A Voce Behind the Lens

When I met one of my besties -Amanda- years ago, I instantly fell in love with her and her entire family. I always joke that I adopted myself into their family...but the reality is that it's not a joke they are like family to me. And they happen to be one hell of a talented family! Among the talented members is Amanda's sister Jen. 

Jen happens to be a fantastic knitter of these absolutely ADORABLE "little monster" dolls that she sells on Etsy:

Here is a sample of these precious critters!

I'm so happy to say that Jen specially made one 
for my daughter which I will definitely post soon! :)

Jen also is a FANTASTIC photographer! 
So when it came time for our Maternity Shoot we knew exactly who to call!

We did the shoot at Gardiner Country Park in West Bay Shore, N.Y.
It was an absolutely beautiful park with a million trails and the perfect dog park as well!

It had this very cool Alice in Wonderland-esque feel with 
winding trails of all different trees, fields, and swamp lands.

Everyone there was very friendly and respectful of us shooting there.
It was just an all around great location that Sal and I agreed we had to visit in the Fall
to see how beautiful all the different trees would look!

Jen as always was really dedicated and was getting down in the dirt for us! lol
She climbed through fields and anything it took to get the shot! 
Sal & I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

Pregnancy is a beautiful experience but let's be honest ladies 
we don't always feel so beautiful during it! 
Jen changed that for me - I truly felt BEAUTIFUL when I saw these shots!
Every one was better than the last!

Here are just a few:

Voce means "voice" in italian
Jen's photography is aVocebehindtheLens and that is exactly what she is!

If you are looking for a great photographer who puts you at ease 
and understands how to take pictures that aren't posed and "been there done that" 
then Jen is your girl!
