What kind of photographer are you?
I'm a New Jersey based Lifestyle photographer who uses natural light to capture your family being as close to their most loving and connected selves as possible. Imagine a perfect day with your family. My job is to get you there, then step back and photograph it all happening.
Where will my session be held?
We will meet either at your home, in a park or even in your downtown for a trip to the ice cream shop. If there is a particular place that is meaningful to you and your family, that's great too! I'm open and welcome the opportunity to shoot in fun and unexpected places.
How long will my session be?
Most of my Family sessions last about an hour. If I notice that the kids are done before that time and feel I've got enough, we can end it early. If everyone is having a blast, I'm happy to shoot longer. Don't worry, I know an hour doesn't seem very long, but I can promise you a full gallery with lots of variety.
What will my session be like?
After spending a few minutes saying hello and getting to know each other, we will start right away. I will place you in a pose and then ask you to bring those poses to life! That might mean telling jokes or a surprise tickle, maybe a tight snuggle. I'll encourage you with questions and suggestions, sometimes I might slip in a corny joke...I apologize ahead of time. ;-) My goal is to get you images of everyone together that look totally natural and connected. I won't often ask you to look at the camera and actually prefer (most of the time) that you don't. I want your gallery to look like no one was there but you and your loved ones and that you were having THE BEST time together!
What should I wear?
I used to think, "wear what you like and it will work", well...I've had a change of heart when it comes to what to wear during a session. The reason for this is because more than anything, I want YOU to be the focus of attention in your images, not your outfit. So a few simple guidelines: 1. No logos. 2. No neon colors. 3. Nothing too bright (bright reds, greens, and yellows pull attention away from the subject). 4. Neutrals ROCK! Grays, pinks (think dusty pink) blues, and beiges are beautiful and look good on almost everyone, any time of the year. Subtle floral prints are beautiful! If it's fall, golds and rust colors are also gorgeous. Here is my most important tip; if you think you know what you want to wear, take a photo of yourself in it with your phone and send it to me. I'll give you my honest opinion. I want you to LOVE your gallery after all. :-)
How far out are you booked?
I usually booked one season out. So, if you are looking to book a foliage session, it's best to contact me during the summer.
Will I get the digitals from my session?
Yes, you will. I'm an all-inclusive photographer. I give you hand-edited, high resolution files and one 8x10 print from your session.
Can I order prints and products from you?
Yes, absolutely! I'm happy to take care of that for you and will deliver you beautiful products that you'll come back to look at again and again.
