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!

Fraternal Twins Kaitlyn & Sofia at 1-week old

The best part of photographing my twin nieces… #1 They have ridiculously good genes. 🙂  And, #2 I got to hang out and shoot them for over two hours! They are only a week old and already have distinct little personalities.  Kaitlyn is so sweet and a born supermodel – always knows where the good light is and I swear would always pose towards it dramatically with her hand by her face.  Sofia is gorgeous and was so easygoing and sleepy as we moved her around.  She is such a thinker too, like she’s solving the world’s debt crisis. Cannot wait to watch these girls grow up and spoil them like crazy!

Sofia…

Kaitlyn trying to get into the good light while her sister snoozes.

Like a true supermodel, Kaitlyn demanded a triple grande soy latte mid-shoot.

Yep, that did the trick.

Sister love.

Kaitlyn.

Sofia.

Happy dad. 🙂

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!
