I met Hayley and Charlotte’s mom Gina through a good friend, and was so excited to learn about her new venture, Fun On The Run Bags based out of Hoboken. Gina rents out travel bags for kids that are stuffed with fun toys and games, which is such a great idea. We are always traveling with our boys and end up spending so much money on new toys, cards and games for every trip in a desperate attempt to keep them occupied for 6+ hour flights and car rides. Anyway, fast forward and here I am taking Gina’s girls’ portraits.
Gina wanted to have the girls in their play clothes having fun so that we could capture their personalities in the way she enjoys them every day. And they are so sweet! Hayley (turning 5 in a few weeks) reminded me of Hollywood glamour with her striking brown eyes and cheek bones, and Charlotte (2.5 years) has these huge blue eyes that are just amazing! To add some pops of color I had some flowers and paper lanterns on hand which they loved playing with. Such a fun shoot!
Evelyn (5) and Olivia’s (3) session this week was all about being girly, which (because of the fact that I am surrounded by nothing but boys in my house all day, every day) was so ridiculously fun for me to shoot. It was also the perfect opportunity to break out my deep red backdrop which looked so amazing with the girls in their adorable dresses and hair bows. I made their initials out of printed floral patterns and even broke out a fan to put a little wind in their hair. Ahh, so much girly fun. Love it!
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!
Looking forward to seeing Sarah and that adorable Jamie more around the neighborhood!
