Normally a Rochester area family photographer, it’s so exciting when I get to ‘come home’ to New Jersey and photograph in fresh (yet very familiar!) settings. The park this sweet family was photographed in was actually my neighborhood playground! I love that I was able to photograph my friend’s sweet girls where I used to play as a kiddo. I’m fairly certain I was never dressed as preciously as this duo was, though! It’s no secret this precious family is one of my favorites to photograph. Without getting too mushy (you know I’m notorious!)- I’ll just say they’re the real deal: fun, genuine, kind and loving. A wonderful little family <3
After their family session, mom requested a special first birthday session for Katherine. She is seriously SUCH a doll! Happy and smiley during both sessions. She never fussed once. What a beautiful little sweetheart! She’s a keeper for sure! ;)
If you are looking for a New Jersey family session or a lifestyle newborn session, I may be able to accommodate you! I make several trips down to North Jersey throughout the year and would LOVE to help tell your story!

I know it’s entirely too cliché to say that I love my job. But there’s no simpler way to put it: I LOVE it. I love capturing families grow in size, whether welcoming first babies or fourth babies. I am immeasurably humbled when a family allows me the beautiful honor of continuing to capture their story. Watching kiddos that I’ve truly come to care about grow up in front of my lens is so thrillingly meaningful to me. Several months ago I began offering in-home lifestyle sessions, and they are rapidly becoming some of my favorite. While I, of course, love a good portrait session at a whimsical location, there is something so personal, intimate and cozy achieved when I am able to document a family in their home. I also love that as the years go by children will be able to see images of themselves in the place they love most. I know they will be simply treasured.
This precious newborn session is of sweet baby Blaire. Her mama and I went through our first pregnancies together and our sons were born within a month of each other. Wyatt has always been a cutie, but watching his pride as he held his baby sister completely melted me! I have been holding off on sharing this sweetness until the Seabury family could send out their (adorable!) Christmas card but I think it’s now officially safe to share! ;) From capturing Blaire in her beautiful nursery, to the surprise appearance from a Ford Model T, your session was so charmingly unique, and I was honored to have captured it. So much love to your beautiful family!!
