Whenever a friend asks me to do their photos, I of course feel very honored, but also incredibly nervous. There’s something about knowing a person’s response to your photography [more than just a kind email from a client thanking me] — you know, seeing which photos they use on social media, if they use your photos for a save the date, etc, etc…that makes it all feel a little more personal.

But then, on the other hand, when you get to work with one of your best friends and her husband-to-be during the photoshoot, it is an amazing experience — since you know how strong their love for each other is and how they came to be. That was my experience with one of my dearest friends, Lani, and her fiancé, Kenny, during their Hoboken waterfront engagement shoot.

Aren’t they just darling? Well, we had an hour to work with our sunset lighting [Kenny had to work late], and I put them to work. Here are a few of my favorites from our 60 minute session — yes, it CAN be done!

Lan & Ken wanted to do a few shots by the “150 Years of Hoboken” sign since they live in Hoboken, so we did, right before the sun went completely down — I was a bit worried that they wouldn’t come out, but bump up the ISO and you’re in business! There were too many good ones to choose from, even from an hour of shooting, so I tried to just skim through and pick my favorites. Hope you enjoyed!

They are just too cute. Love them to pieces. Can’t wait to be part of your big day!!

Sisters Jaclyn & Rachael of Lovely Happenings, a new lifestyle workshop events company, hung out with me all day one Sunday back in August. Our goals was to create a number of beautiful scenes for their new website and brand. We cooked, baked, painted, applied lipstick, and did a bunch of other fun and girly things that bring friends together = my heaven. I am very excited for the debut of their new website, but before that happens, figured I’d post some previews of our day…especially because I’m still dreaming about that no-bake oreo cookie pie!

These queens of D-I-Y-ing did not disappoint. So many fun things they made — and such easy subjects at that!

From lemonade in mason jars to glitter paint to flower arrangements to martini shakers, we did it all!

6 Month Portraits | Baby A

It is always fun to watch babies grow — especially when you haven’t seen them since they were itty bitty teeny weeny. That’s why I was so excited to see baby A and her parents for a shoot on Pier A in Hoboken recently. She had just turned 6 months, and so it was great to see how much she’d grown since being only 14 days old at our last [newborn lifestyle] shoot.

Per usual, it was very hard to narrow down my favorites…especially since she is at the perfect, smiley, happy-go-lucky age where you only need one or two frames to get a “good one.” Here are a few of my favorites of this adorable family of three:

Cino6month-151

Cino6month-153

Cino6month-122

Cino6month-164

Cino6month-102 Cino6month-98

Cino6month-186

Cino6month-195

Cino6month-22

Cino6month-247

And one of my favorites [because I love when babies are less than pleased about their photoshoot] — something so ‘organic’ about it:

Cino6month-251

It was a pleasure hanging with this family in Hoboken. Such a little doll baby! Can’t wait to watch this little one grow up!

Business [Lifestyle] Session: Tiffany Pinero Style

IMG_4925-1024x682

While I always adore working with my wonderful families and documenting beautiful wide-eyed babies’ growth and joy during a lifestyle family session, I’ve realized I have come across a new* passion. I add an asterisk because headshots and photosessions with adults for me is nothing new, but recently I have started to have a different approach to showcasing entrepreneurs, business owners, and creatives. The fun is being able to focus on their talents and making it more than your typical headshot…filled with life, style, joy, and creativity: in their element, if you will.

That was exactly the goal of a recent shoot with Tiffany Pinero of Tiffany Pinero Style… a fashion stylist based in Hoboken.

Tiffany Pinero Style

Before the shoot, Tiffany and I discussed her goals and the “look” she was going for. She told me she had a Diana Ross-esque skirt from Mint Market in Hoboken mixed with some neutrals + some pink tuxedo pants later on. Style books + her office + a few luxury shopping bags would be some supporting props, with this brown-eyed beauty as the focus.

Here are a few photos from our shoot:

^ Our backdrop #1, Tiff’s office.

The spread on Tiff’s desk…all of the stylist essentials, of course.

IMG_4855-2

See what I mean about the Diana Ross skirt? Amazing.

IMG_4777

We opted for a natural light setting, since Tiff’s windows are extremely large and flooded with light. Isn’t she a stunner? 

IMG_4833

Next on our list list was a little outdoor fun. Bouquets + Tiff’s style books, and we were in business!

IMG_4994

IMG_4941 IMG_4957 IMG_4958

This gorgeous babe and business woman cannot be stopped! It was such a pleasure to work with her…and literally IMPOSSIBLE to narrow down photos to use in this post. My goal is always to showcase personality and the happiness from within as well as the external… and Tiff was such an easy subject!

IMG_5072

If only we had more time to play; next on Tiff’s list would be a rolling rack of clothing by the waterfront. Oh, it’s on soon, girlfriend :)

If you’re in need of a style session, wardrobe rejuvenation, shopping help, or commercial shoot styling, Tiff is your girl! Check out this beautiful brunette’s website here.

D Family [Birthday Photoshoot]

It was not hard to find some beautiful images to present to you from a recent shoot with this beautiful family. The D Family got dressed up in their Saturday best for a joint sibling birthday party in Hoboken.

We found some beautiful back alleys in Hoboken to photograph a recount of Mrs. D’s amazingly crafty and pinterest-inspired mustache party for her little boys. The party itself took place at the Local Barre downtown {a post coming soon with photographs of those amazing “barretenders”}. It was hard to pick favorites for this blog post because of how many amazing captures we got…all in a 5 foot by 5 foot area in a back alley of our town :)

Enjoy!

 How contagious is their happiness and cuteness? I can’t!

When I met Mariana, I knew that we were going to get some beautiful shots – she is gorgeous! As a local Hoboken/NYC dietician, she was looking for some photographs with fruits & veggies (as cheese-less as possible, no pun intended)  as well as some general portraits for her facebook page and website. Here are a few that I really liked:

Outside of Sobsey’s Produce in Hoboken. We asked if we could move the produce around!

Beautiful peeling stairs, probably not the best thing in the world for the inhabitants of the apartment, but a great backdrop for headshots.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Isn’t she stunning?

I had the pleasure of shooting these beautiful twins’ first professional photographs last weekend. I love when my clients’ homes have beautiful natural light like this, and I’m proud to say no extra lighting or external flash was necessary for this shoot. Love me some window light!

It’s not often that you see a mother of twins looking SO fabulous a mere 2-3 weeks post-delivery. How amazing does she look?

There were so many that I loved – it was hard to choose just a few!

Aren’t they precious? I love lifestyle newborn shoots. The props can be fun, but there is also something so magical about just a mommy, daddy, and their little ones. Don’t you agree?
