watching them. With Liv it's all  about princesses, fairies, glitter and magic.  I hope she never loses that magic. Hold on it to Liv...we could all use a little glitter in our lives. :)
