new | bergen county, new jersey newborn, baby and child photographer


I’m participating in “Project 52”, a year-long weekly photo challenge with a group of fellow photographers. We each share one photo per week throughout 2012 and each week has a different theme.

Sadly, I tried this last year and only made it through week 12 or 13! I’d really like to make it all the way through this year and thought that there would be a better chance of that if I posted my Project 52 here on the Half-Pint blog.

This is a fun way for me to explore photography and subjects other than babies and children. I can try out new techniques, different editing processes or use equipment that would otherwise just sit in my camera bag or closet.

I hope you have fun following along with me. And if this inspires you to participate, please feel free to post a link to your photos on the Half-Pint Photography Facebook page.

The theme for Week 1 was “New”. These are my son’s new kicks. You can tell how new they are just by looking at them. No scuffs or dirt here…YET. Aren’t they adorable?! I used flash in this image – something I’m really trying to master this year. I also thought it would be fun to give the photo a bit of a retro look to it. So fun!

Good for you! I made a goal for myself to do 86 blog posts this year (double what I did last year) and since won’t be doing any shoots this month or next month, I’m hoping to take lots of pictures of my own boys!
