Branch Brook Park – Newark, NJ Cherry Blossoms, Part 2

Hey Guys!

Hope the week is going well for you all ! I’ve been pretty busy or at least trying to keep myself busy. Here are the part 2 pictures from the Patricia Chambers Cherry Blossoms Grove at Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ. I am proud to be from jersey when you learn that your local county park is the oldest in America. Also, they have the most Cherry Blossoms in this side of the hemisphere, totaling over 4,000. You can even see in the metal tags on each tree. If you’re visiting Northern New Jersey or New York City, come stop by for pictures and a lovely afternoon stroll.

Enjoy! and don’t forget to visit my portfolio if you would like to book me for your event!

Hello friends,

I know it has been spring for a couple weeks, but the weather is getting better in the northeast and the buds are budding. haha.

Today’s post is part 1 of my annual Newark’s Cherry Blossom Festival blog post. I enjoy going to the park and checking out the natural blossoming of the Cherry Blossom. Branchbrook Park in Newark, NJ is one of the nations oldest county parks and has an astounding collection of over 4, 000 cherry blossoms.

As the sun sets, enjoy the silhouette and welcome spring.

Family Portrait Friday


Today is a new day! With a week full of bad news, I still remain positive. We all have set backs in our life; however, we can’t let them pull us down. Sometimes, you just need a family to help pull you up. Families are important to me.

Family is the people that will be there for you when no one will. Family will spoon feed you those same words of encouragement that you have fed them through their lowest moments. I think this Friday is a dedication to family. They don’t have to be blood to be your family, they just have to love you unconditionally to be your family–and vice versa.

This shoot, located at Verona Park in New Jersey, was for a client of mine that had an ARMY of sons; furthermore, she basically has starting five! During our shoot, you could see the love Josephine and her family had. I really enjoyed taking their pictures. That day will be remembered because I helped create pristine memories that they could look at ever day in their living room. Contact me if you would like me to take pictures of your family.

Portrait Tuesday!

Hello Friends,

Hope your Tuesday is going well and smoothly. Today I’m going to showcase some business portraits I took for a colleague of mine, Douglas Lomonaco. Douglas is a dean at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey. He told me we wanted to acquire some professional business portraits. I brought my “portable studio” to the office of student affairs and took some professional portraits for him and the staff. They came out awesome and just wanted to share a few. If you would like to make any professional portraits inquires, please contact me

Happy Maternity Monday!

Hello Gang!

Happy Maternity Monday! I hope all is well. I’ve been thinking about life a lot and today inspired me to illuminate life. We’re ALL created by two human beings–thank you mom and dad. As men, we don’t feel what women may go through during their pregnacy. I am thankful I am a man; however, I am more thankful that there’re women out there that battle through the toughest battles to create life. I wish I would shoot more portraits of mothers to just appreciate their sacrifice and love for this new being that was created.

I challenge you all to look at things different. If you are a pregnant mother or just had a baby, thank you!. I wish you all the best with your new creation and take pictures! We never know when it’s our last day. P.s. I recieved news that my aunt in Kenya passed away this morning. Send some prayers this way for me and to Kenya.

Much Love!

Eric Ogada
