Lessons in Chemistry – or dating pictures

I had a blast with Mimi at her Dating Profile session a couple of weeks ago! We met up at a spot in Cranford, NJ that I had never been to. And it did NOT DISAPPOINT! We treated ourselves to coffee, tea and some danishes (cheese and almond…OMG!)! Lokal Coffee & Co is on Miln Street just on the outskirts of the downtown area and conveniently located with ample parking. I am a big fan of Moody and they have an amazing mural on the wall that added the perfect amount of interest to our profile pics!

Mimi is smart, funny, adorable and FUN! I usually have my Clients bring some “props” to our shoot and Mimi brought the coolest little foldup bike that fits right in her car! I had never seen one of these before and it is a must for someone who lives in a city and likes to bike! All about the space saving!

Mimi doesn’t have any pets, but she loves dogs and “tolerates cats” HAHA! One of my favorite answers from Mimi’s questionnaire was in response to my question asking “what brings you joy?”. Mimi answered:

Seeing unadulterated, of-the-moment joy in other people, or animals, like when smiles spread across the faces of young children at my antics, or watching off-leashed dogs chasing after balls. Their joy is so infectious that I can’t help but be joyful as well.

Another question I ask on my questionnaires is “who is your hero and why”. These answers always get me. Mimi answered that her hero was…

Nelson Mandela: for how he led his country and his people (black and white) out of apartheid (with minimal violence) and into fully representative democratic elections; and for retiring from the South African presidency after one term.

There are so many great qualities Mimi has to offer, but if you want to know more, you’ll just have to ask her yourself! I promise you’ll have fun with her! Here are some of the pics from our session. You can find more of my dating profile sessions here.

Dating Profile Session | Somerville, NJ

If I could have ANY job, I would love to own a candy shop…. you’re literally handing out “happiness” all day long… how could anything be better!?

I had a great time hanging out with Jason on an early weekday morning in Somerville, NJ! We were a little worried about the weather, but the sun showed up and helped us capture some awesome shots!

Jason has a demanding job, but he understands the importance of balance between work and family. He also is serious about finding the right person and was able to dedicate some time from his busy schedule to meet with me for our photoshoot.

While Jason’s job may be demanding, it is also extremely fulfilling. He is doing really important work that is quite literally changing and saving lives! But if he could have ANY job, it would be owning a candy shop so he could put smiles on other people’s faces. How “sweet” is that?!?

When I was younger I thought I had the right temperament to be a great doctor, but then I realized how much school was necessary! My current job brings me a lot of fulfillment and is rewarding.

I asked Jason what the last thing was that he wished for. His answer was the perfect amount of seriousness and humor, in my opinion. His initial response was:

I feel blessed to have my health, happiness, and a constant flow of opportunities coming my way to learn and grow. So, whenever I’m offered a chance to make a wish, I always say “I’m thankful for what I have, and I want nothing more.”

Which he quickly followed up with:

But I wish I could eat a pound of M&M’s a week and not get fat!! That’s my favorite candy by the way!

Jason has “the world’s most amazing 11 year old boy… he has no idea how much I love him”. But that’s not all! He also is the proud Dad to 3 pathos plants! He even named them! Gertrude (she’s a southern belle), Mariah (cuz she’s on fire!), and Suzanne. LOL!

I asked Jason what are the 3 most important things he is looking for in a partner.

Honesty, Trust, and Communication are essential for me.

Jason, I had a great time learning about you and exploring around Somerville. I hope you find your special someone <3 You may have to meet some frogs before you meet your princess!

So let’s get to the photos!
