Stephanie and Jeff's Maternity and Pregnancy Photos | Haddonfield NJ | New Jersey Maternity Photos

Back in December, I was able to photograph several children to benefit the NICU at Virtua Hospital. One of those clients, referred me to Stephanie. She knew that Stephanie was expecting her first child in a few weeks and thought that we would be a great fit to capture this amazing time in her life. When I first spoke to Stephanie on the phone, I could tell she was very excited for her surprise baby. She wanted to be surprised to the gender on her new baby! How sweet is that!!! 

Jeff and Stephanie are super smart people. Working for competing companies, Boeing and Lockheed Martin, they sure didn't seem like competitors at home. We had so many laughs, butt grabs, sweet moments and beautiful smiles. You could just tell in their body language that they are so in love and excited to bring in this new life. 

As world travelers, we had to get a photo in front of Le Cafe Creperie. Reminded them of their European adventures!

Of course, all pregnant women have cravings. Well it was so cute that Stephanie had a craving for Banana Dulce de Leche Gelato. I even surprised her at the reveal with the sweet treat ;) 

Please enjoy Jeff and Stephanie's Maternity and Pregnancy photos.

Being pregnant is a once in a lifetime experience. Sometimes it's planned. Sometimes it's not. Sometimes it's a surprise. Sometimes it's a miracle.

My point is that you are growing the most precious gift anyone could ask for. Documenting this time in your life is one the most important things you need to do.

We all know. I love to take photos. Every. Single. Day. Work or not. I think it is so important to document everything because we don't know what tomorrow will bring. I hear a lot of mom's say they don't want to be in pictures because they are fat, or have a pimple, or they just want photos of the kids... Well, I find it so important that you can look back on this time in your life that some people don't get.

I felt like a cow. I felt huge, hot, ugly, but I still loved my body because it was creating and nurturing the life of my son. I wouldn't change it for the world... well maybe I should have laid off the sweets but that's another blog post :)

Spa Day!!!

I tell my clients that not only is your maternity session a day to take photos, but it should also be a day to pamper yourself. We all know that mom's and women in general work so hard to make sure we work, make dinner, clean, cut the lawn, do the laundry... the list goes on and on. Take the day to go for a spa trip. Get your nails, hair and make-up done so you can relax and feel confident.

Get a Massage!!

De-stressing will make you more comfortable in photos.

Fluids

Make sure to drink lots of fluids so that your skin is glowing!

Moisturize

Remember in my last blog I talked about moisturizing!!! Lather up a lot for the week before to help any dry skin areas.

Rent or purchase a nice flowing dress

Renttherunway.com has some amazing dresses to wear for your session or you can invest in a beautiful dress that you can wear throughout your pregnancy. If you are investing in my services, it is well worth it to invest in a comfortable flowing dress. You could even wear it to your baby shower!!!

Hainesport NJ | Celeste & Dave's Wedding Day | NJ Wedding Photographer

Dave and Celeste are just perfect together. From the moment I met them at Dunkin Donuts for our consultation, I just knew I had to photograph their wedding.

Sweet Bella came too and enjoyed a donut :)

During Dave and Celeste's engagement session last summer, Bella was my assistant for the day!

She has to be one of the best children to photograph. She picks her own poses and tells me what to do!!!!!!!!! HAHA

I knew that after photographing their engagement session that the wedding was going to be BEYOND amazing!

AND IT"S TRUE!!

The morning started with my assistant and I photographing at her Celeste's sister-in-law's house to get ready. Her whole family was there, even little Chase.

Sorry, but I had to see him before I started photographing because Chase is just TO DIE FOR CUTE!!!!

As Bella and her cousin ran around having fun, Celeste was calmly getting her make-up done.

Monique did an amazing job on Celeste's make-up. Go check out her website HERE.

Before we knew it, it was time to get dressed.

Bella wore a matching dress to her mom's.

Next, it was on to the ceremony early to get some shots of the guys.

They were ready and pumped to get the ball rolling!!!

Dave is part of Delran Fire Department Station 231.

Let's just say, when a fire fighter gets married, all his brothers come to support him. I think 90% of Delran Fire Company was present ;)

The Ceremony was absolutely gorgeous.

First Presbyterian Church in Haddonfield, NJ is stunning.

Cathedral ceilings, beautiful music and an amazing alter are just a few of the details.

The ceremony was beautiful. Bella was the official "Bubble girl" she told me.

Dave got down on one knee and proposed to Bella. He said he would be there for her no matter what.

He then gave her a necklace that said "I Love You" and a picture of them on the back. Everyone cried

(Even I did)

We then proceeded to The Bradford Estate in Hainesport, NJ.

Let me tell you... this is my absolute favorite venue to shoot at. Not only is it beautiful but the staff is just amazing. All the vendors I have worked with in the past here are also amazing. They are team players!!! If you are looking for a venue, this is the place to be!!!

Music was played by Paul from DJ's Available. He sure did know how to get the party started!!

The morning may have started out rainy and dreary but, the whole day turned out perfect! Gorgeous blue and poofy clouds all day!

I hope that Celeste and Dave are having fun in Riviera Maya!!!

Please enjoy Celeste and Dave's Wedding Day!
