I have been such a slacker but wanted to post some photos from Fall 2016. As usual, I had a blast and enjoy every memory my camera captures. Remember to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to stay connected throughout the year!

Children, Children, Children!
One of my favorite things to do is capture little moments that will last a lifetime. Child Portraits are my absolute favorite.
I hope you enjoy these child portraits from last fall.

Sports! Who doesn't love being part of a team.
I love to watch my boys play sports. Their passion, dedication, drive and enthusiasm for sports and being a part of a team makes my heart sing. If you are ever looking for us you can pretty much find us at a sports field of some sort. Being that sports are such a big part of our lives, I decided to share some of my favorites from last year. The old guy is in fact my husband. Yes, he is a lacrosse player, too.
I should add that I am in NO way a Sports Photographer - just a Mama with a camera trying to document my boy's fleeting sports moments. Oh, I dread when these days are over.

It is that time of year when I am strapped to my desk, editing High School Senior Portraits until the wee hours of the night. I absolutely love it, as it makes me feel young again. Good Luck to these High School Seniors!

I always think I am going to have time to do everything that I want to do and everything that I actually need to do. Yes, I am an optimist, but reality is that I don't have much time at all between work, boys, house, health and hobbies! I have been meaning to share with my fans some personal photos from the last couple of months and today I am going to do just that.
These photos are of my boys and our crazy busy world. Most of the photos below were not taken with my "good" cameras; just a good ole' iPhone. They say the best camera is the one that you have with you and my iPhone is always in tow.
Enjoy my friends and check back, as I promise to get some new sessions up on the blog very soon.

I just love when I am able to photograph repeat clients. I have been photographing this family for about 6 years! I can't believe it has been that long. Some of my favorite photographs include candids of their children! They have the most amazing eyes and the biggest personalities. It is always a blast! Here are a couple of shots from our recent session.
I recently snapped some photos for a friend at her daughter's Bat Mitzvah. It was an amazing day and I feel so honored that I was asked to capture this very special moment in time!
I have been very busy lately and have not had an opportunity to blog about all the great sessions that have been taking place.
Family and Newborn Sessions are so fun, as it brings me back to the days that I loved the most with my own family. Those days that I thought would go on forever, those days when I thought I was actually busy, those days when my house and children were actually clean (seriously, my house was cleaner and more organized way back then). I loved when my boys were wee little ones and I miss those days so very much.
I use to hate when people would say to me, "it goes by so quickly, enjoy them while you can" - "wait until they are older, then you will know what busy looks like"…….I could go on and on! The funny thing is that I find myself in tears when I say to a client, "enjoy every second, they will be in middle school before you know it!" Seriously, TEARS!
This family has been a favorite of mine for years and once again, I am so happy that they trust me to capture their special moments!
Don't blink, you just might miss something!

Oh, to be young again! I love living vicariously through beautiful, happy, smart young adults! May their future be as bright as their smiles!
I loved this photo session - Especially when the Mom said, "I let them bring their Halloween Costumes!"
Love that they were real and that they let their boys - JUST BE!
