Photographer Montville NJ, Teen Modeling Photography

How handsome is this guy? Very, very handsome, right? Meet Josh, an aspiring model. I have been friends with his mom since 5th grade when she moved to my hometown in Bergen County. I’m not going to say how many years ago that was exactly, but let’s just say that we have been friends for a long, long time. :) Mom is gorgeous too so it’s no mystery where he gets the great looks from.

For our photo shoot we went to a park in Montville NJ. It was a lovely evening with beautiful light. Josh is an excellent model and so easy to work with. We had a lot of fun and laughs doing the shoot. I know we will be seeing more of him in the future. First stop a shoot with Tara McGlinchey Photography, next stop the cover of GQ. :)

I met this lovely couple on a gorgeous summer evening for a maternity photography session in Bergen County NJ. Before the session we had discussed different options for session locations. We decided to start with indoor photos. For these we focused our attention on more intimate maternity photography. Next we went to a park to capture some outdoor maternity photos. We chose the evening hours to take advantage of the “golden hour” right before sunset.

I love the photos from this session. I also love that they included their adorable dog in the maternity photo shoot. He was a great subject with a winning smile. Wouldn’t you agree?

Enjoy the photos!

One Year Old and Family Photography, NJ Baby Photographer

This post could have been called the One Year old and Family Photography Session that almost didn’t happen. As a natural light photographer I am at the mercy of the weather forecast. I have three apps on my phone and watch weather like a hawk.

Summer is fabulous time to do a session. The most wonderful light is found late on a summer evening. The downside of course is the promise of thunderstorms!

We were promised crazy storms the day of our session. Because of our schedules it would have been very difficult to find a date to reschedule so we just went for it. I am so glad that we did.

Our session started off cloudy and super windy looking as if it would be a wash out. The hair was blowing, the clouds were rolling in and I was getting a little uneasy about where this was headed. Luckily the evening turned around quickly with beautiful, warm sunlight. It was perfect!

This handsome was an excellent subject. He is almost one year old and teething but managed to be very happy throughout the session. We had a fabulous one year old and family photography session.

It was a pleasure to see this family again.  The recently added a new baby boy to their family.  He is absolutely perfect!  I was once again honored to be chosen by this family to do his newborn photography session.  You may recognize this beautiful mom (and pup!) from this maternity cover image I did for Expectant Mother’s Guide.

We also did a newborn photography  session with big sis.  She was a photographer’s dream as a newborn subject and still is at age (almost) 2.  What a doll she is.

One of the things I like most about my job is coming back to do sessions with growing families.  I love seeing the beautiful newborns grow from tiny babies into big babies and children.  This little girl is the best big sister.  She absolutely adores her newborn baby brother.  Seeing them together was, so sweet!  I know that she will be an excellent big sister.

As always, their Westie was a fabulous model.  I love that dog. :)

Thank you to the M family. :)

I met this lovely family in Manhattan for a newborn photography session.  This little guy is so cute and was very alert at our session.  I love his bright blue eyes.  A beautiful boy who is very loved, such a blessing.

“Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)”

written by John Lennon

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It’s getting better and better,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,
Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling Sean.

Tara McGlinchey is a Manhattan Newborn Photographer.  She also photographs newborns, babies and families in New Jersey and New York including Bergen County, Morris County, Rockland County, Westchester, Essex County and Union Country.  If you are interested in booking a newborn photography session, it is always best to schedule during the last trimester of your pregnancy. Having advanced, approximate notice is important so that I can keep my workload manageable around your due date. I will be able to “pencil” you in on my calendar according to your due date and then ask that you contact me as soon as possible after baby’s arrival to firm up the date and time. Sometimes clients do not think of doing a newborn session until after baby arrives. There is just so much to think about during pregnancy! This is fine too and I will make every effort to accommodate you in my schedule.
