Jamie 15-month Portraits

I had so much fun shooting Jamie for his 15-month portraits – and how could I not? He has these massive blue eyes, a glorious head full of curls, and a huge smile that he’s not shy about showing off.  Jamie is about the same age as my youngest, so I had a good idea what I was in for…a lot of crawling and wiggles! But it turns out, all he needed was some interesting reading material and we were good to go. 🙂

Jamie’s mom Sarah is also one of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. If you are involved with the JC Moms, you may have seen her hosting a Meetup playdate or two.
For this shot, I used a removable wall decal for the background and basic arts and crafts letters.

 

Storytime with Jamie.  Chaucer and Mark Twain anyone?

 

Who can resist this smile?

 

A stroll through Hamilton Park…

 

…where the trees are in full bloom!

 

The eyes!

 

Looking forward to seeing Sarah and that adorable Jamie more around the neighborhood!

Jersey City T-Ball is Here!

The Roberto Clemente T-Ball season is in full swing in Jersey City!  Saturday was the first game day of the season and seeing 5 and 6 year olds in full baseball gear could not have been any cuter…except seeing how serious they all are playing. The greatest part of watching t-ball at this age is seeing all the kids descend upon the ball at the same time trying to get their hands on it. It turns into like one of those big dust clouds you see in cartoons when Wiley coyote is getting into it with the Road Runner.  Here are some pics of the game between the ‘Tigers’ and ‘Yankees’ at Jones Park. Adorable!

 

Maya & Liv’s Portrait Session

I had so much fun with Maya and Liv’s portrait session! Their family recently moved from London to Jersey City and amidst the hustle and bustle of getting settled with schools, new friends, and searching for their dream apartment, made it to our studio to capture their girls at this moment, ages 1 and 4 respectively.  Maya was so adorable and like a true 1 year-old wanted wanted to play with all the fun toys around. Besides playing peek-a-boo with her beloved blankie, her favorite play thing was a yellow marker, which naturally ended up in her mouth and all over her cheek. Love it. 🙂 I got some amazing smiles from that sweet girl and her big sister too.
