Joanna + Jake's Maternity Session • Frelinghuysen Arboretum • New Jersey Photographer

Maternity sessions are so special! I love the excitement of knowing there is a new life on the way, and I feel so honored to be invited into a family's life during such a wonderful time.

I met with Joanna and Jake, and their two year old daughter, Lily, at Frelinghuysen Arboretum on a Sunday afternoon to capture a few moments of this growing family.

Their baby girl is due in just a few weeks!

Brooke + Alex's Engagement Session • Chester • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Brooke and Alex have quite the history! Their love has been 22 years in the making! Twenty Two Years!

I met with Brooke and Alex at Dickerson School in Chester, NJ, where they met in first grade. Brooke recalls how they would trade each others granola bars and fruit roll-ups back then.
Brooke still has their class picture! 

Throughout elementary, middle and high schools they were be part of the same group of friends but didn't start dating until freshman year.
They went their separate ways to different colleges only to be reunited a year later!
They have been together ever since.

Alex proposed to Brooke on April 8th while taking their pup Roddy for a morning walk on a pier overlooking NYC {how romantic!} Not expecting anything, Brooke was completely shocked.
Their dinner plans that night turned into an engagement celebration with their friends.

Congratulations, Brooke and Alex! I absolutely loved spending an afternoon getting to know you.
I cannot wait to celebrate your big day next October!
