A Fall Family Maternity Session

My most recent portrait session was for a beautiful growing family of three who will soon be four...

The Figueroa family are repeat clients and friends of mine who are excitedly awaiting the arrival of their new baby boy and making their current adorable toddler a big brother!

As soon as the glowing momma-to-be contacted me and we agreed on an October day to shoot, I began brainstorming the setting and subtle feel of Fall I wanted to portray in these captures. I decided in shooting both indoors and outdoors to convey the intimacy and excitement of this most precious moments in their lives. I believe the following images evoke just that. Enjoy!






















































































Congratulations to this beautiful family, cannot wait to meet the newest member of the family!

Stay tuned for upcoming portrait sessions, interior decorating projects and event ideas.

A Sunset Beach Family Session

My last family session of the summers season (exactly one day before the official end of summer) was a doozie... Made such by the perfect weather - not too cold, not too warm -,  the golden natural light of the sunset with it's soft illumination on the Long Branch beach of the Jersey Shore and last but definitely not least, my lovely models.  A beautiful family featuring three generations.

The Puig family are beloved friends of mine, and repeat clients as you can see here and here. I was so excited to finally shoot and highlight their newest edition, a scrumptious little ball of rambunctious energy and unapologetic adorableness, my adopted nephew - Brandon. 


 See for yourself, tell me he is not completely delicious!?! 






















































A good selfie is always necessary when the opportunity calls for it:)




























These mother/son bond moments are priceless.
















How about the discovery of sand...Brandon seemed perplexed at first...but then he realized sand could be fun!












A lot of fun was had by all! 






Especially this little adorable human, who learned to love the beach like a good Jersey Boy should!







Hope you enjoyed some of the highlights of this lovely family shoot as much as I did taking it. 

Stay tuned, many upcoming Fall Photo Sessions and Projects to come!
