An Athlete’s Prom | Washington Township, NJ

An Athlete’s Prom in Washington Township, NJ

 

For me, I loved playing sports, hiking, and camping, the pictures I took at prom were kind of like my school pictures. In front of a backdrop that looked nice, but told no story as to who I was.  That’s when I got the idea prom pictures should be taken at a place that means something to you and your date.

PROM… it’s like a magical word when you’re in high school. It kind of is! The glitz and glamour, the dresses and hair do’s, the tux’s; OF COURSE it’s one of the highlights of Junior and Senior year! And why wouldn’t it be? In my area, prom is like a mini wedding, but that makes for a very memorable night.

If you are an athlete, why not combine the glamour of prom with your passion?! When Renae asked me to do her pictures for her junior prom, I incorporated soccer since her and her date have played pretty much their whole lives. A year later we headed out with a few of Renae’s friends and played off the athlete’s glamorous night.

 

Shannon and Erin play softball, while Renae is a soccer player; being able to show off their love of sports and love of fashion was so much fun.

 

Love and Joy.

Red Bank Battlefield Engagement Session | Mandi + Richard

Red Bank Battlefield Engagement Session | Mandi + Richard

 

It’s exciting when you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with; and it’s even more exciting when they know too! Mandi and Richard starting dating a year ago and this past winter Richard asked Mandi to be his forever love.

I was so excited when Mandi called about doing their engagement photos, I started asked a few questions to get to know Mandi and Richard as a couple. Mandi told me they are both in the service; the first place that jumped in my mind for the location of our shoot was Red Bank Battlefield in Red Bank, NJ. What better place to do a shoot than a location that has a lot of history! Red Bank Battlefield was apart of the Revolutionary War, with The Whitall House still standing and used for renactments in the spring. Mandi loved the idea of the location having a rich history.

The Delaware River runs along the battlefield with the Philadelphia skyline in the distance. I was really nervous to take this ring shot but it was so worth it, because Mandi loved the shot while I was taking it and loves it even more now that she has it as her cover photo picture on Facebook.

Love and joy and happy planning.

One Month Old Session in Marlton, NJ | Easton


One Month Old Session in Marlton, NJ | Easton

 

I was so excited when I got the call from Erin about doing her son’s 1 month old portraits. Erin had told me she wanted to do pictures, and just like most things before we knew it, a month had passed. I arrived at Erin’s shortly after noon and found the perfect place to take Easton’s adorable pictures. The lighting was beautiful, and there was enough room for my setup and for me to crawl around the backdrops. Once I got set up, we got Easton ready, and I got him posed; although he did not really care for the poses I picked. He was wide awake as he had a little nap before I got there. Easton would watch me as I picked up my camera and then would wiggle out of the wrap or pose. He even stuck his tongue out at me!

 

 

Joy and Love.

Somerdale, NJ Cat Cake Smash | Dahlia

Somerdale, NJ Cat Cake Smash | Dahlia

As a pet owner, my animals are my family; like many of us, I’m that crazy pet parent. I have done first birthday cake smashes and they were so much fun. Getting to celebrate special occasions, like birthdays and graduations, with my clients is so special, because I am capturing those moments that they will be able to hold onto forever. I started to realize that I don’t have any of those special memories saved of my own little fur babies. So… This year I decided to have cake smash sessions for each of my adorable puppies and silly little kitty.

I started the celebrating off with Dahlia’s 4th birthday! I made her a cupcake. Don’t worry it was the purr-fect kitty treat. I found this recipe and modified it some to fit what Dahlia likes. I ended up only using the tuna fish, egg, and a pinch of cheese. There are many more recipes and places that you can buy a cat cake if you want to have a kitty cake smash too!

Love and Joy!
