H family | Christmas family portraits at Princeton University

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!  I love when families want to take their holiday photos in winter, especially when there are such lovely decorations around the Princeton campus.  And even though it was a cold December morning, the H family were still game for all kinds of fun photos around the university!

Little brother Josiah is actually in my son Joshua's preschool class, so I knew he was going to be a fun little ham throughout the session.  :)  The whole family made my job so easy -- it's so clear how much they love each other and have fun hanging out together, and I think that really comes through in their portraits!

H family, thanks for asking me to create these holiday photos with you!

M family | Nutrisystem contest winner!

A month or so ago, I got an inquiry for a family photo shoot from a Nutrisystem corporate email address.  I'm glad I didn't immediately dismiss it as spam, because it turned out to be such a rewarding and fun photography experience!

Nutrisystem recently ran a "Back in the Picture" contest, encouraging members to take pride in the progress they had been making in meeting their health goals, and getting back in front of a camera with their families.  So many people I know, particularly moms, tend to hang back away from a camera, preferring to stay behind the lens, wanting to wait until they lose a few more pounds or look more put together before allowing themselves to be caught on film.  And meanwhile, their kids keep growing up and memories keep being captured and archived without them in the photos.  I certainly fall victim to this mindset myself -- I'm working on just handing off my camera or phone and getting in at least a few snapshots with my kiddos!

I loved that Nutrisystem ran this contest in hopes of encouraging members to get back in some photos with their families.  And I loved that one of the prizes in the package was a holiday session with a local professional photographer!

One of the winners, Karen M., is from Hillsborough, so Nutrisystem asked me to be part of this fun prize package for Karen and her family.  We had such a blast creating these holiday-themed family portraits!  It was a real honor for me to be a part of this contest experience and to meet Karen, a determined, focused, and beautiful mom of three and lynchpin of her family.  And I look forward to photographing this lovely family again as a continuing part of Karen's health journey!

Dana + Richard | Sweetly academic engagement portraits at Princeton University

Isn't it wonderful when two people really find each other?  Two personalities that are so perfectly suited for each other, with so many shared interests and pursuits, that encourage and challenge each other just right?

Dana and Richard are definitely one such couple, and it was so much fun showcasing their perfect match in their engagement photos a couple weeks ago!  Dana is an English teacher at a local private school, and Richard is finishing up his PhD in politics here at Princeton -- and they have the same love for literature, commitment to their faith, kind of nerdy really sweet academic vibe going on.  :)  They were set up on a blind date a few years back, and I've had the privilege of watching their relationship grow in the context of our church small group, and I'm so incredibly excited about their winter wedding coming up in December!!

We had a blast wandering around upper campus and enjoying the last days of autumn as we took these photos.  Watch closely for their matched editions of T.S. Eliot, purchased independently before they knew each other!  And we also may have had fun playing around with their height difference...  :)

Congratulations again, Dana and Richard!  I so cannot wait to shoot your wedding in six weeks!!
