Deanna + Robert

When I got up this morning I thought for sure we were going to have to cancel Deanna and Rob’s engagement session due to rain. Luckily for us, the weather held out and we got our session in. I met up with Deanna and Rob at Wave Hill gardens in Bronx NY. They spent quite a bit of time here during their courtship and it was obviously a special place for them. Afterwards we headed over to where Deanna and Rob work, a local community center. This is also where they first met 4 years ago, when Deanna was interviewing for a position at the center. Isn’t that cute!? THanks for a fun day guys! I’m really excited about photographing your wedding this October. And thanks for the ice cream Rob, it really hit the spot!

Jessica + Jeff

I met up with Jessica and Jeff at Montclair State University today. They both went to college here, and that’s actually where they met one another. So, it was only fitting to have these two alums revisit the campus for their engagement session. Jessica and Jeff are such a fun couple, lots of laughter, and up for anything. I had a lot of fun today guys, thank you. I am really looking forward to photographing your wedding in October.

One of the first things I noticed when we got on campus was this sign, which included the word “engage”, so of course I had to get a shot with it!

Hello everyone. I was recently asked to be the featured photographer on photo.net. For those of you that don’t know what photo.net is, it’s an online community of thousands of photographers who submit their work for critique. I have been posting to photo.net for the past several years. It is an outstanding resource for photographers. I was asked several questions about my child photography for the article.

Baby Chase

This is a slightly odd entry due to the fact that after I picked out some photos to post from today’s shoot with Chase, I realized they were all in portrait (vertical) format. Strange huh? Anyway, this is my little buddy Chase. He’s the son of my good friends Nick and Laura. I photographed them at various stages of their pregnancy too (see second photo). And now here is Chase, growing up in leaps and bounds before my very eyes. Chase was so easy to photograph, he sat in one spot making faces at mom and dad for a while. Then we headed up to his crib….literally! Thanks for the fun today little guy.

Jesse Finver

Today was Jesse’s big day, 13 years in the making, his Bar Mitzvah. I could tell Jesse was just a little nervous before the ceremony, but you should have seen him cut loose on the dance floor! This was one fun Bar Mitzvah indeed. Sheri, Jesse’s mom, did an outstanding job with all the planning and details. It’s always a blast photographing energetic kids having fun. Congratulations Jesse! The reception was held at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange.

It took a little bit of work, but we did manage to get a genuine smile from Jesse.

A little practice in the lobby.

The theme of the Bar Mitzvah was World Cup Soccer. There were pennants in the center pieces with Jesse’s name on the end of them. There was a great view of New York City from the Highlawn Pavilion Ballroom.

Jesse had all of his friends come up and help him light the last candle.

Zoe + Nicky

Just a quick entry. Today, Nicky stopped by to play with my daughter Zoe. I had my camera out, so I snapped a few shots. They are SO cute together! Nicky came over wearing his cool Thomas the Tank Engine sweatshirt, and I think Zoe got a little jealous. So, she went up to her room and changed into her Thomas PJ’s.

Nicky had this lolly pop just about the entire time he was here!
