It felt like we just went out to the boardwalk and beach at Asbury Park just a few months ago to shoot Michael and Angela’s maternity session, yet here we are celebrating their first child’s first birthday. It was a certainly a fantastic party celebration! We partied with Mike and Sully from Monster’s Inc, smashed a cake, had balloon animals, and danced the afternoon away. Here are some highlights from Pasquale’s first birthday.

Gabby’s Sweet 16 was an incredibly fun way to ring in the new year. We’re not even a week into the new year and this was one fantastic, fun night. Gabby literally crowd-surfed into the party with her best friends, her dance peers, her classmates, and her family friends. The dance floor was full all night, the food was dynamite, and everyone partied the night away like it’s truly 2018. Check out the highlights from this birthday celebration.

I love having the opportunity to photograph a couple’s newborn baby, but wanna know what I love even more? Getting to shoot a couple’s maternity shoot, and THEN photographing the newborn baby only weeks later. This is exactly what happened with Tara and Bob. Introducing to you: baby Daisy. Here are the highlights from our shoot together back in November!

So here’s the deal with Tara and Bob. We all went to college together almost ten years ago (gosh, has it been that long already?!). We went our separate ways as that usually happens. When we met up on Sunday for their maternity shoot, it felt as if time hadn’t passed at all. We cracked jokes all night, and a buck almost killed us. Well, he stood his ground, flared his nostrils like a bull, and growled at us, so we decided it’s in our best interest to go the other way. Otherwise it was a fantastic afternoon and evening celebrating their pregnancy and the excitement of becoming new parents next month. Here are some highlights from our shoot. Enjoy!

These two were so much fun! Greg and Nicole had me laughing almost the entire afternoon when we went out to shoot their engagement photos. They also seriously make my job look easy – I did not have to tell them what to do or how to pose for the most part. Here are some of my favorite photos from their engagement shoot at Asbury Park about two weeks ago.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of shooting Ava’s first birthday at my alma mater Rowan University. I feel like I’m starting to become part of Monique’s family as this is the third time I’ve come out to photograph her kids’ birthday parties. They are such a fun family, and I know that every time we go, we will have a great time and walk away with a full belly. This party was no different. Here are some highlights from the Ava’s Trolls-themed party!

Amanda, Jessica, and I went to Sayen Gardens in Hamilton, NJ for their engagement shoot. They are getting married in September, but this is their first time out taking photographs together to celebrate their engagement. We had such a good time! It was as casual and laid-back as one would expect from a summer stroll through the park. Birds were out chirping their songs away, rabbits danced along the paths and trails we took, and even some deer popped in to say hello (from a healthy distance away). All in all, it was a great way to spend a Sunday evening. Check out the highlights from this photoshoot below!
