The Creativity Project | “Feet, Hands, Bodies, Wrinkles, Age, Fun”

Fun with Feet!

This past summer I watched one of my best friends daughter play soccer for the first time. It was so adorable to see these little itty children running around playing [not so great] soccer. Hahaha I especially remember two kids just wanting to talk to each other the whole game. It was sooooooooo cute!

When I thought about this month’s theme, I immediately was brought back to this day.

The Twins Turn One!!!! {Hudson Valley, NJ, NY Event Photographer}

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to photograph a birthday party for a set of twins! It was absolutely adorable and I thought the mother was brilliant to hire me. As a parent, you should be able to just relax, mingle and enjoy your children’s birthday party instead of worrying about getting the photos (unless you love to photograph). Here’s just a peek into their day!

A Super Late Fourth!

Two weeks after the Fourth of July I finally got to celebrate the way everyone else did with fried dough and fireworks! I usually go the Town of Newburgh Fireworks but because of rain, it was rescheduled to the 18th.

On Saturday, the hubby and I went to the Bronx Zoo. I haven’t been there in 8 years so I was really excited to see some animals.

After the fireworks, we decided to get a late night snack – FROYO! We absolutely love Toppings. / The bottom two photos are selfies at the fireworks and at the zoo.

The Creativity Project | “Storytelling”

When I was a little girl, some of my favorite stories that were read to me were fairytales. You know – the ones that had a princess who lived in a castle…yada yada yada. It was always fun to imagine myself ‘once upon a time, in a faraway land living in a castle’ but then I grew up and reality hit. Hahaha. But castles are real and I recently got to spend the night in one!2014-06-09_0004

Sitting on 100 acres in the middle of New Jersey’s Botanical Gardens is The Castle at Skylands Manor in Ringwood, NJ. My husband was so sweet to have thought of such a special gift for me.

This castle has been turned into a bed and breakfast. We only stayed one night but I was so refreshed and renewed the next day when we woke up. It is so relaxing to just sit out and read a book in the middle of fields. I would definitely suggest this cute getaway to anyone who’s interested.

I got to live a childhood dream with my prince charming.

We at The Creativity Project want to see your interpretation as well! Please share your storytelling photos at our Facebook page.
