Trying to get my year end recaps under 100 images is like trying to squeeze a weeks worth of laundry into a German size laundry machine. Impossible! Can you tell I miss my American laundry machine? This year’s newborn and family sessions brought me all around Germany, New York and New Jersey. Thank you to each and every family for allowing me to freeze just a brief moment in time. Being able to do so brings me so much happiness, knowing that in 10, 15, 20 years you will be able to relive that moment through my work. Below are just SOME of my favorite newborn and family images from 2018.

The Ryland Inn Coach House Wedding | Julia and Teddy

Teddy and Julia were married late Summer at The Coach House at The Ryland Inn. I absolutely adore these two. They are not only the nicest people you will ever meet, but they sure know how to have a great time. I didn’t want to leave their packed reception dance floor, especially when a speciality blonde wig made an appearance! Oh, and let’t not talk about my fan girl status when I found out Julia is a retired Olympic field hockey player. I played field hockey all throughout high school and college and loved catching up with her about it! And, Teddy, well he’s not too shabby at soccer :) I am sure any future children will inherit both of their parent’s incredible athletic genes.

One of the most unique parts about their wedding day is that the amazing ladies at Twisted Willow Flowers incorporated flowers that Julia and her Mom grew at their new flower farm, Griffith Hill Farm. I also loved their personalized ceremony that was officiated by a close friend.

Thank you Julia and Teddy for being so incredibly welcoming on your big day! I think I speak for every guest in attendance… it was one heck of a day! Let’s have a one month anniversary party, ok?

Natirar Mansion Wedding in Gladstone, NJ | Samantha and Carlos

Oh Natirar, you have my heart almost as much as Samantha and Carlos do. Samantha and Carlos are a couple that you instantly fall in love with the moment you meet them. Both with engaging smiles and bubbly personalities, it is hard not to. While I know the food and cocktails were important to this couple that met in the restaurant industry, at the very top of their wedding day list was each other. Warren Country Events helped make the already gorgeous Natirar Mansion Ballroom shine as a backdrop for their reception.  I always knew I could find Samantha and Carlos, together, on the dance floor the ENTIRE evening of their wedding thanks to some help from The Groove Shop. Their dance moves rivaled some of Dancing With the Stars' finest. Seeing them dance all night was a photographer's dream! Oh, and I am pretty sure I fully tested my waterproof mascara during the parent dances and speeches. It was proof that your baby will always be your baby no matter their size or age. I am so thankful to Samantha, Carlos and their families for leaving me with a full heart and belly. May you always dance through life the way you did on your wedding day.
