Summer nights at the carnival

They were five girls with a fistful of tickets on a perfect July night at the local carnival. The only decisions to be made were which rides and do we go for the cotton candy now or later? When it did come for cotton candy time they were going to give it to us in a bag! We all looked at each other, more or less in shock and then asked for it on a stick. Eating cotton candy out of a bag?!?! Off the stick is far more fun! Thanks to Urban Club clothing for the super cute dresses and tops!

Catie & Lauren R. {Senior Pictures: Kinnelon NJ}

I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love photoshoots with sisters. This one with twins Catie and Lauren was no different. We had originally scheduled this for the winter but ended up rescheduling it to one of those unusual days in early spring when the weather was actually cooperating and it felt like early summer.

It sounds odd but there is almost a rhythm that twins/triplets have with each other. It’s not something I can place my finger on but it’s a give and take that is almost rhythmical. I experienced it with Bri and Johnna last year also. I find it fascinating. There’s a comfort level between them that makes the entire shoot extremely calm.

Wistfully, their mom had said they had their portraits when they were babies and now as seniors before they’re off to college this coming fall to 2 different schools.

When was the last time you were on a swingset?

Happy Spring! I think it’s finally here in northern NJ. It was a long wait and apparently my Paige P. Senior Model Reps had cabin fever:) They saw a brook and the shoes came off.  I set them loose on a playground and, well you can see the results. I couldn’t get them off the swings until I pointed out the monkey bars. Not even kidding. It’s going to be a very good year with these girls and this isn’t even half of them. So. Much. Fun! Get outside and play.

I have a few openings left for this summer. Give me a call to book a summer photoshoot while you can.

Why I laugh and cry at this photoshoot.

This photoshoot has become an annual event where I start out laughing and inevitably end up crying. I pull together “my girls” who I’ve been working with all year long and my new squad for the upcoming year. I love getting them together because, although I never meant for this to happen, the current girls end up doing a little bit of coaching and put the new girls more at ease. It’s always a silly photoshoot that is all about laughing and letting loose. But then we run out of puddles, color powder (more on that in a future post) and the photoshoot ends.  I say goodbye to my class of 2017 girls; as I said, I inevitably end up crying. I’ve watched them change before me whether they realize it or not and  I really do feel like they’re “my girls”. It’s bittersweet, it reminds me that time is fleeting and I think I’m more emotional than ever since I also have my first child going off to college. So to Bri, Johnna, Nicole F., Nicole W., Natalia and Taylor: keep in touch, let me know when you’re leaving for school and come visit me on breaks. xoxo, Paige.

My funny valentines

All it took was a bag full of pink fluffy boas and red kitschy props to get this Valentines photoshoot underway. This is what happened…sweet, sassy, silly.

REINDEER GAMES:{TEEN GIRLS}

All it took was a pickup truck, some packages and a bunch of bundled up senior girls (plus one senior guy to do the heavy lifting & 4 wheel driving) to get our holiday spirit on! If I could gift everyone the laughter and joy that these photoshoots bring me (and hopefully everyone who sees them) this world would be a much happier place. Enjoy some of the silliness or in keeping with the spirit…some of our Reindeer Games!
