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!

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!

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.
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.

I had the pleasure to join and photograph Maisie’s birthday this past weekend. She is a dear and close friend to the family and she actually had a helping hand in raising myself and my brother Devon. You’ll quickly notice that this was an all-white affair! Everyone had a blast and partied all night long through midnight. Check out some highlights of the night below.

Check out some of my favorite photos from Pasquale’s baptism this weekend at Our Lady of Victories Parish at Sayreville, NJ. There were so many that it was hard to choose my favorites. The little sleepyhead slept through half the ceremony, but here’s a little known fact: Pasquale was the only baby getting baptized who didn’t cry.

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.

Although we wound up going out on the coldest day of the season so far (the high was only 36 degrees!), that didn’t get Angela and Michael down at all. In fact, you could feel the warmth between them as they’re patiently (okay, anxiously) awaiting their first baby due next month! We took a stroll around the Asbury Park boardwalk for the shoot and had a fantastic afternoon together. I personally love the way these photos came out and I am so excited to share them with you below!
