A year ago today I had the great fortune of ringing in the New Year with Kate & Chris as they became husband and wife! To celebrate their anniversary, here's a look back at their special day. So honored they chose me to be their photographer and share in the day with them. I loved bearing witness of their true love and wish them many more happy anniversaries to come. As always, much thanks goes out to my forever groom, Josh, for second shooting for me!
Happy New Year!

Meeting this fantastic couple was truly serendipitous. Rob and Kim moved to Jersey three years ago on the exact same week as myself and my husband. I met them on my first Sunday at church and almost instantly knew we'd all be good friends. Kim has become one of my closest friends and Rob and my husband, Josh, are like two peas in a pod. They really are some of the best people I know. My latest mini session with them was absolutely wonderful...
I know I'm a little behind with the whole "year in review" thing but I figured as long
as I published this before February 1st I was still good...!
In no particular order, here are my top 16 portraits of 2016 and
why they were my favorites of the year.
Merry Christmas Eve!!
One of my favorite things about marrying into my husband's family is their annual tradition of cutting down the Christmas tree! Ever since Josh and Stacie were really little the family has gone out to a Christmas Treen Farm to pick out and cut down a tree. They even have a song they sing as the tree is being chopped. Having grown up in a household with a fake tree, having a real one facinates me. I love the charm and character of a real tree! It brings an extra bit of Christmas cheer to the season.
It seems like winter temperatures are slowly creaping in so I'm trying to take full advantage of every last bit of the warm autumn sun. My latest family portrait session in Liberty State Park was certainly a super breezy one! I had been trying to schedule Marta, Alan, and little Isaac's mini session for some time now and we were ecstastic to finally nail down a date. Their session day came and thought the temperature was fair we had huge gusts of wind that made it quite cold. They were such troupers to bear through the crazy wind and we were still able to snap some great pics!
Alan is the bishop of my church congregation here in Jersey. I first got to know he and Marta by attending our church choir practices and I instantly fell in love with their kind heartedness. Its been a joy watching them become parents to Isaac, who is just the cutest little munchkin. I feel so grateful for their sweet friendship and blessed to have been entrusted with photographing their adorable family!
