This week marked Sunny’s ballet review. She’s been taking ballet for about 2 years, and every review I am more impressed with the effort these little ones put into their work. To give you a frame of reference, here is a picture from Gracie’s review when she was two years old. (you can follow us Read more ..

Having Sunny as a child is not unlike having the Queen of England as your child…or so I would imagine. My daughter is all princess, all of the time. I’ve told you her take on most everything, “Mommy, that’s not for pretty.” As in “Would you like to play soccer this spring?” “Mommy, that’s not Read more ..

2014 was one of the best years of my life. To be perfectly honest- every year we have good health and each other is perfect. I want to thank you readers for coming to this space and sharing this crazy ride with us. Your kindness and support means everything to me and my family. If Read more ..

My Gracen, You are five years old. We have five years worth of memories together- and yes my life began only when I met you. I seem to have no memories ( none worth remembering) before your existence, and now that you’re here I have no memory that doesn’t include, or revolve around you. Now Read more ..

This past weekend made me so happy. We kicked off the Christmas season at my friend Amanda’s house. She hosts a Christmas caroling party every year (though this was our first) and it really felt the way Christmas should. Children, and laughter, and joy, and treats, and homemade eggnog! Walking into Amanda’s home is like Read more ..

That title sounds promising doesn’t it? Sadly I took very few pictures of all the fun we had. These are from Matt’s cell phone. We headed into the city for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We go every year and I love that it’s our tradition. I will save you the sob story of how Read more ..

Every thanksgiving I like to give thanks for what I’m most grateful for. It’s a long list and you’re on it! I’m grateful for my health.  That’s a not a given. I’m grateful for my family. All of them- even the crazy ones. Especially the crazy ones. I’m grateful for my friends. I have so Read more ..

Lately we’ve been feeling the effect of having an (almost) five year old in our home. There is a lot of eye rolling and “really”.  As in “really Mommy? REALLY.” To be fair she also has days were she is sweet as sugar- singing her holiday songs and asking me to color with her. I Read more ..

When you live away from your family, you create a family with the people around you. We are very lucky to have my brother and JC just a few miles up the road, and we are luckier still to have JC’s parents and sister in the New York area. They come down to New Jersey Read more ..

I’m very fortunate to have gotten to photograph this beautiful family in Verona Park, on one of the coldest days of this fall. Thankfully they’re true professionals and made it look easy to be out in the elements! Not only did Kristen & Ryan rally, little Griffin was a true champ and tiny ham! This Read more ..
