You’re planning for a life event that you’ve likely been anticipating for a long time! My goal as a newborn photographer is to make this one aspect of welcoming your newborn simple. Photography is more than just images – it’s a real part of the arrival of your new little one. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, but you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples and babies feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in memorable images!
I think it’s safe to say that I’m so behind on sharing newborns from the past several months that I don’t think I’ll ever catch up! I met Chase and his family back in the fall when they came to my studio when Chase was just 8 days old! But as you can see, he already had the best hair!! It’s hard to believe this little guy is turning six months later this month. I love seeing him pop up in my Instagram feed and seeing how much he has grown (and how well he styles his hair, ha!). I’m sure when his parents look back at these images they’re so happy they had their littlest guy documented when he was at his smallest!

• Here I am with my husband, Jay! We met thanks to two friends but the first three times we met, we ignored each other. Having completely disregarded each other, we had even forgotten that we had met before. Eventually, we agreed to a double date and it finally clicked between us! • We’ve been married over five years and we live in Howell, NJ, but we love to travel. • We have a beautiful little niece and an adorable little nephew and I was present at both their births. They were two of the most amazing experiences of my life!• I started our business as a children and family photographer and Jay joined the business when we started shooting weddings. I began to photograph newborns in 2011 and began to specialize in newborn photography when our business took off in 2013. • I was a teacher for 14 years before I made the leap into full-time photography. • We believe whole-heartedly that classic never goes out of style and we’re passionate about telling your story in a modern yet timeless way in order to create something that will last a lifetime.
You may remember this sweet family from their studio maternity session earlier this summer. I’ve been photographing this family since Elyse and Mike’s oldest son was just six months old – and he is turning six years old next month! I was just starting out back then and was fortunate enough that Elyse and Mike trusted me to capture their new family for them time and time again. From newborn photos to family photos to holiday photos, I have loved documenting this sweet family, and I was ecstatic when I got to photograph their pregnancy announcement last fall. Of course, I marked Elyse’s due date on my calendar right away and reserved a spot for little Luca’s newborn photos, which we ended up taking on his 12th day of life. Today I get to share a peek into my time with him and his family and I can’t wait for you to see some of the beautiful images we created. We chose neutrals and blues for the session and I love how it turned out! Enjoy!!
I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming.

On the day of his session, we made sure to get a must-have family shot and big brother Wesley just about stole the show. He did great, and you’ll find it hard to believe that he was only two on the day of this session!! I do think we may have promised him a treat that day though =) Enjoy checking out this baby boy newborn session in cream and shades of light blue!
