Hi!  Thanks for visiting my blog, where I post about recent photography shoots, my travels, and things I feel might be interesting to you!  Comments are appreciated!  Happy reading!


Year after year, I am honored that the Cooper Family asks me to document their growing family, from their engagement, wedding, first newborn, and now their baby boy (and all the sweet moments in between)! Baby Harrison snoozed through most of our time together, but even when he was awake, he was an absolute angel. […]

Adorable little Delilah turned 5 recently and I was asked to photograph her superhero birthday party at Powerhouse Studios! It’s amazing how time flies by so quickly; it feels like just yesterday that I was photographing sweet Delilah as a newborn baby! Powerhouse Studios is an awesome location in New Jersey, perfect for parties of […]

The Cooper Family! I just LOVE photographing this family year after year, even since before Delilah was born! We met for fall photos in Weehawken on a gorgeous autumn day… and to photograph a special family announcement! The great thing about Weehawken is its waterfront and amazing view of Manhattan! We wandered over to the […]

It was so exciting to photograph the Perkins Family again, this time at their new home in Montclair! We were neighbors for several years in NYC, living on the same floor of our apartment building. I’ve loved watching Miles and Grant grow up, and was sad when they moved. But I’m so happy for them; […]

This was the first time I’ve seen Beau since I photographed him as a newborn baby last spring! He was such a beautiful baby, and has only gotten more handsome since then 🙂 And of course his mom, Heather, had him dressed in the most adorable outfit! I photographed Dion and Heather’s amaaazing wedding in […]

Baby Beau is a total sweetheart! I’m so happy for the Cooper Family; it’s been a wonderful journey, photographing their engagement, wedding, maternity, and his first day at the hospital. A week old, Beau is already growing more handsome by the day! Heather and Dion have picked up parenthood quite naturally; they’re cherishing every moment […]

It seems like just yesterday that I was visiting the Lynch Family to photograph their first born son, Wyatt! They recently introduced sweet little Landon to the world, and I was thrilled to be invited to photograph their newly expanded family! How adorable is this little peanut?! How does Jenni always look incredible and well-rested, […]

These days go by SO quickly! I remember photographing Delilah’s newborn portraits so vividly (she was so beautiful then – and has only gotten more gorgeous in the last few years!). I loved photographing Delilah and her parents at the playground behind their house on a perfect, crisp autumn day! Candace was trying SO hard […]

I absolutely LOVE when clients are referred to me by close friends or family! I was thrilled when Baby Orin’s mom contacted me about photographing his newborn portraits, because her sister-in-law recommended me! (I loved photographing sweet little Ivy a few years ago!) Little Orin is absolutely adorable!!! So peaceful and content, very much like […]

This year I once again offered a select number of mini photo sessions at a Christmas tree farm in New Jersey!  I always love these sessions, despite the freezing cold temperatures and limited time to spend with each family.  We had a successful afternoon and I want to make sure to thank my wonderful friend and […]
