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.

The Many Faces of Baby June

Who would have guessed three months ago that sweet quiet baby June would now be so full of spunk?  Her photo shoot was a dream because she gave me about a million different ‘looks’.  This girl has a leg up on Zoolander himself. Just check out her ‘Blue Steel’ and other fantastic expressions.

I can’t wait to see the girl that June grows up to be!

18 yr-old Collie/Shepherd “Dutch”

Dutch brings new meaning to “senior portrait”.  At 18 years old, he is a whopping 88 dog years old! (At least according my Google search just now.) He’s still got it though, gray beard and all.

Btw, I was tempted to file this under ‘baby’ since we all know dogs are basically our kids. That is until you actually have kids, at which point they are temporarily relegated to just ‘dog’ before being reinstated to baby again.

…which was exhausting.

Why let babies get all the cute feet pictures? Love the old man hair growing between Dutch’s toes.
