A Family Heirloom

This definition of 'Family' says it all!!  We were thrilled this young couple and their children sat for an Heirloom portrait.  Someday the kids will display it for their children and the continuity and memory of this important tradition will be handed down to a new generation.

Daniel and Carolyn

This is such a busy time of year for the Studio.  And we especially enjoy seeing sibling groups or families come together to make a special memory.  We try to capture the spirit and personality of each individual so that we can create an heirloom portrait that will be remembered for generations.

This 7 month old Jack-Russell puppy has so much love to give!  She is sweet and cuddly and thrives on walks and exercise.  She is waiting for her forever home at the RBARI animal pet shelter where I volunteer.  If you or anyone else you know is looking to 'adopt some love'--feel free to give them a call at 201-337-5180.

Brian and Lauren

Another important moment to pop in at your favorite portrait studio is when one of your young adults is a senior year in high school or getting ready to go off to college.  At some point in the very near future, it will not so easy to gather your children together as they begin to control their lives and destinies apart from their nuclear family.  Brian and Lauren were wonderful subjects and we were able to create a photograph that their parents will have forever to remind them of this particular time in their young lives.

Adorable Siblings

These five adorable siblings came to our studio recently and we had lots of fun with them!  They were so loving and caring about each other--it was quite touching .  We created portraits of them alone and in pairs and all the hugging and big smiles were genuine and here are the results!!  It is so important to capture the relationships between brothers and sisters--the memories will bring such pleasure to them in the future when they are moms and dads themselves.  And in the meantime the busy parents of these cuties have heirloom portraits for their walls to enjoy every day!

Families are LOVE!

Families are LOVE!  We have been photographing these little ones since they were born--Jane and I just adore these three little boys.  Their mom and dad are funny and delightful and never take anything too seriously, especially when one of the kids decides to act up.  All five of them are full of spirit and life and glee and we just enjoy our sessions with them to the fullest.  After we are done with the sitting there are always sticky hugs and wet kisses for us as we walk out of the studio.  It is such a privilege to follow them as they grow from babies to toddlers to conversational beings.

Don't put off a portrait session and let the years slip by when they will no longer fit on your laps!

We are now photographing dogs from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc (RBARI) in Oakland.  Devoted volunteers are bringing these beautiful animals to our studio so we can capture their sweetness and energy for their adoption pics.  This is Franny who lived in a small cage in a puppy mill for her whole life.  She is such a cutie--so many dogs at the shelter need a forever home.  If you are interested or know someone who would love to adopt or foster cats or dogs, please contact them at 201-337-5180.

Katie came to us recently for a Maternity Session and we utilized her grandmother's shawl.  When she gives birth, we will be photographing her little one in that same shawl.  A powerful and lovely memory to pass down from generation to generation.

We are now offering Complimentary Maternity AND Newborn Sessions.  We will be creating studio books with this portraiture.  Please give us a call and we can tell you about the session and gift image you will receive.  We would love to hear from you!  (201-692-1892)
