Live Love Laugh | Photos by Lena » Ridgewood award-winning photographer; top 10 NYC Family photographer

Here are a few images from a session I had with one of my favorite Ridgewood families!   Nina is a dear friend of mine – she is the one whose got me addicted to running and who is pushing me (in a good way!) and helping me get back to shape:)

I’ve been wanting to photographer her and her beautiful family for a while.  They are some of the most laid back people I know and I knew that a lifestyle session and natural relaxed images (basically, the types of sessions and image that I am known for!) will fit them perfectly.  And that’s exactly what we did!  We started the session at their Ridgewood home with a game of Candy Land, then spent some time playing in the yard and then headed to downtown Ridgewood for a few more shots.  I love fun and dynamic family and kids images I captured at this session.  And as always, there are a few portraits of the kids that I got – something that I think will look great on their holiday cards!

I am back from my vacation to Montenegro and Croatia – it was AMAZING and will get its own blog post.  My first order of business upon my return is sharing photographs from a Ridgewood family photo session I had at my natural light photography studio and downtown.  You may remember this family – I love photographing them and has had the pleasure of doing so many many times during these last couple of years.  I first ‘met’ baby M. when she was in her Mommy’s belly – during her maternity photo session in Wyckoff, NJ.  Then we had a great newborn session and many other sessions during the last couple of years.  I cannot say enough how much I love photographing this family – it feels a lot more like spending time with old friends rather than working:)  And I LOVE little M. – who is now a big girl – talking and asking me when I can come over to her house again:)  She is so squeezable and huggable and I love how in love her parents are with her!

We started this session at my studio in Ridgewood where ‘big girl’ M. played with her favorite doll – Baby Lilly – which included changing her diaper and – which M. did wearing a rubber glove!:)  And after getting great shots at the studio, we headed outside for outdoor images.  I love the location of my studio – it is right in the heart of downtown Ridgewood and there are so many great locations for children and family photo sessions within a 2 min walk from my studio doors!

M.’s Dad was able come from work just in time to join us at the end of the session.  I did not seem him come (he came from behind me) – I was busy capturing the expression of pure JOY of M.’s face – I thought she was so happy to see me, but then I turned away and saw that it was directed towards her Dad!  I was glad that I got to document it though:)
