Meet Baby M

It was no surprise that the beautiful "L Family" I photographed a few weeks ago produced a gorgeous baby boy. I met "Baby M" on his 2 week birthday and his Mama was already back in her skinny pants! Baby M was wide awake for most of the session and did NOT want to miss a thing so we had a bit of trouble getting the sleepy shots but once his belly was full he drifted off to peaceful sleep so we could pose him. Big Sister "E" could not have been prouder to show off her new baby brother and her beautiful Halloween costume! Welcome to the world Baby M!

Introducing Crane Photography's 2009 Senior Portrait Model!

I met Miss Julia last year when I did her family's portraits by the lake. I could tell a year ago that this young lady had a star quality about her. So I asked her to be my Senior Model to kick off the 2009 Senior Portrait season and we had a ball during her shoot! Don't let that 2nd image fool you, Julia is as sweet and genuine as they come. But she sure can turn on the glam in front of the camera!

So if you're not thrilled with having the same cap and gown shots as everyone else, that took all of 15 minutes to create, why not celebrate your graduation with a truly unique photo shoot. Email me at for more information or to book your senior portrait session.
Thanks for looking!

Attention all modeling agents!

These two naturals are hoping to break into the modeling and acting scene and I had the pleasure of doing their portfolio shots. These two are so beautiful I want to puke, LOL. Seriously, how gorgeous are these kids!? I guess I am a bit biased since they are my cousins but still, take a mental picture of these guys because they're sure to be big stars soon!

To book your own portraits or head shots, please email me at Have a great weekend!

The Chase

Little Miss "A's" Mom warned me that she didn't like taking her to chain portrait studios because she was a runner. I told Mom to bring "A" and her brother "T" along to my local park so I could chase her down for some pictures. And boy did we run! But once I caught up with this little sweetie I got to know her and her brother a little better and got some great pictures too. My favorite moment of the session was when I asked "A" who her favorite princess was and she replied "My Mommy." Here are a few previews from our session:

Beautiful Day for a Beach Portrait!

I had the pleasure of photographing the sweetest family of 4 at a gorgeous beach in LBI this past weekend. Our secret spot took a while to hike to, through deep sand but the results were well worth the effort and shin splints. Here are a few sneak peeks from our session:

Email me at to set up your family's beach portraits before it's too late!

The "L Family's" Maternity session

After 6 wonderful weeks off for maternity leave I began working again with this picture perfect family. I chatted with L a few times before the session and we found the perfect location and went over their "vision" of pictures they hoped to have done. I think we were all very happy with the beautiful results!

I can't wait to meet their new addition when we do newborn pictures in a few weeks!
