One Saturday morning bright and early I met with this family in a park in Wyckoff, New Jersey to do their family photo session. The weather was perfect, the flowers were blooming, the outfits this Mom picked out worked so well together, the kids were adorable and funny, the parents were loving and up for anything – and all of that made for a perfect family photo session!
There were lots of sweet unposed moments:
many rounds of red light/green light:
a few cool dance moves:
and an unscripted tree climbing – seriously, how cool is this MOM to be able to do this??!!!
and lots and lots of laughter:

In this edition of Throw Back Thursday I present to you a Ridgewood family session from 2015!
As a New Jersey family children photographer, I have a lot of repeat clients who come back to me to have their family portraits done year after year, session after session. I love catching up with parents and always look forward to seeing how much kids change from session to session.
Take this Ridgewood family. I first met them for a session for big sister E. when she was turning one and her baby sister L. was still in her Momma’s tummy. Then we did L. newborn session at my Ridgewood studio – it was awesome to meet this adorable baby girl face to face. Then there was a studio Holiday session at my Ridgewood photo studio – it is amazing how different baby L. looked from her newborn photos. And lastly there was this session – to celebrate baby L. turning 1 and this amazing Mom (and Dad) surviving a year with two kids under two:)
These sisters are both adorable but are so different in terms of personalities, which was so interesting to witness. Big sister E. is a bit dramatic and L. is so laid back and easy going! I was able to get lots of smiles from both of them though:)
I am thrilled that a beautiful collage of canvases that I designed for them with images from this session will join a beautiful collage of canvases with images from a session last year that I did of them! I love when my clients decorate their homes with wall art from their sessions – I think there is no better way to bring a home to life!
In business since 2008, Live Love Laugh Photos is an award winning photographer known in Saddle River, Ridgewood, Franklin Lakes and other towns throughout Bergen County for authentic family photographers that capture the essence of kids and families.

Every year I try to take pictures of my girls in the spring among blooming trees and flowers. Last April we road-tripping in Europe (still need to blog that trip!) and by the time we got back all the flowers were gone. I was hoping to their session this year but things got busy with clients sessions and I almost did not make this photoshoot happen… almost! I rallied at the very last minute, grabbed my kids in their favorite outfits (a dress for Mia and a tank top/jeans and her signature cat ears handband for Alexa) and off we went. We literally had 15 minutes and that’s all it took to capture my kids are they are silly expressions and all! And as an added bonus Victor came with me so we snapped a few pictures of each other. Neither Victor, nor I were camera ready but that did not stop us from getting in front of the camera with our girls!
To all moms out there – Happy Mother’s Day!
Enjoy this blast from the past in this edition of blog Throw Back Thursday
One of my favorite things about being a New Jersey family photographer is meeting children and families from all over in Bergen County. And one of my favorite things about meeting new families is seeing love and interaction between parents and kids and brothers and sisters. And there was so much love at this family session – so much of it that I could almost physically feel it! As the youngest child and the only girl in a family with two big brothers you expect this young lady to be loved and doted on. But to say that this baby girl is loved is an understatement. She is absolutely ADORED by her big brothers and parents. The brothers were showering her with love (and grass!), kissing and hugging her and making her laugh. She is one lucky little girl:) Actually all five of them are pretty lucky because they belong together!
