C gets a brother! Welcome Baby N!

Hi!  Happy 2016!  Welcome back!
The winter is always super slow which is a nice break from the hefty schedule of the remainder of the year!  If you haven’t been there yet – be sure to visit and Like Holly Haddad Photography on Facebook as I do post a ton of teasers and photos on their that may not make it to the blog!  I do love photography but as a teacher/photog/wife/mom/human who needs sleep I don’t always get around to blogging each and every session!  I’d love it if I could!  But sharing via FB is also a good way for you to see your images right away and share in any way you deem fit!

Anyhow… This year I started off with some of my favorite people!  Helena and Bryan have been loyal clients since engagement and I was so happy to capture their second little boy last week!  Little baby Noah was 2 weeks old and such a cute little peach!  Big brother Christian was very excited to have his photos taken and I had a great little visit with family!  So please do enjoy this perfect little family!  <3

Meet Baby Lucy! <3 A Newborn Shoot

And now for something totally different!
I know I’ve been slacking on blogging my portrait sessions and yes I do feel badly about it.  But, with like a thousand of them coming up in October, I feel now is a good time to flex these blogging fingers and get cracking!
And how awesome, but to start this new found blogging enthusiasm with a dear friend’s sweet little baby girl!  Meet Lucy!  Mom and dad were a bride and groom of mine and Mom’s sister is one of my fabulous BFF’s!  Baby Lucy posed for her first shoot on her two week birthday and after a bit of rocking by mom snoozed for us and got some super cute photos!
Enjoy!

Taylor’s Senior Photo Session!

Happy Monday!
Is it not, a million times easier to go to work on a Monday after a Patriots WIN?  Jeezer, it was like cake compared to last week!  (Second thought… these guys are Eagles fans, prob not the best place to talk about the AMAZING Patriots…)
Anyhow – here’s Taylor!  She is a senior and we met up for her senior session with her family at Pierce Beach in Somerset.  For such a local location – it has some gorgeous light!  I had a great time and Taylor made it so easy by being so drop dead gorgeous and such a great model!  Her sisters and parents were along so we made sure to snap a few of them too!
Enjoy!

Hi guys!  Welcome back!  It’s almost the weekend yay!

The S Family!

Happy Weekend!  Well for me anyways!  Squeezing the life out of these last few weeks of summer!

Meet the Sorrenti Family!

Welcome back!
This post is so special!  Meet the entire Sorrenti Family!  The matriarch of the family is a super recently retired secretary of  WMS (my alter ego).  And let me tell you something about that little lady, she is awesome.  I’ve worked with her since I started at WMS and whatever punches we threw at her she masterfully handled.  From new computer systems to new teachers and everything in between.  She is a super special lady and everyone at WMS felt exactly the same.  Part of her retirement gift was a session for her entire family, who she adores.  And the reverse is also true as I had to juggle Jeannine’s calls along with her daughters as they were simultaneously planning a surprise night out that she had no idea about!  But it worked!  What a sweet family!  I’m truly blessed to have worked with such an amazing woman and I think I speak for almost everyone at school when I say she will be dearly, dearly missed.
Now, enjoy this gorgeous family!

Personal Post… My “Baby” is Two!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  (or Cinco de Drinko as a past me used to call it…)  Now it comes in a different form as my day yesterday was filled with sweets and activities for my daughter’s birthday!  Yes my daughter was born on Star Wars day, something she will always be reminded of.  I like to joke that Sami stresses out over Star Wars day, but that’s just because he has to choose just ONE Star Wars shirt to wear ALL day…  this can be a painstaking decision.  Anyways – I’d love to share a few shots of my brand new two year old.  Cake smashes are for one year olds (even though in all honestly I think a two year old would have way more fun) and I have an idea for three, but nothing for two.  Did a lil internet research and came up with a balloon/party themed shoot.  Pair this with a cute tutu (upcycled from Halloween), new bright red chucks, and a cute peace sign onsie (aka two! – thanks hubby for the great idea) for a super fun shoot!  I had originally thought maybe some confetti, then my sanity rang the bell and I decided I was okay with not cleaning up hundreds of tiny little pieces of paper.  The shoot did take some time to set up.  People keep asking how… well – blew up the balloons and taped them to the wall in an every other pattern so that they sort of nestled into each other.  I tied some fishing line up and hung some ribbon from it to give the ribbons a 3D effect.  It was def a challenge to get a 23 month old to sit and smile AND look at the camera.  Bribery came over to play for the first time and that helped tremendously!  Then the hubby came home and helped get just a few more smiles!   One question I do have is… who the heck taught my kid to duck face?!  : P
Enjoy!
