WHAT TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN?
I specialize in lifestyle portraiture for family, maternity, newborn and children. My focus is to capture the essence of your family, the personalities and the love and connection you all share.
Family lifestyle session usually takes place at the comfort of your home or chosen location. Maternity photo session takes place during 2nd or 3rd trimester. Newborn photography can take place as the hospital within first 48 hours or/and at the comfort of your home with first 3 weeks.

WHAT DOES YOUR NATURAL LIGHT STUDIO LOOK LIKE? AND WHERE IS IT LOCATED?
Our natural light studio is filled with beautiful window light and resembles a home environment. To get a better idea of how it looks, you can also see the photos of the studio below. We are conveniently located near Clifton, NJ of Northern NJ – near NYC.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A PHOTO SESSION?
All photo sessions begin with a pre-session styling consultation. In the planning stage we decide what the session will focus on as I strive to capture you and your family in a natural, organic way. Our discussion will include your family members, your personalities, favorite activities to do as a family, and clothing choices and styles.
At the photo session, I will spend as much time as necessary to get the images you’d like. Sessions are both a relaxed and fun time for the whole family as I capture your family's relationships, personalities, and connection. On average, children or family photo sessions last about 90 minutes. In contrast, newborn sessions generally last longer at 2-3 hours with plenty of time for baby feeding, cuddling and changing. Photo session investment starts at $290
WHEN CAN WE VIEW OUR SESSION IMAGES?
An image viewing and ordering session will be scheduled within 3 weeks of your photo session date. Images will be presented on a slideshow which you can then go over to select the images you love. During the viewing and ordering session, we will also look over the various ordering options (i.e. heirloom quality albums, wall art, digital collections, etc.) to help you find just the right portrait selection for you and your home.
You will also be presented with a complimentary customized visual design for your walls. This will allow you to envision which images will look best on your walls and help you determine sizing.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
You can wear anything you want, although some patterns and colors will lend themselves better to timeless images that you will love for years to come. There is no need to be matching but you should try to have your family dress within the same color scheme. Another thing to consider (and try to avoid) when choosing outfits is large patterns, distracting logos, and clashing bright colors. The focus should be you and your family, therefore less is more. More detailed clothing guide is provided upon booking your session. Hair and make up services are also available upon request.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
Sessions are booked by appointment only, typically 3-4 weeks in advance or more. Pregnant moms interested in booking newborn or hospital sessions, should book in advance while still pregnant. But, sometimes there are still openings available, so email anytime! As for newborn sessions, we can schedule a photo session date and if your little one arrives earlier or later than planned, give us a call and we will gladly reschedule.
WHERE WILL OUR PHOTO SESSION TAKE PLACE?
You can actually choose between 3 options as to where you would like to have your photo session take place. You can have your photo session in the comfort of your own home, at your favorite place to be i.e. Central Park, the beach, or at our natural light studio.
DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?
I work comfortably in both film and digital formats. In fact, many clients seek me out specifically for the unique quality and richness of the "film look." All my film work is digitized after developing, giving me the freedom to make adjustments and backup copies just as I do for my digital-based work
