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.

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!

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.
