The Durham Family

I had the pleasure of doing a family photo shoot with Jaime, Brian and their beautiful kids over the weekend.  Honestly, you couldn’t ask for a more picture perfect family if you did a casting call. William (almost 4) and Alaina (2) were so adorable and somehow knew to be perfectly behaved when the camera was on them.

Jaime wanted the portraits to capture something quintessential to Jersey City, and Morris Canal Park was just the place.  It encapsulates some of the greatest perks of living here with the amazing views of the Manhattan skyline, a glistening Hudson River, and peeks of the Statue of Liberty.

And talk about super-mom! Jaime coordinated this family photo shoot with me in the midst of packing for a big move to Florida. Thank you for the amazing photo shoot Durham family! Wishing you all the best in your move!

Hayley & Charlotte – Sister Session

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 & Olivia – Sister Session

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!
