The Perrella Family

I just recently got an email from a woman who was pretty close to her due date and she wanted to do a maternity/newborn session with me.  I was so delighted to meet this precious family.

With three little boys under the age of five, life is quite busy.  I was thrilled to know that they were expecting a little girl! Yay! Pink is so perfect in every way! One really cute fun fact is that if you notice in the photograph below, there are numbers written on the easter eggs.  It represents each child's birthdate. So adorable!

Our session was so sweet and spontaneous and it was in a very natural environment.  First we started our photos outdoors and had some fun with a little antique stroller.  The boys really enjoyed pushing it around and pretending that their baby sister was in it.

We then moved up to the studio where we were able to let the boys run free and have some special mommy time individually as well as all together.   We even managed to grab dad for a few of our shots.  

Since our maternity session, Marianna gave birth to their princess Isabelle and I am expecting them to come to the studio this Friday for their newborn session.   I cannot wait for all the pink and the excitement and joy to capture. Stay tuned...........

The Webb Family

This year I have had so many wonderful family portraits to photograph.  I just love when families come together to celebrate their love and relationships in such a beautiful way!  Sometimes it is several months or even years since many family members have been together.  

The Webb Family wanted to celebrate their parents and thought there was no better way than to have all of the members photographed together.  Especially with growing families, it is wonderful to have grandparents with their grandchildren to have these memories for a lifetime! We even captured a few of the couples together which I thought was so sweet.

The children here in this family were so adorable and had such fun just running around for the session.  I love to let kids be kids so there is lots of fun and laughter while I am shooting.  The candid moments truly are my favorites.  Please enjoy this beautiful family!


There are so many things that happen in our lives.  I love when I meet new people.  I am a total people person and my husband says that I could talk the doors right off of a garage!!!! That is what I love most about my job.  Dealing with so many things as a photographer, especially wedding photography, brings you to a place where you are always with people.  

I had the privilege of meeting Cinnamon purely by coincidence.  I was selling my shoot sac camera bag and she happened to see my ad.  We realized we did not live that far from each other so we decided to meet.  It was a quick meeting, but afterwards I went and checked out her website.  It was clear that she was a believer in Jesus!  I contacted her and told her that we both share the love of Jesus . She was delighted to find a friend here in New Jersey seeing she is new to the area. We set a date and met for lunch. We spent about 6 hours in the restaurant and chatted the whole time! I thank God for this precious friend.  She has brought so much joy into my life, besides from taking some awesome headshots for me (I never like my photos, but she rocked it!) We have tremendous respect for one another as fellow photographers and we build each other up all the time. She has taught me so much for my business such as blogging (yes, she created a monster) she designed this amazing new website, introduced me to photo mechanic and has saved me so much time that I am singing her praises every time I have to cull my images.  Cinnamon and I are actually going to be working together this May on a wedding in Brooklyn New York.  I cannot wait!

We decided together that we both needed some headshots so we went out in very cold weather and had a blast!  She is funny, smart, full of life and so beautiful inside and out! I am so pleased with these beautiful images I captured of her.  I think they totally show her awesome personality!   I hope you enjoy.  Check out her gorgeous work at

Hannah Marie

Well this little beauty was all of seven days old when she arrived with her mom and dad in the studio.  I have had the pleasure of knowing Ashley and Chris for many years and it was so wonderful to capture these precious moments for them of their beautiful family.  Hannah was around seven pounds and seven days old and that is really the ideal time to photograph a newborn session.

She was pretty sleepy throughout our time together and I could not be happier with the results!
