Family session with an ‘older’ newborn in Franklin Lakes | Bergen county newborn photographer

I am back from my vacation (which was WONDERFUL and will get its own blog post!) and ready to share some beautiful images from a recent newborn family lifestyle session I had in Franklin Lakes NJ.  I loved meeting this family and capturing their time as a family of four!  A lot of photographers say that it is best to have a newborn session as soon as possible after the baby is born – preferably within first 10 days.   But I love photographing ‘older’ newborns – they have more personality, are a lot more alert, we can capture them being loved and interacting with their parents – I do think that lifestyle newborn sessions offer a lot more variety than typical newborn sessions.

Baby H. was over 6 weeks old and he did GREAT at the session – he was wide awake and alert (so I was able to capture his beautiful big blue eyes), he ‘played’ with Mommy and snuggled with his Daddy.  His big brother B. had a great time playing with his toys, being tickled by Mommy and thrown up in the air by Daddy!

This whole family was such a pleasure to photograph!  They were relaxed, happy and so in love with each other.  And capturing that love and family connections is my absolutely favorite part of family photography!  And at the end of the session they told me that they had a great time, which always makes me very happy to hear:)

I absolutely loved meeting and working with them and look forward to working with them again in the future.  And I am thrilled that they ordered a beautiful collage of gallery wrapped canvases for their family room – I know that looking at it will make them smile every single time!

Out of Office! | Ridgewood photographer

It’s been a LONG winter and I am definitely in need of a vacation.  Good thing that I am going on vacation today!  This is the first time we are taking Mia and Alexa to Europe.. people say that at 6 they might be a bit young but I need to make sure that they will be great travelers so that’s why they re starting early:)  So Live Love Laugh Photos will be closed for the next day days – I will be back ‘in the office’ on Monday April 14.

And in the meantime here are a few images I took over the last 3 years during our kids-free trips!

Bringing clients to tears (in a good way!) | Ridgewood studio photographer

I loved meeting and photographing these guys at my studio in Ridgewood recently.  They came in for a Simplicity Session and as you could see – they had a blast.  Upon seeing their images at the viewing/ordering session their Mom got teary-eyed because she said every image captured here kids perfectly!  And in my world that’s the highest compliment a children photographer can receive from a client!

They already scheduled a Signature family session for May – excited that I will get to capture all four of  them soon!

Lifestyle newborn family session in Ridgewood | ridgewood family photographer

I wanted to share a few images from a newborn/family session I had in Ridgewood recently.  We started in my studio in downtown Ridgewood with a few images of this brand new baby boy and his parents – I cannot say enough how great the light is there – even on grey and rainy days (such as the day of the session!).   And then we headed over to this family’s Ridgewood home for lifestyle family images that I am known for.  When my local clients (from Ridgewood, Wyckoff, Glen Rock, Allendale, Paramus) book a newborn session with me they can choose between either having the session at my natural light photography studio in Ridgewood, at their home OR we can do a combination and get some studio shots as well as lifestyle home shoots.   This way they get the best of worth worlds!  And I don’t know any other newborn photographers in Ridgewood or this area who offer this cool option!

I am known for lifestyle family sessions and most of my clients want very natural family images, which is what this family wanted.  And that’s exactly what I captured for them!
