Session Details

Hi, and thank you for stopping by.

I specialize in custom portrait photography of newborns, babies, children and families in New Jersey and New York. It is my goal to capture the essence of who you and your family are at this moment in time, a glimpse of your soul and spirit. My style is described as genuine. I strive to capture authentic emotion and connections in my photography.

You can expect me to direct using my expertise to get the best lighting and/or to set up an interesting angle, a hug, a tickle or something else to create a compelling photograph. I will then take a step back to observe natural interaction waiting for the perfect moment to click the shutter.

I take great care in presenting you with beautiful images that you and your loved ones will treasure for a lifetime. Each image is artistically hand edited to make the perfect print.

I am an on-location photographer and will come to your home or meet at a mutually agreed upon location. I've found that people are most at ease in their own homes and/or outdoors. If you prefer not to have a session in your home but don't have a specific location in mind, I would be more than happy to make a recommendation. There are many beautiful parks that I absolutely love to photo sessions in throughout New Jersey and New York.

Upon booking, I like to discuss what your needs are so I can create a unique session style for you. If you have specific shots or poses in mind, please let me know.

With a relaxed and comfortable approach, I leave plenty of time to capture your best images. My sessions are never rushed. As a seasoned mom and seasoned photographer, my expectations for each age are realistic. I am patient and flexible and like to find the humor in all situations.

Although each session differs, a typical session will last one to two hours. Newborn baby sessions will often last longer. I will always make time for breaks when necessary. My goal is to create beautiful portraits for you and I stay as long as it takes to meet that goal.

I love pets and welcome you to include yours in any photo session, if you wish.

Once a session is booked, I will go over clothing choices and other details to help you make the session everything you want it to be.
