Candid Family Portraits – NJ Candid Family Portrait Photography

Normally, I don’t shoot family portraits aside from wedding days. It’s not the I don’t like them, but since I don’t shoot them, people never ask me. But when they do ask, I say: sure, but…I have to warn you that I don’t take the typical family portraits. What do I mean? Well, after one or two photos of you looking at the camera, I move on. Since Isabella was born, I have been documenting our lives together. As a newborn, I took lots and lots of portraits of her. I played doll with her, and I dressed her in every cute outfit I found…pink bow on her head and all. But once she started walking, she taught me to be a different kind of family photographer. Isabella taught me to capture the little moments, the laugher, the joy. The photos where she is having fun, and show the silliness of our family became my favorite photos, and my most cherish possession.

In a way, she re-programmend me, and I like it this way. So when Rachel asked me to take photos of her family, I gave her my usual warning, she still agreed, and I was glad. We really had a great time taking photos of this beautiful family. Ellie is absolutely adorable, and the camera LOVES her.

Photographing the photographer

Call me silly, but before any photo session, I get nervous. I swear I have butterflies in my stomach. I sweat, and I have doubts. I wonder if the photos I’m taking the best representation of my subject? Will my subject like that representation? Now, multiply that times ten when I have to take headshots of a photographer. Luckily for me, my photographer friends are pure awesomeness, and they play along. They allow to be put out of their comfort zone, and we end up having a good time.

Here are a few frames I took of my friend Jennifer Starr from Shutter Starr photography. We drove to Princeton because Jenn was taking photos of Isabella – that is the story of another post- and the photographer became the subject.

Girl Jumping - New Jersey Child Photography

To childhood friendships and second generations – Photo of the week

Once upon a time, there were two four year old girls who met in Kindergarden. During the next thirteen years, these two girls became inseparable as they went through elementary, junior high and high school together. We were like peas and carrots; peanut butter and jelly. We were both only child, and we understood each other even when we didn’t say a word, although most of the time, we couldn’t stop talking. Our conversations were about nothing and everything. There were always interesting and never boring. Both our moms pushed us to reach for the stars, and we believed there was nothing we couldn’t do if we put our minds, hearts and souls and worked hard towards it.

A few weeks ago, I saw my dear friend Alicia after sooooo many years, emphasis in many years, and I can’t say how happy that made me. An added special bonus was to see her daughter Arianita and my Isabella together. It reminded me of us, of that special time in our lives.

This photo of Arianita represents all of that. It captures that innocence of our childhood friendship; our freedom; our happiness, that desire to reach for the stars and our Joie de Vivre.

Maternity Session – Kisha

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kisha of Pure Ambiance for over a year now, and it’s been a blast working with her in some many weddings and some awesome events. Over the months, I’ve seen her belly grow, and I’ve seen her wobble. I’ve followed her tweets with her cravings, and the not so good days. In all, it’s been nice to follow her pregnancy, and it was even better to photograph her maternity session, and to capture her joy and that of her family.

Today, I’m thrilled to hear that she is finally in labor now… so I thought it would be a great opportunity to post a photo of her recent maternity photography session. Congratulations Kisha!!!!

Cycle of Life – Olivia Maternity Photos

One of the joys of being a photographer is to be able to capture special moments in a person’s life. Last year, I photographed Olivia and Carlo’s New Year’s wedding. Today, I’m acting all maternity photographer taking Olivia’s maternity photos, and I feel double the joy as I’m capturing a new chapter in their lives.

In a few weeks, they will welcome a beautiful baby girl, who by the way will have one of the most beautiful names, and I can’t wait to photograph their little angel. I think by that time, I can call myself the official family photographer!!

You look soooo pretty my dear Olivia!!!

Tomyka Family Portraits

Once upon a time, there was a girl who was working seven days a week, fourteen hours a day, for several months straight. After shooting a much anticipated and great event, she stayed up until 3AM. The next day, while she prepared for a family portrait for a friend, this girl got a migraine…. and I mean a category 5 migraine. So this girl told her husband she would lay down for 5 minutes…. only 5 minutes, and then wake me up… to thought, maybe the combination of Tylenol and a miracle would take the pain away….. and then she had a blackout…..

If you guessed I was the girl, you are 110% correct. If you are wondering what happened to that poor girl, thank you very much for thinking of me. If not, what’s wrong with you?

Going on with my story. The 5 minutes turned into many more minutes, and my wonderful husband didn’t wake me up. Instead he took our friend and her family to the place I had planned, and he took the pictures himself.

After my internal alarm woke me up, I felt like in a parallel universe. If you tell me that I died, I believe you. The pain had gone away, and I felt aware of everything. OK, not in the same way as Limitless…. (if you haven’t seen the movie, you should), but OMG, what did just happen to me. What time is it? What year is this? Ok, the last part was an exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

I called out friend, no answer. I called Danny, no answer. Why do we have to have a rule to turn our cell phones off when we are shooting? Ok, so he probably went on without me. OMG, would my friend think that I didn’t want to shoot her pictures, I surely hope not.

But then I talked to her… and being the great person she is, she understood. The best part of all, I knew she was in good hands. Danny is such a great photographer, you know that rare breed of photographer/ cinematographer, best of both worlds. In the end, everything worked, Danny photographed Tomyka and her beautiful family, and the photos came out great.

Tomyka is the owner of UMYK Designs, and she makes a wide range of hand crafted products. If you need custom aisle runners, cake toppers, or hand painted signs definitely check her out. And for the girls who like a little bling, Tomyka does hand crafted Swarovski Crystal iphone cases.
