- Robin V.

I hadn’t been photographed in years because I am not photogenic. Glenna put me at ease and also showed me how to pose. Her background was pure artistry. I was thrilled with the finished pictures and also feel like I truly made a friend. I highly recommend working with Glenna!

"Glenna is the most talented, patient photographer I could’ve ever hoped to work with."

- Marcia D.

She’s patient, meticulous, and as professional as they get. I love that she takes everything about the individual into consideration. All my fears were relieved once I walked into her studio and by the end of the session, I was beyond satisfied. And my photos are absolutely beautiful.

"Glenna made my 50th birthday photoshoot experience one to remember."

- Brianna N.

Glenna is the absolute best photographer. My shoot could not have been any better. We had such an amazing and fun time and the photos we got could not have been any more incredible. 1000% recommend I will definitely be using her again for all my photos.

"My shoot could not have been any better."

- Antonella V.

Glenna is hands down the best photographer I've ever worked with. She took the time to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera and take the perfect photos! Can't wait to work with her again...family photos next!

"Her level of enthusiasm and love for photography is undeniable."

- Alexandra Y.

I am in love with the portraits she did!! They are emotional and stunning...They literally make my brain stop what I am doing when I see them and just pause. Gorgeous images, pleasure to work with, 100% recommend!

"Glenna is such an amazing artist and her vision and execution are second to none!"

- Melinda C.

She was able to capture a very special moment for my husband and I with our newborn son who we have been waiting for for a very long time. She was sensitive to our needs and went above and beyond to make sure that our baby boy was comfortable and safe, while capturing the most precious and beautiful moments. 

"She has a great eye and ability to capture great angles, poses and lighting."

What to expect working with a boutique photo studio

Being a small New Jersey photography studio gives me the unique opportunity to take the time to get to know each of my clients. Unlike other photographers, my policy is to never book more than one photo session per day. Also, I  don’t place a time limit on your photoshoot so I can provide intentional, uninterrupted time to get to know you and the story you want to tell.

Signature Experiences

Each Signature Portrait Experience is designed and customized to the smallest detail so that we reflect your story as accurately and authentically as possible.

We'll go through several consultation calls together, so I can get to know your style, personality, and vision. Whether you’re needing family photos, children's portraits, planning a surprise proposal or a Women's Empowerment Session, this is a truly collaborative, all-inclusive experience that begins when you inquire and lasts a lifetime.

The luxury, stress-free experience

After you reach out, we’ll schedule a call to get to know each other more. While text messages are instantaneous, I prefer jumping on a quick, low-pressure call to truly get to know you. I’ll ask questions about the story you want to tell, and we’ll get the wheels turning on some ideas on how to capture it.

01.

complimentary consultation call

Even before you step into my NJ photography studio, I’ll help you change the way you see yourself by showing you how much value you bring to this world.

In our consultations leading up to your session, we will discuss more concrete ideas, show you some props and client wardrobe from my studio we can incorporate into your session, talk about anyone you want to include in your photoshoot, and anything else you’d like to discuss.

We will also have a separate design and wardrobe consultation call to make sure you feel confident and fully prepared for your big day!

02.

the journey officially begins

It's important to me that I give every client my full attention and creativity. That's why I only book one session per day so that we don't feel rushed and we have time to bring your vision to life. My guarantee to you is that this experience will be nothing but enjoyable, relaxing, and fun.

03.

one session per day

Once your portraits are ready, we’ll set up an ordering session. Think of this more like a celebration — the kids will stay home, we’ll have time to thoroughly look through photos, have some refreshments, and make an event out of it! Every women's portrait session is followed immediately by an ordering session.
Whether you choose stunning wall portraits that you can walk by every day, a folio box you can share with loved ones when they visit, or an album that sits on your table for easy browsing, we can collaborate on which products you want so you get the most out of your investment. Plus, you will receive matching digital versions of your portraits.

Ordering Session

Children portraits

My specialties include portraits of Children. Whether we visit the beautiful beaches of the New Jersey shore, local parks, flower fields, or my studio (really, the state is our studio!), I'll create portraits that bring even the most subtle details of  your little one’s story to life. My goal? Make sure your child can see from the pictures you hang on the wall, just how loved they are. And you, will have the gift of a memory that will last a lifetime.

You already know how important your family legacy is, but maybe you have a hard time getting in front of the camera or you're not used to including yourself after years of giving so much to others. But believe me when I tell you that 20 years from now, you'll be so thankful you did. I know I do.
 
 Do you know who will be even more thankful?
Your family.
Whether we decide on a location-based shoot or a studio shoot, your family photography session has one main goal: to capture your families story.
