New Jersey Family & Child Photographer - Outdoor Fall Sessiom

Sometimes, capturing images of a little one is tough. Let's be honest, not many children enjoy sitting still. I don't even like to sit still! Even if they do still still, getting a natural smile that their parents know and love can be a challenge. This however is just part of the business and a common issue  I handle with during photo shoots. Sometimes, though there is a child that is so easy to work with, I think to myself, "Is this for real? Where are the hidden cameras?"

A sparkling soul, this young girl was a natural. From her glowing smile to her willingness to trust me upon just meeting me, was impressive.

What I do love to do the most is photograph good friends and their children. Just take a look you can see the love in their images. I have even photographed the youngest as a newborn! Seriously children grow so fast.

Happy First Year!

As  parent, I love shooting milestone birthdays like a first birthday. What is especially wonderful is when the client, is a tiny little toddler who I once photographed as a newborn! It signifies so much more than just their first birthday. For their parents it signifies an exciting year of learning, growing, struggling and accomplishments. For the child, it is a much more oblivious accomplishment.

For myself, it means a client is returning. Meaning what I am providing is important, meaningful and valued. All the headaches of running a business go away when I see little guy's face light up. It is all worth it.

Northern New Jersey Fall Family Session

Fall family photo sessions are most likely my favorite types of sessions. The turning leaves and the cool crisp air makes for a beautiful landscape and wonderful weather to work in. While the beginning of Fall usually signifies the end of a cycle, or the winter coming in, fall can also be rejuvenating. Time to get ready to spend time reflecting with family & friends and looking towards the new year.

This family has grown quite a bit since I first met them. Finally I got to meet the grandparents to four beautiful boys I have been photographing for a couple of years! Full circle!

Northern New Jersey Maternity Photography Session

This sweet young couple are expecting their first baby boy this July! As soon as I met Kat & Jan, I could feel the strength in their relationship. As beautiful a couple they make, they were also very kind. You could see it in their body language, in their voice, even in the early moments of the shoot where Kat was a bit nervous.

In no time, she loosened up and I got to capture some beautiful moments of Mom & Dad before their little guy arrived. These photo are memories they will have forever, and never fade.

Northern New Jersey Newborn Photography Session

I cannot say it enough. I love newborn baby boys. Although, having primarily photographed so many boys this past year, I was thrilled for a little girl who came my way! Her mom and I go way back, and seeing her with her daughters was such great experience. Two baby girls, very close in age was challenging, I will not lie - but the results..........so worth it! Big sister was very interested in the whole event and absolutely the cutest!

I hope mom and dad enjoyed these photos as much as I did!

northern new jersey child photography session – may 2014

This session was super fun and extra special! After 10 years plus, I was hired by one of my old college roommates! The last time we saw each other, we were both childless, and husband-less, and a lot younger! Seeing her as a mother was so wonderful.

Here are a few from their session - which I might add was a breeze because they were so natural in front of the camera!

Northern New Jersey Child Photography session - May 2014

I really love these two munchkins. After meeting them over a year ago, for their first portraits, I was thrilled when mom contacted me for holiday photos over the winter, then again this spring for a session! Here are a few of my favorites, but it was hard to chose because they were all so sweet!

Northern N.J. Newborn Photography Session - April 2014

The wonderful thing about newborns, is that they arrive when they are good and ready. While some babies wait until well past their 40 week stay, some babies arrive early. This newborn boy decided to come earth side a bit earlier than expected. Fortunately both Mama and baby were nice and healthy and eagerly awaiting their newborn photo shoot!

A sweet little sleepy guy, this guy was a dream, hence his dreamy styled photo edits. For more information on booking a Northern New Jersey Newborn Photo shoot, please contact me!

Blogging

OH BOY! I am way behind on blogging my sessions. I am being totally honest.  

The school year is exhausting. Anyone else feel that way?  Although at times, I felt as if I would not survive the organized chaos parenting brings on, I did it. And my clients were awesome!

 

Stay tuned.

A sweet newborn boy, with a touch of red hair! This little guy was simple a pleasure to work with and even Mom got in on the session.

There is noting better than that motherly glow a woman has immediately after she gives birth!

Spring is here!.....?.....maybe on its way?

  There is no doubt that this past winter has been brutal on everyone. Not only have the children suffered major cabin fever, but their parents, eh hem, yours truly, are exhausted. The sun has shown its face, yet there is still a brutal wind that accompanies it on most days. As I type I am watching the trees sway viciously back and forth, while my rose plants look like they will blow off the balcony. The weather is completely out of control!

So we wait. We will wait for the warmth. We can wait for the wind to cease, the sun to shine and the cicada bugs to buzz. Because in my book, that means summer! Maybe we will just skip right over spring!

While we wait I updated my Facebook banner with a newborn theme. There have been a ton of babies born lately and this makes me think Spring. What do you think? You can see it below or here at Christine Wans Photography Facebook Page!

Wyatt is two! - Northern New Jersey Child Photographer February 2014

I have to admit, I was not expecting much. Wyatt is freshly two years old and that age can be so difficult to photograph. He has a new baby brother at home and an older one that he loves to keep up with. Keeping an open mind, we kept it casual. Relaxed, fun and no props. He was a little ham and revealed the funniest little smile!

Want to check out his new little brother? Here is his Northern N.J. Newborn Photography Session here.

Northern N.J. Newborn Photography Session April 2014

This little guy, was born only one day after my very own birthday! He is the youngest of three boys, and his gender was not revealed until he arrived. How much fun is that? Sometimes I think of my little guys as newborns, and wish I had waited until their birth to find out their sex. Also the white quilt is a special homemade gift from a family member that each boy in this family has been photographed on or in!

This was also mama's third natural and drug-free birth, so kuddos to her!

His big brothers think he is pretty neat and so do I ;)

Northern N.J. Newborn Photography Session - April 2014

Lots of newborn photographers claim that there is just a small window to photograph newborns. In order to get those tricky poses of a fresh newborn, yes, the first few days of life work well. But it is not the only age that is appropriate for photographing a newborn. Yes, it may take a little more work to comfort them, or how about this - they may even be awake and content!

This little guy was 3 weeks old and was a dream :) So if you are wondering, "When is the best time to photograph a newborn?", the answer simply varies. This little guy slept well after a bit of feeding, but was less inclined to curl in his legs or arms. Can you blame him?

Northern N.J. Newborn Photography Session March 2014

I had the opportunity to photo graph a sweet newborn girl. She was a dream. Slept the whole time and was even very happy in the buff!! Her parents requested one specific photo in an Easter theme, so I found this adorable little hat from Natural Newborn Knits on Etsy! How adorable! Northern N.J. Newborn Photographer
