What an amazing summer it has been! Thank you to all my new and old clients for keeping me behind the camera and not the computer during these beautiful days. I feel so humbled and lucky to get to work with such fun, happy, and loving families. I know I am behind in posting but that is about to change. I have so many wonderful sessions to share with everyone. Here is a sample of some of the great familes I worked with this past spring and summer.
Enjoy your last official summer weekend! I’ll be posting my fall mini special on Monday so please check back here for the details.
If you are a mom living in Bergen County, NJ then I’m sure you have heard of Cutie Patooties in Englewood. If you haven’t heard about them, here are the details. It’s an all in one playspace for families with newborns to 6 year olds. They have all types of classes including yoga, music, art & cooking, host amazing birthday parties, they even have a boutique gift shop selling unique one of a kind items like lil threadz shirts. But the coolest part is their 1,500 sq. ft. indoor playspace. It is a child’s dream from a big red crooked barn where you can pretend to be a farmer selling fruits and veggies to a center stage where you can preform your latest dance moves. As a grownup you find yourself wanting to get silly on stage or play a super hero in their super hero conner. They even have a snack bar for when your little one gets a snack attack or if you need a caffeine fix.
Brandi Simpkins is the creator / owner of this wonder space. She wanted some pictures to capture the heart and feel of the space to share on her website. As a family photographer I don’t usually photograph spaces but was so excited to create a visual world for such a unique space. I was also allowed to capture one of the child centered classes they offer. Please enjoy the images below!
Cutie Patooties is celebrating their 1 year anniversary this weekend! They are celebrating by hosting an outdoor concert. Click here for details. Come help celebrate this special place where kids can feel free to be kids! Happy 1st Birthday CP! TOJ wishes you many more!
Demarest is the small town many of us hope to live in one day. A place where new neighbors will be welcomed with fresh baked brownies and apple pie, and where the postman knows your name and always has a treat for your dog. Simply put, a tight knit community.
Yesterday the PTO sponsored the 29th annual Demarest 5K to promote exercise and good health and help raise some money . I happily volunteered to capture the event on film. There were some impressive runs put in but my favorite moments were when the families shared the experience together. Some parents cheered for their children at the start, while others crossed holding hands at the finish! I hope you enjoy these images and know these happy moments and sense of community are alive and well here in Demarest.
p.s A special thank you to Nancy Winters for organizing this special event!
