CREATING PERSONALIZED ART FOR THE HOME
As a family photographer, you’d guess that I have portraits of my family displayed all over my home.  Well you’re correct, I do.

Plus I have many gorgeous, smiling images of my kids, beautifully preserved in fine leather albums in my family room plus an image box on our dining room table.

If you walked through my home, you’d see I simply prefer fine art pieces. To me, it’s like living within a story.
This might sound rather unsentimental as an interior design choice for a parent, but it’s actually quite the contrary.
Fine art moves me — especially when it’s a piece I commission of my own family.

During the Winter 2011, I had one of my favorite family shoots with my children.  At the time, it was just my two daughters.  My son was born in 2013.

Not only are these portraits, a time in my children’s life.  But it shows their relationship as sisters.  Something I never experienced having two brothers myself.

As I walk up my staircase every day, I look fondly at those memories.  My girls were so young.

Art is an expression of oneself.
Art tells the stories we cannot tell.
Art makes sense of things when nothing else makes sense.
Art brings immeasurable joy.
Art brings acceptance.
Art heals.
Art brings in the light and gives it a shape.
Art never apologizes, but it always forgives.
Art does things for us that we cannot do for ourselves.
Art can outlive us all.
Art preserves.

I’ll always remember this portrait below of my daughter who would not allow me to photograph her.  Like most children, they just want to run around carefree.  Thank goodness my cousin Austin was there to help me.NJ Family PhotographerAs an artist, I’ve begun a personal journey to create this highly personal form of family storytelling in my own home.

I shoot with a purpose and a tale to tell.
I try to convey our family history in some extraordinary way, so that our children and their children will be able to retell it. And that’s what makes up a legacy.

More than beautiful pictures, these museum-quality, archival mounted images are there to make us feel deeply… and daily.

Do you have a story to tell? We can help you visualize and capture your family’s story in fine art. Give us a call. There’s a legacy waiting to be created!

NJ Boudoir Photographer | Art with Natalie Licini

NJ Boudoir Photographer | Art with Natalie Licini


Earlier this year, talking with one of my very best friends, we planned a girls trip at her new home in the mountains north of Seattle, Washington.   As an artist, I  look to do things differently and see and capture the world differently.  Planning this trip to Seattle, I hoped to be inspired to create new art.  I was overwhelmed with the beauty and lasting memories of my trip last week.  I wanted to share some of the beautiful portraits we made and a report of the time I spend with my dear friend Corinne Alavekios, known as one of the best Woodinville Senior Photographers.

I’ve been photographing for ten years and as a NJ Boudoir Photographer and I absolutely love making art pieces for our clients.  This trip has really fueled my creativity.

Monday: arrived in Seattle at 9:30am

What a warm and beautiful day. Seattle was breathtakingly beautiful. We drove to Corinne’s Woodinville studio.

{iPhone photo above}

What a charming town! It resembles Lake Garda, Italy with a roundabout in the town center surrounded by cypress trees.  I felt like I was truly in Italy. The town is picturesque.

We had an incredible lunch and relaxing first day catching up as photographers do. Life, family, business. Sharing stories about our wonderful clients and work ahead of us.

There were some unforgettable moments during this time.  My very first moment occurred pulling up to Corinne’s home in the mountains.  It completely took my breath away that I yelled

“Stop!  Slow down!”

I was in awe taking it all in and needed to loop around and come back in one more time. The mountains and golden fields made me gasp in wonder.

We dined in and drank cappuccinos laughing till late that evening listening to the best music station on her TV.  We started to plan a few inspirational shoots which suddenly included one of me – ahhh!

We discovered our mutual love of Tracey Chapman “Fast Car”.  Which eventually became the song of the trip.

Only my husband knows, I have a  love for hay bales from my travels through Tuscany. Just under a mile from her home in the distance were a field of hay bales. I nearly leaped out of the car to hug them I was so excited.  My love of hay bales sparked Corinne’s interest in planning a shoot with me in the hay bale fields later in the week. I was so excited.

Tuesday

We had a relaxing morning talking about art and things which inspire us.  We invited two beautiful students who were friends to come and model for us. One, a high school senior and another just days away from leaving for college.

We had lunch at a beautiful resort. One of the best chopped salads I’ve ever had.  Not to mention the spectacular views.  Here’s a quick iPhone photo Stevn took of us.

Just before our shoot we visited Corinne’s magnificent Rosyln studio with the famous blue couch. It was such a gorgeous spacious studio.  We selected gowns and dresses for our shoot later that day.  As a NJ boudoir photographer, this change of pace photographing seniors was SO much fun!  Her town of Roslyn was the setting for the TV show Northern Exposure.  It was so cool!

That afternoon we met the girls and drove with them to the mountains and river.  These gorgeous blondes were absolutely lovely and kind.  Driving over, we stopped to admire the beautiful lake in front of us.  Here’s an iPhone photo of the girls.

Somehow, Tracey Chapman came on the radio and Clare announced her love of Tracey too.  We listened and sang along badly to Fast Car as we drove to our spot.    This was my second unforgettable moment.

I’ve seen Corinne’s gorgeous river photos but never realized just how rainy it was.  Boy did I find out.  As a New Yorker, I typically photograph my clients in cute dresses and shoes. This shoot was in the mountains, forest and river rapids. Sneakers and hiking gear were crucial. Ow my!

As soon as we parked the sky’s opened up and it started to pour. The rain was intense and I turned to Corinne disappointed that we couldn’t shoot and she said “are you ready?” As in to shoot in the rain.

I was in disbelief that she would shoot in the pouring rain.  At first I photographed from the car with the window down. Yes! I’m a wimp. As the rain subsided a bit we all walked deep into the mountains in search of the river. Just as we found it the rain and thunder started in. Lightning too! Its soooo hard to compose and direct in the pouring rain. Never mind our poor senior girls who never modeled a day in their life. They were hysterical laughing whiping water off their brow. The cameras were getting soaked and so were we so we dashed back to the car and headed home. We were wet ringing out our hair, pools of water drenched the inside of Corinne’s SUV. I’ve never been this soaked in my entire life.

Omg it was crazy fun though.

Except for the scary lightning I could do this again.  This was my third unforgettable experience. 

With the recent forest fires and flash floods we headed home. Although, I had way too much fun and my creativity was off the charts. The rain halted my creativity and I was soooo bummed our shooting came to an end. But luckily the girls said they could return Thursday to continue our shoot. Yay!

Here are a few of my favorites with Alise & Clare in the rain.

We spend Tuesday evening relaxing with a glass of wine in hand, I started to fall in love with the mountains of Seattle and Corinne’s adorable puppy Brinkley.  He was the sweetest, most loving golden I’ve ever seen.  I think about him everyday and miss him.  Here are a few iPhone photos of the night.

Wednesday
Waking up to Corinne & Stevn’s delicious cappuccinos was such a treat.  We worked on business and marketing a little bit.  Then we went to photograph my new headshot at Corinne’s Roslyn studio.

I tried not to micromanage the shoot. I failed miserably.

Hahahha hut the pictures turned out awesome. Yay!!! My first new headshot in years.  There are a few variations, and this is one of my favorites.  Thank you Corinne for spoiling me.

On the way home we picked up ingredients to make salmon for dinner.  I thought I’d make everyone New York style guacamole to start. Stevn and Corinne loved it so much they used it as a garnish for the salmon. I was thrilled they did. Stevn was really over the moon and I was too so I asked if he liked any special desserts … Maybe a cheesecake?  He happened to love cheesecake so I offered to make my famous cheesecake. I never saw someone leave a house so fast to go grocery shopping. When he returned I made it. As you all know, cheesecakes need to sit overnight so naturally stevn had a piece for BREAKFAST on Thursday. LOL! Here are a few iPhone photos of the evening.

Thursday
We started the day off with cheesecake for breakfast and an early photo shoot in Corinne’s front yard with Alise & Clare. It was such a fun morning. We photographed through lunch time, laughing and laughing. The girls seemed to have just as much fun running thought the golden fields.  Here are some of my favorite portraits of these beautiful friends.

Just as we finished up Corinne instructed me to curl my hair as she prepared lunch.  She wanted to photograph me by the hay bales. The hay bales were just under a mile straight down from her home nearly in eyes distance. We needed gear and ladders so Corinne’s suggested we drive over on her tractor.  As a New Yorker, I didn’t know what to expect.  This was my fourth unforgettable moment. 

Omg I had no idea what I was getting into. I was in tears laughing so hard as she towed me, the cameras, fabric, and two ladders to this field. Mind you the tractor was going about 3 miles per hour. Which reminded me of a scene with Mr. Bean’s Holiday where he stole a moped HERE.  It was a hilarious bumpy ride. I couldn’t contain the laughter. We got stuck at one point on uneven ground and had to pull the tractor out of a ditch. I couldn’t believe we actually got it out.  What a fun experience.

Here’s a quick iPhone photo of this hysterical tractor.

And of course… just as we pulled up to our spot the rain starts in. Oye!!! Luckily Corinne’s vision was executed effortlessly and we were heading back home in no time.

After we arrived home we excitedly downloaded our photos and started editing a few favorites. What fun!!! Today felt like 3 days in one. It was so exciting and unforgettably funny. It was hard to go to sleep recounting all the stories from our week together. Some which we can’t remember or cant share just yet. Hehehehe

Friday: flight home was quick but saying goodbye was hard! I already miss my best friend. Its rare at this age to meet a special friend, who you love and respect and trust.  Corinne has been so good to me these 3 years. I feel so blessed for her support and friendship.   She’s already planning a trip to NYC to visit me next.  This was my last iPhone photo taken as I left the mountains.  Such a beautiful and serene place.

In a world, we were rarely take time for ourself or take a moment to slow down, this experience has been called “Amazing” & “Unforgettable” by some of our lovely clients who shared experiences on google:  HERE

I’m sure you could agree, each year seems to fly by.  I mean look at this Summer.  It’s nearly September – ahh!   Our clients may take a vacation or two and schedule in some relaxation, but why not pamper yourself with New Jersey Boudoir Photos by Je Revele.

Trust me when I say, our clients love every step of this experience, beginning with the phone pre-consultation, photo shoot and viewing appointment back at the castle. The best part of experience for us, is having our clients narrow down to pick their favorite portraits. So many clients say to us before we even meet that they’re not photogenic and rarely love photos of themselves.  In our viewing we are grateful when they have a hard time narrowing below 20 images.  But truthfully, that’s what we hope will happen. We want our clients to be overwhelmed with how truly gorgeous they look.  We never edit anything in our viewing appointment, which is not authentic.  We color correct the images, and you get to see yourself as you are.  Our goal is to take elegant boudoir photos of you.  Photos which could be displayed in your home and on your walls.

Here are some of our favorite boudoir photos taken over the last 2 years.

If you’re looking for elegant boudoir photos, we at Je Revele strive to take timeless boudoir photos of you.  Located in a historic New Jersey castle, centrally located to Manhattan, Bergen County and Pennsylvania, our mission is to capture authentic and beautiful photos with a hopefully liberating and memorable experience.

New Jersey Family Photographer | a Restoration Hardware Room

When our daughter Gianvieve was born in 2008, naturally we painted her room pink but in 2010 when my daughter Andrea was born, I did something different and kept her room white with dark brown accents.  I loved how timeless it was.  I still love it 4 years later.

We didn’t find out what we were having.  Luc was such a wonderful surprise.  As a woman its much easier to decorate for girls, so I turned to Restoration Hardware to help me design my little boys room.  As always, I want a room my kids can grow into.    My girls have pre-teen furniture and so does my son, excluding the crib which is temporary.

Here are a few of my favorite photos of my little man and his Restoration Hardware bedroom.

New Jersey Family Photos with Luc

New Jersey Family Photos | Luc Declan

I can’t believe my little boy turned one.  After having 2 girls, hearing my husband whisper “it’s a boy” tears ran down my cheek that day when Luc was born.  It was one of the happiest moments for us.

My little Luc has been walking since ten months old.  By twelve months old, he was running, throwing balls and so athletic.  He makes us so proud every single day.  Luc’s first words were:

H A P P Y

YES, they were “Happy”.  This picture below is my boy… the light of my life.  He’s so full of light and laughter.  He’s the best son and little brother.  His sisters love him with all of their hearts.  They hug him so tight I have to remind them to ease up.  Luc loves to sing and dance.  He learned how to say happy because we sing happy birthday to him almost every day. I know it sounds crazy, but we do!  hehe

I photograph my children year round, but this was extra special.  We brought his little rocking horse with us to the park.
