The Countdown Until School Begins

by & filed under Family Portrait Sessions, Holidays, Portraiture.


Finally we are at the beach and I am lov­ing it! Afternoons watch­ing the kids together, good friends, food and wine make for won­der­ful mem­o­ries. Not as much fam­ily time as I had hoped for — our girls are now 12 and 13 years old and choose to spend time with friends instead of bor­ing old mum and dad. Yikes…this came too fast.

Back to school is just around the cor­ner but I plan to live in denial for another week or so. We are now book­ing our hol­i­day card min­ishoots for September and shoot­ing the fol­low­ing locations:

Pier A in Hoboken, Morristown Arboretum, Davis Johnson Parks in Tenafly and Central Park in NYC.

Give us a call at 201 610 1199 and get your ses­sion booked before the kids’ sports sched­ules take over!

Sea Glass Crafts

by & filed under Be Inspired, Family Craft Ideas, Great Ideas.

Most kids love sea glass and mine are no excep­tion! We have col­lected a fair amount over the years and plan to cre­ate a mosaic on thier bunk beds this win­ter. Here is a great DIY for mak­ing the large glass buoys, which are quite expen­sive to pur­chase. Last year, we used that knot­ting tech­nique to hang jam jars con­tain­ing can­dles in our back­yard. Check out this sim­ple DIYfor cre­at­ing your own sea glass vases.
