Pop Up Minis with BIG Personality! | Morristown NJ Photographer

Guys! I am so excited to share these new mini sessions with you! I am calling them my “Pop Up Minis with BIG Personality”. The sessions take place in my garage and are just meant to capture your child exactly as they are right now. I have been realizing how much my daughter has changed in just the last few months. The small little details that I blinked and could have missed. Like how she has two big grown up teeth replacing her two tiny little baby teeth on the bottom….or her new favorite thing to do when she takes a picture (putting up the peace sign), or the way she gives me her serious face but can only hold it for a few seconds before laughing. So I am making it a point to capture her like I did in the images below every couple of months….simply as she is now. If you want to do the same for your child than contact me so we can get it set up!

Beautiful Extended Family | Morristown NJ Photographer

Extended family sessions are a special gift to that special family member. Whether it be Christmas, a birthday or Mothers/Fathers day, giving a person this rather than another candle or set of wine glasses is something they will cherish for years.

Having their whole family together in the frame is something most moms and grandparents hope for but usually have trouble achieving. Yes these sessions are crazy and busy but usually end in fun when they realize they will finally have that group picture they have always wanted. I think what most people need to realize is they just need to let go of their perfect and embrace the chaos and just enjoy their time with their family. That is what I really enjoy about these sessions, that it’s a chance to all get together in a pretty location and I am there to capture it as it unfolds.

As well as the typical group shot, I also try to capture each individual family group, each child and other set ups such as all the kids, the Grandparents with the kids or any other combos we have the time for.

It’s the perfect gift or just a great excuse to capture your family together :)



Mom and Me Downtown Session | Morristown NJ Photographer

Sometimes the days feel so so long when you are a mom. The piles of laundry that never seem to end no matter how many loads you do and the toys that some how have taken over every room in the house. But being a mom….

Christmastime 2018 | Morristown NJ Photographer

One of my many goals that I wrote down for 2019 is to blog more. I had that as a goal last year as well and I don’t know if it was just me or if this seemed to have happened to a lot of people this year but I feel like I blinked and it was 2019.

ey Friends!

So without further ado here are 5 reasons to have those photos taken.
