All it took was a few American flags, a wide open field and a sun-kissed summer evening to get our photoshoot underway. From all of “my” freespirits to yours… have a happy Fourth of July!
Go to my Youtube channel to see the video from this photoshoot. Happy Fourth!
We have a tradition in our family of sharing 4 happy things at the end of the day. We go around in our little circle of 4 and talk about the good things that happened during the day. In that spirit, after seeing these images I want to share my 3 happy things from last week. These are the last couple of photographs from the last senior photoshoot of last week.
- Having an assistant, Taylor (left) who loves photography as much as I do and absorbs every single thing I say.
- Working with senior girls like Dezi (center) who are fun, quirky and make me laugh. They remind me every single day how much I love working with this age.
- For being able to share my passion with my daughter (right) and to show her how it is possible to make work play.
What are your happy things for the day?
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.
I’d be surprised if you didn’t know someone who has been touched by breast cancer. Help fight back. For every senior photoshoot that is booked and takes place in October a $100 donation will be made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Fight back. Knock it out. Book it!

There’s nothing I love better than creating and photographing a magazine style shoot. I called in a few of my senior model reps, pulled some amazing clothes from Urban Club, handmade jewelry from Kim Satin Jewelry and called on my favorite HMUAs, Miranda and Michelle to do a fun back to school shoot. We shot this at Ridgewood High School and as always I scouted it out on the same day/time that I would be having the shoot. It was perfect, quiet, no distractions. One week later we pulled into the parking lot and found ourselves among a parade of yellow school buses dropping teams off, a soccer game in front of the bleachers and practices on another field. To say it was buzzing is an understatement! I looked at the girls and said let’s try and look for a quiet place and they said why, we’ll go anywhere you want. They were totally cool with it! Now granted, at this point they’ve been photographed by me a few times but still! They were total pros. We just did our thing. They felt great, looked great and had this unbelievable confidence. That confidence is going to be with them for the rest of their lives. Senior pictures are not just about being pretty.

When you book a photoshoot with me we have a pre-shoot consultation not only to go over outfits but to get to know each other. This is when I usually find out if you have a passion and we talk about how we can incorporate that into your photoshoot.Nicole is pure sunshine. It’s rare that she doesn’t have this light up the world smile on her face.She’s a cheerleader and it was important to her mom that she had a few shots of Nicole in her cheer outfit. I’m paraphrasing but in her mom’s words, the last 12 years have been spent absorbed in cheer, it would be great to get a couple of nice shots.I think we can all relate!
I teasingly asked, can you do tricks?
Nicole went on to give me a list starting with a back flip. That’s what I get for asking! Cheerleading tricks aside…We had her spinning, laying in the sand and generally doing what we do best, having fun and capturing some incredibly natural, expressive images.
Go check out Nicole’s video from her photoshoot. It’s on my new website! Lauren’s passion was riding her horse JD. Take a look…
