There’s so much value in a mother/daughter relationship and for these two, not even a few time zones could affect that value. Loree flew in to see her daughter and enjoy a weekend of girly things. Between their packed weekend of shopping in quaint towns, seeing a fantastic show at Count Basie, and seeing what Christie has been up to recently, we were able to catch up and have a awesome session in Red Bank, and God blessed us by stopping the rain just in time for the shoot to begin.
Last weekend I was able to catch up with some old friends in Central Park to celebrate their engagement. Tim proposed to Emily in Central Park on New Year’s Eve and threw her a surprise party to follow (which I shared photographs from already). We met up in the same place to begin a whirlwind Saturday afternoon exploring the Park and taking photographs along the way to document the love these two have together.
I met Amber and Jordan separately but around the same time at college. Amber and I shared in Honors Seminar for two years, Jordan and I shared many classes having the same major. Jordan proposed to Amber in Italy (major props on that one) while on a winterim trip with our school and I could not wait to celebrate with them when they returned. It took awhile but as the sun finally began to shine again I met the couple at Piermont Pier and we shared stories, looked forward to the wedding, and captured the love that these two truly have for one another.
Living near the Jersey Shore has really changed my perspective of Hurricane Sandy. If this happened a year ago, I would’ve been sad, but not really experienced the damage. Now that I live in Monmouth County, all it takes is a ten minute drive and I see the destruction. It’s overwhelming. So recently, I have been exploring with my Husband. We recently drove through the highlands area and saw a house that was missing some of it, we then moved on to sea bright where the sand dunes are higher than houses.
On Sunday we went to Ocean Grove, our favorite spot for lunch and an afternoon off, only this time, there was a different feel as we walked on the sand dunes, saw the fishing pier broken, and a boardwalk that no longer existed.
Kerri was one of the first people I met when I came to Nyack College. Not long after I met Jordan through my department events. Who would have ever imagined 2 years later they would be engaged and three years later married! I was so blessed to be a part of their day and loved every minute of it. Congratulations Jordan and Kerri! May God bless your marriage and thank you again for letting me be a part of it.
Claire and Gerard said “I do” a year ago (Monday). It was a lot of fun to see the love these two have for each other after a year of marriage. We spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon around Ocean Grove NJ, soaking in the sites of the Great Auditorium, the historic houses, the beautiful beaches, and the quaint main street shops. I had such a great time with such great friends and am so excited be able to share some of these with you.
Yesterday, was my sister-in-law’s one year wedding anniversary. I decided to go back to the wedding photos I took for them last year and run them through lightroom since I didn’t have it last year. It was a really fun wedding and I had a great time getting to know them both more. Happy Anniversary Becky and Ben!
Honestly what is better than getting to go out with two really goofy best friends? My brother claimed he needed pictures with his best friend and I hadn’t had a shoot in awhile so a few weeks back (before my wedding!) I grabbed the two and took them to the Ramapo Reservation in Mahwah, a site I had been wanting to check out for photography shoots in the future. It was a lot of fun. and seriously, these kids will crack you up.

Last Saturday my twin sister graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology. It is crazy to think she has a degree but it is awesome as well. The weather was gorgeous, she was gorgeous, and I loved snapping some shots for her and my family.
While working on my photography final, I got to run around with an adorable 2 1/2 year old. I’ve known Annie Grace since she was born, as in I met her hours after she was born. It’s so much fun to watch her grow up. This was such a fun shoot for me to have the opportunity to do.
