This sunrise fall family session closed 2019 with a bang. Together, the Robitzski family and I worked together to capture and commemorate this holiday season with beautiful, heirloom images of their family.

I love the candids captured here and also the beautiful images at the front of the estate. My client took such time, effort, and care in planning their beautiful outfits that not only accentuated the color palette of the venue; however, she carried her colors throughout different outfits and also used a variety of textures. So creative!

Morristown National Historic Park is one of my favorite New Jersey historical venues for the lifestyle family portrait session. Sat in Morris County, New Jersey, this is the perfect historical estate for the working family to capture their portraits. This estate has beautiful grounds and is in the heart of Morris County. Perfect for the working family in Morris and Union County needs a photography venue close to their home and wants a close-to-home feeling for their session. The foliage was perfect and the light of the sunrise was just right for us.

This sunrise family lifestyle session was absolutely perfectly planned. I am speechless. I am so thankful to have been chosen to capture these special moments for this family. It is my honor to commemorate these heirloom photographs for you and to celebrate the 2019 holiday season by your side. Thank you for your artistic commission. It is such an honor to commemorate the next generation of your family by your side and I am so looking forward to watching your family grow!

The Inn at Millrace Pond is a beautiful venue located in Hope, New Jersey, a historic small town of agriculture, beautiful landscapes, rich history, and culture.

The grounds of the Inn at Millrace Pond have hints of red, baby blues, and yellows in it’s architectural design. These colors were so precisely accented throughout Mary and Ken’s photography collection. Mary and Ken designed such a beautiful day one-on-one with their team of vendors. As soon as I approached the venue, I was in awe. The foliage, sights, and just the minimal decor was breathtaking. Mary, chose her color palette to accent this venue so beautifully and worked with a team of such talented vendors to craft a simple and elegant wedding day for her and Ken’s intimate wedding. This venue is managed by Frungillo Caterers and if you’re looking for a unique, rustic colonial inn in the heart of the mountains, I would highly recommend this New Jersey venue!

Just a few of my favorite and unique details from this day that Mary and Ken chose, were Ken’s burgundy tux, Mary’s gown plus details, and the incredible color combination. Ken wore a burgundy tux, black classic shirt underneath his tux, burgundy pocket square, burgundy plus patterned bowtie, and brown leather dress shoes to accent this bow tie. See black dress shirt (pictured below).

Additionally, she had beautiful white gold accessories such as her Badgley Mischka Bridal shoes, and beautiful rings from Robbins Delaware Diamonds to accent her ivory gown from Jay West Bridal.

The unique textures in fabric and alternating style of bridesmaid gowns moved the viewers eye throughout the canvas.

Peggy Patton of The Flower Mill created handcrafted bridal, bridesmaids bouquets, and unique groom and groomsmen boutonnières that accented the venue and its beautiful grounds that is cared for by Frungillo Caterers so well. Their aroma was a true experience in addition to their colors against this beautiful backdrop of foliage. The orange ranunculus, burgundy dahlias, greenery, and rose pink florals were all handpicked, placed precisely, and hand crafted with artistry by Peggy and her devoted team.

The foliage was rich on their special day, accented their florals so precisely accented the beautiful grounds of their wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond at Frungillo Caterers.

I am truly still in awe of the colors of this collection and their day was so special. Thank you so much for having me to photograph your special day. What an honor!

Congratulations, Mary and Ken!
