I was first contacted by the children in this family over a 1 1/2 years ago!  They wanted to purchase a family session as gift for their Mom for the holidays. Love that! This was something a little different for me aside from shooting high school seniors I don’t have a lot of families with older siblings. Well with Sam away at aeronautical school trying to coordinate schedules on his limited breaks became a little bit of a challenge. Finally we were able to squeeze in their session on his last break home. Mom decided that she would like to have a session on the beach, something that was special to her family and a place they all love. I was commissioned to create black and white images for a wall gallery in her home. She wanted a session to remember her children before they were grown and out of the house soon and perhaps starting their own families.  I know she  will treasure these forever.

I just couldn’t resist doing a little animation with the last series of images. Be sure to scroll down and check it out at the end too!




Here is a the design with the  images chosen for her wall gallery to be displayed going up the stairs in her home.  Can’t wait to see them hanging!


And a little animation….

I love shooting high school senior girls!  Since moving to New Jersey I haven’t had the opportunity to do as many as I would have liked because the senior market is very different here.  So when I got a phone call from Danielle’s Mom needing some last minute senior portraits before Danielle graduated and the family moved to Georgia, I jumped at the chance.  Not only does Danielle have a natural beauty about her she also has a sweet and easy going personality.  For her senior session she wanted to create a simple more timeless look and still capture her personality.  A big thanks to her Mom for scouting out this killer location with urban and country backdrops.  Love it!  Congratulations Danielle!

    Roy - Hi Marci,
    Great natural looking senior portraits. The 3 black and whites look awesome side by side!

In April I  had a good client of mine contact me for a special shoot.  They were celebrating their 10 year anniversary…and not just celebrating with a photo session but actually having a full blown ceremony in Puerto Rico.  When they married 10 years ago they never had a formal wedding and so as a part of the celebration Alex wanted to have a full blown destination wedding with a dress for Helen and all!  How awesome is that?  So they asked me to shoot an engagement session (if you will) and to design an event board with the images from our session to have their guests sign at the wedding.  It was so fun getting to work with just the two of them.  Thank you Alex and Helen for allowing me to be a part of your celebration!

    Michael Kormos - These are some great shots! I especially like the series on the path.

Oh my goodness, it’s been a while since my last post! It’s been a busy spring for me already. The weather has been absolutely beautiful and I have been able to shoot outdoors much earlier this year, which leaves less time for blogging.

Here a few of my favorites from a maternity session I did in April.  It was fun spending the evening with this couple celebrating this time in their lives expecting their first child.  We just did their newborn session last week and you can see her sneak peak HERE.

Lots more blog posts coming next week…

We took the kids to see Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax movie last weekend.  It was a super cute movie with a great message and I left inspired.  I actually turned to my husband in the car on the way home and told him that I felt like going home and planting a tree.   A few days passed and ideas began accumulating in my head.  On Thursday with the temperatures in the low 70’s I decided that this was the day we were going to plant our tree.  Now we could have just went out and planted a tree but that would not have been enough for the Yochum’s.  So when Jack headed off to school I had a two hour window to make my Lorax world come to life.  I found these cute candy molds at Michaels to make our Lorax mustaches. I attempted to simulate truffula trees with tissue paper pom poms, however with the beautiful weather we also had some serious wind gusts.  Every time I turned around my truffula trees kept blowing away!  So needless to say it wasn’t exactly how I had envisioned it, but we got our tree planted and had a ton of fun doing it!



And the rest of the story……
