Morristown, NJ | Portrait Session | Danielle

When it looks like a GIANT soft box outside, you grab your sweet friend and photograph her in the nearest field! This is Danielle, and we’ve been neighbors & best friends since the 2nd grade. She was always my model¬†way back when I started doing photography. Maybe I’ll make a blog post filled with those pictures one day ūüėČ Her laughter is contagious and she always puts together the best outfits!

Enjoy some of my favorites from our spontaneous photo session ūüôā

Morristown, NJ | Portrait Session | Nicole

Nicole and I had such a great time meeting up at two of my favorite spots in Morristown, NJ for her portrait session! Nicole graduated from Whippany Park High School this past June and officially started her college career last Sunday.  How exciting is that?!

Nicole is such a beauty, SO sweet, and full of contagious laughter — which I love! ¬†She had me laughing through out our entire session!¬† I feel like I say nearly¬†every¬†portrait session, but the weather worked out in our favor. ¬†I was almost positive that we were going to have to reschedule our session because of the rain. But, luckily the sun came out and we were able to take some beautiful pictures!

Best of luck in college, Nicole! I’m so excited to see what the future holds for you, and all that you will accomplish during the next four years! Enjoy some of my favorites from our session ūüôā I still have some spots available for my fall mini sessions in October!

Morristown, NJ | Portrait Session | Julie

Julie and I had SO much fun during her portrait session last week! It had rained that entire day, and we were SO thankful that the sun came out for us during golden hour!¬† We met up in Morristown and ventured over to two of my FAVORITE spots! ¬†Our first stop was a beautiful reflecting pond with pretty marble architecture, and then we went over to an incredible old mansion (I’ve been in LOVE with it forever!) located down one of the quaint side streets.

Julie is such a sweetheart and has such a fun, outgoing, & bubbly personality! ¬†She’s a total natural in front of the camera — so relaxed and easy going! And if all of that wasn’t enough, her sense of style is seriously on point. I just loved both of the outfits that she chose for her session!

If you’re interested in having a session like Julie’s (or a session for families, couples, etc.), there are still spots available for my fall mini sessions on October 1st and 2nd! ¬†Click HERE to find out more!

Enjoy some of my favorites ūüôā

Spring Lake | Portrait Session | Stephanie

Oh, you guys!!! I am SO excited to share this!¬†If only EVERY photo session could be at the beach… that would make me the happiest little photographer ever! ¬†A couple of nights ago, I posted a sneak peek of Stephanie’s session and said¬†that I was almost¬†positive that I had photographed a mermaid. ¬†And I wasn’t kidding! ¬†Well…. only kind of ūüôā

Stephanie and I drove down to Spring Lake, NJ this past Sunday evening for her portrait session down by the ocean. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! We arrived around golden hour, the weather was beautiful, and the ocean was SO warm…. which I only know because a nice sized waved crashed into my lower half while we were taking photos, haha! My camera stayed dry, so it was totally worth it!

Enjoy some of my favorites!

NJ | Portrait Session | Avanti

This¬†beautiful lady is Avanti, and she’s my best friend of almost TEN years now…. what?! We met during the first week of our freshman year of high school and have been two peas in a pod ever since. ¬†Horses have been Avanti’s passion for as long as I’ve known her. ¬†I can remember a few times back in high school where she’d take¬†us up to the barn that she worked at and we’d spend the whole day there…. and I LOVED it! ¬†There was something so relaxing being at the barn. ¬†That being said, I probably wouldn’t have thought of it that way if I was actually working while I was there like she was, haha!

When we went off to college, Avanti majored in Equine Studies and went on to work at a beeeeautiful barn up in northern New Jersey. ¬†Literally the most perfect location for photos. ¬†I thought it would have been SO fun to do a shoot with Avanti wearing a long flowing dress in a field with all of the horses at sunset! ¬†So, we asked her boss if it would be ok to use her property for a couple of hours, and then we made it happen ūüôā Enjoy some of the photos we took from earlier last week! ¬†They’re some of my absolute favorites!

Robert’s Garden | Kristina | Portrait Session

Last week, Kristina and I met at Robert’s Garden Park in Morris Plains to grab some portraits of her before she heads off to her first year of college — such an exciting time! There wasn’t a cloud in the sky that ENTIRE day until golden hour rolled around…. and that’s when it looked like the sky was going to open up. ¬†Luckily it held out until we were finished and back in our cars!

Even though we had gray skies, it didn’t matter — Kristina is seriously such a beauty and she has a personality to match! ¬†And if that wasn’t enough, she’s a total natural in front of the camera. Scroll down, you’ll see what I mean! Best of luck in college, Kristina!

Princeton University | Portrait Session | Kelly

It’s always such an honor when another photographer asks if you’d take their picture, and I was so happy when Kelly asked me! ¬†Kelly and I met back in December at a photography workshop (Hope Taylor Education) down in Virginia…. ¬†funny enough, we only live about an hour away from each other! ¬†Kelly was going through a rebrand and creating a BRAND new website and wanted some head shots to go with her new look. ¬†We met up at Princeton University (ENDLESS photo opportunities) last month and¬†went to work! ¬†I wish I could say that it was the most gorgeous day of the year…. but it wasn’t. ¬†Haha! ¬†We picked the ONE day that week where thunderstorms and rain were in the forecast. ¬†BUT, the weather ending up holding out for us AND the sun came out for a little while during golden hour. ¬†Woohoo!

Here are some of my favorites. ¬†Kelly is such a beauty! ¬†Click HERE to take a look at her amazing new website…. I’m obsessed.

Happy Thursday ūüôā
