Can I just say how much I love photographing babies ands toddlers at my Ridgewood photography studio? I may be a tiny bit subjective but I think my studio is perfect for that! It’s got great natural light, comfortable furniture, great colored walls (that photograph really well) and yummy snacks – what else can a toddler possibly want? 🙂 And it is very conveniently located in Bergen county – in Ridgewood right on the border with Hohokus! So if you are looking to do a photo session with your baby and toddler somewhere in Bergen county or Northern New Jersey – definitely check it out:)
I loved meeting this sweet two year old boy for his milestone session. He came with his favorite stuffed animal and his book and was a charm to photograph – I adored his mischievous smiles and his pouty lips:) And I think that an acrylic print his Mom ordered with one of his pictures will look absolutely amazing in their home!
You know what they say – “man plans, God Laughs?” That is what happened with this Ridgewood family photo session with one of my oldest clients. For their extended family session (they had family visiting from out of country and wanted to get images of everybody together) we thought that it would be nice to split the session into two: we would start downtown with a session with the immediate family of three – Mom, Dad and one of my favorite girls in the world – G.and and then head over to their house for the extended family portion of a photo shoot. Well that’s not how it worked out (we’ve got a smoked chicken to blame for that!) and instead we ended up photographing four girls downtown. It was definitely a different session from what we had it mind but probably a more fun one – there was lots of hugging and laughing and jumping and ice cream eating:)
and then we did go back to their Ridgewood home for the second part of the photoshoot – and there was more hugging and laughing and even some pool diving:)
I am seriously very lucky to have such amazing clients – who come back to me year after year after year, allow me to watch their kids grow from adorable toddlers to beautiful girls (and boys), who laugh with me and give me hugs when I need them.
My girls ADORE their cousins. Unfortunately we don’t live that close together and they only get to see each other 2 or 3 times a year but boy, do they make those times count! And every time they come up North to New Jersey I drag everyone to my photography studio for a few quite portraits. We did not have much time for this photo session (the baby was crying, I was tired from lack of sleep, everyone was hungry) but I was able to get a few quick images of the girls – I think their personalities do shine through these photos.
What made this photo session super special was 1) we had a new cousin in the pictures and 2)my parents came with us and I was able to get a shot of them with their FIVE granddaughters!
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:)

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!
