In this edition of Throw Back Thursday I bring you a summer family photo session that I did with a great family in Wyckoff – enjoy!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you may noticed that I often write how much I loved a certain session or a family… and it may sound redundant when I say that time and time again but it does not make it any less true – I do love my families and the images I create for them.

Case in point is family/session – this was my first family photo shoot with them but I’ve known them for a while –  big sister S. is my Alexa’s best friend and because our kids get along so well we met up with the parents and would not you know – we get along great with them so now we are family friends!  And if that was not perfect enough – they also have a wheaten terrier and you know that since getting our Millie I’ve been obsessed with all things dog related:)

It seems that every parent comes to a photo session worried about their kids ‘behaving’ and I always reassure them that kids just need to be themselves – they don’t need to pose or smile on command at their photo sessions with me.   And once parents let go of their expectations of that their children should be doing we all start to have fun!

At this Wyckoff family photo shoot the parents were relaxed from the very beginning and their mood reflected in their kids.  The kids were being kids – happy, silly, loud, loving and I got to capture just that.  And while every family session I photograph is unique in its own way, what is common among all my family photo sessions is that I capture emotions and love and it makes me so happy to do that!

Looking at these images makes me smile and what’s even more important it made these parents smile:)  At their viewing/ordering session there were so may ‘awwwwws’ and at the end this Mom told me that these photographs were exactly what she wanted captured.  And to me there is no higher praise than that!

I am so grateful for my Ridgewood photo studio during winter months – it is absolutely perfect for newborn and kids sessions especially when it is cold and grey out.  But my first love is on location family photography and by April, after spending months photographing at the studio in the winter I am so excited to be heading outdoors for family sessions.  This session was my first outdoor session of the year and it was glorious!  The trees were starting to bloom, daffodils were out and there was no snow in sight!

I’ve photograph these guys for a few years now and I love seeing them year after year.  Ms. K. was a bit shy at our first session, then less shy a year later and this year all the shyness was gone –  she was holding my hand, ‘helping me’ make her brother laugh, and singing her heart out!  And her brother slowly transformed from an adorable toddler to an equally adorable little boy who was entertaining me with a very interesting rendition of Feliz Navidad – crinkly nose and all:)

I am catching up on blogging a few 2016 sessions that I have not had a chance to blog till now.  Sessions like this holiday studio session with absolutely ADORABLE kiddos!

When I asked their Mom about how she found and chose me to take their holiday pictures she replied that when she asked people for a children photographer in Ridgewood everybody told her to go to Live Love Laugh Photos!  As you can imagine I was thrilled to hear that and loved meeting this dynamic duo.  They came prepared with their PJs – for the cookies and milk part of the photoshoot as well as pretty stylish outfits for the ‘free style’ portion of the shoot.  I have to say once again milk and cookies delivered – kids just love them!  They did have a pretty great time in their ‘fancy’ cloths’ as well:)

Here is more cuteness from holiday mini sessions at my Ridgewood studio.  This family came to Ridgewood for their family session this spring and I loved seeing them again when they came to my Ridgewood photography studio to get pictures for their Christmas cards. Can I just say how much I love the PJs this Mom picked out for her kids?- I bought the same ones for my girls:)
