My cousin Jen & her beau Landon
Married on October 15, 2012

This post is especially sweet because it's of my bella cousin Jen's wedding.  I went out to LA just to enjoy myself as a guest, but I grabbed some shots throughout the day anyway ~ because I just couldn't help myself!  After all, how could I pass up capturing their 'I do's' in the middle of the Sierra Pelona Mountains? And Jen's magical smile as she made her way towards the man who stole her heart?  I mean, this is the girl that used to say 'ewww' when her mom sat her down in the sandbox to play, but on this day she emanated grace and ease as she swept her beautiful gown across the dust covered rocks on her way to Landon's side.  It was quite a vision!  And so, a few moments from this magical day...

Jen is the kind of girl that the moon follows when she dances

Landon's victory run after he dove into the pool ;)

and then, late that night, we had a little fun...   !!!!

Congratulations lovebirds xx!


Baby Session, NYC

Zachary's First Session!
a Year In Pictures

Oooooooooh, little feet & little toes!  I got to meet Jini & Stephen's newest arrival Zachary when he was only 9 days old ;) He was so alert I couldn't believe it!  His big sister Sienna was already settling into her new role, giving her little brother precious kisses.  Sienna and I are old friends now since I have been photographing her since she was born too!  It was great to see the family again, and I look forward to capturing all of Zachary's milestones in his Year In Pictures sessions to follow xx


Clarks Landing Yatch Club, Point Pleasant NJ

Jennifer & Tyler /weddings

said I DO! on March 30th, 2012

From the moment I stepped into Tyler's house till the last dance, I felt like I was hanging out with friends.  The Farruggio's and the Venice's are some of the coolest people I've had the pleasure of photographing :)  I got to know the Venice's back in 2008 when I photographed Tyler's sister Nicole's wedding (there is a special nod to you guys in the reception section!), and have been looking forward to seeing everyone again since Jenn & Tyler booked me back in the spring of 2011. We had a stellar day, starting with duel coverage at both their parent's houses, and after a beautiful ceremony at St. Denis Church, we headed over to the yacht club in style in a classic Great American Trolley! Jenn & Tyler pulled off a beautifully choreographed first dance (dance lessons from Gabriel from Ballroom Etc.!) to the crooning of Curtis Mayfield's 'So In Love' ~ it was awesome. We ended the night by stealing away to the docks for a few quick minutes to capture the last image of the night...perfect ending to a perfect day. Congratulations you two lovebirds!!!
