Family

I met Megan and Paul through a friend. Their session was a family /couples shoot/birth announcement/and photos with their dogs… all wrapped in one. I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved this session. Standing on a mountain, with 360 degree views of phenomenal landscapes, with a beautiful couple…it really can’t get better than this. I am so stoked about these images as it also marked a new way of seeing and editing. So for me, it meant a pivotal moment in terms of the way I shoot. Here is just a smathering of the images I shot. I literally want to put all of them up, but I digress… you will just have to be content with these =)

About once a year, photographers of all types head to Vegas for the annual WPPI conference which holds classes on all sorts of subjects as well as a trade show exhibiting new equipment, products and fancy gadgets. Having already been to it twice, my sole intention of going this time was to make use of the desert that Nevada is all too happy to provide. So after spending a few days at the conference, Nikki, Chip and I headed out to the Nelson Ghost Town about 45 mins away from the strip. A popular destination for photographers because of all the rustic elements, history and props to use in their photos. This time would be no different as the three of us explored all it had to offer. Truth be told, we barely scratched the surface of all it had to offer and are already planning to go back again during the next conference. We braved cacti, saw Jackrabbits, and had a beautiful background for our photos no matter where we turned. Below are a few of my favorites and can’t wait to go back!

There’s not many people you can not see for 4 years, then just pick up where you left off. Stephanie is one of them. Even though we are now separated by the expanse of the United States, I found myself with some free time on my latest trip to New Jersey. She recommended a cool park and I found the sweeeeetest location. This was a birth announcement + maternity + family session all wrapped in one. I am excited to meet Ryker for the first time and can’t wait to meet the baby on the way. I loved the fall colors on this one.New Jersey Family Photographer, Family Photography in New Jersey, Family Photographers , New Jersey Photographer New Jersey Family Photographer, Family Photography in New Jersey, Family Photographers , New Jersey Photographer parvin-state-park-family-session-3 parvin-state-park-family-session-4 New Jersey Family Photographer, Family Photography in New Jersey, Family Photographers , New Jersey Photographer parvin-state-park-family-session-7 parvin-state-park-family-session-9 New Jersey Family Photographer, Family Photography in New Jersey, Family Photographers , New Jersey Photographer parvin-state-park-family-session-11 parvin-state-park-family-session-12 parvin-state-park-family-session-13 New Jersey Family Photographer, Family Photography in New Jersey, Family Photographers , New Jersey Photographer

When photographing the Critchley’s, there is a guarantee of a fun time and a ton laughs. For this year’s session, we headed to Thompson Park as it is absolutely gigantic with lots of areas within that make perfect natural backdrops . We walked around, shared funny stories and even took a few photos along the way. Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

I met the Ostrowski family when my partner in crime and I photographed their engagement session and wedding. Needless to say, we got along swimmingly, and have been friends ever since. We got in a nice little family session in right before it started to rain. We walked through this cool park by their house and definitely loved the city feel to the images. I can’t wait to get back up there and do another session.

The one thing I love about my job is progression. I get to see people through various stages of their life and see the evolution of family. First and foremost, the engagement session. I remember the day walking through Central Park getting to know The Corbrans when they were only two. A few months later, a wedding happened. Then I saw a baby bump… and now? Now we have this lil guy with wide eyes checking out all the trees and grass in Allaire State Park. So happy to document couples and their lives together!

While I was in New Jersey this past week, I was put in touch with Cindii. She was looking to have  New Jersey maternity session done and is expecting the baby to arrive any day  .  So on a beautiful morning, we headed to Belmar super early  so that we could take advantage of the best light available and beat the crowds of beach goers that would soon populate the area. I loved this session so much because not only did I make a new friend, but Cindii was also down to do photos not typically done on maternity sessions. When I suggested doing some in the water, thereby getting her dress wet, she was totally down to brave the cold water and crashing waves to get something truly unique. I cannot wait to see pics of the baby and had such a great time on this session!

I recently got to photograph Colton for the very first time. Colton has to be one of the smartest people I have ever met… including adults. It’s not every day you get to meet someone who watches YouTube videos and from that,can both learn and understand Russian as well as know the Greek alphabet. Heck, I’m 39 years old and I don’t know any of that. We got to play around the yard and I was even shown the volcano they made that with a little baking soda, soap and some vinegar, I got to see erupt. I kind of want to make a volcano now. So while I do that, here are a few images from his session

I got to see little Jack this past weekend, and when showing up , the overwhelming urge to squeeze his lil cheeks came over me. I mean, doesn’t that happen with everyone else when seeing newborns? As of late, I’ve been receiving more and more requests to do baby shoots, so I loved having the opportunity to document this lil guy at his home. Below are some of my favorites from the session.
