WHAT TO WEAR? | NEW JERSEY PHOTOGRAPHER

I wanted to share this with you all.  People always ask, well what should I wear to our photo session?  I know I am guilty of that too.  As I look back on the photo sessions I had done of me and my family with other photographers I see I had no idea.  We wore the standard white shirts with either jeans or khaki pants.  Yes, very original.  Well it is time to break out of that funk and expand.  With the weather getting warmer we can finally break out those sandals, summer dresses and shorts.  These what to wear examples were designed by  Ashley and Ali Smith, fellow photogs from Iowa and Idaho.  You can see their page here  http://www.ashleyheimphotography.com and http://www.alismithphotography.com/.  I am grateful to them for sharing these with me.

 

Thanks for looking.

The “S” Kids | New Jersey Child Photographer

I did this session 2 weeks ago and had a blast.  These kids definitely gave me a test but they were awesome.  Miss A who is 4 and Mr. R who is 3 just welcomed a new sister to their home (well 3 months ago) and seem to be adjusting well.  Mom and Dad have been friends of our for years so I was very excited when they asked me to photograph the kids.  We had some melt downs, adults and kids but I couldn’t of asked for a better session.  Miss A and Mr. R were great helpers too and you could see just how much everyone loves one another.  I hope I have more sessions like that.  Here are a few that I liked from the session.  There are quite a bit more but narrowed it down to these.

Miss A

Mr. R

And all 3 of them, even looking :).

 

Thanks for looking.

Ms. P-C | CREATIVE HEADSHOT SESSION | NEW JERSEY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wow, it really has been a long time since I posted.  We’ve been battling sickness’s, traveling, exams and overall life.  For those of you who didn’t know I took the Certified Professional Photographer examination in NYC this past weekend.  I forgot what it was like to study and add 2 kids in the mix (three if you add my husband :)), well it was a little hard to make some time.  But I did and I think I did well on the exam.  This was the first part.  The second part is to submit 20 photographs for critique.  That I hope to do by the end of the summer.

 

Well this lady contacted me for some headshots.  She is an artist, an art teacher at a public elementary school and quite good.  Her work can be fund at www.lauracheney.com.  I had a lot of fun.  I wasn’t sure if I’d make it into her yard though.  She lives right on Deal Lake here in NJ and there is quite a flock of ducks, geese, you name it.  Well 2 of these geese were walking along the sidewalk and pretty much chased me (okay really hissed and started coming towards me).  Below you can see my favorite photos of her.  I just loved her green eyes with reddish hair.  Talented, pretty and a good character, what more can you ask for.
