A lifestyle family session with a twist! I am so excited to begin introducing video into my family portrait sessions. How amazing will it be to not only see your beautiful images and be able to print them, but to watch your family come to life in a modern day home movie??

Here’s an example of a family session in 2015 with bits of video added in. You get to see the motions and gestures between family members that you might not always see on camera.

Check out the Client Welcome Guide to find out more about these sessions and book yours today!!

You might have heard that I recently launched my first ever online course called Click & Capture Your Everyday. It’s a 6 week online program that teaches moms how to photograph their kids more creatively and with confidence. It’s perfect for the busy mom who prefer to learn at their own pace when it’s convenient for them. Students can access the course on their computer or mobile device to watch/read anytime. Even sitting in the pickup line at school! Plus, they can show up to class in their pj’s. Sounds pretty awesome, right? I get to meet and mentor moms all across the country! But what if you prefer to learn one-on-one? I’ve got something that is perfect for you!

Click & Sip is great for local Morris County, NJ moms who want to learn how to use their camera more effectively. We’ll talk about things like why your pictures are blurry, how to find good light, how to shoot in full sun, what you can do to make your pictures look more professional. I can show you what all those buttons do and how you can get off Auto! We can meet at a local coffee shop and chat or I can come to your home and show you how to shoot.

Sessions are scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. We’ll meet at a coffee shop local to Florham Park. Before our session, I’ll send over a questionnaire to find out a little more about you and any specific questions you have. If you book an in-home session, we’ll have a bit more time to chat and I can show you spots in your home that are perfect for capturing your kids. We’ll take a quick tour and I’ll point out where to find good light inside and out.

If you have a fancy camera and want to learn how to take better everyday images of your kids, then this is for you. Personalized, one-on-one training. Plenty of time to ask questions and show you how it’s done. Sign up today!
