Will you look at this sweet family?!? As you can see, Amy and Tyler are working on baby #3, and he or she is due to arrive later this month. We did these portraits last month in Belmar Park to document Amy’s beautiful belly, but also to capture this moment in time before they become a family of five. Watch this space for newborn portraits when their littlest decides to join us!
I took these snapshots of my friend Juli’s daughter Claire almost eight years ago, and just came across them last night when going through my archives. Let me share a little secret with you: when you’re a photographer, you are your own worst critic. The longer you work in this field, the harder you are on yourself. I remember visiting Juli in June of 2007, and not being able to resist taking a few snapshots of little Claire because she looked so cute. But upon reviewing the pictures a few hours later, I decided that they were all terrible, and I never even showed them to Juli! I look at them today and think they’re adorable. Typical! Claire is now almost nine, is still extremely adorable, and is into scouting, swimming, running and choir. How time flies!
I took these pictures of Baby C last month when he was exactly six weeks old, and I was so happy to meet him! I had known he was coming for months, so when the time finally to came to meet this little peanut, I couldn’t wait to capture his chubby little cheeks and dimpled feet. He was such a love, too — he never cried or fussed once, just looked at me with those big, solemn baby eyes. So, so cute!
Little J surprised us all by making her debut in 2013 instead of 2014 as projected! I have a feeling this won’t be the last time she does things her own way. I made these portraits of her when she was just eight days old. I’m already madly in love, and I’m so happy that I get to document her entire first year. What a sweet little punkin!
Big sister R is still adjusting to the new status quo. So far, so good!
I love this picture of Jeff and his tiny new daughter.
Just a small sampling of some of my personal favorite from the past year. I could have posted many more, but pulled the plug at 41. Many, many thanks to all my lovely clients. It’s been nothing but a pleasure to be a small part of such important moments! Happy New Year!
