Holgate, LBI Sunset Maternity Session | Jeannie

This beautiful friend of mine just became a mother of two yesterday morning!  One day before her scheduled delivery, their daughter surprised them with an early appearance.  Even more of a surprise was her gender, as Jeannie was 100% certain that she was having another boy!  I was one of very few who knew what was coming which made it really tough to hold it in while we shot her beautiful maternity photos on the beach and she talked about having a little brother for Noah! :)

Welcome to the world Natalie Ellen!  You're a very lucky girl to have been brought into such a wonderful, loving family.  I can't wait to watch you grow up to be a beautiful woman just like your mama.

At-Home Cooking Engagement Session | Kellie & Jon

We had originally planned to shoot Kellie and Jon's engagement photos outside at a local park, until Mother Nature got in the way.  When there was a forecast of rain and strong winds, I suggested postponing their session to another day, but then Kellie proposed an even better idea.  Since these two enjoy cooking together, she asked if we could do more of a lifestyle e-session while they cooked up something.  I remembered their beautiful kitchen from when we initially met for their wedding consult and knew that it would be the perfect setting!  We had so much fun with this concept, as they put together a pizza, fed each other and enjoyed a little wine.  And I can officially confirm that they are better cooks than me. :)

Barnegat Light Maternity Session | Candace

Just one month shy of the day they would welcome their baby boy, I spent some time on a warm February afternoon capturing some moments of Jeff and Candace, starting at one of my favorite spots on Long Beach Island, the Barnegat Lighthouse.  We explored the area, with a stop at Viking Village before going our separate ways.  Jeff planned out the entire session with me as a ploy to get Candace to her surprise baby shower immediately after, and the plan was a success!  These two were blessed with their son just a couple of weeks ago, and I can't wait to meet him!

Winter Maternity Photos in Lavallette | Pamela

Pamela braved the cold for her maternity photos earlier this year.  I met up with Pam, her husband Rick and their first "child" Mimi on the beaches of Lavallette on a windy winter day in early February.  We hung out on the beach for a little bit before hurrying back into our cars to take the session to her parents' home for some more intimate indoor photos.  These two are welcoming a much-loved baby girl very soon, and I'm so excited for them!
