Annabelle’s First Birthday Party – Sneak Peak!

      I’ve been photographing Annabelle very often since the day she was born 11 weeks earlier than expected. She has come a LONG way and is as healthy, playful and beautiful than we ever could have imagined. Her first birthday party took place at Shark River Park the day before her birthday. Her parents, Andrew & Heidy LOVE the outdoors and live music. They had a healthy yummy spread of food, the cutest Elmo theme and all the people that loved them there. So much fun! Here’s a...

The Phenomenal Deseree Spinks performs at THE SAINT { NJ Rock Photographer }

Date: March 5, 2012. I can’t get enough of Deseree Spinks. She’s an exciting mixture of funky rock ‘n roll soul. Last night this amazing vocalist played at The Saint, one of Asbury Park, NJ’s hotspots. She sang some amazing originals, including  Fast Train, Love Game, Come and Get It, Nobody and Alibi along with some amazing covers such as Treat Me Right and Mama Don’t Like My Man.

Where words Fail, Music Speaks { NJ Baby Photographer }

Date: December 23, 2011 Age: 4 months, 3 weeks I have no doubt that my “niece” will grow up to love music. Much like yesterday’s post, this photo session took place in my home. Using a black backdrop, a piece of art that usually hang above our bed, and one of JPA’s amps – this photo came to life. And as always, Annie did a great job! Stay tuned! Hearts and Hugs!

Gerald Edward Side A / Side B Douple EP Release Show { NJ Promotional Photographer }

Gerald is awesome. One of my favorite clients by far. I always ask my musician clients to bring an instrument to play for me in an obscure place. Gerald played his mandolin and guitar for me while singing some of my favorite songs of his. This was my favorite promotional session. I think I called him “Son of McCartney” at least twice.. we had a blast! It took place almost a year ago, and G.E. chose to slowly leak his photos out (smart man!), which is why I haven’t posted...
