Sweet Smiles of Summer!

Just because it’s wedding season doesn’t mean that I’m not spending time with some of my favorite families!!!  This family is no exception! You may remember them from a previous post where I was sure they could have been in an ad for The Gap.  This session was no different!  I am so lucky to be able to work with such amazing families, and whenever one calls me for another shoot, I am humbled and honored that of all the photographers out there, they continue to choose me to capture the most special moments in their lives.  This beautiful baby girl turns one today!!! It’s absolutely amazing how fast time flies being that the last time I saw her she was just a tiny infant.  I absolutely love watching children grow up through the lens! Here are some of my favs from this session!!!

Positively love this family, and love this little lady!!!!! Until next time!!!!!

A Beauty, A Chef and A Baby!

Where do I begin with this beautiful family?!?!?! As fellow Italians, I knew I was going to enjoy photographing them right off the bat!  Their story is beyond sweet…. they met through mutual friends after this beautiful mama was set up with someone else!  Alas, a date or two later and everyone knew that it was actually this beautiful lady and handsome chef that were meant to be.  A beautiful wedding, and wonderful life, and 9 months later and their sweet son Rocco joined them to really complete this beautiful love story.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’m always so humbled and honored when someone chooses me to document such special times in their lives.  I am beyond grateful to this beautiful family for the opportunity and hope to see more of them as this little guy grows up!  Here is a sneak peek of a few favs from their shoot!

Couldn’t help but end on a happy note with that adorable smile!!!!  More to come soon!!!!! xoxo

It couldn’t be a more perfect time to capture the happiest times in peoples lives.  This family was just such a pleasure to work with and get to know.  I felt elated to know that this beautiful mama would finally have some photos with her little girl after 6 months of being the one behind the camera.  This session isn’t even finished yet, but I couldn’t resist sharing these few! ENJOY!!!!

Merry Christmas, Baby!!!!

I can’t believe it!!!! It’s the holidays, and 2012 is coming to an end.  What an AMAZING year!!!  What better way to round up the year then some adorable babies kindly posing for Christmas photos?  Here are a few of my fav’s from my holiday shoots!

Let’s start with this cutie!!!! She’s named after my favorite city in the world, so I knew right off the bat it was bound to be an amazing session!!!


And this next cutie was just too sweet! More will be coming of this little one in another blog post.  She was particularly special since her mom and I had grown up as kids.  I can’t wait to see this beautiful baby in the years to come!


And finally…. my most favorite baby of all time!!!!! My beautiful and perfect nephew…. little does he know, but this is only just the beginning! He’s too wonderful for me not to have my big camera in his face every time I see him.  This little boy is so special to me, there are truly no words.


That last photo is literally one of my most favorite of ALL time!!!!!

I can’t believe it, but it is that time of year!  I’m wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and a very Happy New Year!!!! xoxo

A Beautiful Day With A Beautiful Family

No matter how many photo shoots I do, I’m still always excited and humbled to have the opportunity to capture the most special moments in a family’s life.  This family was no exception.  It was the most beautiful fall day, and these kids were just beyond AWESOME!  Both were so sweet and so much fun!  You could just tell that they were the great kids they were because they had two wonderful parents to guide them.  This was one of my most fun shoots ever!  Here are a few of my absolute favs:

I just could not get enough of this wagon!!!!

And a few of the boys all on their own…. how adorable are they?!?!?

And finally, a few great moments with mom and dad….

And that’s a wrap for another fun shoot!!!! I know it won’t be the last, so stay tuned for more! xoxo
