Baking with the Family | NJ Family Documentary Photographer

Every year on Christmas and Easter, it's the same thing.  We're making Lamb, either a roast or kabobs, Tsoureki and Baklava.  It's something we all look forward to and have done all my life!  I wanted to document these family traditions during Christmastime with my sisters and nieces, not only so I am in some, but having portraits just isn't the same.  We're not faking it.  I'm in my everyday clothes (which happens to be sweats and a t-shirt), the kids are sitting on tables and counters, we're mixing dough on the floor, my kitchen isn't finished (still being remodeled), nothing about this is perfected..yet somehow it's still perfect!

Snowy Family Photos in Marlboro, NJ

We were feeling super lucky when we discovered SNOW in the forecast for our last family photo session of the season at their home in Marlboro, NJ!  It was the perfect storm (pun intended!) of fun family, gorgeous home, and just the right weather for some holiday photos!

Family Holiday Photos at Home in Toms River

We had another awesome session at this family home on the Toms River... and it was a long time coming!  Mother nature forced us into rescheduling about 5 times, but that couldn't keep them (or us!) down and the perfect day finally came!

Family Photos at Grounds for Sculpture

These guys picked the perfect location for their family holiday photos this year, Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ!  However when we arrived tickets were SOLD OUT!  Some accidents are happy accidents though, and this one was a blessing in disguise!

Family Holiday Mini Session Photos | Monmouth County NJ

Are ya'll ready for some vintage inspired holiday photos?  Here to announce our Family Mini Sessions and we have something super unique in store!  We will be working with a 1971 vintage VW Bus named Poppy!  Poppy will be styled for the winter with blankets, hot cocoa and more!  We aren't over-doing the Christmas theme but we do hope to get a fresh cut tree for the roof rack with more of a Peace, Love and Joy theme using neutral colors.  Just imagine yourselves all cuddled up and cozy with "hot cocoa" for this years Christmas card!  I'm SO excited about this one!  Here are the details!

So excited about this years holiday mini session at a Christmas Tree Farm in New Egypt, NJ!  Embrace the season, get your scarves out, maybe even cut down your tree while you're at it, all while getting updated photos of your family for your walls or holiday cards.  We are also allowing extended family to join in on this one, however, 2 appointments will be needed to accommodate larger groups.  Check out last year's fall mini sessions...can we top that one?!  Details below!
