Ali R. {Senior Portraits: Morris County NJ}

Behind my lens I see endless possibilities, light from within, new beginnings and infinite hope. It is such a special time in their lives with Ali being no different. She’s strong and feminine with a giggle that will get you going. I love making these girls feel like they’re the only one in the world and to watch them quite literally  float into the joy of the moment. Take a look…

A win/win gift list.

Senior photoshoot with girls loading truck with holiday gifts

Oops! I woke up yesterday morning, realized it was Thursday and completely forgot to post this blog. ‘Tis the season! Being that it’s December 1st maybe it was serendipity that I’m a day late. Whether I want to face it or not, it’s gifting season. At this time of year I usually post gift suggestions recommended by my Senior Model Reps. This year I’m changing it up a little bit. I’ve listed some of my favorite picks for gifts that I know will appeal to your girls AND the purchase will support efforts against Human Trafficking or help empower women. I have nieces and a daughter in that age range so I’m checking off my list pretty quickly. I love the idea of a gift that’s win:win. I hope you find a few things your favorite teen will love. Stay sane and breathe!

Katie B. {Senior Pictures: Kinnelon, NJ}

Katie is a pint sized dynamo who, when she isn’t talking, she’s laughing and vice a versa. During the entire photoshoot she kept telling me that she’s an athlete (now playing LAX for Quinnipiac) and that this photoshoot was so not her but that she was so excited and having so much fun. It went on and on with her and I could barely keep up but, WOW! she was pure joy. It’s photoshoots like these that I never want to end. Take a look. If I had kept the sound on, honestly you would hear nothing but laughter or Katie talking. She is the best!

Isabella C. {Senior Portraits, Northern NJ}

She was a little indecisive and quiet during our styling consultation. The day of the photoshoot she arrived after having a bit of a rough day. We settled in and Marcela, my hair and makeup artist, went to work. Gradually the energy started shifting and by the time Isabella got into her first outfit there was a whole new person in front of me. Her big huge smile came out and it was all go after that. We did our thing, changed in and out of outfits, twirled, laughed and laughed some more. In the process we got some amazing shots of her feeling perfect.

Rainy Day Photoshoot

We had this group photoshoot planned for months. By luck, it happened to fall on the first day it had rained in what must have been at least a month of blue sky sunny days. I’m not talking drizzle. It flat out poured! We made the best of it and ended up having a lot of fun. Take a look.

I think I love these kind of photoshoots because they bring out the kid in all of us. There’s another rainy day photoshoot here .

What you need to know about campus social life series. {8}

Nicole goes to Tulane. I know she takes her studies very seriously and loves to have fun. She manages to strike a balance.

HOW I MET MY CLOSEST FRIENDS: Orientation and in the beginning everyone was super open to meeting new people! Tulane also has a riverboat cruise that I met some of my current best friends because we were the only ones who actually danced on the dance floor!

DORM ADVICE: Be friendly with your floor, y’all are living together all year. It’s nice to have friends in your building! Get a comfy rug bc rooms are so small, seating is very limited, everyone ends up lying around on the beds and ground when hanging out.

DORM, GREEK, OTHER: The Boot is most popular (and 18+) and Greek.

A TYPICAL WEEKEND IS: Going to the Fly Park (on the Mississippi River); tailgates during football season; nights at the boot or frat parties (sororities also have a lot of mixers and date parties); Sundays dedicated to the library.

LATE NIGHT CRAVING: Boot pizza and Canes.

CLUBS: I’m in Chi Omega sorority, Delta Sigma Pi (business frat) and do a lot of volunteering because Tulane has a huge emphasis on community service my favorite was at an animal shelter.

MOST FUN CAMPUS TRADITION: Mardi Gras

FAVORITE DISCOVERY ON/OFF CAMPUS: Hillel has great food on campus and off campus just the entire city of New Orleans is amazing but love the Fly and Magazine Street.

STUDY TIP: As soon as you get your syllabus fill out everything in a planner.

SECRET STUDY SPOT: I’m a library kind of girl but also some really cool coffee shops near campus, Rue de la Course is my favorite. Pro tip during finals…when Howie Tulane Library is packed, Loyola’s is always way less full and we have access to it.

BEST CUP OF COFFEE: Rue de la Course.

MOST RECENT GOOGLE SEARCH: Zulu (Mardi Gras parade)

MOST USED APP: Instagram

HOMESICKNESS: Super easy to keep in touch – FaceTime and phone calls.

SKYPE OF FACETIME: Facetime
