Kaitlyn & Sofia at 3-months

I have to admit I’m a little spoiled having such adorable nieces to photograph and I couldn’t wait to shoot their 3-month portraits.  It was amazing to see my brother and sister-in-law manage the continuous feeding and changing of the girls and everything that entails having twins. I’m in awe of and have so much respect for parents of multiples!!  You rock!

Kaitlyn & Sofia weren’t exactly in the mood for a photo shoot, so we all tread carefully for hours trying this and that until about 7pm at which point, for whatever reason, they decided to be all smiles.  My sister-in-law got these adorable ruffled bottoms and headbands from Etsy and these gorgeous pleated dresses for the girls that made me feel like we were playing dress-up with dolls. The girls are just beginning to hold their wobbly little heads up.  How adorable are they??

Happy 3-month birthday girls!  Love your Auntie!! xo

Stella & Juliana at 7-months

When twin girls Stella and Juliana arrived last October, I was beyond excited for mom Kristy and dad Dave.  If anyone should procreate, it’s those two. Dave is honestly one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and Kristy is one of my favorite people of all time.  She’s hilarious and doesn’t take herself too seriously – one of those friends who can say “honestly what the h*ll are you wearing??” and for whatever reason it makes you love her more. Check out her inspiring birth story which was featured on Hoboken Mommies last month.

All I could think about leading up to the shoot is how adorable Stella and Juliana would be with pearls and no clothes on and they did not disappoint! Kristy showed up with these amazing frilly tutus that just made the whole look perfection.  Juliana would always flash her huge innocent eyes at me while Stella would give me the perfect smirk.  And at 7-months they both have these delicious baby rolls that you just want to squeeze non-stop. Can’t wait for Part 2 of the girls’ shoot at the shore next month!

Michael at 2-months old

Do you ever get that feeling, after you’ve had a rough day with your baby, and a mom with 3+ kids walks by and has it all together? You know what I mean, like you should just keep your mouth shut about how hard you’ve had it.  Well it was no different seeing mom Angela in action with 2-month old baby Michael.  She came by for baby portraits in between dropping off her oldest daughter at school and her second daughter at ballet class, all while orchestrating nap and feeding times for the baby.  She also runs the Resurrection playgroup in Jersey City, which starts up again in the Fall. (Okay, I’m sure I won’t shut up any time soon about my Luke being an early waker, but still, at least I’ve been adequately shamed.)

Michael is just the sweetest cute little baby and just laid contently while I took his pictures. The only thing he was adamant about was not wanting to be in any sort of basket. The baby knows what he wants! Instead we had fun with cozy blankets, wooden letter blocks and this sweet knit hat from Smith & Chang. So adorable!

With sister Maddie. So sweet!
