If you know me, you know that family and friends are super duper important to me. Liz and I have been friends since freshman year of high school (many many years), we share lots of funny/happy/sad memories. I love that we can share this memory, her beautiful pregnancy. Her baby boy, Benjamin, was due yesterday but he's not ready to come out! So now we're just waiting for him to make his entrance any day now. We can't wait!
My friend, Chantelle, reached out to me back in February about doing a kid's Easter photo shoot at her house. I didn't hesitate to accept because I knew collaborating with her would result in something beautiful. She's an interior design genius and my photographs wouldn't have come out as beautiful as they did without her help. I loved shooting every single of one these little kiddies, I still can't get over how adorable they are!
I bought some lighting to setup an in home studio since we have an extra room. I decided to try it out on my model, Nathan Arthur. He typically lasts about 30 seconds and then I have to bribe him with candy so he can sit for another 5 seconds. I got a couple good shots though. Now just have to perfect the art of studio lighting!
Two words to describe this shoot, FUN and FREEZING. It's always a little tough to shoot outdoors in the dead of winter, but Nadia and I made it work. We chose to shoot around the Asbury Park Convention Hall since we both love how artsy it is down there. Even though it was the coldest day in January, we laughed so much it didn't matter that my butt was frozen. Nadia is a super creative marketing guru that loves EDM. She will be launching her website/blog this year to showcase her two passions, marketing and music. Can't wait for the launch! In the meantime, you can check out her twitter and instagram @anadia24.
This is a little impromptu shoot I had with my best friend, Michelle, the Yoga Betch. In just a couple of days she will graduate yoga college (it's totally not called that but it sounds cool) and become an official yoga teacher. I'm so excited for my BFFs new journey and wish her all the success in the world. So check out Michelle's website here and book her for a private session!
