Being a Bergen county family photographer I mostly photograph families with young-ish children. Parents want to get pictures of their newborn, babies, toddlers, little kids and come back to me year after year after year for those photos. But once children reach a certain age – around 10 or so sessions become less frequent – kids are busy with after school activities and social lives and they just don’t change as much every year. So while I do photograph tweens and teens I don’t do it often. But it is always a treat when I do – it is nice to have an adult conversation with my subjects! I believe these sessions are as important as sessions with young kids – as they are only a few more years before ‘grown up’ children leave the nest and go to college and I think it is priceless to have these last few years together captured.
I loved meeting this family – Mom and Dad and I hit it off at their pre-session consultation. They never had their family pictures taken and they wanted to remedy the situation before their oldest went to college. And when I met the kids I loved them as well! I imagine that as a teenager having a photographer follow you around and pose you in a public place may not be very comfortable or fun – but these boys did great! They were funny and relaxed, naturals in front of the camera and very entertaining! Mom and Dad were amazing together and I cannot get over the way this Dad looked at his wife – with so much love!
They are “in love with the photos” (their words!) and I have to say that I love the way they came out as well! And I know that a beautiful canvas collage and individual canvases these guys ordered will bring make they smile for years to come!

This was my second session photographing adorable Ms. E – first time I met her was for her Ridgewood studio photo session when she was a year old. This was the first time when I photographed this whole family though and it was a blast! These guys chose downtown Ridgewood as a location for their fall family photo session. I’ve said it so many times that Ridgewood is a great little town for Bergen County photo sessions – I have clients come here from all over – Tenafly, Franklin Lakes, Cloister, etc. And for families who live in Ridgewood, like these guys, having a photoshoot in downtown makes it even more special because that’s their town. One year we had our own family session in Ridgewood because it is so cute and I wanted to capture the town of my kids’ childhood in pictures.
This family session was just perfect – the weather was great,Ms. E was absolutely adorable (always on the go!) and the family was so happy and absolutely in love with their little girl. You may think that I only chose images in which they are laughing but that’s how every single image from this session was – genuine laughter and joy of being together!
For these guys’ fall family photo session we decided to meet up in downtown Ridgewood. Ridgewood is a great place for urban photo shoots – it is full of fun and colorful spots there and I love photographing families (especially Ridgewood families) there. It works great for little kids and teens and tweeens. And it worked great for this family session. These three are something else… they were crazy and funny and silly and sweet – just like their Mom told me they would be. Big sister N. is turning 13 and is well on her way to her teens – she is edgy and cool and can make anyone laugh. G. – the middle one – is a ‘space cadet’ according to her Mom – she is mellow and very sweet and I loved how confident she is (when I showed her a few pictures I took of her and to every one she would say ‘I look great!’). And little brother S. – he is absolutely ADORED by his sister and his parents! I wanted to capture the kids being themselves and that included some silly stairs at their brother, a few cool poses and a few thoughtful/quiet looks.
And of course, even though the focus of this photo session was on the kids, I did capture a few images of this family of five together – family images are very important in my opinion!
