Best Birthday Gift

This awesome dude asked for a BIG birthday gift this year. He was asking for a sibling, well guess what he got! He will be having a BABY BROTHER!!! This big guy gets to have a little brother joining his crew come Oct 2019! I think he is a pretty happy 5 year old!

Today’s the end of a chapter.

Well, that’s all folks. Today is the very last day for my big man. Today he will say good bye to pre-school. The next time he goes to school he will be a kindergartner. Gosh, I had no idea as you get older that the time goes quicker and quicker, and there is no way of slowing it down or even stopping it. Here are some last photos of our end of school session at his school. They show all sides of his personality . I love this big dude so much! Thank you for picking me to be your Mommy!! <3

Here comes kindergarten!

Where did the last five years go? No clue but here is my little man graduating pre school and moving on to kindergarten next year. I could not be more proud of this handsome dude. But he wouldn’t be any where he is today with out the amazing teachers at the Oxycocus School. So I am sending out a huge thank you to the teachers, speech therapists, aids, staff and every other person at the school that has cared a great amount for my son the last two years.

Best Buddies

So there are times I get to pull out my camera for my own kids, but this time I got to do it on a beautiful day at a local park. We were walking Cattus Island State Park for the first time and I just had to bring it. These two kiddos were so happy and such goof balls on the trails it was great. They even had time for a little kissy poo

Engagement Session | Barnegat Lighthouse | Family Photographer | Ocean County NJ

Just two people in love…..

Avani and Matt were the cutest couple enjoying a beautiful night at the Barnegat Lighthouse. We had the most perfect weather one could wish for after our first night got cancelled due to rain. It was a great experience, especially for me being able to be the first professional photographer to capture amazing moments of Avani! Congratulations and I hope you have the best two day wedding ever!!

Mommy & Me

There is nothing like the bond between a mother and child. Each child you have there will be a different and special type of bond, its truly amazing. I LOVE that Stacey has taken the time out and made sure she got in front of the camera with her little love. Sometimes as moms we are the ones taking the photos that we never sit back to make sure we are in them. They were such a great team it was awesome.

Baby Birthday Shark

Baby shark is by far my favorite little song. And in case anyone didn't know about the Amazon Prime Baby Shark channel, you are welcome! 14 great versions of baby shark, its great. So needless to say I have been waiting for someone to do this theme for about a year now. This handsome little stud was such a great baby shark.

Mr. Jaxin

This handsome little devil gave me a run for my money in the beginning of the session. But before you knew it, he was as sleepy as a sleepy baby should be. It was almost like he didn't want to miss anything and then realized the warmth and white noise of my studio was totally going to win! Before you knew it we were done the session and we have these awesome pictures for his Mama <3

Avery | Birthday Session | Indoor Studio | Ocean County Photographer

Where does the time go?!

I am not sure where the time goes but by golly watching this cutie grow up has been awesome! I love seeing Avery. She is pretty shy but warms up to me and the studio every time she comes. She probably wouldn’t love a very crowded, off schedule commercial studio so it is beyond perfect for her. Can’t wait for the next holiday to see her back!
