Christmas Tree Farm Mini Sessions- New Jersey Photographer

It feels like summer just started, yet Halloween and Thanksgiving are already taking over the stores. (How!?) It is probably fair to assume that everyone is soaking up their last moments of summer before beginning to mentally prepare for the school year ahead and that holiday cards and family photos aren't in the forefront of people's minds. (Holiday cards!? What!?) I get itIt may seem early, but now is the time to think ahead for booking fall photo sessions. Fall is busy season for photographers! 

This year, I am offering a limited amount of Christmas Tree Farm Mini Sessions that will take place in Mendham, New Jersey on October 16th (rain date October 17th) and November 6th (rain date November 7th). CLICK HERE TO BOOK! I also have limited weekend availability for full-hour family sessions this fall. If you are interested in getting something booked, reach out to me sooner than later!


Feel free to reach out directly if you have any questions! I look forward to seeing your smiling faces this fall.

Stay well!

New Jersey Family Photographer-Mendham, New Jersey

I have been lucky enough to capture all the major milestone for the Millers these past four years and have watched these munchkins grow from newborns to vibrant kiddos. The family recently reached out to share that they will be moving to South Carolina and wanted a final shoot with me in their backyard in Mendham, New Jersey. Cue the tears! It is always a blast chasing these little ones around. So sad to see them move away, but so happy for them and their next chapter.

Bernardsville Family Photographer-New Jersey

Twins twice! Meet the Vincent family! They were blessed with two sets of boy-girl twins. I have been privileged enough to know this fabulous family for years and capture moments for them on multiple occasions. Mom always has these kiddos dressed to the nines and is still managing to put these cuties in matching outfits without a fight. Don't they just look like they are out of a children's clothing boutique catalog? These kids are as sweet as they are adorable. They did not fight me once when I asked them to hold hands, hug, tickle, or love on each other.

Cake Smash and Family Session- Photographer- Hoboken, New Jersey

Ezra is ONE! I have had the pleasure of knowing the Gottliebs since photographing Emily's newborn session years ago. At that session, I managed to pose the family's sleeping Mini Australian Shepherd on baby Emily and it is easily my favorite picture ever taken (see it here!) It pretty much sold me on the breed convincing me to get a Mini Aussie of my own! A year ago, the family reached back out inquiring about newborn photos for their baby boy. Unfortunately we were unable to carry out a newborn session for baby Ezra due to the height of the pandemic, but a year later we were excited to reconnect and capture moments of him turning one. We did a mini family session outside the family's home in Hoboken, New Jersey. Then, Emily was nice enough to let me rearrange her bedroom to set up a little studio in the best lit corner of the apartment. Ezra's big blue eyes nearly broke my camera. He was a total fan of the cake, smashing fistfuls into his face. Such a sweet session.

New Jersey Proposal Photographer- Cider Mill

Kaitlyn and Nick have deCIDERed to get engaged! Ah! What a sweet proposal that I was able to photograph! Nick popped the question this past winter at Ironbound Hard Cider in Asbury, New Jersey. Nick and I coordinated how he envisioned the proposal going. I arrived early to help him set the stage with red roses and rose petals. It was probably the windiest and bitter cold day of the winter, and silly me forgot my gloves. I am not sure how my fingers did not freeze onto the shutter button of my camera. Kaitlyn arrived with her family to enjoy a leisurely afternoon sipping on cider, when she was surprised to see her prince charming waiting to ask her a very important question. The look of shock and surprise on her face was simply priceless. Her family enjoyed a front row seat as did the rest of the visitors who applauded and cheered for the newly engaged couple. Celebratory cider was sipped by the firepits alongside family. Congratulations to this insanely sweet couple!
