Our families have become close over the past year so I was excited when they asked me to take some photos. It was such a beautiful day - not too cold, the sun was shining, and the colors were perfect! These three make such a cute family - you can really feel how much they love each other.
I had a blast photographing this little peanut for her first birthday! Cake smash sessions have to be one of my favorite - because for a moment, they get to just have fun and get cake every where - how could you not love that?! I love the theme that her parents chose - Winter ONEderland! I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I did taking them. Happy First Birthday Maddie!
I was so excited when this album arrived! It was a gift for my husband but I wanted to show my loveys some of our products. There are numerous possibilities with the cover, anything from luxurious leathers to woven cloths. The albums are produced using archival inks and acid free papers so they are created to last! The pages are handcrafted using a 1/4" thick moisture resistant, acid free, warp-free boards. Our albums are such a great way to remember those precious moments for years to come!
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!
Sarah + Alex :: Married :: Stroudsmoore Inn, PA :: NJ Lifestyle Photographer :: Krista Marie Photography
Sarah and Alex got married on a gorgeous day in April at the Stroudsmoor Inn in Stroudsburg, PA. When they told me where their wedding was going to be in the Poconos - I instantly knew this was going to be one of my favorite weddings to photograph! It was very elegant but you couldn't get away from those rustic details. The weather could not have been more perfect!
Sarah looked stunning in her gown and Alex was very dapper in his tuxedo. You could just feel the love between these two! Their ceremony was overlooking the mountains and the view was breathtaking. The couple danced and talked the day away with friends and family. I wish you two all the happiness this life has to offer. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Rosemblat!
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!
I was contacted by Cori, Christina's sister, to photograph her nephew in February. After a few emails going back and forth, I knew that this was going to be an adorable newborn session. In the weeks leading up to finally meeting Xander and his parents, all I could think about was how I was going to position him, what blankets and props to use, etc. When I arrived at the Grandparent's house, I fell in love with their sun room. There were huge windows letting in the beautiful sunlight! I was able to gather a few items around the house to make the session more personal. He was a little fussy, but we were able to capture some beautiful moments of Xander. Congratulations Christina and Alex on your handsome little boy!
Emilia and I have become close friends over the past few years and when she told me she was expecting, I was so thrilled! At that time, only a few close friends and family knew and I was honored that she wanted to tell me too. Although we were hoping for a snowy session, we decided that we couldn't wait any longer so we met on a chilly but sunny day. This momma-to-be looked radiant! The boys couldn't stop smiling. You could just feel the love and joy in this family. Everyone is so excited for this little girl to make her appearance in the world! Congratulations again and I wish you all the best.
On Monday, October 26th, my parents will be married for 41 years. This was my present to them - they couldn't remember the last time they had photos taken of them! They have taught me so much about marriage whether they knew it or not. Throughout the years, I have learned little things by watching them together or by being in a certain situation with them. I know not every marriage is perfect but with hard work and remembering the love you have for each other - you will always make it together. These two mean the world to me and I love them with all my heart! I wish them many more years of happiness and love.
Here is a collection of my blogs. I hope you all enjoy!
