Hey everybody! Haha! I have never had such a busy summer in my life! I feel terrible that I have to ignore the website and social media when things are jumping at the studio but I am so grateful to have made the most incredible summer memories with you guys. You are going to flip! I feel this summer has made some of my best work yet! Coming up on my “official” 20th year of photography, I have to say this is my favorite work of all time so far. Vacation sessions, destination sessions, adventure sessions, and story sessions, it has been incredible. (and exhausting) lol! I hired an assistant this summer and she has been a great help on the photo shoots, I am never going to be able to let her go! But she does have to go back to school in less than a couple weeks. Sigh..... I really loved having her. She's probably reading this so I want to say thank you, Ava!!
Earlier this summer I did the sweetest first birthday family shoot. I met this beautiful family when big brother was one, I met his little sister the week she was born and now she's already one year old! I am so glad I know how fast time flies so I can give these gifts of time to families. The first year goes especially fast and has the most changes of all. Precious moments, you guys!! This is Smithville NJ, probably one of my favorite spots for an outdoor first birthday session. There's so much there for families to do and see. And the little village-vibe keeps kids excited and exploring. Lately, I am falling in love with the outtakes from a session. Imperfection has become one of my favorite things about a shoot. That's an entirely different blog for another day, but for now, I want to share all the minutes I love from this photo shoot, including the funny outtakes and not so perfect shots because those are my favorites of all time.
