A Purple Newborn Session in Staten Island, New York

I absolutely adore this little one's purple and grey nursery! Fitting with the theme we photographed her in a basket with a purple knit blanket made especially for her by a family member. And how cute and tiny does she look next to her father's firemans helmet?! Adorable!

A Hoboken, New Jersey Maternity and Family Portrait Session

I love photographing maternity sessions. Add a two year old to the mix and you have double the fun! I spent the afternoon with this lovely family of three (soon to be four!) at the pier in Hoboken, New Jersey. It was such a joy to capture this very special moment in their lives.

A Hoboken Family Portrait Session at Pier C

I first photographed this little one when she was just a few days old. Four family portrait sessions later it is hard to believe she is already one-year old! Even though it was a cold winter day we were still able to get out to Pier C in Hoboken, New Jersey. The weather did not bother this toddler since she was always on the move.

A Rustic Woodland Wintry First Birthday Party at the Pluckemin Inn in Bedminster, New Jersey

Oliver's first birthday party took place at the Pluckemin Inn in Bedminester, NJ. The venue has a lovely historic feel as it was modeled after a colonial era farm house. It was the perfect setting for a wintry woodland rustic themed party. 

Cana's Miracle did an amazing job creating all of the beautiful details. The highlight of the party was definitely the dessert table, decorated with silvery white flowers and pine cones mixed with mercury glass candle holders which evoked the winter season. After the birthday boy blew out his candle, guests enjoyed the darling owl themed cake, mini cupcakes and pie pops all baked by Jennifer Choi Desserts

No one went home empty handed. At the end of the day each guest received a gift bag filled with all of the ingredients necessary to make s'mores. How fun? The adorable birthday boy, looking dapper in a navy blue sweater and plaid shirt, seemed to have a wonderful time!
