Happy Halloween everyone! My son loves Halloween. When his elephant costume came in the mail, he tried it on and was in heaven. He jumped in front of our mirror and flipped his head from side to side to watch his ears move. After an hour of playing, I asked him if he was ready to take off his costume. He said a simple, “No.” So of course, we had to do a photo shoot of him as an elephant. I hope you enjoy the shoot as much as we did.

Sometimes you have a session where everything comes together so perfectly. The family was so sweet, loving, gorgeous and perfectly styled. I had such a hard time selecting the photos to show because I wanted to do all of them. Thanks for an amazing session!

I had such a great time capturing the family love. You could feel it roll off the camera. It brings a sweet smile to my face. The kids are so gorgeous that you might just want to have them in your family as well. They were so fun to play with and a joy to capture. Take a look!

I’m so excited to have Katie Moore as guest blogger. She’s a gifted writer, mom and wife who I know you are going to enjoy her writing as much as I do…

Having a new baby is an exciting and rewarding experience! But if you are like most moms, you are probably excited to start getting your old body back. Most women can exercise shortly after giving birth, but make sure your doctor has approved physical fitness. Just like you asked delivery questions about options like pain management, umbilical cord blood banking and immunizations, bring your questions about post-delivery care for your body to your doctor. Breastfeeding mothers can benefit even more by getting in some easy physical activity each day.

Here are five exercises to incorporate into your new, busy routine: 

Yoga Stretches 

Gentle yoga is the perfect way to reintroduce your body to exercise again. You will relax and stretch out all of your achy limbs. Yoga is gentle and soothing to the body, and effective for strengthening muscles. It may also aid in weight loss. Try a beginner session to pinpoint where you are in your flexibility, and then move up to something harder when needed.

Plank Pose 

You may not have enough time to exercise daily, but getting in a quick movement like plank pose can make all of the difference. When doing plank, you hold your body in a push-up position for as long as possible. Thirty seconds to one minute is recommended. This is something all moms can do throughout their day to strengthen the shoulders, core and chest muscles. 

Walk Around The Park 

You will probably need to cover your baby with protective clothing in the sun, but a nice stroll around a pretty park in the morning or evening is a great way to exercise and bond with your brand-new baby. Young ones need fresh air as much as you do, and it will be great to give your little one some exposure to the great outdoors. 

Dance Around The House

It’s a little silly, but turn on some music and dance around the house. Babies love music, just make sure it isn’t too loud. Dancing while going about your household duties will burn calories and help get rid of the excess baby belly. As your little one gets older, he or she will probably giggle as you do silly moves. Dance together if your baby is old enough to support his or her head. 

Use A Mini Trampoline

A mini trampoline is a great way to get in quick bursts of low-impact cardio. They can be folded up and put away easily. You just pull it out when you want to do a quick workout, and put it away after. They are excellent for burning calories fast, and you can do it without spending a ton of money.

As your body becomes stronger and you have more energy, you can begin to kick up the intensity of your workouts. If anything ever hurts, stop immediately, stretch and give yourself time to recover. By taking the best care of yourself, you’ll be able to give your best to your baby.

There is nothing quite like photographing your closest of friend’s family for the first time. I am so overjoyed for Derek and Sonny and could not wait to capture some precious family moments for them. Needless to say I was blown away by the LOVE and WARMTH shared in our portraits. I am so happy to celebrate the twins arrival…

this gorgeous family. The boys were so handsome and engaged the whole time. Well, maybe the baby cried sometimes, but it didn’t matter because we got some really beautiful images. Thanks Lucille and Keith for a truly wonderful session.

Do you see what I see? The cutest baby boy in New York loving his first photo shoot. Well actually, it’s his second. He was relaxing in mom’s stomach when we captured his parent’s maternity shoot. I love meeting the family for the first time when the baby debuts. It’s the most perfect meeting ever. Nathaniel was so relaxed and slept, laughed and ate all during the shoot. 5-10 days old for a newborn is perfect for the first photo session. Babies are all cute, sleepy and flexible allowing for the cutest moments to be captured. Newborns session are always so much fun. When it was all over, I had to admit I was a little sad. Wouldn’t you miss his gorgeous face! Thanks Annabelle and Rodney for a wonderful session.

Sometimes the pictures are beyond gorgeous. Mother and daughter are just MARVELOUS together and the pictures are picture perfect. I loved the connection and love between these two. Josanne and her daughter have a magical bond that shines when you place a camera on it. Mom just wanted some good pictures with her daughter because she only had a couple. Does this sound familiar moms? You have to get from behind the camera and get some beautiful pictures with your family. All I know is that ALL of the pictures Every.Single.One were perfect! And while we were strolling to the park, little S was the STAR of the neighborhood in her animal print cape. Everyone was oohing and aghing over how cute and fashionable she looked. You’ll see what I mean when you look at her outfits below. Josanne thanks for an amazing session together.
