Oden Maternity – October 1st, 2017

OdenMaternity (49 of 53)

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!

Greg & Nicole Engagement – September 17th, 2017

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.

Ava’s First Birthday – August 12th, 2017

Ava First Birthday (120 of 241)

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!

Amanda & Jessica Engagement – July 30th, 2017

Here are some highlights from Amanda and Jessica’s engagement shoot this past Sunday at Sayen Gardens in New Jersey.  We had such a good time wandering around the park to find pockets of natural light throughout the afternoon and early evening.

Andrea & Ashley Rainer Wedding – July 14th, 2017

Here are some highlights from Ashley and Andrea’s wedding this past weekend. It’s truly incredible to see so many friends and family members come together for these two. The rain and weather did not stop these two from having the time of their lives together.

Tom & Noelle Maternity – July 8th, 2017

This past Saturday night, I went to Double Trouble State Park in New Jersey with Noelle and Tom for their maternity session. None of us has ever been to this park before, but we heard some good things about it, so when we got there, we just played it by ear. Even without knowing the place beforehand, this turned into one of my favorite locations and we got some of my favorite family portraits I’ve ever taken!  Noelle is due in September, and at this point, I think that pregnancy glow is in full effect. Their daughter Mia joined us and was an absolute pleasure the entire time (and she even tried to steal the show). Check out highlights from the Torres family maternity photos below.
