These two amazing people work at my son’s school. I absolutely adore them both as does he. When they announced their engagement awhile back, we were all so very excited for them. They are the sweetest and most genuine couple and I couldn’t be more honored that they asked me to capture their joy in their engagement photos.
Last time we left off with our radiant mother to be, she was anxiously awaiting her baby girl. In true family fashion, she followed in her sister’s footsteps and gave birth not very long after our session. It’s been a little while coming, so I won’t keep you waiting any longer… This beautiful princess was such a joy to work with. And you can certainly see her parents’ spunky sense of humor in her face.
Recently, I photographed one of my closest friends in her journey from pregnancy to life with another newborn. Just a few short months after the birth of her second child, her sister was preparing to welcome her own bundle of joy.
Kristina and her husband, Steve, contacted me to do a traditional maternity session. We picked the brightest and windiest day of the year and set about our day taking pictures at a local park as well as the beautiful and serene nursery they have created for their sweet girl. Kristina and Steve are a super fun couple that really embrace life together and certainly don’t take themselves seriously. And, at 9 months pregnant, Kristina was showing both Steve and myself up with her limitless energy and nary a pregnancy waddle to be seen.
After a couple hours of your traditional run-of-the-mill maternity shots, Steve went to work…and Kristina got ready to show off her inner bombshell. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman with confidence, except maybe a woman with confidence bursting with new life as she prepares to give birth.
Remember our prompt little sprout from this session?
Well, here he is…in all his sweet newborn glory.
This little fella decided on his due date that it was time to come out. He was born a bit after midnight, so not quite on his due date, but close enough to make that maternity session feel like it just happened yesterd….oh. Wait… ;-P
He was about 11 days old at this session and, omg, the sweetest. I still get a little surprised when I pick up a newborn baby. I expect them to weight 25lbs, like my toddler. This little peanut clocked in near 7lbs and felt like a featherweight. He was such a joy to work with and didn’t seem to be too bothered by our constant folding and rearranging and rewrapping. Which is fortunate, because we did it… a LOT. :)
Meet my friend Kiera. She is one of the first people I got to know when I moved to NJ. She has a little boy that is my son’s age and those two are best friends as well. When she announced that she was expecting #2, I couldn’t WAIT to get pictures of her beautiful growing belly. But, as luck would have it, she was due at the end of January…which as you know is smack dab in the middle of snow season here. Every weekend that we tried to get these photos done, a blizzard or an ice storm would hit. We just couldn’t catch a break!!!
Until 39 weeks and 5 days.
Surely that wasn’t cutting it TOO close, right? Babies don’t come on their due date ever, right???
But, this one did. Luckily, we were able to do this just in the nick of time.

So, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to post a new session. I’ve been tied up with some other projects and dealing with LOTS of technical difficulties. Hopefully, we’re now on the road to productivity. ;)
This is my Sister in Law and Brother in Law. They actually welcomed their sweet boy in December, so this is obviously very late. It really broke my heart for this session to be so long in the making, since it’s my very own FAMILY but it’s done now and I’m so excited to share it with you guys!!
