#tellyour21 - "What advice would you give your twenty-one year old self?"

I would understand more that life come in quarters. Life is quarters, I’d break it down in that way. 1 through 20 is a very important quarter. You know you basically graduate, get about two years of college in. And you know, try not to get into any type, you know, I would say incarseration positions. Because all of that plays a factor on your record. And try to make sure you get good credit, start credit now. Start building your credit if you can. And 1 though 20 if you do that, than the second quarter 20 through 40, you’ll have a better chance at basically setting up your retirement. Most people wait until they’re 40 to 60 to start, in the third quarter, to start thinking about retirement. But I would think about it between 20 and 40 if I had a chance. Which I did start thinking about it at that time…at 32 and that’s pretty much why I did some of the things I did. I own real estate…when I used to be homeless (laughs). So I did a lot of things that I wish I wouldn’t have done. Try to take a little more patience and focus on my future instead of just at that age, when you’re 20 you’re just having a good time, you wasn’t thinking about certain stuff. So it plays in effect now, what you do at an earlier age. If you do good doing that. If you take that very important quarter, which is that second quarter 20 through 40, if you do that, you’re third quarter is beautiful, 40 through 60. And you can imagine the fourth quarter, 60 - 80. Some things we would we could do, we can’t, but don’t let it stop you. Pour another glass of milk, pour it bigger and keep on going. Don’t cry about the spilled milk.. That’s my greatest advice that I can give to anyone.

I would have loved to travel, would have loved to have gone to college, learn how to be on a bike, ride a bike a lot, go on tours. Running, I would have loved to run. Learn to read more. Learn to have read more and teach other kids that, to be respectful.

"Ah, twenty one is the year when you can legally go crazy….don’t do it. Because it can turn into a mess. Just, have fun, but don’t go too crazy, that’s all I got.”

"My name's Jules Friedland and I'm 29 years old. I would advise my 21 year old self not to create expectations for myself that come from outside influences. To go at my own pace and to make sure I'm doing what makes me happy."

If I could talk to my 21 year old self, I would tell him to pay more attention to your surroundings. Have a focused plan on what your direction should be, your life should be. Listen to your father because he was right. Say everyday I feel more and more like I’m turning into my father and I’m proud of that. Do right by other people. And basically to focus on the task at hand because it’s gonna come back around to get you if you don’t.

I would say…to put a little more thought into your future endeavors, like you’re enjoying the moment, and that’s ok, but you’ve got to put a little more thought into what you’re going to do with your life. And that being said, it’s also good to pick areas of interest to you. However, weight out the odds and if there’s an area of interest such as plants, instead of settling more maybe a more manual role in that. Go ahead, get the education seek out a higher level so that you can continue on and not physically kill yourself (laughter).


Yup, yea, look at the different demands physically of any job. Weather that’s hairdressing, horticulture. And think about, realistically, how long can that go on and can this position even evolve into something else and strive for that something else.

To follow my brain and not my heart. To think more about my education and my future, than the love in my heart.


Hanging with a few Grownups

It's not always 50/50...

Jeff Heckman

As a new parent, I can clearly look back on the excitement, joy, and happiness that surrounded my wife's pregnancy. To look at her with such disbelief, "can you believe we're having a baby?!?" The abstract idea that her body is creating life, you two will become three, both of our lives will never be the same! That being said, my good friends from Brooklyn are walking down this very path and wanted to share their joy in a fun and creative way. Congrats to Brooke, Mike and can't wait to meet baby Fennen!

Santa Baby Sunday

Jeff Heckman

Most days in the Heckman household are pretty busy. So when we get a free day we like to spend time as a family. This Sunday we decided to mix business with pleasure kicking off Isaiah's first holiday season with a fun impromptu photo shoot in our living room. 

Isaiah was all game, which can be hit or miss depending on how hungry and tired he is, but with a full belly and a long nap behind him we got to work breaking out the christmas lights, santa hat, and decorations. The results were a living room exploding with Christmas spirit and the fun photos below of our Santa Baby.

Hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed making them. Contact us today to setup a holiday photo shoot of your own.

A Fall Morning with Frankie and Co.

Jeff Heckman

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp and the sun is shining; fall is in full effect.  And as many begin to embrace all that the season has to offer, Jake and Christie prepare for and embrace the new season in their lives - patiently anticipating the arrival of their first child, Frankie.

We had the privilege to work with the expectant couple during a maternity photo shoot at their home in Pine Beach, New Jersey.  A big thanks to the happy couple for letting us in to capture some of these blissful moments on their journey to parenthood.
