seeing the beauty in chaos | short hills, new jersey photographer

the session included a family of five. three of which were rowdy, fun-loving boys. the florida sun was still warm and bright. the timing was late afternoon after a day spent swimming and playing. needless to say, the boys were NOT in the mood for a family photo shoot. but we went on our merry way and i did my photo thing. yes, there were tantrums and whining that comes with any family. but there were also in between moments of connection and love and laughter that told this family's unique story. my eye can see the beauty in the chaos. and my job is to capture these special moments as they unfold naturally.

after viewing her gallery, the mom in this family wrote to me, "It brought a tear to my eyes -- thank you for converting a crazy photoshoot into perfect family photos! I never get over how talented you really are!"
