Crockett Family Central Park Family PortraitsNew York, New York

Photographing Katie and Drew’s beautiful family session was like a dream come true, and not only because they are the sweetest family, but because I felt so honored to be able to photograph them as parents with their two baby girls after capturing their lovely wedding a few years ago! Their wedding day is still to this day one of my favorites, and now their family portraits are among my most cherished sessions as well! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to capture their family and meet their two daughters—those girls completely melted my heart! I adore this session for so many different reasons, and you also just can’t beat Central Park and all its gorgeous light on warm summer days. Here are a few of my favorite images from their afternoon portrait session.

ClioNew York Baby PortraitsNew York, New York

Baby Portraits always steal my heart, always! It’s not every day that I get to capture a mother and her baby, so when InSung asked me to photograph Clio’s 6 month baby portraits, I was beyond thrilled. A crochet baby romper, tiny toes, adorable smiles, and sweet little dresses totally make my heart so happy. I had an absolute blast photographing Clio in her sweet little outfits with her mom. It was the perfect afternoon for a Motherhood portrait session and I am so honored I could be a part of it. Here are some of my favorites from this beautiful session.

Caitlin's Maternity SessionConnecticut Maternity PortraitsNorwalk, Connecticut

Maternity Portraits are some of my favorite sessions to capture and I could not have been more excited to photograph this sweet Connecticut Maternity Session. Caitlin and Darren were such sweethearts and so full of joy in front of the camera, complete naturals you could say. They were full of smiles and so ready for the next adventure, welcoming their baby boy! The truth is we had their session all planned out and scheduled and then the forecast was calling for rain, ahh, my biggest fear. So we decided to postpone the session and great thing we did. The light on the day of their re-scheduled session date was just picture perfect and so stunning, the kind of light you hope for in every session. I met them at their Connecticut home and then we decided to head to the beach for the last 30 minutes before we lost light and those are some of my favorites, so dreamy! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and I am so thrilled for these two and their sweet baby boy! Cheers to their next adventure Parenthood. Here are some of my favorites from their afternoon Maternity session.

Blossoms…New York, New York

It’s been a busy few weeks and Wedding Season is officially starting next weekend, woohoo! I have had the pleasure of photographing so many adorable sessions the last month and I can’t wait to share them all with you. Spring arrived and while the Cherry Blossoms were short lived, I was able to capture three sessions before the rain swept them all away, they were definitely magical while they lasted. Sigh. However, here is a sneak peek from Andrew and Jessa’s sweet engagement session. It was so cold the day of their session and this was the only tree actually in bloom at the time but you would never know it. The pros of doing your session earlier in the year before all the blossoms peak is that there is usually not a soul in the park. I couldn’t believe it, all of my favorite spots in the park were so quite and peaceful, it was amazing.

I am off tomorrow to Charleston to celebrate a wonderful Anniversary weekend with the hubby and I am so excited. And then in less than two weeks I am off to Serenbe for the Fount Workshop and don’t think I have ever been so excited for a workshop before! I’m really looking forward to connecting with so many other talented motherhood photographers. Lot’s of exciting projects this year. For now and until I get the chance to blog this beautiful session, here is a little Spring inspiration for you. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy May!

Hank's Newborn PortraitsBrooklyn Newborn Portrait SessionBrooklyn, New York

When Meredith asked me to capture her son’s Brooklyn newborn portrait session, I was so thrilled to work with this sweet family, and even more excited to photograph Hank shortly after his arrival. Hank was just the sweetest little guy, and apparently ever so determined to be on his own time. He arrived on the very day the blizzard hit the city, and the Mayor had shut down all the roads. Needless to say, everyone got to the hospital safe and sound, but I still remember his birth story and how amazing the whole thing was.

Meredith is a Southern gal herself and you know me, I love meeting other Southerners. I had such a blast photographing this beautiful family and Hank’s newborn portraits. It’s been hard to choose favorites, but here are some of my top choices from their sweet newborn session.

The meaning behind Charlie Juliet

When it comes time to actually choose a business name it’s extremely difficult and can often be tricky. I asked myself so many times if I should use my real name, or come up with another name, but the answer was always stuck in my head and luckily for me I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my business name to be.

When my parents found out they were expecting they decided to keep it a surprise and not find out whether I would be a boy or a girl. So many names were tossed around but they were 100% certain boy or girl I would be called “CJ” no matter what. Since they couldn’t choose a name right then and there, my dad started to call me “Charlie Juliet” from the phonetic alphabet. Charlie Juliet became my nickname before I was even born and it seemed to stick around. On May 31st I was born and to their surprise I was a girl! They decided to name me Catherine Julia after my two grandmothers but I would be called CJ. Well CJ turned into so many nicknames over the years, Ceejer, Ceejes, Ceej, Ceejington of Kensington (my old neighborhood was Kensington) but at the end of the day there was always one favorite for me and to this day my dad still calls me Charlie Juliet jokingly.

When I decided to pursue photography and launch a company I knew in my heart I wanted to use my nickname Charlie Juliet. The name always had a special place in my heart and to be honest I liked the way it sounded over CJ Isaac for a business name, sounds better right! People often ask me “is your name Charlie” and “where did your name come from?” My name is not Charlie and even though I have a history of nicknames, my real name is Catherine but to be safe, just call me CJ.

Visiting CharlestonCharleston, South Carolina

Photographing Charleston is a photographer’s dream, it’s truly magic. Recently I went to Charleston with a friend of mine and I was so excited because Charleston is truly one of my favorite cities! My husband and I got married there almost two years ago and I would do it all over again if I could! You honestly can’t beat the charming architecture, the delicious Southern food, the adorable houses with colorful front doors and dreamy side porches, and every single street is so photogenic you want to stay in that moment for days. Sounds amazing right! Well, unfortunately it rained and rained and rained the entire weekend! I know, it was a huge disappointment and not just rain, it literally monsooned! Since the weather wasn’t ideal for picture taking of any kind, I found some of my favorite images from two past trips to Charleston and I am hoping I will be able to take more when my husband and I go down there in May to celebrate our two year anniversary. We are so excited to re-visit the charming city that stole our hearts and will forever remain one of the best weeks of our lives. For now, here are some of my favorite Charleston images from the archives. I’ll never stop loving this pink building, it’s so pretty!

Drew and KimQuail Valley River Club WeddingVero Beach, Florida

Florida Weddings are always so gorgeous to photograph and this one in particular stole a piece of my heart! Drew and Kim knew one another from Vero Beach and had mutual friends but did not begin hanging out until they were both in New York…a friendship grew into something more and the rest is history! When Drew popped the question and they started to plan their big day, it seemed like the perfect fit to get married at the Quail Valley River Club right in Vero Beach. The venue sits on the Indian River and has such a breathtaking view for a outdoor ceremony, something Kim knew she wanted immediately for their wedding day. The Groom’s mom is a local artist in the area and created a custom watercolor emblem of a laurel surrounded by a “K+D” which they used through out their decor and stationary suite. Kim and Drew wanted their intimate Florida wedding to have a English-Garden feel, filled with peonies, ranunculus, garden roses and wispy greenery, and let me tell you the entire day was truly stunning.

Kim wore a beautiful dress by Karen Willis Holmes and carried a vintage clutch from her aunt, while her sweet bridal party stood by her side in a variety of Champagne dresses. The whole day was so much fun capturing these two and all their friends and family, and it wouldn’t have been a celebration without a epic dance party and a sparkler getaway to finish off the wedding day. These two were so incredible to work with, and I am still in aww of what a stunning bride Kim was! She was so beautiful I needed tissues to get through the day. It was so hard to choose favorites, but here are some of my top selects from their big day.
