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!

How amazing are these sunflowers that I purchased at the Morristown farmers market?! I couldn't wait to get home & photograph them. Something as simple as a few beautiful blooms can definitely bring your photos to another level. It's the little details that can bring life to a photo. So when booking a session let me know the things you love so we can try to work them into your session....it can be as simple as one beautiful sunflower :)

5 reasons you need a Family Session! | Morristown NJ Photographer

ey Friends!

I wanted to share with you 5 reasons you should have a family session. Until having a family of my own I don't think I understood the true meaning behind getting family photos done. I cherish the professional photos we have and plan to make it part of our family tradition to have more done. I am realizing how crucial it is for me to be in these photos with my family and how important it is for my daughter to have both me and my husband in photos with her to look back on. So without further ado here are 5 reasons to have those photos taken.  

1.  Having amazing photos of you and your loved ones!

Making Childhood Memories | Morristown NJ Photographer

We had a blast this 4th of July!

We enjoyed the day at our neighbor's awesome BBQ and we ended the night all kicked back on the curb in front of their house as our husbands set off the newly legalized fireworks! Who knew that when I walked into Target the day before the 4th I would see packages of fireworks!

The "I Love You" Phase | Morristown NJ Photographer

So Jade is in this phase where she tells us I Love You...literally every few seconds. Not that I am complaining at all but it's funny to hear her say it so often, and at the most random of moments. Running out the front door late for somewhere, "Mommy?...yes Jade...I love you"....Sitting on the potty, "Mommy I have to tell you something?...yes Jade...I love you"...Pulling something out of the frig, "Mommy?...yes Jade...I love you so so so much!".

And everyday that she does it I say to myself why is it almost Christmas already and why is there still so much to do?!
