I love my job and have worked and lived in Colts Neck, NJ for 23 years. Prior to opening my studio in Colts Neck, I worked in NYC as a Fashion Photographer. Working with clients like Macy's, Toys R Us, Nanette wear, Vogue patterns and divisions of many designers for high end children's wear.
What do my baby and I need to wear to our session?
For posed sessions, all you need is your baby! No clothes are needed unless you have something you would like he or she photographed in. Mom and dad should dress natural. Bring two outfits as one may get pooped on. For siblings dress them in natural colors as well. Jeans, white shirts., etc. Ask me for more details about this and we can discuss more options. I have everything in the studio you can possibly imagine for your newborn session. No need to bring anything unless there is something you really want photographed. Please take a look at my portfolio so you know what to expect with the simplicity of the session. I do not use many objects in my photos besides a simple basket, etc., as I believe the baby need to be the focus of the photo and not a prop. I tend to use more neutral colors, with of course the fun color pop or pretty headband, bonnet etc (which I have a ton of). I of course am happy to photograph something if you have something in particular you want to bring, just let me know before our session.
What can I expect at my session?
When you arrive at your session, we will do all family and sibling shots then move onto all the posed shots of your baby at the end. I will have the studio set up to start with the posed shots.
How long will my session last?
Shoots typically take 1-5 to 2.5 hours. I always say quality over quantity with newborn sessions. Some babies like to sleep, some do not! We just go with the flow. The sibling portion lasts about 15 minutes. I like to grab the one epic sibling shot, the one great family shot, 1 or 2 mom and dad shots and the rest we focus on the baby.
