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

One of my favorite things as a Bergen County family photographer is watching families grow year after year.  I cannot say how excited I am to see my ‘old’ families come back to me for their annual photo sessions – I get to catch up with parents, be amazed at how much the kids have change and capture them year after year.

If these guys look familiar it is because you’ve seen them on the blog many many times – this is their fifth session with me!  I first met them when Ms. E. was still in her momma’s belly -and big brother W. was just over a year old!  Every year we choose a different setting for their Ridgewood family photo session – we’ve done pictures at their Ridgewood home, in a park in Wyckoff, in downtown Ridgewood and at a farm in Mahwah.  But every year we always do the same shot – on the steps of their beautiful Ridgewood home with their dogs.  I think it is so cool that we have the same photograph captured year after year after year!

The Mom said that this year she just wanted to capture their kids beautiful and sweet faces and my Ridgewood photographer studio is a perfect location for that:)  But even though we spent majority of the photo session at the studio, we did get the annual shot in front of the house!

I love this family and I can honestly say that after knowing and photographing them for five years I think of them as my friends, not just my clients!

Live Love Laugh Photos is a professional Bergen County photographer that specializes in family and children photography.  With a beautiful natural light photography studio located in the heart of Bergen County – in Ridgewood, we offer studio and on-location photography.  In business since 2008, we’ve photographed hundreds families in children in Ridgewood, Saddle River, Franklin Lakes, Wyckoff, Oradell and other towns in Bergen County and Northern New Jersey.  If you are looking for a children or family photographer in Northern New Jersey give us a call!

I loved being pregnant – all seven months of it (my girls were born 2 months early).  I think a pregnant female body is absolutely beautiful and definitely deserves to be captured.  When I was pregnant with my girls, I hired a photographer to capture my pregnant (and a pretty large!) form and to this day I absolutely love my pictures.  So it is no surprise that I love maternity photo sessions at my Ridgewood photography studio.

But this maternity session was something else – this Momma to be was absolutely STUNNING (as you can see from the pictures!).  But what’s was even more amazing was how natural she was in front of the camera – she got into all (sometimes not very comfortable) poses I asked her to get into, and just rocked the shoot.  I felt like I was a high fashion photographer working with a professional model on this photoshoot:)  We started our maternity photo session at my photography studio and then went outside for a few outdoor pictures.  There is a beautiful blue wall right next door to my studio – it photographs beautifully and I love how great it looked against the hot pink of his hot Momma’s dress!

I love having my Ridgewood photography studio and all family and children photo sessions I do there.  But my first ‘love’ is on-location lifestyle photography, which is what I’ve been known for in New Jersey for over 6 years!  There is something very special about photographing children and their parents at their homes, where they feel the most well, at home!

Whenever I have clients come back to me year after year, I always do try to capture at least one image similar to what we’ve done in the past – it is always amazing to see how much the kids have grown.  But I make sure that each sessions is very different from prior ones – so that my families don’t have the same sets of pictures taken every year.

This is my forth session with this family – we’ve done a park session, a studio session and a combo of a downtown Ridgewood/home session.  So this year we decided to do the whole session at their beautiful home and it was AWESOME – not that I had any doubts:)  I loved photographing beautiful G. in her playroom – surrounded by all the toys she loves, reading her favorite books and playing with her puppy.   This girl is seriously amazing to photograph – she is silly and funny but also very mature and wise beyond her years and I absolutely ADORE her!

We got a very nice combination of lifestyle images and beautiful portraits; beautiful smiles and genuine emotions.   I love how the images came out but what’s even more important – her parents are thrilled with them!:)

Being a New Jersey family and children photographer I specialize in beautiful authentic children and family portraits.  But that does not mean that I don’t offer (or don’t love!) other types of photography.  Since I opened the doors of my natural light photography studio in Ridgewood, I expanded to boudoir (check out my new jersey boudoir photography website), professional headshots and portraits of grown-ups!

I loved meeting this beautiful woman for her photo session.  We started at the Ridgewood studio and then headed outside for some fun and casual outdoor images.  This session was so fun – within literally 5 minutes of meeting me, she told me that she was having a blast and I had an great quality of making people feel at ease!  And as you can imagine, that made me really happy:)
