A few weeks ago I met this sweet 3 months old and her parents for a Wyckoff family photo session.  Funny coincidence – this family now lives in Upper Saddle River but the Dad lived in California for many years and he called me to arrange for a session when I was on my girls trip in LA!

Most baby sessions my clients hire me for are either newborn sessions or sitting up sessions (at around 8-9 months) or a one year session.  But I have to say that there is something to be said about a three months session – babies are definitely NOT newborns any more – they are a lot more aware, chunkier, smilier and interact a lot more with their parents.  This was the case with this cute baby N. – she was all smiles and laughter playing with her Mom and Dad.  And the parents were absolutely head over heals in love with her – and it was really amazing to witness and to capture.

If you are located in Bergen County and have a newborn, a baby or a toddler and are looking for a family and children photographer reach out to me.  Lena Antaramian has been photographing babies and children since 2008.  You can choose Live Love Laugh Photos Ridgewood photography studio to do baby pictures; or if you prefer you can do your session on location – Lena is available for photo sessions all over Bergen County.

Eight months is such a great age for sitting up photos and I really enjoy photographing squishy adorable babies  at my Bergen County photo studio!  I loved loved loved meeting this sweet little guy – who shared a birthday with my niece (you can see her sitting up pictures here).  Being a Ridgewood family photographer I’ve photographed a lot of babies and kids over the years but I have to say that I’ve never met a guy who went from sleeping to happy in no time at all!  He was sleeping when his Mom brought him to my studio and I was worried that he might be a bit cranky when we woke him up (I am not the happiest camper when people wake me up from a nap).  But my worries were completely unfounded – he opened his eyes and did not stop smiling till the end of the session!

Little G. ‘read’ his books, played with his toys and trucks and chewed on everything in sight – and judging from how happy he looks I think he had a pretty great time at his Ridgewood photo shoot:)

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!
