The Creativity Project | “Soft Focus”

I cannot lie – this was a pretty difficult theme for this month’s Creativity Project. I don’t even know if my interpretation is spot on but I tried. lol Since I’m in my final weeks of pregnancy, I haven’t been able to take out my camera as much as I want to so I decided to search my archives.

The Creativity Project | “Red”

It’s a new year for us at The Creativity Project and I’m so excited about the upcoming themes for this year. This month’s theme is “Red” and I decided to go back into my archives. When I thought of “Red” I immediately thought back to a fun day with three little boys having fun on a “red” wagon.

“Some days we skip along, pulling our wagons with great confidence-
So full of energy that the load seems light.
Some days the load seems heavy and we need someone to help us pull our wagons over the bumps in the road.
Some days we are just tired.
We sit in our wagons and let someone else pull us along for a while.
And some days it’s kind of nice to share our little red wagons with a friend.
As you think about yesterday, and make plays for tomorrow,
keep in mind that there will be times when you can help pull someone’s little red wagon for a while.
After all, helping to pull each other’s little red wagons is what makes it possible to face the challenges the day brings.” – Dr. Jean

The Creativity Project | “Family”

I’ve been questioning what would be the best way to publicize this special announcement on my blog and photography page and I figured out that my favorite Photography Circle would be the best way.

This month’s theme at The Creativity Project is Family and I’m happy to announce that after 8 years of marriage, I’m starting a family of my own!!!

Guess what – it’s a boy!! Being a photographer, I always said that I would like to document as much as I can of my pregnancy if and when I got pregnant. I did announcement photos and I was really looking forward to gender reveal photos. The original plan was to put balloons in a box at a Christmas tree farm but last Saturday it was pouring. Rachel, my assistant, quickly came up with a “Plan B” to use glitter and I absolutely love the way it came out. She also took these photos.

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.
