Cait and Emma's Mommy and Me session :: Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, NJ :: NJ Lifestyle Photographer :: Krista Marie Photography
Cait and I became good friends this year and I was so excited when she asked me to take some photos of her and Emma. I didn't want our usual beach or pine background so I was thrilled when we found the gardens. Emma is such a sweet little girl - but has her moments (what 4 year old doesn't!) and I love that I was able to catch both emotions from her!
My bridal shower at Victoria on Main in Toms River, NJ was such a lovely time with friends and family. This bed and breakfast also serves tea with delicious scones, finger sandwiches, and desserts. I love the vintage decor - one of the reasons why I picked this place! My mother and bridesmaids helped make my shower a special day for me. I really felt like a bride and I was able to just relax and have a great time. I am extremely grateful for those that could attend - and I know a few that would be there if it weren't for life getting in the way. Although it was supposed to be a surprise - I figured out right away when a close friend asked me to go to her "belated birthday party" at the place where I wanted my bridal shower to be! I was still excited and loved every minute of the day. I can't thank my mom enough for putting this all together. Also, my bridesmaids went above and beyond to make the day special!
Well its the end of the year and that means that this little girl is another year older! Her birthday is on December 6th and she turned 3 years old. We rescued her when she was about 2 months old - not knowing how much she would change our world! Since she is family, we had to do something special for her. I went all out!! I made pupcakes and a cake, got her a few presents, and set up a mini photo shoot. The day was a bit cloudy but that didn't stop us from having a blast. Once she heard the okay to dig in to the goodies, there was no holding her back. I hope you enjoy these photos just as much as Twix and I taking them.
Get ready for some pawesome faces the birthday girl makes!!

Hey everyone -
I have decided that I wanted to start blogging! How awesome is that?! I have a few topics that I am going to be talking about. Read below to find out :)
Engagements + Weddings - but not just about what I photograph. I am planning my own wedding for next July and I thought what a better way than to help those brides who may not know where to look for ideas or where to even begin! I will update the blog every step of the way - photos will be included!
Contests + Giveaways - who doesn't love them?! When I have anything dealing with this topic I will post about them on my blog. So be on the look out! :)
Photos from sessions - whenever I have a session or wedding, I will post them here. I can't wait for you all to see the amazing photographs taken so I will try my best to have them up as soon as possible.
Daily Life - now I wont post everything about my life here - but I will post the special moments. I want everyone to see what goes on behind the lens and to see who I really am (this will include my furbabies as well - they are a huge part of my life and I want to share them with you guys).
Last but not least - Business - when something awesome happens within Krista Marie Photography - you guys will be the first to know! I have so many amazing things planned and I can't wait to get it all in motion.
If there is something you want me to blog about - just let me know and I will certainly make time for it :)
I hope you all enjoy my blog ideas because I am so excited to be starting this!!
Here is a collection of my blogs. I hope you all enjoy!
