welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

I’ve got this love/hate relationship with snow. On the one hand, it creates a mess, can be hard to travel in, is cold, and stinks to shovel. On the other hand, it can be really pretty and create some bonafide photographic magic. Snow in New Jersey can be particularly fickle. We go entire years with […]

Oh, you guys! This little one was so. cute. When Shannon came to me with her ideas for this session, I was all in. I hadn’t had the opportunity to do a milk bath session before, and it was made even more special by the fact that we were actually able to use Shannon’s breastmilk! […]

Fun fact: Early in my photography career, I rarely shot in Spring Lake. I always used to wonder where those beautiful bridges were when I saw wedding photos that were being shared around, and I didn’t have a clue where to look for them. Eventually, I stumbled upon the park, and now I consider Spring […]

One of my most favorite things about family portraits at the beach, is that it is always different! You’d think that I might be bored of shooting at the beach (at this point in my career I have done hundreds of sessions and weddings there) – but no. Every single time I’m photographing at the […]

I have to admit, I’ve been falling in love with winter weddings lately! From fur shawls to long lace sleeves, there are so many beautiful ways to have your wedding feel like an elegant winter wonderland. This wedding was extra special, because Jodie is actually the daughter of my favorite high school teacher! I don’t […]

Anytime I blog an engagement session I always get so excited for that couple’s wedding (and not gonna lie, I always end up missing them – so Michaela and Greg, please get married already, thanks). It also doesn’t help that I’m blogging this engagement session as it’s literally about to snow outside. I guess in […]

Did you know that beach family sessions are possible all year long? Even in New Jersey? It can absolutely be chilly – but it’s totally possible! Lavallette is one of my favorite local beaches. There is access to a beautiful boardwalk, and it has so many great locations for family portraits on both the ocean […]

It’s always really special when I get to take photos for a friend (and also fellow photographer). I have known Courtney for a long while now, and I am so lucky to call her a friend. I have enjoyed getting to see glimpses of her kids growing up over the years, and I love how […]

Karyn was the actual happiest bride ever. Karyn and Sean went thru so much to be able to have this wedding, and to see it all turn out as amazingly as it did was such a privilege. As I’m sure you can guess, the wedding Karyn and Sean had was not the original wedding they […]

I feel like at any given moment I always have several ideas for photo session swirling around in my head. Lavender had been on my mind for a while – but as it turns out, it’s harder than I anticipated to execute! There are only a handful of lavender fields in New Jersey, and the […]
