Priceless Moments ~ North NJ Portrait Photographer, Breastfeeding Session

Recently, I had the honor of joining Jena while she nursed her third and final baby to document this incredible journey that she has been on.   She contacted me, simply stating that she wanted to capture this time; immortalizing these quiet stolen moments of bonding and nurturing.

As I settled in with my camera to snap this sweet baby boy and his mama, she began to share with me her experiences with nursing her three boys.  It’s so amazing how each baby and each experience is so unique and sacred and it was such a blessing to be able to share in this particular story.

Jena is also a talented writer and has shared her experience on her blog.  To read about her nursing journey and how this session came to fruition, please visit her at:

Sibling Love ~ Northern NJ Portrait Photographer, Family Sessions

You may recall a post from a few weeks ago, regarding a mini session?  Unfortunately, there wasn’t much interest, so it didn’t quite happen.  A silver lining to that fact?  This sweet brother and sister!!!    Originally, they were booked for a mini session slot, but big sister wasn’t really a fan of the theme and since they were the only booking…the theme got tossed.   Instead, I had the pleasure of capturing these two in a pure and natural light.

I can tell that they are going to be BEST friends in life.  They are super lucky to have each other. There is nothing better than a sibling.  :)

A New Royal~ Northern NJ Portrait Photographer, Newborn session

My best friend welcomed her second child, her first son, into the world in early June.  This woman is an ultimate childbirth warrior.  Her first baby weighed in at a whopping 9lbs, 7oz.  This “little” guy weighed in at a staggering 9lbs, 10oz.  She is truly my hero.

She lives in my home state and I was fortunate enough to be able to make a trip home 3 weeks after her sweet boy was born and get some newborn photos.  I had forgotten how teeny even a big baby is and he was far too interested in what I was doing to sleep the whole time.  He certainly is going to be a heartbreaker.

The Ayala Files~ Northern NJ Portrait Photographer, Family Session

I have been SO excited to share these photos!  A few weeks ago, a new friend of mine asked me about doing some new family photos for her.  I jumped at the chance!   I know her and her two (zomg, ADORABLE) boys from my local babywearing group and they are just fantastic so I was super excited to meet the rest of the family!

It was a bright and beautiful day and we kicked off the session with a little playground fun while the little ones warmed up to the camera.  Needless to say…their shy streak didn’t last long!
