Oden Newborn – November 19th, 2017

Oden Newborn 11.19.17 (18 of 49)

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!

Check out some highlights below from a double newborn shoot from last week. These two best friends from birth (born just under two weeks apart) were the perfect models! I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to not only photograph these two, but to capture the magic and excitement of the beginning of these two families’ next chapter.

Tyler’s 1st Birthday – July 23rd, 2016

Tyler1stBDay (79 of 151)

After covering the Muchas’ maternity photos as well as Tyler’s newborn photos, I am ecstatic to wish a very happy birthday to the birthday boy! On Saturday, Tyler’s friends and family came out to celebrate his first birthday at Vincent’s Ice Cream Parlor in Mt. Holly, NJ. With outside temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees, a party at an ice cream shop turned out to be the perfect setting for this celebration! With the dinosaur theme, not one but two birthday cakes, an epic cake smash, ice cream for all, and the company of close friends and family, everyone at the party had a great afternoon with the Muchas.

Noelle Rae – Six Months Old: April 30th, 2016

Six Months!

I simply refuse to believe Noelle’s been a part of our life for over six months now. Wasn’t she born just a few weeks ago?

Noelle Rae – Five Months Old: March 31st, 2016

Noelle Rae – Four Months Old: February 29th, 2016

Four Months

This little girl is growing before my very eyes! From the day to day life, I see no difference: to me, she looks like the same girl who was born on Halloween. However, this photo series (we are a third of the way through a year already?!) allows me to look back at specific set points and actually see the changes happening. It’s also pretty amazing to see her start to develop her personality and become somewhat self-aware.

Noelle Rae – Three Months Old: January 31st, 2016

3-Month Shoot

This little lady has now graduated from being a newborn to being an infant. Her personality is starting to shine through, and you can even see this personality in the photos below. It’s hard to believe she’s already a quarter of a year old.

A garden of Love grows in a Grandmother’s heart.

– Anonymous.

Here is a story from my personal experiences. Words cannot express the kind of love and adoration I see between my mother and my three-month-old daughter. I always knew my Mom to be one of the kindest, gentlest, and most loving people I’ve ever known, but it’s truly something extraordinary to see this come alive again as she transitions (almost seamlessly) into grand-motherhood.

Here she is with me back in 1986.
Baby Austin

Here are some photos of the two together. They are in chronological order, and they are mostly candids from family gatherings and holidays – I enjoy capturing natural moments as they happen. These photographs begin with the day Noelle was born (Halloween!) and they end at my birthday weekend (the weekend of January 9th) at a family gathering.  Enjoy!

Noelle Rae – Two Months Old: December 31st, 2015

Month 2

Happy new year! This year has been such an incredible year for me, both professionally and personally. I love what 2015 has brought for my photography. I photographed a few newborn sessions, a bridal shower, two baby showers, a maternity shoot, a bridal party prep, two first birthday parties, some headshots, and countless pleasure shoots, be it events, family, friends, and some other things in between. I am exhilarated to see what 2016 brings me. I already have a few exciting events lined up later this year, but the future is still unwritten and there for the taking.

And now, without any further adieu, here are my daughter’s 2nd-month photos.
