I can't even tell you how much I LOVE this first birthday photo session! This first birthday shoot was scheduled for a different location but the fees to work there were just unfair. We decided to “try” somewhere else last minute and I am ecstatic that we discovered such a fun new place to make these family photos! How happy my creative heart was on this day. Funny Farm Rescue in May's Landing NJ is something new and different after a summer of ticks and bugs and being limited to where we could photograph our sessions, I was thrilled to be welcomed by the owner Laurie and ALL her very loving friendly animals! I had the best time here and I am so happy to have photographed these memories of little C's first birthday on the farm. It was hysterical when the animals came over to give us love! Such happy animals. Oh, I had a blast. Gorgeous light, gorgeous family, hysterical animals and the cutest baby boy, I couldn't ask for more.
And in studio news.... my idea of keeping super busy when my daughter left for college was NOT the best decision on my part. Sigh. So just to keep you all updated, we have about three September dates left. October is already full!!! We are booking November right now. I know there's a lot of you wanting to get on the calendar but I have to put things into perspective here, there are only 30 days in each month and ONE of me. I am considering hiring someone to help with the administrative things but I am not quite able to afford it yet. Each one of my sessions is a piece of artwork to me, a project, a dream. I can't rush or just throw them together. I have had an assistant this summer and it has been great! I am working on perhaps a Christmas special for November. This might solve the issue of needing 30 more days in each month. Lol! So I will hopefully (if I can catch a breath after next week) look into a holiday location for that. I want to thank you all for your support and love and understanding as I navigate through this busy year.
