May The Force Be With You.... | Julie Marie Portraits | Rochester, NY Children's Photographer

Happy Halloween weekend, everybody!   We've had a great weekend in Rochester thus far!  My niece, nephew and sister came to visit, and we had a Star Wars Trio photo shoot this afternoon.  Last year, Jack, Julia and Jake dressed up as superheroes, and my mom used that photo for her holiday card.  This year we wanted to surprise her with the a new theme - Star Wars.  So, for all of you that receive a holiday card from my parents, you know what it will look like this year!  (and in case you're wondering...last year's photo shoot with the 3 J's was also 100x easier  because Jake wasn't even crawling at the time)  This year was a different story......he barely stood still for even a second, and we had to bribe him with M&M's!

After the photo shoot, we packed into the car and went down to the National Museum of Play.   They were having a special Halloween party there.  The kids had the best time...they got to make some crafts, get some tattoos, play on the exhibits, and they even got a little bit of candy!!  We can't wait to go back!  
Halloween 2010 - much easier to take the photo b/c Jake just sat!

And I had to share a photo of my sister and her kids, Jake aka Yoda and Jake, my hubby & I!

Truce With Food - Check It Out! | Julie Marie Portraits|New York Photographer

One of my former brides, Ali Shapiro, is an amazing entrepreneur in the Philly area.  She has created an amazing business, and you've likely seen her on NBC as well as heard about her if you're in the Philly area.  Anyway, with her business, she has started a program called, Truce with Food!  With the upcoming holidays, this new workshop sounds like the perfect thing that I need!  Y'all should go check it out as she's offering a virtual workshop, so anybody can attend!  And....I can't forget to mention how excited I am that my photo is on the cover of her workbook below and there are a couple of others on her website!

Bittersweet Goodbyes|Off to New York

We've had a crazy last few weeks in our household to say the least!  We just recently found out that we're relocating to Rochester, NY with my husband's work!  It literally happened on a Tuesday, and my husband had to leave the following Monday!  Yikes.....It's kind of a bittersweet thing for us.  I'm extremely excited to go there because that means we will be so much closer to our families.  We, also, will no longer need to hop on a plane to go visit my family! :)  However, I'm very sad to leave all of my wonderful clients that I've had the pleasure of photographing these past two and a half years.  Without my clients, I'm not sure how I would have survived the move to Delaware being that I was without the comfort of seeing my family on a regular basis.  Thank-you to all of you for your support, friendship and kindness!  

So, with moving, that means my blogging will go to the wayside for the time being yet again.  I have so many weddings and family sessions to share with you, but I just have not had the time to sit down and blog.  My plan is to get settled into Rochester and eventually update you all with the fun sessions and weddings that I've had since April!   

And since I can't do a blog post without a photo....check out this cutie!  You might remember him from last year......so big now and so full of personality!
