Happy Father's Day

I love hearing the little voices calling 'Daddy! Dadda!' and watching the children climb on my husband as if he were a big mountain, or being able to get what they want when mommy isn't around.

There is definitely a soft spot for them in his heart and as much as he tries to deny it, the kids have him wrapped around their fingers. 

And that is the thing about Fathers!
They might seem tough and strong but underneath it all, they are softies when it comes to the little ones.
Dads are our first loves, big teddy bears to hug (nothing cozier than daddy's lap), and our biggest supporters!
They are here to guide us through life and to push us to try over again. Because they believe in us and love us unconditionally!

Happy Father's Day to this wonderful man with whom I get to share the journey of parenthood. 
Your love for our children, your devotion and support is what makes me fall in love with you over and over again! Samantha and Jack are so lucky to call you their daddy! 

And a very Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there!
But most importantly, I would like to wish a wonderful day to my Dad who might be oceans away but is always in my thoughts!

Kocham Cię, Tato!

A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back
nor a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.

The Oyster Point Hotel Wedding • New Jersey Photographer

It must have been one of the rainiest days this spring! 
There was no break in the clouds whatsoever! But that did not stop this beautiful couple from having the best time of their lives as they became husband and wife. 
I wondered if they even noticed the hurricane-like weather looking as happy as they did. Smiles never left their faces!

A few weeks ago I met with Mekina Saylor, with whom I had the pleasure of photographing Amy + Michael's wedding, at The Oyster Point Hotel in Red Bank, New Jersey.
After documenting the couple getting ready we headed to The Orthodox Christian Church of Annunciation for their ceremony. 
One of my favorite parts of every wedding is watching the groom's reaction as he sees his bride for the first time. It must be one of the most genuine moments. Their love and admiration - so undeniable!

After the ceremony, Amy and Michael along with their wedding party, went on a trolley ride to Asbury Park for a few portraits, followed by their wedding reception at The Oyster Point Hotel.

The Colby Family • Plymouth, Massachusetts • Family Photography

We spent this Memorial Day weekend traveling up north to visit our friends in Plymouth, MA.

Steve and I met Andrea and Sean while on our 'babymoon' cruise to Bermuda.
Despite the distance- we live in NJ, they in MA - we were able to keep in touch {thanks to Facebook 👍🏻} and see each other from time to time.

We were super excited to spend a few days with them, catch up over a glass of wine and let our children play together. It was such a fun weekend and we are so grateful for their hospitality!

Of course, I could not leave without a few family shots on a nearby beach!

Megan + Andrew's English Manor Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Megan and Andrew's wedding with Laura Lee Photography at The English Manor in Ocean Township, NJ.

After a Catholic ceremony at Megan's church of St. Rose in Belmar, NJ, we headed to the beach for formal portraits of the newlyweds and their wedding party.

I have never met a happier couple! Huge smiles would not leave their faces the entire day!
It was undeniable how much they loved each other and how excited they were to be married.

Their reception at The English Manor was just as beautiful and fun as the whole day! 
I was so happy to be part of their celebration!

The Segarra Family Cherry Blossoms Session • New Jersey Family Photographer

Ahh, the cherry blossoms! 
I am always looking forward to spring for many obvious reasons but mainly to be able to photograph my families and couples surrounded by the pink gorgeousness!

I loved spending one of the afternoons with The Segarra Family at a local park that was overflowing with these beautiful blossoms.

But, how cute is this trio?!

Magdalena + Gary • Maternity Session • New Jersey Photographer

It is one of those sessions that fill my heart with so much happiness.
I absolutely love photographing expecting couples! There is nothing more beautiful than a mommy-to-be and the loving eyes of her husband.

I met with Magdalena and Gary on an exceptionally warm spring afternoon at one of the most gorgeous parks.

Cross Estate Gardens is where they had their wedding pictures taken a little over two years ago and were excited to come back there to capture this special time in their lives.
Their baby girl is due this June and it is hard to miss how much she is loved already!

Congratulations, Maggie and Gary!
It was such an honor and pleasure to photograph these moments for you.
