Happy Birthday Miss. E!

Yes, TODAY is Miss E’s birthday! I had the pleasure of photographing her and her family in Celebration of her first year and her parents for Surviving! Because, really, thats what the big first birthday is about right?!? Celebrating making it through alive as parent?!?

She was a rockstar, the weather was far from optimal conditions with a light drizzle coming down but that didn’t stop E from hamming it up and doing the same when we headed back to the studio!

ROCKIN it in TRUE DIVA fashion!!!!

unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others

That defines J to a “T”

I was contacted a few months back by J to photograph her daughter E’s Christening this past Sunday in NJ. I was completely honored by the request and knew that this would be a special event and blog post. I don’t want to get too sappy here, and I’m not the best writer, but I really think that attention needs to be made to the AMAZING mother, friend and Human Being that J is!

She is one of the few people I have EVER encountered that has a heart so big and so generous that her mere presence makes you rethink yourself as a person and makes YOU want to give back and help those around you. I have been so moved and touched by her overwhelming concern and generosity for others that it is my goal to really “give back” to those around me.

What is AMAZING to watch is the bond that she has with her daughter, E. I look at them together and there is such an overwhelming sense of peace and love that it makes my heart swell. It is So TRULY evident that J is so very careful in every parental decision she makes and is bringing up a little woman who will have that same large, compassionate and caring heart.

I love watching this fabulously HILARIOUS family together because they truly have an unbreakable bond and a gift to make all those around them feel right at ease!

J and D, You both amaze me with your beautiful hearts and spirits. I am so honored to have a part of such a blessed and sacred day. I am so excited to watch Miss. E grow up because I know, with parents like you, that she WILL grow up to do AMAZING and compassionate acts of selfless love for others as her parents do.

I wish you both a LIFETIME of happiness with that Brilliant blue-eyed little woman of yours!


It’s like a little piece of heaven shinning down and blessing the day!

Swoon|CT & Long Island Family Photography|Lexi-Bella Photography

What makes you swoon? For me there are a TON of things! Really rich, thick handmade paper preferably with a GORGEOUS monogram letterpressed on it, luxurious fabrics, satin ribbon in eye popping colors, a sweet little newborn with pink pouty lips, a little girl in a tu-tu and much much more ……

But what REALLY makes me swoon???

Meet Mr. LBP himself! I really must give full credit of everything I do to this hunk of mine! Why you ask?? Well, if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be a photographer! This is the guy who saw this “gift” in me! Somehow he had an inkling that I’d be good at it, or maybe he was just so tired of seeing me mope around the house whining that, “I don’t know what to do with my life”!!! Oh yeah, there were a lot of days like this ……

Mr. LBP is really the family photographer, well at least HE knows more about photography and the workings of a camera than ANYONE I know! Actually, I think he knows just about everything!!! Really, ask his co-workers! The most common phrase you’ll hear pepople say around him, “Dude, HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS STUFF”?!?!? Literally, about EVERYTHING!!! LOL

Oh yeah, He’s pretty “swoony”; well at least to me, even 10 YEARS later! Hard to imagine! It’s amazing how I can look at him and literally see a reflection of myself! Anyone that knows us knows we are BOTH very passionate about what WE believe in! Leads to some really interesting and heated debates at times but that’s the fun in it right?! But at the end of the day, I know no matter what, I can come to him about ANYTHING and he just gets it! And he can do the same, no words have to be exchanges we just know….

Probably one of my favorite new shots, personal to me because in his glasses  is my reflection! It’s the perfect image of the relationship we have, always reflecting each other!

But the ULTIMATE swoon factor is seeing this ……

It doesn’t get any better than this!! Do you see the little smirk on Miss. Lexi-Bella’s face?? That’s LOVE as pure and raw as you can get! {Swoon}

Or this……

Or how about this one??

So what makes you swoon??? 10 Year this summer and still going strong!
