Every year photographers across the nation increase the national sales average of caffeinated products and power bars in preparation for the busy season. I know I at least contributed to a percentage of the sales of such products to get me through! Check out the galleries below to see what kept me a BUSY this month!
Rustic Barn Wedding | Jon + Kate | Elmer, NJ | 10•2•21
October hit the ground running for me with a rustic Salem County barn wedding in Elmer, New Jersey. The weather was perfect and the decor was just right to get everyone in the mood for Fall!
Fall Mini Sessions | Woodstown & Mullica Hill, NJ | 9•25•21, 10•9•21, 10•23•21
Not only did I photograph a lot of graduations, I also hosted Fall Photo mini sessions at the Mullica Hill Fall Festival, as well as in my driveway at my home studio in Woodstown, NJ.
Courthouse Elopement | Courtney + Chris | Burlington County Lyceum, Mount Holly, NJ | 10•13•21
One of my favorite occasions is a courthouse wedding (this is how my husband and I eloped!) Courtney & Chris's wedding at the Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences also was the first time I've submitted my work for publication and it was featured on Brides & Weddings Magazine's website.
Fall Engagement Session | Meghan & Steve | Batsto Village, Hammonton, NJ | 10•17•21
One of my all-time favorite locations to photograph family and engagement sessions is Batsto Village in Hammonton, NJ. I had the pleasure of taking one of my 2022 wedding couples' engagement photos on what happened to be the busiest day of the year for Batsto! Even among the crowd, all they could see was eachother.
Maternity "Donut Smash" | Baby Aurora | Ceres Park, Pitman, NJ | 10•24•21
One of the sessions from the Fall Festival contacted me about an idea she had for her maternity photos... a DONUT SMASH! Baby Aurora is going to grow up with the most awesome siblings who can't wait to take her on adventures and share all of life's sweetest moments with her!
Motherhood + Nursing Session | Cece + Louise | NSP Studio, Woodstown, NJ | 10•26•21
I got a ton of new backdrops in this month including this vintage style boho drop! Just in time to help a friend document her motherhood and nursing journey with her daughter. This session kicks off a small side project I'll be announcing in 2022, so stay tuned! If you have a unique infant/toddler feeding situation (special needs, NG tube, spoon feeding, exclusively pumping, etc) and would like to participate in a unique photo project as well as document your journey, please get in contact with me!
Macabre Alt-Wedding | Alaina + Jimmy | Pilesgrove, NJ | 10•30•21
Halloween weekend was full of activity! One of my most anticipated weddings of 2021 was at a private residence in Pilesgrove, NJ. With a macabre theme and perfect weather, these two said "I do" and brought together a pair of loyal and loving families.
Halloween Mini Sessions | Barney Loves Books, Woodstown, NJ | 10•31•21
October is not only a popular month for weddings, a lot of colleges and universities hosted their graduations and commencement ceremonies. Thanks to the pandemic, they had to cancel or postpone most of the 2020 and early 2021 ceremonies. I work for a company called GradImages on a contract basis and spent a few days this month photographing a few hundred graduates at about a dozen events. Due to copyright I'm not allowed to share those images, but they're a great deal of fun to fill my time with.
Tons more on the books for November, so I'm certainly not slowing down any time soon. Even with all of the activity in October, I still found time to take promotional test images for my Santa mini sessions, so don't miss out on that! Book your Santa experience today!
