The Samuelsen Girls

I don’t know if it’s that they are so gorgeous, have such amazing coloring (the eyes, the hair!) or that they come in a trio, that I can’t ever wait for my next chance to shoot the Samuelsen girls. This time, I finally got all three sisters together for a casual shoot at home.  I was inspired by keeping a modern style but with a vintage twist.

Grandma’s In Town

There is something just so perfectly lovely about grandmothers isn’t there?  With Owen and Luke’s grandma, aka ‘Mimi’, in town – there was lots of kisses and trips to the park between them all week.  I’m glad we had a chance to get squeeze in a session so Mimi could get some pics of her and her handsome grandsons to take home with her.  Seeing three generations together in a portrait is, in a word, awesome.

Btw, I am currently loving my friend’s blog aptly titled ‘Lunch With Grandma‘ which perfectly captures all kinds of lovely (and hilarious) nuances of our grandparent’s generation.  Here’s to grandmothers everywhere!

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.
