How to select a studio for your family | Do you want to shoot indoors or outdoors?

It may feel cold outside now, but spring will be here before you know it!   Now is the perfect time to book your session with us.  Whether you have found us through friends and recommendations…or through google or yelp, having a photography studio in New Jersey we offer our clients gorgeous indoor and outdoor portraits they cherish forever.

Our clients enjoy having family photos taken each year in a new location.  Whether we photograph them in our studio indoors or outdoors, we photograph clients in their home or accompany clients on vacation, to the shore or a number of fabulous locations.  In addition to the beautiful grounds of the Castle, we have a number of other fabulous on-location sites where we photograph our clients outdoors.

These locations are never randomly selected. We like our portraits to have a special connection with our clients’ lives and the outdoor backdrop is often a critical part of this. Included with every session we do is a pre-shoot consultation by phone. During this conversation, we discuss you or your family’s personality, personal style and décor. This often helps guide us to the right location in the New York and New Jersey area.

Just to share a few examples…

These beautiful boys are second-generation Irishmen and their parents make frequent trips back to see their extended family across Ireland. Their grandparents were raised on farms, which is an important part of their lineage. I even had the honor of visiting those farms during my journey to Ireland!  We chose this beautiful historic farm in Monmouth County to honor their family heritage. They are truly favorites within our collection.

This gorgeous little girl lives in North Carolina and traveled to us to be photographed in New York City. Her parents are native New Yorkers through and through and while they live in the south, their heart always remains in the big apple. This session was a chance for their daughter to discover the magnitude and wonder of New York, which we photographed in Central Park. It really shows how magical New York can appear to a small child, as if something from a dream.

Another favorite spot, especially in March to April are the botanical gardens in Monmouth County, just minutes from Cate’s home. This horticultural center provides amazing color and foliage which is the perfect backdrop to any session. We’ve photographed everything from newborns to engagement sessions to communion portraits in this space, and yet it feels different every single time.

My bride and groom began their love story in Monmouth County, so they loved the idea of being photographed here. She loves Twilight and we felt that the dark thick brush that surrounded their romantic moment felt just right.

As natives of Staten Island, two of of the most special locations near and dear to our hearts are Historic Richmondtown and Snug Harbor. Those are the places where Natalie and I first began shooting sessions together, and there are literally hundreds of backdrops to vary our shoots. We’ve used this location for everything from fashion-inspired shoots to newborn sessions and family portraits.

We have a love of Victorian architecture and our locations reflect that. There are a number of private and public mansions where we like to photograph clients to set the mood. We photograph both on the grounds and indoors of these special settings.
