Yesterday I had the Joy of spending time with Julianna and Adam! I have known them for a while now but yesterday both were looking so mature and grown up to me. I thought it was a perfect moment to connect with them through my camera and see how that special magic is going to come out.
Happy Birthday to Baby James. I was privileged to spend time with him and capturing this amazing experience. The morning starting in a very relaxed way, this baby is a content little guy and he was just ready and excited to explore it all.
Each and every one of us has a BE.you.ti.Full story and a powerful calling in our life. At times life gets too busy and we forget that amazing part of our being. As a photographer this is a big part of my commitment when I am looking through the view finder. I focus on finding that special moment when someone is willing, for just a minute, to take their masks off and revel their BE.you.ti.full self. Photography for me is much more then capturing a moment, it’s about capturing that unique moment where later on you can see your BE.you.ti.Full self and love those images forever.
The most productive and creative time for me as a kids photographer is spending time with them, when they are in a comfortable space. I get to have them and my camera engage in a game, a discussion, a fun activity, where they expose their emotion that I am gratefully get to capture.

Great colors all over played a key factor in the creation of interesting background textures and dept of field got the focus on this beautiful girl having a game with my camera.

This is a fascinating process as I view it from my camera and gets me inspired each and every time. I am so grateful to be able to get to know children from this amazing angle.
During this summer I attended the 2011 annual Balloon festival in NJ, an event that always brings lots of people who share a deep excitement when experiencing all these hot air balloons go up in the sky. This year I joined my photography group @ UniquePhoto to a beautiful day of photography at the festival. Amazed by the experience I had on a hot air balloon this weekend, I tried to capture some images that will explain the silence, the peace, the quiet moments I have experienced while flying about Bridgewater NJ. The take off was very intense, it was really fast and I was making sure that I have all my equipment with me. Within a few minutes I understood that magic of flying a hot air balloon. From all the excitement that we experienced while setting up the ballon, there was a sudden silence and with it an amazing secure and relaxing feeling. The hot air ballon move with the wind which allows the ride to be very peaceful, I had the ability to focus on my photography without being concerted about the flight and I could just see all the magic around me. A few weeks after the event, I was happy to realize that this photo won […]
