Mommy and me and me | Photoshoot with my kids | NJ Family Photography

I had the pleasure of having some photos taken by my AMAZING assistant Gina Del Russo!!! Being a mom and having a business can make life extra hectic!! So a planned photoshoot is almost impossible! Once I realized I had some free time I seized the moment!! AKA threw this task on Gina last minute LOL- which she was very willing & excited about (hence why she’s the best!) I picked up my son from school with Anna, we walked home, got changed quickly (you could imagine how that went) and headed to Veterans Park which is right near my house. We met Gina there and all walked towards the playground. My baby girl Anna absolutely loves the swings & she was sooo happy that we were there! After some fun on the playground we headed to the fountain. On our way there we stopped at this awesome rusty bridge where Gina captured some more totally cute shots of us. When we got to the fountain the sun was setting so beautifully over the trees. I don’t know how Gina did it, the kids were moving around like crazy and I was throwing a lot of information at her haha but she did an incredible job! I even had her take a few of me alone to update my headshot and she was cracking up about how I “knew all the poses” LOL. After telling people how to pose so many times I guess it just comes naturally :P

I am absolutely in love with these photos Gina captured of us!! They tell so much of who I am when I’m with my kids- and who we are together! Benjamin is the sweetest boy and a bundle of energy all the time! He has been wiggly since the very first time I saw him on an 8 week ultrasound! The tech said they don’t usually even move around at that point yet LOL. Anna is so sweet and spunky! Her little personality is really staring to shine through and she has us all laughing at the cute things she says and does. I thank God for these two precious gifts every day and am so blessed to be their momma. I added some blooper photos at the end as well because I want to convey that the reality of having these photos done was not easy the entire time! We had some challenging moments on top of all the fun we had, but that’s what makes life LIFE. 

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do :)

I love newborn sessions of all kinds but it’s always extra special for me when it’s for repeat clients. I LOVE seeing a family grow and getting to capture them at different stages in life. I really just can’t believe how quickly children grow!! It was so sweet to see this family of 5 become a family of six with the addition of their newest baby boy. The kids were so excited to take photos with their baby brother and it could not have been cuter. Enjoy the photos!

 

6 Month Old Session | Little Silver NJ

I can’t believe how quickly this Summer is flying by! As you may have noticed by now I’m pretty much obsessed with this Farm and it was the perfect spot for baby Ashleigh’s 6-month old session. We got some adorable family photos and solo shots of baby Ashleigh showing off some of her new skills (aka sitting up on her own!) This baby girl is so sweet and has the brightest smile! I have loved watching her grow this year and I can’t wait to photograph her one year session, which will be here before I know it!

 

Spring Lake NJ Family Session

Time is flying! I can't believe it has been almost one year since I took these photos for Jamie and Dough with their sweet baby girl Henley Grace! Jamie and I met through another photographer friend of mine and we were both expecting baby girls about two weeks apart from each other! When Jamie's baby girl was just a little over a month we did an outdoor newborn session for them at Divine Park in Spring Lake. I had such a great time with this sweet family! After some beautiful photos in the park we rode over to the beach for some more on the boardwalk. We also had quite the adventure when I lost the keys to my car and we all had to search with our phone flashlights in the dark. Turns out the key was in my trunk! I was still getting used to the whole "push to start" thing...and I think I'll just blame it on Mommy brain ;) 

Enjoy the photos!
