2013 was our most successful year here at Jennifer Beitchman Photography. 2014 is going to be even bigger with comes HUGE changes.

I just wanted to share some of the pictures I took for my holiday card this year. I had done our photo shoot in the peak of the fall foliage, while it was still warm. I didn’t get around to designing a card until quite some time later and by then, I wanted a little more. Then, in early December, we were bless with 2 minor snow events in one week! I was SO excited to capture some beautiful pictures of my girls in the snow to include in the card.

She did this little pose completely on her own: Holiday picturesPiper apparently loves the snow: Holiday pictures Holiday pictures Holiday pictures

I was so excited to get some snow in early December! Its so rare that we get snow, let along one that accumulates. And even during daylight hours. So while Zoe was in school (I really should have kept her home for pictures!), I took Piper out in the yard for a 5 minute photo shoot before her nap. She had so much fun and I was able to get some amazing pictures of her in the snow. It was the perfect amount falling and perfect big flakes.

Love this face: Styled Snow sessionAs with everything in life, Piper handles it with reckless abandon and pure passion. I love this picture of her so much: Styled Snow session

Can’t wait for more snow! Message me if you want to book a snow session!

I was so excited to have another session with these sweet sisters this year. Last year we shot our session in November, when it was pretty cold and after Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on Long Island. Luckily we were only shooting a 30 minute mini session and we got some beautiful pictures.  This year we did the session in September when it was significantly warmer and the preserve was still very green and lush. We also did a full session and I was able to spend more time with the girls, who are almost the exact same ages as my little girls. Mini sessions are great but I really prefer full sessions. It gives me more time to get to know my clients and allows them more time to come out of their shells.

A really funny thing happened during this shoot. While I was over in another park of the location, Rob, my amazing husband/assistant/prop boy was setting up a set for me. The spot were was setting up is a path, but he was mindful not to be in anyone’s way. Along come two women on bikes and ask him what he was doing. He explained he was setting up a set for a photo shoot for a family, specially the kids. The two women accused him of being a child molester and threatened to call the cops on him. They obviously didn’t because no one showed up, but it was simultaneously the most hilarious and ridiculous thing to ever happen on a photo shoot.

You’d never know that little Grace got car sick on the way to the shoot. She was so happy and well behaved. And I love Madeline’s pose she struck:

A child’s special toy is so important to them and to have a memory like this is priceless: fall sisters photo shootSeriously, how cute are they??: fall sisters photo shoot sisters fall photo shoot sisters fall photo shoot sisters fall photo shoot sisters fall photo shootGrace is so full of personality, she reminds me so much of Piper, except she actually cooperates when I take her pictures: sisters fall photo shootIt took a while, but Madeline finally warmed up and let her real smiles come out: sisters fall photo shoot sisters fall photo shootThis photo shoot yielded some of my favorite pictures ever and this is definitely one of them: sisters fall photo shootI was DYING when I got this shot.

I love getting the opportunity to do a photo shoot with kids I know. I met Mollie and her mom when Zoe and I were in the same mommy & me classes with them when the girls were about 6 months old. We wound taking the same classes for almost 2 years. Mollie and Zoe have a lot of fun when they get to play together (along with their other friend Abby.) It was a chilly day and I knew we would be challenged with posing 2 month old baby Grace. But Mollie and Owen are such amazing siblings, they held her really well! We had a slight meltdown with Mollie and Owen in the beginning, but we eventually got gorgeous pictures of them and a wound up with a LOT of incredible pictures of Owen!

All three kids looking at the camera. Sometimes miracles happen:

Owen finally really warmed up when he was given permission to run: fall siblings photo shoot fall siblings photo shootBut he would only run with his big sister: fall siblings photo shootI adore Mollie: fall siblings photo shootHow cute are they: fall siblings photo shootOh Owen, you are seriously just the cutest boy ever: fall siblings photo shootThis pout: fall siblings photo shoot fall siblings photo shoot fall siblings photo shootAnd while all that was going on, Grace fell asleep and I could help but posing her: fall siblings photo shoot
