Erin and Walter's story is similar to thousands of other couples dealing with the struggles of infertility. But with that struggle, came a miracle in Baby Molly. I absolutely adore Erin and Walter-they have such a natural glow about their love and now their glow for Molly, it's one of the purest emotions to witness.

After years of trekking down the IVF road, Erin and Walter made the decision to no longer continue IVF treatments and shortly after that decision was made, they found out they were pregnant.

I had the time of my life photographing a beaming couple celebrate the life they had created. There was such love and joy radiating from both Erin and Walter-that it was hard not to come across a photograph that didn't embody those feelings.

A few weeks after Baby Molly was born, I was asked to photograph her at their home and I was absolutely elated. The day after Molly was born, she had to undergo heart surgery and I have so happy to report that she came out of the surgery like the little trooper and miracle that she is and healed perfectly. When I had the honor of taking her first official photos, she weighed in at a sweet 6 pounds 9 ounces. 6 pounds 9 ounces of fighting against the odds, 6 pounds 9 ounces of sheer miracle. A 6 pound 9 ounce bundle of pure joy.

Congratulations, Erin & Walter-

I had photographed Kaya and Mason's maternity shoot back in August and it was wonderful. I was their wedding photographer in April and I was delighted that they had reached out to me to capture their first pregnancy!

Kayla and Mason welcomed a sweet little boy, named Rowan. Rowan is one lucky boy to have Kayla and Mason as his parents and I'm one lucky photographer to have Kayla and Mason choose me to photograph their best memories.

4 years ago, I had photographer Miranda and Joe's wedding and Miranda was my first ever boudoir shoot! I'm forever indebted to her for allowing me to shoot her for her boudoir since it was my first session and I was incredibly nervous. Now, Miranda and Joe are the proud parents of a beautiful little boy, Luke. But, when Luke was still a bun, we had a maternity shoot at one of my favorite parks. You guessed, Double Trouble State Park!

I really love these two. They are a very chill and loving couple. They were so excited the day of this shoot (even though it was probably the hottest day of the Summer!)-Miranda looked stunning in her Evergreen flowing maternity dress and Joe was in complete adoration of his wife. I could really see how attentive he was and how much of an amazing father he was going to be.

Miranda and Joe are such a photogenic couple, as well. They both have piercing eyes and compliment each other beautifully. I'm so happy that I've been a part of their memories and I am elated that Miranda and Joe are proud parents to a very healthy and very adorable little boy. Congratulations, you two! Luke is extremely lucky to have you for his parents.

I had photographed Ashley's wedding last April (Read about Ashley & Angelo's wedding day here!)-when I found out that Ashley was expecting, I HAD to be the one to help her capture her beautiful bump!

I absolutely love to use Double Trouble State Park in Bayville, NJ as one of my go-to spots for location sessions. It's the best of both worlds, really. I have the water and the beautiful New Jersey woods and no matter what the occasion, my clients are so pleased with how beautiful the background is.

Ashley's maternity dress was perfect! I've noticed that I've become slowly obsessed with maternity dresses specifically made for shoots, just as this because the material and colors used make every mother-to-be a maternal chic Earth Goddess and it photographs perfectly.

Ashley has always been sweet and bubbly, ever since the day I met her. Through our first consultation, to her wedding day and now with her maternity session. I just know how much of an incredible mother she's going to be. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of yet another special day for you, Ashley.
