It is hard to think about winter holidays when it is 85+ degrees out but winter IS COMING! – any GoT fans out here? :). And with winter holidays there is always the inevitable task of picking out images and designing your holiday cards.

Well you are in luck because it is time for my annual ‘Christmas in the Summer’ Special! If you book and hold a new Signature or a Simplicity session between now and September 16th, you will receive a complimentary set of 24 custom designed 5×7 cards with your order*! Just mention the code ‘ Christmas in July’ when booking your session. And then cross ‘Getting Holiday Cards done’ off your To Do list and enjoy the rest of your summer!

I only have a handful of dates left (first availability is the week of August 7th) between now and mid September so if you want to book your session, email me ASAP before all dates are gone!

*If you hold a newborn session you will receive a set of custom designed birth announcements instead.

This post will be at the top of the blog while this special is going on.

My girls ADORE their cousins.  Unfortunately we don’t live that close together and they only get to see each other 2 or 3 times a year but boy, do they make those times count!  And every time they come up North to New Jersey I drag everyone to my photography studio for a few quite portraits.  We did not have much time for this photo session (the baby was crying, I was tired from lack of sleep, everyone was hungry) but I was able to get a few quick images of the girls – I think their personalities do shine through these photos.

What made this photo session super special was 1) we had a new cousin in the pictures and 2)my parents came with us and I was able to get a shot of them with their FIVE granddaughters!

The day after I got back from a girls’ trip to LA (more on that later) I headed to my Ridgewood photography studio to meet this adorable 13 months old her and her super sweet Mom.  Little E. looked at me and then flashed me one of the most gorgeous smiles I’ve seen!  She was so happy – going to and from her Mom (can I just say how much I love Frankenstein-style walks!), ‘reading’ her book and just being a happy all around girl.   This session flew by and I cannot wait to photograph her whole family in the fall!

I’ve been photographing many many many adorable babies at my Ridgewood photography studio lately but I have to say that this one is one of my favorites… Maybe the fact that I am her aunt and may be a teeny tiny bit biased has something to do with it but seriously – how cute is she?!  Baby Michelle is the youngest in the family and is absolutely adored by everyone – including my dog!  She has chunky legs, even chunkier cheeks, elbow dimples, huge eyes, super long eye lashes and the most amazing smile!   Michelle just turned 8 months – which is a perfect age for studio photos:)

Live Love Laugh Photos is a Bergen county premier photography studio that specializes in authentic children and family portraits.  Our Ridgewood photography studio is a perfect location for fun and natural children portraits.  So if you want to capture your baby as she is growing up, give us a call!
